Spurs slam Thunder in Game 2

Things are getting ugly in the Western Conference finals, after the San Antonio Spurs followed up a strong Game 1 with an earth-shattering Game 2. Danny Green hit seven 3-pointers. Russell Westbrook was held to 15 points on 24 shots and Kevin Durant 15 on 16. In the end, the host Spurs absolutely smashed the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-77 to take a 2-0 series lead. Is this thing over, or will the Thunder get back in it in OKC?

What do you make of the Spurs' 112-77 win in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals?

Spurs claim Game 1

The Oklahoma City Thunder knew they would have it tough against the San Antonio Spurs without Serge Ibaka. It showed Monday, as OKC kept things close for three quarters, but saw Gregg Popovich's crew pull away in the final 12 minutes to earn a 122-105 win in Game 1. Things don't look great for Kevin Durant & Co.; can they turn it around?

OKC-LAC controversial Game 5

The Thunder overcame a seven-point deficit with 49 seconds to play in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead over the Clippers in the Western Conference semifinals. The game took a controversial turn when Oklahoma City was awarded a possession with 11.3 seconds remaining in the game on a ball Doc Rivers believed went out of bounds off a Thunder player. On the ensuing possession, Russell Westbrook was fouled by Chris Paul on a 3-point attempt, setting up what would turn out to be the game-winning free throw attempts. Did the officials cost the Clippers the game? How will the rest of the series play out?

  • Did the officials make the right call near the end of the Thunder-Clippers game, when the ball was deemed to go out of bounds off an L.A. player?

  • Doc Rivers said he thinks the officials awarded a late possession to the Thunder near the end of Game 5 as a makeup call for missing a foul on Matt Barnes. Do you agree?
