The San Antonio Spurs' bench has led the NBA in three-point field goals made and assists this season. Their high-powered offensive attack is headed by a trio of players starting with Manu Ginobili, Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli.

The San Antonio Spurs have a solid core group of players who have seen numerous playoff games and NBA Finals.

Gregg Popovich should be the 2014 NBA coach of the year for the brilliant job he has done with a group that most seem to count out until the playoffs every season.

After clinching home-court with their recent victory over the Phoenix Suns, the Spurs have made it apparent that they will not allow last season's result to happen again. They want Games 6 and 7 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio, and their 32-8 home record this season looks like a solid example of what may produce a parade on the Riverwalk this June.

The San Antonio Spurs' "Big Three" have seen over 450 career victories and three titles together. This is one of the greatest trios in NBA history, and they will not let this opportunity slip away easily, seeing that it could be the last time they get this chance together.
