The Spurs end last season with heartache, falling to the Miami Heat in 7 games. Apparently the Spurs learned from their mistakes, studied their opponents, and managed to obtain what most people called, revenge.
They came back this year & finished the regular season with the best record in the NBA. Coach Popovich wins Coach of the Year honor for the 3rd time. They fought hard in the 1st round & edged out the Dallas Mavericks in 7. They powered post the Portland Trailblazers & Oklahoma City Thunder. They came in as the underdogs, won Game 1, barely lost game 2, & then defeat the Heat convincingly, stealing 2 games in Miami. We have to admit, we definitely had faith in the Spurs but we didn’t anticipate the series to come to an end in game 5. They ran their offense like a well oiled machine.
Congratulations San Antonio Spurs on their 5th title, all since 1999, with Popovich & Tim Duncan in for all of them. Tim Duncan made NBA history with all time post season minutes, in 17 seasons. A special congratulations goes to the NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, who’s only 22 years old and who also makes history along with Tim Duncan as being one of the youngest NBA Finals MVP.
