    Amazing Thunder knocking on NBA Finals door

    Jun 5, 2012

    Kevin Durant scored 27 points, 22 coming in the second half, and Russell Westbrook added 23 points and 12 assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Spurs 108-103 in San Antonio on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) and moved to the brink of the NBA Finals.

    It was a huge road win for the Thunder, who now lead the Western Conference Finals 3-2, looking in firm control as San Antonio continues its slide.

    The Spurs, conference leaders entering the playoffs and winners of 20 consecutive games including Games One and Two of the Conference Finals, have now lost three straight.

    Manu Ginobili scored 34, hitting 14 in the first half in his first start since March and only his eighth this season.

    Tony Parker had 20 and Tim Duncan came up with 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Spurs.

    James Harden added 20 points for the Thunder, who will try to seal the deal in Game Six in Oklahoma City where they remain perfect this postseason.

    The Eastern Conference Final between Miami and Boston is tied at two games apiece.
