Manu Ginobili 'Can't Wait' For Spurs-Thunder Match-Up In NBA Western Conference Finals

NBA fans aren't the only ones excited and ready for the Western Conference Finals featuring the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder. The players also seem to be excited about the match-up and Manu Ginobili, the Spurs star guard, took to Twitter to discuss his feelings.

Ginobili should feel confident, as should every Spurs player. They easily handled another young dynamic team with the LA Clippers in round two that featured an elite point guard in Chris Paul and high-scoring forward in Blake Griffin. That's the same basic definition of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

However the Thunder also have James Harden in tow and they're simply the better player. They made short work of a veteran team in the first two rounds, so both teams are enjoying a nice momentum heading into the Conference Finals. It will be interesting to see just how close the series becomes.

Here is a look at the schedule for the first two games:
Game 1 - 5/27 - 7:30 PM (CT)‎
Game 2 - 5/29 ‎- 8:00 PM (CT)
