Perhaps the second most enjoyable moment of last year’s championship run came in the Conference Finals when the Spurs finally vanquished the relentless Oklahoma City Thunder. After splitting the first four games, it was Cory Joseph’s emphatic dunk on Serge Ibaka in their last loss that sparked the Spurs anew. Since then, the Thunder have appeared snake-bit, losing Durant and Westbrook this fall to injuries, and are looking at a climb just to make the playoffs. Both are back on the court now and Westbrook delivered the dunk of the season earlier this month against the hapless Pistons.
