Score: 111 - 120
Point Spread: -4½/-109 San Antonio
5* WESTERN CONF FINALS BLUE CHIP GAME OF THE MONTH: Spurs -4.5
Oklahoma City hit a meaningless 3-pointer as time expired to cover a 5-point spread in Game 1. The Thunder actually hit three 3's in the final seconds that didn't matter. It's not going to keep me from backing the Spurs again in Game 2.
San Antonio showed what they are capable of with a 39-point 4th quarter in Game 1. I look for a lot more of that over the course of the entire game tonight. I expect San Antonio to win this game by at least 10-points and I wouldn't be surprised at all if it ended up closer to 20.
Oklahoma City doesn't have enough offensive weapons to keep up with the Spurs. The only real advantage the Thunder have is Kevin Durant, as Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili at worst cancel out Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Where the Spurs have the biggest edge is the supporting cast. Most of the Thunder's role players thrive more on the defensive end than they do offensively. It will be San Antonio's bench that dominates this series and gets them an easy win at home tonight! BET THE SPURS!
