The Spurs have one of the strongest all-around teams in the NBA, and they are led by some veteran players in Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili. Many people feel that this group is too old to seriously contend, but they seem to always have a strong record at the end of every season. The Spurs real strength is the fact that they are 10-2 on the road, but their biggest road test of the season will be on Monday the 17th when they take on Oklahoma City.
The Thunder on the other hand are considered to be one of the favorites in the Western Conference, which is a conference that has some serious contenders this year. With their core group of players, great coach, and the fact that they probably have one of the best players in the NBA in Kevin Durant on their team, you can see why they are favorites. Oklahoma City has a great home court advantage as well, since their home fans really get loud and make things tough on opposing teams.

What a big early season game this one is. The Spurs and Thunder are very likely to end up meeting during the postseason when all is said and done, and that'd be a great seven game series to see. I think that this one could be tight back and forth all night, but I do think that home field advantage is going to factor in at the end of the game. The Thunder have some of the best home fans in the NBA, and in this big of a game they are going to make a whole lot of noise. The Thunder also have one of the best closers out there right now in Kevin Durant, and I think he'll help them get the win by three.
Prediction: Oklahoma City Thunder- 99 San Antonio Spurs- 96
Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder
