20. Nazr Mohammed

When it became apparent Rasho Nesterovic couldn't keep up with modern bigs in 2005, Nazr Mohammed came to the rescue. The 6-10 center started in all 23 postseason games on the 2005 title team, averaging 7.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. Nazr's biggest game came at a crucial time, as he scored 19 points and pulled down seven boards to help the Spurs take a 3-2 series lead over the SuperSonics in the second round of the playoffs.

19. Marco Belinelli

A big reason the Spurs were so deadly in 2014 was how they could hurt you both inside and out. That season, Marco Belinelli led the Spurs with a 43% shooting mark from downtown, fifth-best in the NBA. He kept that up in the playoffs, nailing 16 of 38 for 42%. His extremely important shooting and this shot, in particular, lands him in the top 20.

18. Mario Elie

After winning two titles with Hakeem Olajuwon in Houston, Mario Elie was able to enjoy one more championship with another of the greatest players of all time in Tim Duncan. The shooting guard started in all 17 playoff games on the first title-winning team in franchise history, averaging 7.9 points, 2.9 assists, and 1.3 steals along the way. While his outside shooting dipped in the 1999 playoffs, the Spurs luckily had another guard catch fire at that time. He happens to be next on the list.

17. Jaren Jackson

Back in 1999, making five or more threes in a playoff game was very rare. Jaren Jackson did so three times in the Spurs' dominant 15-2 run to their first title. Considering he came off the bench for the entire playoffs, scoring 23 points per 100 possessions is indicative of just how good of a postseason he had. Jackson led the NBA in both playoff 3-point makes and attempts that season, highlighted by 6-of-11 nights versus the Lakers and Trail Blazers.

16. Michael Finley

The San Antonio Spurs made it out of a tricky first round against Denver in 2007 thanks largely in part to Michael Finley. The sharpshooter put up 16 points per game on a Kerr-like 52.8% shooting mark from beyond the arc throughout the series, capping it off with an unforgettable 8-of-9 night from downtown to finish with 26 points. Big-time stuff.
