Spurs Vs. Thunder Halftime Score: Oklahoma City Up 47-46

In what's been a fast-paced up-and-down first half, the Oklahoma City Thunder have edged out to a 47-46 lead over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

For large parts of the first half, the Thunder played extremely small line-ups with only one big man on the floor.

As a result the tempo of the game was sped up, which caused some trouble for the San Antonio offense, as the Spurs turned it over 13 times.

San Antonio got a huge boost off the bench from Manu Ginobili, who had 10 points on 4-7 shooting, including a spectacular step-back three-pointer as the first quarter ended.

Ginobili has dramatically outplayed his fellow left-handed sixth man, James Harden, who has only 3 points on 1-9 shooting. The Thunder's two other stars, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, have picked up the slack, scoring 23 points, albeit on 22 shots.
