June 6, 2012 – Oklahoma City, OK
The chills were felt all the way to Miami as the Oklahoma City Thunder move on to the NBA finals after winning their fourth consecutive game over the San Antonio Spurs, 107-99. Initially down two games to none, the Thunder were able to win two games at home and then one more on the road, taking the Western Conference championship trophy in front of the home crowd.
The Thunder’s Kevin Durant had 34 points and 14 rebounds, Russell Westbrook added 25 points, James Harden with 16 and Serge Ibaka putting in 10. Durant, at his own insistence, played the entire game.
The Spurs’s Tony Parker scored 29 points, with contributions from Tim Duncan (25), Stephen Jackson (23) and Manu Ginobili (10).
The Spurs led at the half by 18 points, but the Thunder rallied in the third quarter, outscoring the Spurs 32-18 and again in the fourth, 27-18.
The Thunder meet either the Boston Celtics or the Miami Heat. The Heat, in particular, hope their script doesn’t read the same as the Spurs, as they also won the first two games and lost the next three.
