With the 2012 NBA Western Conference Finals matchup all set for Sunday, at 8:30 PM ET in San Antonio, the Spurs will play host to the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder for Game 1 of the series.
The San Antonio Spurs, without a doubt, are currently the hottest team in the playoffs winning 18 straight games dating back to the end of the regular season. Led by Tony Parker’s MVP caliber year, San Antonio not only has managed to acquire the #1 seed during the regular season, the team has swept both the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers in the first two rounds of the postseason.
San Antonio was and continues to be the best three-point shooting team in the league, playoffs included. In addition, the Spurs have an extremely deep bench, probably the best. San Antonio can beat you in many different ways and are primed to make a big run as the playoffs approach the finish line.
It’s no secret that San Antonio’s Tony Parker has been playing with tremendous confidence in the playoffs. So much that the Spurs’ leading scorer [19.1 points and 7.1 assists] had decided to challenge OKC Thunder’s talented point guard, Russell Westbrook.
According to Yahoo! Sports, Westbrook “supposedly” has never faced a point guard with Parker’s skill set.
“It’s not going to be like Dallas or the Lakers for Westbrook,” said Parker… adding that their point guards are “not as aggressive” as the Spurs’ leading scorer.
The Western Conference Finals is guaranteed to have some fireworks. This is one NBA series that you won’t want to miss.
Tony Parker threw the first punch; let’s see what the young Westbrook does to counter.
