Spurs fans didn't waste any time in celebrating Sunday after the team's blow out win over the Mavericks.

The celebration began inside the AT&T Center where fans were loud from the opening tip-off until the final whistle.

"It was explosive. Everybody was just on their feet just like they were supposed to, and we made some noise," said Spurs fan, Peggy Guerrero.

Game 7 was a blowout. The Spurs ended the Texas showdown with a 119-96 victory.

"It was freaking amazing. I had no doubts coming into this game. I could not wait. All the Mavs fans that were here, we sent them home," said Jenna Nix.

The celebration quickly spilled into the streets of downtown. Car after car, fans honked their horns and waved their Spurs flags proudly.

"It's always special. It's always special when we beat Dallas," said David Hernandez.

The Drive for 5 is in full swing and both the Spurs and the city are expecting nothing less than a championship ring.
