The two top teams in the Western Conference this season, the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, will face each other in the 2012 Western Conference Finals set to kick off this Sunday in San Antonio.
This playoff series was all but inevitable as the Spurs swept their way to the Conference Finals and the Thunder dispatched the Lakers in five games.
This will be a fantastic series as the two teams are close to being evenly matched. Both teams are rolling in the playoffs, have their own “Big 3,” can play an up-and-down game, and play defense when needed. Where the Spurs hold the edge is with their depth, experience and coach (Gregg Popovich) while the Thunder have more youth on their side.
But now that the series is set, how did the two teams fare against one another this season? San Antonio won the regular season series (2-1) versus OKC but that was the regular season.
Check out the numbers from their three meetings this season (via nba.com).
