Grizzlies lead series 2-1

These Grizzlies have been busy this postseason making lots of history at the Spurs’ expense. They opened this series with their first playoff win, and now the No. 8 seed has a 2-1 lead over the Western Conference’s best team during the regular season.
Memphis is trying to become just the fourth team to knock off the top-seeded team. Game 4 is Monday night in Memphis.
Marc Gasol scored 17 points, Mike Conley had 14 and O.J. Mayo had 10 off the bench for Memphis. Manu Ginobili led the Spurs with 23 points. Tony Parker had 16, Tim Duncan 13 and George Hill 11. The Spurs only led early and never by more than 1, the last at 12-11. They fell behind by as much as 15 before managing to tie it up twice in the final 8:06, the last at 80 on a Ginobili free throw. Parker’s reverse layup pulled the Spurs within 88-86 with 1:04 left. The Grizzlies took a timeout, and Randolph looked for an option with the shot clock ticking down, then he put up the 3-pointer over Duncan’s outstretched arm. The ball fell in with 41.9 seconds left for a 91-86 lead that sparked fans to chant his nickname “Z-Bo, Z-Bo.” Ginobili hit a pair of free throws with 31 seconds, but the Spurs couldn’t get off a shot coming up the right side at the end. Ginobili got stopped and looked like he was trying to pass while Duncan tried to call timeout. He was too late as the horn sounded, sparking a big celebration.
The Spurs managed to outrebound Memphis 48-37, but the Grizzlies had a 44-40 edge in the paint as they worked the ball inside to Randolph and Gasol. They also had a 17-9 edge on the fast break against the Spurs. The NBA’s best 3-point shooting team was a meager 2 of 15. Memphis hit only 4 of 11, including Randolph’s big 3. Antonio McDyess went to the locker room with 2:56 left in pain, but no update was immediately available on his injury. The Spurs thought getting Ginobili back and winning Game 2 got them back on track. But San Antonio ended the regular season losing six of their final seven road games, and Memphis won 30 of its 46 games in the FedExForum. The Grizzlies also had just the fifth sellout crowd of the season rooting them on. Memphis tapped into the city’s past by bringing out wrestler Jerry Lawler to help fire up the sold-out crowd after a party outside the FedExForum in anticipation of the Grizzlies’ first home playoff game since 2006. One fan had a
blown-up cutout of Eva Longoria’s head with a Grizzlies’ headband, and it was held up near courtside trying to taunt Parker.
All the excitement may have been too much as Memphis, with eight Grizzlies in their first home playoff game, missing six of its first seven shots. They settled down and hit nine of the next 11. The Spurs had made an NBA-best 58 free throws through the first two games, more than the Grizzlies had even attempted. Gasol picked up a foul on the Spurs’ first possession, except Duncan hit only air on his first attempt while clanking the second off the front rim. The Spurs’ last lead in the first half came when George Hill tipped in a shot at 12-11. Gasol put Memphis ahead with a three-point play, kicking off an
18-8 spurt that left the Grizzlies up 29-20 at the end of the first quarter. The Grizzlies pushed that lead to as much as 15.

NOTES: Randolph was 8 of 43 from 3-point range during the season and had attempted only one in the postseason before his clinching shot. … With Duncan, the Spurs have never won a series they started with home-court advantage only to
lose two of the first three. … Memphis had been 0-4 in the playoffs at the FedExForum and 0-6 overall at home
