Game 1's opening points set the tempo for the rest of the game as Kawhi Leonard threw down an impressive dunk.

Pop just said the Spurs had a great night and OKC just flat out had a bad night.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs cruise to a 124-92 over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals. San Antonio led by as many as 43 tonight, marking the first time in the Pop era the Spurs led a playoff game by 40 points or more, according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Game 1 goes to the Spurs, and it was in emphatic, convincing fashion, 124-92. They overwhelmed the Thunder from tipoff, getting everything they wanted on offense and suffocating to normally high octane Thunder offense. Aldridge and Leonard combined for 63 on 28-36 shooting. Westbrook and Durant had 30 on 11-34.

Stanton obliterates 460-foot homer

So we're starting the fourth quarter…STARTING, and the Spurs lead 105-66. LaMarcus Aldridge has 38 points, his most since February, while Kawhi Leonard has 25 and Danny Green has 18 on 5-of-6 shooting from deep. The Spurs are shooting 68.3 percent as a team, while OKC is at 39.4 percent.

Royce Young @royceyoung

Spurs lead 105-66 after three. Good news! The Thunder are finally beating Leonard and Aldridge 66-65.

Penguin PP ineffective again and we're through two at Verizon Center. Will those missed man-advantage chances cost the Pens in third?

Shots 28-10 Penguins through 2 periods but only 1-0 on the scoreboard. Pittsburgh may pay perhaps for letting Caps hang around...

Curt Casali's RBI single in the ninth inning gave the Rays a 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.


Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs obliterated the Thunder in the first half, 73-40. Here's the summary: LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard outscored OKC by five themselves. Durant is struggling, Westbrook is wild, the bench has been useless and the defense completely nonexistent. Other than that, pretty good half for the Thunder.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs go into halftime leading 73-40. No, this is not a misprint. According to ESPN Stats and Info, this is the first time a Gregg Popovich coached Spurs team had two players with 20 points in the first half of a playoff game. Kawhi Leonard put up 20 in the first half, which is a career high for a first half. LaMarcus Aldridge leads the Spurs with 25 points. Leonard and Aldridge's combined 45 points outpaces the entire Oklahoma City team. Amazing.

This is the first time a Popovich team has 2 players (Leonard & Aldridge) with 20 points in the 1st half of a regular OR playoff game.
