On the best playoff run in their short history, the Memphis Grizzlies refuse to be satisfied with just reaching their first Western Conference final.

The San Antonio Spurs are looking for a little payback themselves after blowing a 2-0 lead a year ago and missing out on the NBA Finals.

Tony Parker said Saturday the Spurs understand opportunities are rare and know they have a great chance now with home-court advantage against Memphis.

The Grizzlies are the former expansion franchise in its second home. Coach Lionel Hollins, who won an NBA title in 1977 with Portland, has his Grizzlies believing they win one, too.

Grizzlies guard Mike Conley says they are happy to be in the conference finals but remain focused on bigger things.

Game 1 is Sunday in San Antonio.
