Finally! The Western Conference playoffs start back up tonight as the Oklahoma City Thunder face the Spurs in San Antonio tonight in a battle of teams that are clearly the West's best. It's a contrast in styles between the old guard Spurs, led by proven veteran champions Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili plus a fantastic supporting cast, and the young, super-talented Thunder, featuring Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
