The San Antonio Spurs are up 2-0 in the Western Conference finals after a sensational Game 2 performance by Tony Parker.

Sound familiar?

The Spurs are right back in the same spot they were a year ago, when they won both of their home games to start the conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Parker had 34 points and made 16 of 21 shots in Game 2 last year.

Then San Antonio lost four straight games after the Thunder switched up their defense against him.

Parker had 15 points and a career-best 18 assists in San Antonio's 93-89 overtime win against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night, but says the Spurs "can't take anything for granted" heading into Game 3 on Saturday night in Memphis.
