Could this get any easier for San Antonio?
The Thunder put up a good fight, but their defensive shortcomings, particularly in the paint led to another 30-point blowout. The Spurs just seem to bide their time and wear down their Western Conference Finals opponent. At least int he comforts of the AT&T Center.
San Antonio posted 54 point sin the paint in an easy 112-77 win over Oklahoma City. Again, it was a five-point game with about two minutes left in the first half. The Spurs opened things up with a quick run before the half to lead by 12. It was never close after that. Not even close.
Tony Parker scored 22 points. Danny Green had 21. Tim Duncan had 14.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook could not match this time. They each had 15 points. And the Thunder gave in to panic and took quick shots to try to get back in. That only played into San Antonio’s hands.
And that is how you get a rout.
Back to the drawing board for Game Three.
