MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Tony Parker scored 37 points in his best game this postseason, and the San Antonio Spurs advanced to their first NBA Final since 2007 when they won their last championship by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 93-86 on Monday night.
The Spurs now have won six straight in these playoffs from when they finished off Golden State in the semifinals to sweeping the Grizzlies in the Western Conference final.
The Grizzlies went from being undefeated on their own court in their best postseason in franchise history to being swept by the very same franchise that needed four games to knock them out of their first playoff appearance back in 2004.
Parker had his best game this postseason as he hit 15 of 21 and all six at the free throw line earning the Spurs and Tim Duncan plenty of rest before Game 1 of the Finals on June 6.
