San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker put on a show to net 37 points on Monday to close out the Memphis Grizzlies 93-86.

Parker got off to a quick start generating nine points in the first quarter to help the Spurs take an early 10 point lead.

Tim Duncan had a strong night for the Spurs as well. His 15 points, eight boards and four rejections played a big part in punching their ticket to their first NBA Finals appearance since 2007.

Throughout the series, Memphis played the Spurs tough but simply did not get the breaks.

Tony Parker denies he was turned away from Memphis restaurant

Was Tony Parker denied access to a Memphis restaurant because he didn’t have a reservation? Kelly English, a famous chef who owns an eatery called Restaurant Iris, created that impression when he sent out the following tweets on Friday night.

WAGs Wednesday: Tim Duncan’s (Soon To Be Ex) Wife, Amy Duncan

  The Spurs have made it to the NBA Finals for the 5th time during the Tim Duncan era.  While some may argue Tony Parker has been carrying San Antonio all post-season, we’ve seen plenty of the “vintage” Tim Duncan helping the Spurs reach the Finals.  Being crowned the best team in the West is usually a time for celebration, but unfortunately for Tim Duncan, he’s allegedly...

Jalen Rose Declares Tony Parker is Best Player in the Entire NBA Behind LeBron and Kevin Durant

On Monday night,  Tony Parker’s surgical 37 point effort in Memphis led the Spurs to a 93-86 road win and 4 game sweep of the Grizzlies. After the game, much of the chatter was around how Tim Duncan and he’s still competing at such a high level and how he’s probably the best Power Forward in the history of the NBA – not much to argue with there. Jalen Rose, however, took...

Spurs back in NBA Finals after sweep of Grizzlies

It may seem as if the San Antonio Spurs are playing for an NBA title every year. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker know only too well how very long it's been since their last chance. Now they're back in the Finals with their first chance at a championship since 2007, a really long time for a Spurs team that knows a thing or two - or three - about hoisting trophies. ''Honestly...

Spurs magnifique in sweep to Finals

The last time the San Antonio Spurs were in the NBA Finals, Tony Parker was not quite a star and Tim Duncan was not quite over the hill (I think). Parker dominated that four-game sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers, led by a precocious LeBron James, by averaging 24.5 points per game and shooting 56.8 percent. It was Parker's moment and emergence as one of the best point guards in...

Don’t Bet Against the Spurs

When they won their fourth championship in nine years back in 2007 they were already being called an “old” team. Well, once again they’ve somehow resisted the concept of aging on their way to their first NBA Finals in six years. If this series taught us anything it’s that San Antonio continues to reinvent itself; finding ways to win and finding ways to adapt. Make no mistake...

Should Duncan go out on top?

During the NBA Finals, Rey Moralde of The No Look Pass will be contributing to Project Spurs during the San Antonio Spurs' chase for title number five.   We have seen this before in San Antonio. David Robinson did this in 2003. But would Spurs fans be surprised if Tim Duncan did the same as Robinson if the Spurs win title No. 5?   I'm talking about going...

Tim Duncan focused on winning his 5th NBA title

Tim Duncan is so close to his first NBA championship in six long years that the Spurs star isn't worried about the little issue of being rusty once the finals actually start. ''My sole focus is trying to get this done, trying to get another championship,'' Duncan said. ''I don't care records; I don't care age. I don't care any of that stuff...

Top 10 takeaways from the Spurs' sweep of the Grizzlies

Sleep, sweet Zebo, Sleep 10) In retrospect, the Grizzlies' choice of playing "Don't Stop Believing" while they were being swept seems a little insulting9) This is the 5th time the Spurs have reached the Finals, though you will be forgiven if you thought it was every other goddamn year since the early 90's8) Perhaps trading Rudy Gay for the utterly useless Tayshaun...

Tweet The Memphis Grizzlies had the San Antonio Spurs on their heels for the majority of game three of the Western Conference Finals.

Win from finals, Spurs want to finish Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Go ahead and call the San Antonio Spurs old. They're also experienced enough to know what to do only a win away from their first NBA Finals berth since 2007.
