These have been some of the more exciting NBA Playoff series in some time, but now we’ve reached the professional version of the final four, and after the events on Thursday night, it’ll be the Oklahoma City Thunder taking on the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals for the right to move on to try and claim the ultimate prize.
Thursday evening, capping off what may have been one of the more scrutinized series of the entire playoffs, the Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Clippers on the road in the Staples Center, 104-98, and took the series four games to two.
However, to get back to the NBA Finals, where they were two years ago, they’ll have to get past the defending Western Conference champs, the San Antonio Spurs, who made quick work of the young Portland Trail Blazers in five games.
There’s a lot to watch for in this series.
Tim Duncan is going for his fifth NBA championship which would further add to his already impressive legacy as one of the best to ever play the game.
Then, we have this year’s league MVP, Kevin Durant, seeking out his first NBA championship, which would give him the perfect ending to one of the more incredible individual seasons in history.
Who do you think will move on to the Western Conference Finals? Let us know in the comments section below.
