Thunder-Spurs series summed up in hilarious Rocky IV GIF

The 2014 Western Conference finals matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs has been completely one-sided. The Spurs won the first two games by a combined 52 points at the AT&T Center, including a 112-77 victory on Wednesday night

Nothing like a good Rocky IV GIF to further prove just how dominant the Spurs have been.

With San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich playing Ivan Drago and NBA Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant playing Apollo Creed, we have ourselves one of the more memorable NBA GIF’s you’ll ever see on the internet.

We even have cameos from Thunder head coach Scott Brooks as Rocky Balboa, point guard Russell Westbrook as Apollo’s wife (seriously) and rapper Lil B sitting ringside as he looks on in approval at the beating taking place in the squared circle.

Game 3 of the series will take place this Sunday, May 25 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena at 8:30 p.m. ET.

If the Thunder can’t regroup and close the gap with San Antonio, could we see even more Rocky GIF’s on the way?

In the 2012 Western Conference finals, Oklahoma City trailed 2-0 to San Antonio, only to close out the series with four-straight victories.

Never say never, right?
