The cornerstone of the San Antonio franchise is the man in the middle, Tim Duncan. But after shooting 0 out of 4 and was held scoreless in the last 6 minutes of their game 7 road game against the New Orleans Hornets what do you think would be the fate of the Spurs? Unfortunately for the Hornets, the Spurs went to their other “SUH-PURS-STAR” Manu Ginobli. Ginobli split his free throws to give the visiting San Antonio squad an 81-70 lead with 5:14 left in the game that killed the hopes of Hornets fans. But the Hornets refused to give up as they unloaded a 10-2 bomb through two three pointers and four free throws solely by Guard Jannero Pargo to cut the deficit to three 80-83 with 1:35 to go.

The next possession of the Spurs proved to be a crucial one but Duncan missed again. The Spurs then clamped down on the Hornets as Parker scored on a jump shot and Ginobli closed out the Hornets with six straight free throws to give his team the 91-82 win. The Spurs missed only two free throws the entire game and had eight more three pointers than the Hornets. his is the message that San Antonio likes to tell the three other teams in this year's conference finals, they can win with Duncan not in sync, they can win on the road in a Game 7! Their title defense is now getting a lot more exciting. Next stop, Kobe and Pau!

The Spurs are the only non division winner in this year’s conference finals. This might be one of the most exciting conference finals in years. Take your pick.
