The San Antonio Spurs have now won 20 consecutive games. They blew past the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs, winning by an average of 18 points. They were just as effective in round 2 against the LA Clippers, when every game other than the closeout game was a double digit win. Included in that run was game 3 against LA in which the Spurs were down 24 at one point, but went on to win going away.
The Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder figured to be much more difficult for the Spurs. On paper, it shaped up as an epic clash between two of the NBA’s best teams. The Thunder are led by one of the leagues best point guards in Russell Westbrook, the best 6th man in the NBA in James Harden and arguably the best player in the league in Kevin Durant.
But through two games, San Antonio has looked like will make easy work of the Thunder as well. The Spurs took the first two games on their home court and looked extremely strong in doing it.
