The Spurs demolished the Houston Rockets last night to advance to their tenth Western Conference Finals under Coach Gregg Popovich. That is no small feat considering their injury circumstances and this being their first season without franchise cornerstone Tim Duncan in 20 years.
A tall task lays ahead for the Spurs against the heavily favored and wildly talented Golden State Warriors, but if Kawhi Leonard can return to full strength and LaMarcus Aldridge and the role players play like they did last night, anything is possible for these Spurs, even without their veteran leader in Tony Parker.
