2012 NBA Playoffs: Thunder Beat Spurs, 107-99, Advance to NBA Finals

The Oklahoma City Thunder have advanced to the NBA Finals! Down 0-2 to the San Antonio Spurs, it seemed like their season would end here.

But they didn’t give up.

OKC kept fighting and fighting. In Game 3, they killed the Spurs, 102-82. The next two games ended in close bouts, but they held on to win to take a commanding 3-2 series lead.

San Antonio came into the game firing off all cylinders. They could not be stopped and jumped to a 63-48 lead at halftime, with Tony Parker off to a hot start. He would finish with 29 points and 12 rebounds.

However, the third quarter was where OKC started to take control. OKC would go on a 32-18 advantage in the third, which helped stay in the game and take over the fourth.
