Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs Live
Given the fact that Memphis entered the post-season as number eight seed in the West, hardly anyone thought that the team around Zach Randolph could make life difficult for San Antonio. Yet, the Memphis Grizzlies started the series with a win in Texas and will now try to hold on to their momentum when they take on Tony Parker and the San Antonio Spurs in game two on Thursday at 0:30 a.m. GMT.
Albeit it should be noted that All-Star guard Manu Ginobili missed the Spurs’ playoff start, his absence can certainly not account for the poor performance across the board in San Antonio’s loss on Sunday. Unlike in the regular season, coach Greg Popovich’s team struggled from beyond the arc while getting beaten every time down the floor in the low-post as well. More specifically, Memphis’ big men Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph dominated the paint despite facing double-teams on a regular basis. That said, Tim Duncan played fairly well offensively but will need more support from his teammates in the remainder of the series. Therefore, the Spurs are under significant pressure to avoid going down 0-2 when they meet the Grizzlies on Thursday.
