It wasn't even close. In only four games, the San Antonio Spurs have eliminated the Memphis Grizzlies after winning 93-86 tonight, punching their ticket to the 2013 NBA Finals. Throughout the series, the Gregg Popovich led Spurs over-matched the Grizzlies at every facet of the game. Now, the team's older players will get some much needed rest as they await the winner of the Eastern Conference match-up between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat.
One positive takeaway for the Grizzlies is that, after this season's Western Conference Finals appearance, there's only one place to go and that's up. Memphis looks like a solid team and with their strong defense, they will be going deep into the playoffs for years to come.
