(LOS ANGELES) — The San Antonio Spurs had six players score in double figures, as they upended the Los Angeles Clippers 102-99, advancing to the Western Conference Finals for the seventh time since 1999.
The Spurs have gone a perfect 8-0 in their first two playoff series, which has generated questions of how this team compares to Spurs championship teams of the past.
Point guard Tony Parker has been a part of three Spurs championship squads. He talks about comparing the teams.
“I don’t like to compare teams,” Parker said. “A lot of people ask me if this team is better. Until we win a championship there is no way I can compare this team. For me we didn’t accomplish anything. We just arrived to the conference finals, and we know we are going to play a very good team, so until we go all the way, I can’t compare this team.”
The Spurs are just the fourth team since the first round of the playoffs to become a best-of-seven series that has swept their first two playoff series.
