The Spurs take a 2-0 lead to Oklahoma City tonight for game three of the Western Conference Finals. The Spurs have been brutally efficient on offense this entire post-season, and particularly in this series as they are shooting 54% from the field and 45% from three while turning it over only 10 times a game. It's very tough to beat a team playing that well with the ball. Their ball and player movement has been spectacular, and has left the Thunder waving at air.
For the Thunder, they get their defensive star back for game three, as Serge Ibaka has been named to the starting lineup. He did not practice yesterday, however, and it remains unclear how effective he can be. Meanwhile, nobody on the Thunder have stepped up to help take the load off their two stars, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, which has allowed the Spurs to swarm Durant especially and make things very difficult on him.
If nothing changes in Oklahoma City, this could be a very short series.
