Spurs Complete Sweep, Eliminate Clippers

 To say the San Antonio Spurs have been on a roll would be an understatement. Sunday night the Spurs completed their playoff series sweep of the Los Angeles Clippers with a 102-99 win. It was their 18th straight win, and improved their postseason record to 8-0, which is the third-best streak in NBA playoff history.

Tim Duncan continued to play like a “young” All-Star. The 36 year old future Hall of Famer, who admitted he’s feeling as good and healthy as he has in 5 years, dropped 21 points Sunday to go along with 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 blocks.

Chris Paul (23 Pts, 6 Reb, 11 Ast, 2 Stl) and the Clippers made Duncan and company earn Game 4, taking the game down to the final seconds. During their winning streak, San Antonio hasn’t experienced too many close games. However, don’t expect Tim to be upset about a tight contest. As a matter of fact, he views it as a positive.

“Great to have a close game like this,” said Duncan. “It’s good experience for us and good experience for our young guys.”

Duncan’s All-Star teammate Tony Parker was sensational as well, scoring 17 points and dishing out 5 assists. Two series sweeps won’t get Parker to ease up. His club has bigger goals in mind.

“It doesn’t mean anything,” explained Parker. “We haven’t accomplished anything. We have to keep playing and see who we get in the next round.”

They might learn who their Western Conference Finals opponent is as early as Monday night. The Oklahoma City Thunder host the Los Angeles Lakers tonight, leading L.A. 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.
