Thunder Vs. Spurs: Game Preview, TV Info And More

Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder are looking to break a losing streak against Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs.

Sunday's meeting between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs will be the final game of a three games in three days stretch for the Thunder.

The Thunder took both of the first two games of the stretch, a home-and-home setting against the Houston Rockets. Oklahoma City defeated Houston 109-94 on Friday night but struggled in the rematch one night later eventually prevailing 98-95.

Now they will get a red hot Spurs team that has won three straight since losing Manu Ginobli for at least two months with a fractured hand. Many figured that Ginobli's loss would hurt San Antonio's offense but it hasn't happened yet as the Spurs rolled up a season high in points last night in a 121-117 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Oklahoma City enters the game with a six-game losing streak against San Antonio. Last season, Kevin Durant averaged 23 points against the Spurs which was 4.7 less than his season average. San Antonio was also able to do a good job against Russell Westbrook who is shooting just 32.6 percent from the floor in his last five outings against the Spurs.
