Spurs Complete Sweep of Grizzlies

(Memphis, TN) -- Tony Parker had 37 points on 15-of-21 shooting as the Spurs secured a spot in the NBA Finals with a 93-86 win over the Grizzlies. Tim Duncan collected 15 points, eight rebounds and four blocks to help the Spurs complete a four-game sweep of the Western Conference finals. Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich says things could've gone differently in this series if a few plays didn't go their way.

The Spurs are appearing in the Finals for the fifth time in franchise history. They have won each of their previous four trips. Quincy Pondexter had 22 points off the bench to pace the Grizzlies. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol combined for 27 points on 9-of-25 shooting.
