Thunder vs Spurs: OKC Comes Back From 18 Down to Win Game 6, Series [Game 6 Video Highlights]

The Thunder defeated the Spurs to win the Western Conference Finals, 4-2. The road was difficult though, as the Spurs came out looking as sharp as they did in Game 2 and built a huge lead after a quarter of play. Pushing the lead to 18 points on several occasions, it looked as if San Antonio had finally rediscovered its offensive fluidity and Tony Parker and the gang looked ready to fend off the Thunder to force Game 7.

The Thunder took this early deficit in stride though, and all but erased the Spurs lead in the 3rd quarter alone. With a combination of Kevin Durant's offense and outstanding team defense, the Thunder battled back to take a lead late in the 3rd. Heading into the 4th, the question was going to be whether the Spurs could continue to score at the same pace as OKC to have a chance to win in the end. To the Thunder's credit, once they took the 4th quarter lead, they never relinquished it. OKC held on in the end and are now bound for Durant & Company's first Finals appearance.
