The San Antonio Spurs have done what very few teams have done before. The Spurs completed the sweep of the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference Finals to advance to the NBA Finals for the fifth time in 14 seasons. The Spurs last visit to the finals was in 2007 when they swept the Cleveland Cavaliers for their fourth title.
“Honestly, it feels like it’s been forever since we’ve been to this point,” PF Tim Duncan said Monday night after the Spurs victory. “We’ve been on the verge of kind of getting here. We still feel like we were in contention, but we can’t get over that hump. To get over that hump and get back in the Finals, it’s an amazing feeling, honestly.”
Point Guard Tony Parker scored a game high 37 points on 15-21 shooting and seemed most happy about the newest Spur to join the squad, Tracy McGrady and his quest to go to the NBA Finals.
“Tracy McGrady is going to the NBA Finals,” Parker said as he passed the former All-Star after the game.
