Spurs Return to Western Conference Finals

The Spurs meet the Warriors in game one of the Conference finals on Sunday.

The Spurs took the win 114 to 75 Thursday night, sending them to the conference finals against the Golden State Warriors.

October 25 in Oakland: The Spurs spoiled opening night for the Warriors, as well as Kevin Durant's debut with his new team, rolling to a 129-100 rout at Oracle Arena. San Antonio only allowed 8.1 3-pointers made per game this season, a key defensive trait against a Warriors team that went 8-13 this season when making fewer than 10 3-pointers in a game. But most of us conveniently forgot that the Spurs are not Leonard's team. With plenty of fresh legs, they relentlessly chased Houston's shooters and led by as many as 40 points in the fourth quarter. In two days the Spurs will be hosted by the Warriors in the first game of the series. They rumbled to an NBA-high 67 wins this season, including a big late March road victory in San Antonio.

Spurs' superstar and MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard was out for the game with an ankle injury, giving the Rockets an additional upside in addition to having home court advantage. The Grizzlies ended their regular season with a record of 43-39, as the seventh place team of the Western Conference.

San Antonio rookie point guard DeJounte Murray gave them 11 points, 10 rebounds and five assists off the bench (good for a plus-33 mark).

Mills has been outstanding, with 14 points and seven assists in their series clincher against the Rockets on Thursday and 20 points in game five.

While Houston struggled greatly, the Spurs hummed like a well-oiled machine, churning through Game 6 with the might of a multi-titled franchise that had been to the National Basketball Association playoffs for 20 straight years. If it's the same teams as a year ago, you KNOW I'm gonna have fun with that one. Following the clincher in Houston, as celebrations echoed throughout the Alamo City, the focus shifted to the Warriors for Spurs sharpshooter Danny Green.

"I try to keep things as simple as possible", he said. "It was a long series, an exhausting series and now we play at noon, but we're here", Manu Ginobili said. The Warriors showed their depth and why they got Kevin Durant, as Curry and Thompson had some off nights shooting the ball, but Durant's length and pure athletic ability propelled them to beat the Jazz by double digits.
