Tony Parker Comes Up Big in Game 4 to Help San Antonio Spurs Reach 2013 NBA Finals

(Spruce Derden/USA Today Sports)

Last season, the San Antonio Spurs fell just short of reaching the 2013 NBA Finals after falling to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals. Now, it looks like the Spurs are ready to do whatever it takes to make sure they win the NBA Finals after sweeping the Memphis Grizzlies following a big 93-86 win in Game 4 on Monday–mainly because of a strong performance by Tony Parker.

It’s no secret how valuable Parker has been to this Spurs team throughout his career and the guard came up big when San Antonio needed it the most as he scored 37 points to go along with four rebounds and six assists. Parker may not always be known for being a big scorer, but he certainly comes through every once in a while when his team needs him and that’s exactly what happened in Game 4.

Throughout the regular season, nobody knew what to expect from the Spurs as they feared age would become a factor with how far this team would be able to go this year, but they’ve proven that’s been far from the case. For a team that has looked impressive all year and hasn’t let age get to them, there’s no reason why San Antonio can’t win the NBA Finals–whether it’s against the Miami Heat or the Indiana Pacers.

After dominating the Western Conference during the regular season, the Spurs have proven they are capable of beating any team and if Parker can play in the NBA Finals like he did in Game 4–there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be considered the favorites.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.

Watch Spurs HC Popovich Pull Fast One On Parker

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has become synonymous for his cold shoulder handling of the media, but he does have a wry sense of humor on occasion. This little clip is hilarious how he just messes with Tony Parker. I couldn't stop laughing.

Barkley Calls Leonard Best Player In The World

Kawhi Leonard is one of the best young players in the NBA today and there's no disputing that. Charles Barkley however, believes that Leonard is the best player in the entire world and there has never been a more ridiculous statement to come out of his mouth. If you take Leonard away from the Spurs, they would find a way to be competitive. Take LeBron James or Stephen Curry away from their teams, and they don't have a chance.
