Tony Parker netted 37 points, his highest-scoring game of the season, and the San Antonio Spurs defeated Memphis 93-86 on Monday to complete a playoff sweep and advance to the NBA Finals.
The Spurs finished a 4-0 rout of the Grizzlies in the best-of-seven Western Conference final and reached the NBA finals for the first time since 2007, when they swept LeBron James-led Cleveland for their fourth title in nine seasons.
"It seems like forever since we have been there," said Spurs star big man Tim Duncan. "We have been driven and we're glad to get back there."
