NBA Playoffs 2013: Spurs vs. Warriors Western Conference Finals Preview
It was more difficult than they thought it would be, but the San Antonio Spurs knocked out the Golden State Warriors in six games and now move on to the Western Conference Finals for the eighth time in 15 years where they will face the Memphis Grizzlies. The fifth-seeded Grizzlies caught a break in the Conference Semifinals and eliminated a wounded Oklahoma City Thunder team in five games, so they’re riding high.
With the Thunder out early because of an injury to Russell Westbrook, this is a now-or-never situation for San Antonio, but Memphis seems to be the stronger team at this point and by the looks of it, the Grizzlies have the best shot at beating the Miami Heat in the 2013 NBA Finals. However, if the Spurs play fundamentally sound basketball like they did in Games 5 and 6 against Golden State, they could easily advance to the Finals for one last hurrah with the core of Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.
But with twin towers in Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol who have dominated both ends of the floor and stifling defensive guards in Tony Allen and Mike Conley who have been pleasantly surprising on the offensive end, the Grizzlies will definitely have something to say about that in the Western Conference Finals.
