Twenty consecutive wins would be an incredible feat at any point in the NBA calendar. To do so in the playoffs is another level of domination entirely. Even the fresh legs and incredible athleticism of the Oklahoma City Thunder can do nothing but shake their heads at the end of the day. The San Antonio Spurs cannot be stopped.
Last night's 120-111 win in game two of the Western Conference Finals puts the Spurs in a strong position to win the seven-game series, even as the venue switches to Chesapeake Energy Arena in OKC. The Spurs were in total control last night, going up by 11 at halftime and making no secret who the better team was thus far.
The Spurs had incredible ball movement and shot 55 percent from the floor, even with Tim Duncan shooting 2 of 11. Tony Parker had 34 points and Kawhi Leonard had 18 points and 10 rebounds. Manu Ginobili added 20.
For the Thunder, they were paced by Kevin Durant's 31 points. James Harden had 30 and Russell Westbrook had 27, but the team shot 42 percent overall. Derek Fisher went 2 for 11 on the night and Serge Ibaka was 3 for 11, so it's hard to keep pace with a team like the Spurs.
The Thunder have more questions than answers at this point heading back for game three.
