Just when you thought the 2014 Western Conference Finals couldn’t get any worse for the second-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder, they did on Wednesday with the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs pouring it on 112-77 to take a 2-0 series lead.
San Antonio dominated the opener 122-105 over OKC despite giving up a double-digit advantage during the third period. Game 2 was all Spurs, too, as the Thunder, in spite of once leading 36-33 during the second quarter, matched their worst defeat in franchise playoff history (the Seattle SuperSonics also lost by 35 points).
The game had plenty of drama early with Tim Duncan shooting a first-period 3-pointer and picking up a technical as well as Derek Fisher finding Nick Collison for a 0.1-second swat nothing-but-netter. At the end of the night, though, Danny Green‘s seven 3s propelled San Antonio to an easy victory.
