SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tony Parker sank a 21-foot jumper as time expired and the San Antonio Spurs won a thrilling rematch of the Western Conference finals, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 86-84 on Thursday night.

Parker scored the last of his 14 points while Serge Ibaka — the NBA’s leading shot-blocker last season — ran at him full steam. The All-Star guard calmly swished a long jumper from the left wing before screaming in excitement while his teammates mobbed him in front of the Thunder bench.

Kevin Durant led all scorers with 23 points, but stood stunned under the basket for several seconds before walking off the court.

The defending West champions are starting anew this season without James Harden, who was dealt to Houston in a stunning trade last weekend.
