Believe it America, the San Antonio Spurs are indeed that damn good. On Monday night they completed a sweep of the Memphis Grizzlies 93 – 86 to head to their fifth NBA Finals. Between Tony Parker & Tim Duncan, the Spurs look to have once more found that cliched “championship form” and will probably give the Miami Heat fits in the Finals beginning June 6th.

As far as the Memphis Grizzlies are concerned, their best season in franchise history ened with a sudden thud to the same team that they slowly began their ascension over back in 2011. And after getting shellshocked in their Game 3 overtime loss, the young upstarts couldn’t handle the pressure of at least giving the Beale Street faithful at least one win in the series. That frustration of not being able to at least punch the Spurs in the mouth like they did in the early parts of Game 3 teetered over later in Game 4 where head coach (and the NBA’s best dressed coach) Lionel Hollins got into it with reserve guard Jerryd Bayless.

Bayless had messed up on a defensive assignment and Hollins yanked him, but not before pushing him and the two getting into a heated discussion on the bench. Outside of Tony Allen’s “I got murdered” flop in Game 2, this might have been the only other “highlight” of the series for Memphis right or wrong.
