San Antonio, TX – The second episode of Spurs Flashback, a 90-minute weekly show highlighting memorable games in Spurs history, will air tonight at 9 p.m. on Fox Sports Southwest. Tonight’s show will feature the 115-112 victory over Philadelphia in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on April 22, 1979.
 
Tonight’s show is hosted by Andrew Monaco and Sean Elliott and was taped in front of a live-studio audience made up of season ticket holders on Monday, November 14 at the AT&T Center’s Fan Zone. The special on-set guest for this show was the leader of the 1978-79 Spurs, Head Coach Doug Moe.
 
The win put San Antonio ahead in the playoff series 3-1 in the best-of-seven game format and the Spurs would go on to defeat Julius Erving and the Sixers 4-3. The Spurs were led by George Gervin, who recorded 32 points, while Larry Kenon added 23 points and 9 rebounds.
 
It was a back-and-fourth contest throughout, remaining only a slim two-point Spurs lead heading into the final quarter. According to Jeff Grossman of the San Antonio Express-News at the time, "Gervin sank the most difficult and important shot of the day with 46 seconds left, sticking a 24-foot facial over at least two Sixers from the deep right corner to give the Spurs a 112-106 lead."

 

"Ice said he felt the shot," said Moe after the game. "It was a heckuva shot."

 

On Monday, while watching the playback of the game, Moe knew it would be a see-saw, offensive battle. "We could score and the big thing was you scored more than the other team. You know, they talk about defense and that you didn't play defense, but if you kept scoring more than the other team you were playing better defense," remembered Moe with a smile.

 

Spurs Flashback will continue to air every Wednesday evening at 9 p.m. on Fox Sports Southwest. Each show will feature a special on-set guest from the respective game, as well as features and memories from players, coaches, media and season ticket holders from that highlighted season.

 

Following each broadcast, Spurs fans can check-out a 10-minute feature called ‘Postgame’ on spurs.com that will feature additional interviews, questions and insight with Elliott, Monaco and studio guests. For more information on the series and the broadcast schedule, visit spurs.com.
