Spurs Win 20th Straight, Take 2-0 Western Conference Finals Lead

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO) -- San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker scored 34 points and dished out eight assists, as the Spurs won Game 2 of the Western Conference finals 120-111 over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The win is the Spurs 20th in a row and sends them to Oklahoma City with a 2-0 series lead.

"He did a great job of finding other people...scoring himself at the rim... making jumpers...He played an all-around game," Spurs head coach Greg Popovich said of Parker. 

The Thunder were able to cut a 22 point third quarter deficit to 5, but Thunder guard Russell Westbrook knows close means nothing.

"We're not here to try and make it a close game or try to make it a good fight...we're trying to win," Westbrook said. "We lost tonight. They did their job of taking care of home court. Now we get a chance to go back home."

Game 3 is Thursday in Oklahoma City. Game time is 9 PM ET.
