Home Court Has Been Critical Between Grizz, Spurs

Once the first round series between the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies flipped to the home of blues, the complexion seemed to change. That shouldn’t be a shock, as the home team has now won the past seven games between the Grizz and Spurs.

SHARK BITES
  • The Spurs are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games against the Grizzlies.
  • The visiting team is 3-8 ATS in the last 11 games between the Spurs and Grizzlies.
  • The Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on the road against the Grizzlies.

Memphis welcomed back the grind in Game 2, as the big duo of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph racked up 21 points each with a combined 14 rebounds. Coach David Fizdale stuck with a starting lineup that featured Randolph and James Ennis that has now outscored the Spurs 150-134 since halftime of Game 2.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich did a very Pop thing when, just 52 seconds into the third quarter of Game 3, he benched his entire starting lineup. Careless turnovers early in the second half say the Grizzlies quickly expand their lead and Pop clearly wasn’t having any of that. Kawhi Leonard was held to a series-low 18 points and a 54.5 shooting percentage but played his fewest minutes of any game in the postseason.
