The Austin Spurs will be celebrating their NBA G League championship with their fans on Friday.
The Spurs defeated the Raptors 98-76 Tuesday to win their second championship in franchise history.
The celebration will be held at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and will be free. Austin Spurs players, coaches and other local officials will be in attendance. Photo opportunities with the trophy and autographs will be available.
Seating is open inside the arena on a first come, first served basis. The first 2,000 fans to enter the arena will receive a commemorative t-shirt. Fans can also enjoy $2 beer for the final Thirsty SpursDays of the season.
“The hard work and selfless commitment of our players and staff has made this championship possible,” Austin Spurs general manager Andy Birdsong said in a statement. “I could not be prouder of all they have accomplished. We look forward to celebrating with our Austin Spurs family on Friday.”
In Tuesday’s decisive game, five Spurs players scored in double figures.
Nick Johnson came off the bench and scored 17 points, including a thunderous alley-oop dunk in the fourth quarter, on his way to being named G League finals MVP.
