The Oklahoma City Thunder basketballers have posted a crucial road win in the NBA's Western Conference finals, beating the San Antonio Spurs 108-103 in the pivotal fifth game.

The Thunder led every quarter in San Antonio and now lead the seven-game series 3-2.

It's the Spurs' third loss in a row, the first time this season that's happened - they were on a 20-game winning streak.

Game six is in Oklahoma on Thursday - the series winner faces the victor of the Eastern series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics for the title. That series is tied at 2-2.
