The San Antonio Spurs played a perfect game in the opening encounter of their Western Conference semi-final playoff series with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The five-time champions destroyed the Thunder by 32-points at the AT&T Center after racing into an early lead and scoring an NBA playoff record 43 in the opening quarter.
LaMarcus Aldridge had arguably his best night in the grey of San Antonio as he shot 78.3 percent from the field on his 23 attempts to finish with a game-high 38 points.

Kawhi Leonard also shot 76.9 percent for his 25 points while Danny Green scored 18, averaging 85.7 percent shooting.
However, Argentinian veteran Manu Ginobili is worried about game two tonight as he believes it could be tough for the team to play to the same level they produced on Saturday.
"After a game like that, you are worried," Ginobili said, via Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News. "The tendency is to be satisfied, so you get to worry about the next one."
Let's face it, not every game will go to plan. However, the Spurs have the players capable of ensuring they take a 2-0 lead to Oklahoma City.
The Thunder were lacklustre in game one and will need a drastically improved performance if they are to earn anything from the second encounter.
The pressure isn't on the Spurs, though, it is on OKC's star duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The pair were out of sorts throughout the evening as the Spurs' lockdown defence caused a number of issues. They will have to overcome those problems to avoid another embarrassing loss.
