Thunder to Open Series Against Spurs

The first game of the Western Conference finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs is tonight at 8 p.m.

The Thunder swept the Spurs 4-0 in the season series. But Serge Ibaka played in all of those games. OKC will likely have to get past San Antonio without Ibaka for likely the duration of the series due to his calf injury.

Two seasons ago, the Spurs raced out to a 2-0 series lead against the Thunder in the Western Conference finals before OKC ripped off four straight wins en route to the finals.

The game will be aired on TNT.
