The return of Serge Ibaka gave a listless Oklahoma City Thunder team new life, as they defeated the San Antonio Spurs 106-97 in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

Sam Amick of USA Today tweeted a comment by Ibaka regarding his return:

Now, rather than finding themselves in a 3-0 hole, the Spurs' lead in the series has been cut to just one game.

One question must be asked: Can the Thunder keep it up?

Oklahoma City now has a great deal of momentum on its side—along with another home contest in Game 4—but the well-rounded and experienced Spurs won't make things easy.

In 2012, the Thunder were in this same predicament. The team found itself down two games to San Antonio but was able to climb back and move on to the finals.

Can they do it again?

A tweet from theScore notates what's in the back of everyone's minds:

This was already a highly anticipated series; however, with Ibaka now back in the fold, things have become very interesting.

ESPN's Skip Bayless tweeted a big question for San Antonio:

Let's take a look at the series' remaining schedule to ensure not a moment of the ensuing action is missed, followed by updated championship odds for both teams following Game 3.

 

Spurs vs. Thunder Schedule

With the Thunder now seemingly back on track, the team will have one more home contest before heading back to San Antonio for Game 5.

Oklahoma City will need to continue its momentum if it is to even the series here. After all, the Spurs are a fantastic road team, boasting a 30-11 away record this season.

Should the series draw even, we will be in for a wild ride, as the final three games of this series move from San Antonio, back to Oklahoma City and then finish in San Antonio for Game 7.

Can league MVP Kevin Durant and Co. pull off the improbable comeback, or will the experienced Tim Duncan-led Spurs rise to the occasion and thwart the Thunder's finals bid?

We'll find out soon enough. Stay tuned.

Updated Championship Odds

The Spurs still hold the best odds to come away with a championship victory; however, the Thunder's odds greatly improved following Ibaka's return and a Game 3 victory.

These odds will shift in a big way once more after a crucial Game 4 of this series.

Can Oklahoma City draw closer, or will San Antonio pull away once more?
