tony parkerLast night in San Antonio, there was no doubt which team was the four-time NBA champion and which was the young upstarts. Despite a spirited comeback from down 22 points by the Thunder to make the game a little bit more interesting in the fourth quarter, the Spurs dominated game two of the Western Conference Finals.

For much of these last two seasons, ever since LeBron James took his talents to South Beach, NBA fans have wondered, “who can beat the Heat?” Watching last night’s game, the question we should now be asking is “can anyone beat the Spurs?” For 20 games, the answer has been no.

Tony Parker led the way with 34 points on lights out shooting. In game one it was slashing Argentinian Manu Ginobili, and, as in every game this postseason, Tim Duncan was solid and looks healthy. Just as importantly, different role players have taken turns scoring on different nights. One game it will be Gary Neal, another it will be Kawhi Leonard or maybe Matt Bonner. It’s a well-oiled machine out there on the court that hasn’t lost a game since April 11.

James Harden played another fantastic performance, proving the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year’s game is maturing nicely. Harden, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined scored 88 of OKC’s 111, which means the Thunder aren’t getting much help from their role players. Someone outside the core three of the Thunder has to step up and score when the series goes to Oklahoma in order to give the team a chance.

What do you guys think? Will anyone else on Oklahoma step up? Do they stand a chance to win this series? If the Thunder fail can either the Heat or Celtics defeat a Spurs team that looks unbeatable?

Yes. The OKC Thunder (my favorite team) killed them last night to advance to the NBA final for the first time since they were the Seattle Supersonics*-1996. With superstars on the team like Durant ("Comeback Kid"), Westbrook, Harden, Ibaka, Sefolosha, Perkins, etc. they are unstoppable and will easily dominate the Western Conference for the next 10-15 yrs. Go Thunder! #ThunderUP
