Things are about to get real. The San Antonio Spurs are the most disciplined team in the NBA and they will be facing a younger, hungrier Oklahoma City Thunder squad in round 2 of the playoffs. Both teams are talented and made it through the first round with ease. See who can keep the ball bouncing and watch game one of this series online here!
The Spurs completely rolled through Justin Timberlake‘s Memphis Grizzlies, sweeping them out of the first round of playoffs in 4 games. The Thunder also quickly took care of business during their first series. It only took OKC 5 games to power past the Dallas Mavericks. So both teams are healthy and dominating heading into this match-up.
The Spurs have been getting the job done on the defensive side of the floor getting key stops against opposing teams. The Spurs will face a fast Thunder team who like to control the tempo. The Spurs will need to get hot from behind the arc to answer for all the fast-break points the Thunder will hang on them. If OKC wants to break down the aging Spurs’ starters, all they need to do is keep it real, and stay on the gas.
The nimble Thunder squad have a few stars who can get up and down the floor in a hurry. As long as the Thunder stick to what has been working for them in the playoffs and during regular season, they will have a good shot at squeaking past the veteran Spur team in 7. One thing is certain, this series is going to be exciting, must-see NBA action!
