with two outs and stole second.

SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs are rolling toward a return to the NBA Finals, and Oklahoma City looks powerless to slow them down without Serge Ibaka. Gareon Conley Raiders Jersey . Tony Parker scored 22 points, Danny Green made seven 3-pointers and added 21, and the Spurs used a dominant third quarter to decimate the Thunder 112-77 on Wednesday night and take 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 in San Antonios second straight rout. "We just did our job. We won our first two games at home and Im sure theyre going to go back and say we have to do our job and win two games at home," Parker said, recalling that the Spurs blew a 2-0 lead against the Thunder in the 2012 West finals. Oklahoma Citys 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, and the Spurs are trying to remind themselves it probably wont remain this easy. "Manu said its a dangerous win but I believe in our group," Green said. "I believe that we have the maturity, the character and the experience to stay focused and not take this win to head." Playing without the injured Ibaka and given two days to adjust to dropping Game 1 by 17 points, the Thunder performed worse. San Antonio closed the first half on a 25-8 run, then Parker and Green each had eight points in the third quarter as San Antonio outscored Oklahoma City 33-18. "If they had won this game by one point, wed still be down 0-2," Durant said. "(We) lost by a lot two games in a row. Its hard for you to stay together, but we have a group of guys that are not front-runners and well figure it out." It was a shocking turn for the Thunder, who started well. "It definitely doesnt feel good and it shouldnt," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "I hope our locker doesnt feel good. You shouldnt feel good. We got our butts kicked. But we have a good opportunity to come back and win Game 3." Oklahoma City opened more aggressive on both ends, especially defensively. The physicality disrupted the Spurs early and frustrated them emotionally. Duncan was issued a technical with about 5 minutes left in the first quarter after complaining when Ed Malloy ruled he threw a hip into Durant. It turned out the Spurs veteran had little to worry about, as the Thunder finished just 4 for 9 on free throws. The Thunder scored five straight to open the game, with Westbrooks 3 capping the early run and producing what would become their largest lead of the series at 5-0. Oklahoma City did not go under on pick-and-rolls as they did in Game 1, which allowed Parker more scoring opportunities. He took four shots in the opening five minutes. His first two baskets came on driving layups, including running right down the middle of the lane with Thabo Sefolosha trailing by a couple of steps. San Antonio continued to struggle with its shot, but righted itself with offensive rebounding. Green hit consecutive 3s to extend the Spurs advantage to 55-44 with a minute left in the first half. San Antonio later rebounded a missed layup by Ginobili and Parkers errant 3-pointer, leading to a high-arcing 3 by Ginobili for a 58-44 lead. Ginobili then drew a charge on Westbrooks 3 on the ensuing possession. Durant and Westbrook opened the game 9 for 26 in the first half. Durant had one field goal in the final 16 minutes of the first half. Durant made his first two field goals of the second half, but did not have another for the rest of the half. Oklahoma City went scoreless for two minutes midway through the third quarter as San Antonio built its lead to 76-50 on a pair of free throws by Duncan with 6:20 remaining. NOTES: Parker is one assist shy of becoming the 10th player with 1,000 career post-season assists. The list includes Parkers three favourite childhood idols: Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. . Oklahoma Citys Perry Jones, who only played the final 2 minutes of Game 1, started the second quarter. He finished with two points in 24 minutes. . Minnesota Timberwolves C Ronny Turiaf, who plays on the French national team with Parker and Diaw, was in attendance, as was musician Steve Miller.

Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.SHANGHAI - As far as caddies are concerned, this might as well be the Adam Scott sweepstakes.Scott is in the market for a new caddie after Steve Williams headed off into semi-retirement. There figured to be a long line of candidates to work for the former Masters champion, who is No. 2 in the world and regarded as one of the most congenial players in golf.He just never expected so many — and from so many walks of life.There were some shockers, like random ones — some guy in Florida who lives at home and looks after his mom, Scott said Tuesday in downtown Shanghai after taking part in a promotion to celebrate the 10th edition of the HSBC Champions. I guess he figured it would be a good job.For a caddie, there are not many better jobs in golf.Scott has earned about $18 million in PGA Tour earnings alone over the last five years, and he has become a regular contender in the majors. He had Tony Navarro, who previously worked for Greg Norman, and then picked up Williams after his split with Tiger Woods.The way I see it, you cannot replace a Steve Williams, Scott said. I cannot go out and look for the next Steve Williams. I dont think thats possible. I need to go out and find what is going to work for me at this stage in my career, to complement all the things I am doing now, just like I did when I hired Steve. Marshawn Lynch Youth Jersey. cott has time to decide. He has two events in Australia after the HSBC Champions, and he doesnt plan to start his 2015 season until the Honda Classic. He used Swiss neighbour Eddie Gardino in Japan; Gardino caddied for Angel Cabrera in his 2007 U.S. Open win at Oakmont. Scott is using David Clark, who currently works for Cameron Tringale, at the HSBC Champions.I need to see a few personalities, see what fits best with me, Scott said. I had such a strong one (personality) for so long.As for other possibilities? Speculation has been running rampant among the caddies. Scott said he has received more than 100 inquiries, and that he has responded to most of them — except for the guy in Florida.Its good to know people would want to work with me, Scott said. If the phone didnt get a message, Id be a little worried what they all think of me. Like us golfers, the caddies are very aspirational as well. The way Ive talked about what I want to achieve, some of the guys believe they can help me to do that and want to do the same.
