San Antonio Spurs Beat LA Clippers 102-99 to enter West Finals

Compared to the first three games, this was closed in the final period. San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan scored 21 points while Tony Parker added 17 and the San Antonio Spurs beat Los Angeles Clippers 102-99 sweeping LA Clippers 4-0. The Spurs now advance to the Western Conference finals, and will wait for the winner between the Oklahoma Thunders and Los Angeles Lakers.

The Spurs now extend their winning streak to 18 games and their playoff record to 8-0, tying the third best postseason streak in franchise history.

The San Antonio Spurs trailed most of the final quarter but was able to tie the score twice in the final 3:32 before the big three of Duncan, Ginobili and Parker took over.

With 10.5 seconds left in the game, the Clippers still have a chance to tie the game in the final quarter and maybe send it to overtime but Los Angeles Clippers star point guard Chris Paul missed a shot, that spelled their doom. 

The Clippers were led by Chris Paul with 23 points, while Blake Griffin added 21 point.
