The game three odds at press time at Oddsmaker has the home team Oklahoma City Thunder the -3 point betting favorite.

San Antonio enters play with a 2-0 series lead in the Western conference finals. In game one the Spurs were backed by a ferocious fourth quarter run that saw the club outscore Oklahoma City 39-27 in the final period for a 101-98 victory. The Thunder was held to just 42.2% shooting in the loss while the Spurs shot nearly 46%. It was Manu Ginobili leading the San Antonio cause with 26 points on and aggressive 9 of 14 shooting from the floor as the lefty guard maneuvered his way through the Oklahoma City defense for solid looks around the bucket.

With Oklahoma City down 0-1 in the series they looked to even the score in game two on Tuesday night. But once again the Thunder was held to five percent below their playoff average from the field as San Antonio went up 2-0 following a 120-111 home win as a -4 ½ point betting favorite. Oklahoma City shot just 42% from the floor while the Spurs connected on an explosive 55.1% shooting in the win. Russell Westbrook suffered through a 10 of 24 night shooting the basketball for OKC. Derek Fisher corrected back to the norm with a 2 of 11 night shooting the basketball. It must have been a bad sign for OKC when Fisher had an outstanding shooting performance and still could not beat the Spurs in game one. It was unlikely for the inept guard to duplicate the effort from game one and gamblers who backed OKC in game two should be angry at themselves for missing that angle to play against the Thunder in game two. The Spurs have owned the Thunder. San Antonio has now won four straight against the OKC this season and is 9-1 straight up over their past ten meetings.
