Thunder at Spurs (Spurs lead 1-0)

The Oklahoma City Thunder will go into tonight looking to steal homecourt advantage from the San Antonio Spurs, who currently hold the series lead 1-0.

The Thunder, who will be without Serge Ibaka for the remainder of the playoffs, will need to figure out a way to work out their perimeter defense in his absence. The Thunder were annihilated in the paint in game 1, getting doubled by the Spurs at  a clip of 66-32.

Despite this, the Thunder managed to keep it competitive through 3 quarters, with Durant and Westbrook going off in the third. Once the fourth hit, the Spurs did Spurs-like things, took Durant and Westbrook out of the game, and coasted to a comfortable victory.

The Spurs will stick with what's working, and what has always worked for them. The Thunder will need to figure out how to defend inside, with Durant occasionally stepping in at power forward.
