The Golden State Warriors held on for as long as they could and it just was not enough.

As he has been prone to do throughout his entire career, Tony Parker shot down the Warriors’ dreams in flames with one deadly shot.

Parker’s backbreaking 3-pointer with 1:15 to play Thursday pushed the San Antonio Spurs into the Western Conference finals with a 94-82 victory.

The Spurs beat back  the Warriors in six games to set up a war for the conference title with the Memphis Grizzlies.

San Antonio went into the locker room with a seven-point lead at halftime that they held on to with a tight fist.

Golden State, however, battled back within three when Jarrett Jack hit two free throws with 2:20 to play.

Kawhi Leonard responded with a 3-pointer for the Spurs with 2:01 left and Golden State was unable to answer when both Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry missed a 3-point attempt.

The Spurs wore down the shot clock down and Parker ended it by hitting a 3-point shot that  demolished the Warriors hopes for a Game 7.

After the game, Curry and the Warriors thanked the crowd with a touching end-of-the-season ceremony.
