June 4, 2012 – San Antonio, TX
The home team has finally lost in the Conference finals. The visiting Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the San Antonio Spurs in San Antonio 108-103. The Thunder now lead the series three games to two in the Western Conference finals, winning three straight games.
Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 27 points while Russell Westbrook added 23 and James Harden scored 20. Durant scored all but five of his points in the second half while Harden scored 12 in just the fourth quarter. One of those baskets came when he drained a three-pointer from the left wing with 28.8 seconds to play, giving the Thunder a 106-101 lead, one that would stand.
Manu Ginobili led the Spurs with 34 points, Tony Parker scored 20 and Tim Duncan added 18 points and 12 rebounds. The Spurs committed 21 turnovers leading to 28 points, something Coach Gregg Popovich was not thrilled about.
The Spurs are now on the brink of elimination in this best of seven series. The last time they lost three in a row was during the 2010-11 season, the last two games of the regular season and the first game of the postseason.
