SAN ANTONIO -- It won't be pretty.
"Sorry," Tim Duncan said on Friday when asked about the upcoming Western Conference finals with the Memphis Grizzlies. "It's just not going to be."
The Grizz are in San Antonio after knocking off the top-seeded Oklahoma Thunder in Game 5. In 2011, they eliminated another top-seeded team out of the playoffs: The Spurs.
It's a series Tim Duncan and the rest of the team don't forget.
"It's going to be two teams that are trying to impose the wills of each other," Duncan said. "Two very well-coached, good-executing, tough-minded defensive and that's just how the series is going to go."
Game 1 tips off on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. CST inside the AT&T Center.
