The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs 107-99 in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals to advance to the NBA Finals.

Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 34 points, 14 rebounds and five assists and played the entire game.

The Thunder lost the first two games of this series on the road before winning the final four games. They become just the 15th team in NBA history to come back from 0-2 to win a series.

Russell Westbrook poured in a nice night as well scoring 25 points to go with five assists and eight rebounds.

James Harden scored just eight points in the first three quarters but finished with 16 points including two huge threes in the fourth quarter.

The Thunder weathered a furious start to the game by the Spurs and Tony Parker in particular. Parker scored 17 points in the first quarter and finished with 29 and 12 assists.

Tim Duncan had a throwback game for him with 25 points and 14 rebounds.

The Thunder trailed by 18 points in the first quarter and for most of the first half. Durant made a very difficult 3-pointer at the end of the first half to cut the halftime deficit to 63-48.

The Thunder outscored the Spurs 32-18 in the third quarter and had all of the momentum headed into the fourth.

This was once again the passing of the guard. The Thunder will be the first team not named the Mavericks, Lakers or Spurs to represent the West in the NBA Finals since 1998.

Oklahoam City will await the winner of Boston and Miami in the East. The Celtics lead that series 3-2 with Game 6 in Boston tipping tomorrow night.
