Spurs star Tony Parker.

The San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Sunday evening at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in the third game of the Western Conference Finals.

The Spurs can be backed at 1.86 in the point spread [+2.5], while the Thunder [-2.5] are priced at 1.95.

The visitors arrive as the top seed in the Conference and with all the momentum in the world after routing the Thunder in the first two games at the AT & T Center in San Antonio earlier in the week. However the Spurs will not have forgotten that a similar scenario faced them two years ago and Oklahoma City ran off four games in a row to move on to play the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were each held to 15 points in their last outing and the Thunder’s two stars must step up if Oklahoma City are to avoid a sweep.

Miami took a further step to a third consecutive crown on Saturday with a 99-87 triumph over the Indiana Pacers at the American Airlines Arena. LeBron James led the way for the Heat with 26 points and Dwyane Wade dropped in a further 23 in support as Chris Bosh struggled once again scoring nine points for a third consecutive game. Fortunately for the big man Ray Allen came off the bench to hit a perfect 4-of-4 from long range as part of a 16-point effort and the former Boston Celtics star was also aided by a strong outing from Norris Cole. Rashard Lewis turned in one of the more unique stat lines in recent memory with no points in 17 minutes, but a +21 plus/minus on the night.
