After a grueling seven-game series with the Dallas Mavericks, the San Antonio Spurs earned some rest by making quick work of the Portland Trail Blazers.
A game, a series, a season, they all would hinge on one shot.
The San Antonio shrugged off the loss of Tony Parker to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 104-82 and win their Western Conference semi-final series 4-1.
Joe Johnson scored 34 points, but he lost the ball on the Nets’ final possession as the Heat eliminated their high-priced opponents and returned to the conference finals.

Steve Kerr agreed to a deal to coach the Golden State Warriors, leaving Phil Jackson and the Knicks to turn to Plan B in their coaching search.
Phil Jackson suffered his first loss as Knicks president when Steve Kerr, his one and only choice to coach the team, agreed to a five-year deal with the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. Kerr accepted a five-year, $25 million contract one day after the Knicks agreed to increase their offer by making a fourth year guaranteed.
No one knows if Steve Kerr can coach, even though he leveraged himself, thanks to Phil Jackson and the Knicks, into being the hottest candidate who’s never coached a day in his life, at least if you don’t count him sitting next to Marv Albert on television.
The Knicks don’t get Steve Kerr and that has to be a terrible disappointment for Phil Jackson. Maybe it’ll be a good thing. This is all guess work, just as giving Phil Jackson the job of rebuilding the Knicks into a championship contender was the ultimate guess on Jim Dolan’s part.
