Spurs 94, Warriors 82: Survive and Advance

It was a classic Spurs win, with defense, execution and mental toughness carrying the day in a game where their offense threatened to abandon them yet again. They found just enough late, with Tony Parker — who had struggled all night to that point — hitting two huge 3-pointers and Kawhi Leonard adding a third in little more than two minutes after the Warriors cut what had been a 13-point lead to two. And so the Spurs — or the Popovich's, as Metta World Peace referred to them on Twitter while lauding the aforementioned qualities — advanced to the Western Conference finals for the eighth time in the Duncan/Pop era. Added bonus: An opportunity to avenge their ouster as the No. 1 seed by Memphis in the first round of the 2011 playoffs. The series begins Sunday in San Antonio.
