(The Spread) – Suddenly the odds to win the 2012 NBA Finals look much differently than they did a few short days ago.

With a two-games-to-none lead in the Western Conference Finals, the Spurs entered the weekend as 11/10 favorites to win the 2012 NBA Finals. (Actually, the Heat had odds of 11/10, too.) The Thunder, meanwhile, were 9/2 and the Celtics were considered the long shots at 40/1.

But entering play on Sunday, the Thunder are now 3/1 while the Spurs and Heat are 7/5. That’s because Oklahoma City has rallied in its best of seven series with San Antonio, which is now tied at two games apiece. The Thunder got a 36-point effort out of Kevin Durant in Game 4 on Saturday night to lift Oklahoma City to a 109-103 victory.

Suddenly the seemingly indestructible Spurs have cracks in their foundation. Entering Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, San Antonio had won 20 in a row and it appeared as if the Spurs would sweep the Thunder in the same fashion that they ran through the Jazz and Clippers in the first two rounds. But the Thunder have persevered and now look to go up on a Spurs team that is having issues defensively.

Meanwhile, the Celtics are poised to make things much more interesting in the Eastern Conference Finals. With a home win in Game 4 on Sunday night, Boston could go from 40/1 long shots on Friday down to 15/1 or 10/1 by Monday morning.
