The Spurs cruise to a 124-92 over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals. San Antonio led by as many as 43 tonight, marking the first time in the Pop era the Spurs led a playoff game by 40 points or more, according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Game 1 goes to the Spurs, and it was in emphatic, convincing fashion, 124-92. They overwhelmed the Thunder from tipoff, getting everything they wanted on offense and suffocating to normally high octane Thunder offense. Aldridge and Leonard combined for 63 on 28-36 shooting. Westbrook and Durant had 30 on 11-34.

In the shot clock era, this is just the sixth time a team has led by 33 points or more at the half in a playoff game according to ESPN Stat and Information. The Spurs, coincidentally, were the last team to do it before tonight in 2006 against the Kings.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs obliterated the Thunder in the first half, 73-40. Here's the summary: LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard outscored OKC by five themselves. Durant is struggling, Westbrook is wild, the bench has been useless and the defense completely nonexistent. Other than that, pretty good half for the Thunder.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs go into halftime leading 73-40. No, this is not a misprint. According to ESPN Stats and Info, this is the first time a Gregg Popovich coached Spurs team had two players with 20 points in the first half of a playoff game. Kawhi Leonard put up 20 in the first half, which is a career high for a first half. LaMarcus Aldridge leads the Spurs with 25 points. Leonard and Aldridge's combined 45 points outpaces the entire Oklahoma City team. Amazing.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs end the first quarter leading 43-20. The best shooting percentage the Spurs have ever produced in a playoff game under Gregg Popovich was 87 percent in Game 3 of the 2014 finals against the Heat, according to ESPN Stats and Information. That was also the only other time the Spurs had hit 75 percent or better in the first quarter of a playoff game under Popovich until the club lit it up for 81.8 percent in the first quarter against the Thunder. Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge have a combined 27 points. Oklahoma City's starters have a combined 17 points.
