The San Antonio Spurs took another step in realizing their quest of getting back to the NBA Finals by thrashing the Oklahoma City Thunder 89-117. The beating was thorough and precise and the Spurs played high level basketball against a very, very good basketball team. It is exactly what you should get from a #1 seed taking on a #2 seed Western Conference finals.
“We absolutely believe we can (in OKC Game six). It’s a tough place to play, and they’re going to be fighting for their lives,” Forward Tim Duncan said after the game. “But we feel we can play the right way. We take care of the ball. We do the things we’ve been talking about all series long, there’s no reason why we can’t win it.”
