The Oklahoma City Thunder were able to pick up a big-time victory Monday night in Texas against the San Antonio Spurs. With the 108-103 victory, Oklahoma City now has the 3-2 series lead with the chance to close out the Western Conference Finals at home.
San Antonio will have to travel back to Oklahoma, where the Spurs lost both of their games earlier in the series, for Wednesday night's contest. The game is scheduled for a 9 p.m. ET tip-off on TNT.
The Spurs' backs are against the wall, so they have a bit more incentive to win, considering a loss will mean the end of the road for an aging team. If they're able to stave off elimination for one more game, though, San Antonio will get a chance to close out the series at home on Friday night.
