San Antonio vs. Memphis, Final Score: Spurs take Game 5 from Grizzlies, 116-103

The bench showed up, and the Spurs rediscovered their mojo on the way to an emphatic victory. The Spurs came back home in desperate need of a win after losing Games 3 and 4 in Memphis, and they responded in emphatic fashion. It was much more of a team effort with five players scoring in double digits, led by 28 from Kawhi Leonard, and the defense was better (if not great) as the...

Did blown shot clock call impact the Spurs-Grizzlies finish?

Game Four of the San Antonio Spurs-Memphis Grizzlies series Saturday was an instant classic. It had an incredible duel between the Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard and the Grizzlies’ Mike Conley Jr., with the former scoring San Antonio’s final 16 points to force overtime and finishing with 43 points, and the latter notching 35 points and setting up Marc Gasol’s game-winner. It had huge...

Have the San Antonio Spurs been exposed?

The San Antonio Spurs were absolutely dismantled by the Memphis Grizzlies in game three of their playoff series.  I for one didn’t expect the Grizzlies to win a game and was surprised to see them beat the Spurs in such dominant fashion.  Playoff basketball is such an interesting phenomenon to examine.  A team can win by 20 one night and win by 20 another.  Was this Spurs loss...

Marc Gasol headbutts the ball into the basket for the best putback ever

I don’t care that it didn’t count. The first half of Game 2 between the Spurs and the Grizzlies was mostly a snoozefest with San Antonio opening up a 57-36 lead at the break. But Memphis center Marc Gasol made things interesting late in the half by headbutting a missed shot and getting nothing but net. Unfortunately, the shot did not count due to a foul on the initial miss. And...
