    The San Antonio Spurs took the Oklahoma City Thunder in six games, punching their return ticket for the NBA Finals. The Spurs pulled off the 112-107 overtime victory, even though one of the team's stars, Tony Parker, had to leave the game early due to ankle soreness. With the Western Conference finals behind them, the Spurs are set to repeat 2013, facing off against the Miami Heat for the championship. Lebron James and the Heat robbed the Spurs of the title last year, but the Spurs' Tim Duncan says they're ready for a rematch. "We're happy that it's the Heat again. We've got that bad taste in our mouths still. Hopefully we'll be ready to take it this time."
