Led by the towering pair of Tim Duncan and David Robinson, the Spurs allowed the Knicks to score more than 77 points in only two of the series’ five games. Game 5, held at Madison Square Garden on June 25th, 1999, was the closest game of the Finals, with the Spurs holding on for a nail-biting 78-77 victory over Jeff Van Gundy’s Knicks.
