OKC got a combined 88 points from Kevin Durant (31), James Harden (30) and Russell Westbrook (27). But its bench was little help, missing 27 of 34 shots.

Now the Spurs arrive in Oklahoma City six victories away from a fifth NBA title. The Thunder comes home trailing the series 2-0 and hoping to accomplish what it did two seasons ago against another championship-caliber team.

“We've been in this situation before with this group once before,” said Brooks, whose 2010 team came home down 2-0 to the Los Angeles Lakers only to tie the series and take the eventual champs to a Game 6. “We've had some history with this.”
