Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder can punch a ticket to the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

The 2012 Western Conference Finals continue on Wednesday night, as the series shifts back to Oklahoma City -- where it could also end on Wednesday night. After opening the series in an 0-2 hole, the Oklahoma City Thunder have rallied to win three straight games and push the San Antonio Spurs to the brink of elimination.

Many wrote off the Thunder after San Antonio took the first two games of the series, but Kevin Durant and the Thunder are now just a win away from clinching a spot in the 2012 NBA Finals.

The Thunder were able to win a pivotal Game 5 and swipe home court advantage away from the Spurs, thanks in large part to Durant's 27 points. Russel Westbrook added 23 and James Harden added 20 as the Thunder held off the Spurs and a 34 point effort from Manu Ginobili in a 108-103 win.

Now on Wednesday night, the Thunder have a chance to make history -- and they can do it on their home court, where they went 26-7 during the regular season, and are a perfect 6-0 so far in the postseason.

Tipoff is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. CT, from Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Televised coverage can be found on TNT.
