Western Playoff Finals: Thunder vs. Spurs
Aedan


The Western Conference Playoff Finals are here. The two competing teams are the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs were great in their regular season with an amazing final eighteen game winning streak. They kept on going through the playoffs and won their first ten games in the playoffs. But OKC put an end to that streak in the third game of the Western Conference Finals. The Spurs won the first two games but OKC won the third and ended the Spurs’ ten game winning streak in the playoffs.

The Thunder was also great in their regular season and ended the season with the best record in the Western Conference. In the Western Playoff Finals the Thunder lost their first two games, so the future wasn’t looking too bright for them. I thought that there would be no greater matchup in the Western Playoff Finals than the Thunder going up against the Spurs, and I was right, for the first few games.

The first few games of the seven game series were very good ones. The spurs won their first two games at home. But then the thunder won their first two games at home, which tied the series 2-2. Then the fifth game was at San Antonio, so the Spurs were at home. Against all odds the Thunder won that game and then they were leading the series 3-2. Then the sixth game was in Oklahoma City, so the Thunder was at home.

It was a huge win for the Thunder because they won the Western Conference Playoff Finals. Because they won, they will be going up against either The Boston Celtics or the Miami Heat. The Spurs have some nice players like Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, but the Thunder has even better players like Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Kevin Durant was one of the key players for the Thunder’s victory over the Spurs. Russell Westbrook was one of the key players also; he kept on giving Kevin Durant the ball and he kept on knocking down those shots that everyone thinks are unbelievable. The Thunder is an amazing team and because they beat the Spurs, I think they are going all the way and that they are going to win the Playoffs. If they win the Playoffs they will be the best NBA team in the USA. The real question is will they be able to beat Miami in the finals?
