SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tony Parker scored 22 points, Danny Green made seven 3-pointers and added 21, and the San Antonio Spurs used a dominant third quarter to decimate the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-77 on Wednesday night, rolling to a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.

Tim Duncan added 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Manu Ginobili and Boris Diaw had 11 points apiece off the bench.

Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each had 15 points, but the third-quarter barrage made spectators of both — not that they accomplished much when they did play. The star duo combined to shoot 13 for 40, including 4 for 14 in the third quarter.

Game 3 is Sunday at Oklahoma City.
