The 2016 San Antonio Spurs beat Oklahoma City by thirty-two points in game one of the series. However, they found it tough going in front of their home crowd in the second match. San Antonio has a distinct advantage with LaMarcus Aldridge in the post. The former Portland All-Star is a nightmare for Oklahoma City. Aldridge is back in the state where he played high school and College Basketball. As members of the San Antonio Spurs the Dallas, Texas native is going to be the driving force if the Spurs are to advance. Aging veterans Tim Duncan and Manu Ginóbili are getting up in age, and it’s showing in the postseason. 2016 Defensive Player of the year Kawhi Leonard and Aldridge will carry the torch through the rest of the playoffs. Point Guard Tony Parker is having trouble containing Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook and needs help. Head Coach Greg Popovich and the Spurs coaching staff will come up with a game plan for game three. The San Antonio Spurs are listed at 19/10 to win the 2016 Western Conference Championship.
The Oklahoma City Thunder got off to a fast start and held on for a 98-97 road victory in game two of the series. The Thunder looked entirely different from the team that was demolished in game-one. Head Coach Billy Donovan and the coaching staff must find a way to stop Aldridge in the post. 79-points is what he’s scored in the first two games of the series. Serge Ibaka doesn’t have the size and Steven Adams is struggling as well. The All-Star duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are doing more of trusting their teammates. If the Thunder are to advance both Westbrook and Durant must continually get their teammates involved. Oklahoma City did a better job of making Aldridge take shots out of his comfort zone. The Thunder fans are aware of his dominance and will make noise when he gets the basketball in the post. The key to an Oklahoma City victory is to play without fear in front of the home crowd. The Oklahoma City Thunder are listed at 16/1 to win the 2016 NBA Championship.
