Off the back of a huge night from Tony Parker Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs moved ahead 2-0 in their best of seven Western Conference finals series with a 120-111 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Parker was inspirational with a 34 point and 8 assist performance, while TIm Duncan contributed with 11 points and 12 rebounds to help the Spurs secure their 20th straight victory. Kevin Durant led the Thunder as usual with solid numbers of 31 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists, while Russell Westbrook was on song with figures of 27 points and 8 points. In a high scoring affair, San Antonio put on a clinic for fans, shooting 55% from the floor, while going 11-26 (42%) from behind the arch. Behind by as many as 22 points in the third quarter, Oklahoma City rallied in the fourth to close the lead to only 9 after the final buzzer. Aussie Patrick Mills did not get any game time.
