OAKLAND --- Slow at the start of the
series and strong at the end, the San Anto-
nio Spurs beat the Golden State Warriors
94-82 on Thursday night to clinch a 4-2
victory and progress to the NBA Western
Also Thursday, the New York Knicks beat
the Indiana Pacers to stay alive in their East-
ern series, cutting the deficit to 3-2.
San Antonio wore out Golden State the
same way it has to so many other oppo-
Tim Duncan had 19 points and six
rebounds, Kawhi Leonard added 16 points
and 10 rebounds and the Spurs held off a
furious final rally.
"They ve got great character. They re
competitive. They know there s not a million
chances to do this sort of thing. They wanted
it," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of his
Tony Parker shook off a poor start to
score 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter
and Tiago Splitter added a career-playoff
high 14 points for San Antonio, which had
a 13-point lead in the third quarter cut to
two in the final minutes.
Golden State s Stephen Curry shot 10 of
25 from the floor to score 22 points on a
nagging left ankle injury, and Jarrett Jack
had 15 points as the Warriors finally ran out
of legs. Rookie forward Harrison Barnes also
suffered a head injury in the second quarter,
returned in the third and was sidelined in
the fourth with a headache.
The Spurs outshot Golden State 45 per-
cent to 39 percent and outrebounded them
46 to 40.
Second-seeded San Antonio will open
the conference finals at home against Mem-
phis on Sunday. The fifth-seeded Grizzlies
eliminated Oklahoma City in five games.
The Spurs haven t been to the NBA Finals
since 2007, when they won their fourth title
with a sweep of Cleveland.
The Spurs quieted a standing-room-only
crowd late in the third quarter and seemingly
seized control for good. Instead, the Warriors
Klay Thompson, who had 10 points on
4-for-12 shooting, made a 3-pointer early
in the fourth quarter that sliced San Anto-
nio s lead to three. Then Curry s pull-up
jumper brought the Warriors within 77-75
with 4:52 to play.
Parker was 1 for 13 before hitting a corner
3-pointer, and Leonard followed with two
free throws to put the Spurs up by seven.
Jack made a jumper and two free throws
to bring the Warriors back again. Then
Leonard hit another shot from beyond the
arc to put the Spurs ahead 85-79.
Curry and Thompson each had consec-
utive 3s rim out on the same possession
that could ve kept Golden State close. Instead
Parker hit another 3-pointer to put San
Antonio up 88-79 with 1:15 remaining, effec-
tively ending the contest.
Meanwhile, New York s Carmelo Anthony
scored 28 points to lead the Knicks to an
85-75 win over Indiana.
Reserves JR Smith and Chris Copeland
each had 13 points for the Knicks, who trail
3-2 and will need a victory today in Indiana
to force a seventh game back at Madison
Square Garden on Monday. They are trying
to become the ninth NBA team to overcome
a 3-1 deficit to win a series.
Anthony, who didn t make a basket in
the fourth quarter of either game in Indiana,
made a jumper midway through the fourth
quarter after Indiana closed within four
points. He followed with two free throws,
Raymond Felton made a layup, and the
Knicks were never in jeopardy again.
Paul George had 23 points, six rebounds
and six assists for the Pacers. They played
without point guard George Hill because of
a concussion and committed 19
turnovers.David West had 17 points and 10
rebounds for the Pacers, who were trying
to reach the Eastern Conference finals for
the first time since 2004.
The winner will face the defending NBA
champion Miami Heat in a series that will
start Wednesday. (AP)
