All those factors altogether is not going to make it an easy game for us," said Spurs forward Tim Duncan. "But we feel we play the right way." The Spurs moved within a game of a repeat appearance against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals thanks to a 117-89 blowout in Thursdays Game 5. The Heat prevailed last year, but San Antonio owns four titles since Duncan and head coach Gregg Popovich united in Alamo City. For the Thunder, this is the third time this postseason theyll face an elimination game. Since theyre playing on Saturday, their success thus far has been unquestioned. "We just have to worry about the next game," Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant said. "Were guaranteed 48 more minutes. Its been an up-and-down series but we have to find a way to come with it in Game 6." They didnt "come with it" in Game 5. The Spurs made 13 3-pointers and had six players score in double figures in Game 5s drubbing.

After holding the Spurs to under 40 percent shooting in Games 3 and 4, the Thunder watched helplessly as San Antonio made 51.3 percent of its shots. "We didnt have the defensive disposition that weve had the last two games," Thunder head coach Scott Brooks said. "We have to regroup and come back better in a few days." Durant and Russell Westbrook finished with 25 and 21 points, respectively, for Oklahoma City, a far cry from the duos superb 71-point dual effort in Tuesdays victory. Serge Ibaka was limited to six points and just two rebounds in the loss. The Spurs tweaked their starting lineup for Game 6, inserting sharpshooter Matt Bonner in place of Tiago Splitter, a traditional center. Bonner was not a factor, but the rest of the Spurs usual reserves were instrumental in the strong start. "It worked for a while," Popovich said. "Im not too interested in talking to you about specifics about why things worked or didnt work. Id rather have other people figure that out." Three-pointers from Patty Mills and Green tied the game at 32-32 heading into the second, and Ginobili led the way in a one-sided second quarter with nine points on 4-of-4 shooting. Ginobilis layup and 3-pointer had the hosts ahead by as many as 13 late in the half before Westbrook beat the buzzer with a deep make to pull Oklahoma City within 65-55. The Spurs owned a 16-2 advantage in the paint in the second quarter, then capped the third on a 12-4 run to essentially put the game away.
