SAN ANTONIO (WOAI) The San Antonio Spurs will play the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals.
The Thunder advanced to the finals after eliminating the Los Angeles Clippers last night.
Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals will be Monday night in San Antonio. Tipoff is scheduled at 8 p.m.
Game 2 will be in San Antonio on Wednesday, with Games 3 and 4 in Oklahoma City on Sunday and Tuesday.
If needed, Game 5 would be back in San Antonio on Thursday, May 29th, with a possible Game 6 in Oklahoma City on May 31st and Game 7 in San Antonio on June 2nd.
Meanwhile, point guard Tony Parker has a Grade 1 strain of his left hamstring and is listed as day-to-day.
Parker had an MRI exam on Thursday, one day after leaving Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Portland with the injury. A Grade 1 strain is considered the least severe of the three grades, so the Spurs appear to have avoided what would have been a devastating injury to their best player.
Parker had a Grade 2 strain in the NBA Finals last season, but was able to play through the injury.
