Oklahoma City, OK ( - The Western Conference finals is headed back to San Antonio tied at two games apiece after the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled to another convincing home win on Tuesday. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant were again at their best as the Thunder ran past the Spurs, 105-92, in Game 4 to inject a little deja vu into this suddenly tight series. When these teams met two years ago in the West finals, the Spurs won the first two games at home, only to lose the next four to the younger, hungrier upstarts. The script has remained the same over the first four games this time around, in part because of Serge Ibaka's return, but mostly because Westbrook and Durant have been nearly unstoppable. Westbrook finished with 40 points, 10 assists, five steals and five rebounds, while Durant poured in 31 points on just 22 shots. The Thunder shot 50.8 percent from the field over the first three quarters to build a substantial lead, one aided by a staggering 21-0 advantage in fastbreak points Tony Parker scored 14 points, while the other two-thirds of San Antonio's Big 3 -- Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili -- totaled 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting. Boris Diaw added 14 with 10 rebounds off the bench for the Spurs, who host Game 5 on Thursday.
