Through two games of the Western Conference Finals, the San Antonio Spurs have simply obliterated the Oklahoma City Thunder by an average of 26 points. The series resumes in Oklahoma this Sunday and it will likely be a night of desperate play by the Serge Ibaka-less Thunder. The Thunder were able to conquer a 0-2 mountain back in the 2012 Conference Finals, winning four straight through physical athleticism and stifling defense. But this is 2014 and these teams are hardly comparable to the squads that clashed in the recent lockout season. This is not the same mountain.
[Update: Serge Ibaka’s status has been upgraded to “day-to-day.” Whether the Thunder exaggerated the grade 2 sprain or Ibaka’s body just recovered quicker than anticipated, we’ll never know.]
Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) take an in-depth look at the first two games and jabber on about what adjustments either team might make. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.
