Kevin Durant and Tony Parker are putting on a show in the first quarter of Game 2 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs, but it's the home team that currently has the upper hand. Parker's gotten a bit more out of his supporting cast in the first quarter than Durant has, and the Spurs lead 28-22 at the end of the first quarter.
Russell Westbrook spent a good period of the first quarter taking more contested shots than Scott Brooks (or anyone) likes to see. Eventually, Durant started to get more involved in the game and take over the offensive load. Oklahoma City were down by 10 points, but Durant helped to bring them back into the game in the middle of the first quarter. He has 12 points on 5-7 shooting. James Harden made an appearance off the bench late in the quarter and he's been effective as well, with six points in just four minutes on the floor.
Parker currently has 10 points on 5-7 shooting to go along with three assists. He had one particularly impressive alley-oop to Kawhi Leonard and set up Danny Green for a wide-open three on a great drive and kick during another sequence. He's been San Antonio's best player, and arguably the best player on the floor thus far.
