Oklahoma City vs. San Antonio: Western Conference Finals Breakdown

And then there were two.

The San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder will kick off the Western Conference Finals on Sunday, beginning one of the most anticipated series thus far in the NBA playoffs.

The Spurs have seemingly been on a roll, sweeping the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers on their way to an 18-game win streak.

With a win in Game 1, the Spurs would tie the 2001 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest postseason win streak.

Meanwhile, the Thunder have been riding the revenge train.  They avenged their loss last year in the Western Conference Finals by sweeping the Dallas Mavericks in the first round.  Kevin Durant and company then dispatched the Lakers, who eliminated the Thunder in the first round of the 2010 playoffs.

Now the table is set.

It's the top-seeded Spurs vs. the second-seeded Thunder in a series that seemed inevitable since the All-Star Break.

Will it be a formal "changing of the guard," or will the Spurs continue their quest for a fifth NBA Championship?

Let's break it down, position by position.
