Well, there are a few exceptions, apparently.

Still reeling from their tragic collapse down the stretch in Game 6 of last year’s NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs are hell-bent on getting back and righting their wrongs.

On Wednesday night, Tim Duncan and company will look to take a two-game lead over Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With their slight lead in the Western Conference Finals and their 5:4 odds of winning the NBA championship, the Spurs are league favorites in the sportsbook. The veteran club’s display of poise in Game 1 -- coupled with Miami’s unexpected loss to Indiana in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals -- have fans and critics reconsidering the San Antonio team whose window many thought had closed for good this time.

Trailing in the series, OKC has 13:2 odds on the NBA Futures, not bad for a perennial contender with the league’s MVP on the roster. Can Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook find a way to keep the Thunder in the series and return to the Finals? Let’s not forget that it was Oklahoma City who fell to Miami at the last hurdle in 2012 before San Antonio did the same in 2013.
