Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and the San Antonio Spurs are back in the Western Conference finals for the second straight season with the same style that has carried them to four NBA titles.
After wearing down the younger Golden State Warriors in a grueling six-game series, the Spurs look as spry as ever. And they already know what to expect when they open the conference finals at home against Memphis on Sunday.
Duncan had 19 points and six rebounds, Kawhi Leonard added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and the Spurs held off a furious final rally to eliminate the Warriors with a 94-82 victory Thursday night in Oakland, Calif.
