Spurs Aim to Continue Dominance of Grizz

Zach Randolph Tim Duncan

The Walking Dead’s season may have ended for fans of the critically acclaimed TV show, but the Memphis Grizzlies have epitomized that name on the hardwood. The banged up Grizz fell flat on their faces in a Game 1 106-74 rout to the San Antonio Spurs and will be seeking a better effort tonight when Game 2 gets underway in the Lone Star State.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as home favorites.
  • The Grizzlies are 0-7 SU in their last seven games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Grizzlies' last seven games on the road.

In light of the loss, Memphis is now 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings between the squads. The UNDER is also 5-2 in their previous seven matchups.

Newly-crowned Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard paved the way for the Spurs on Sunday, finishing with four of San Antonio’s 13 steals and three of its nine blocks. The All-Star forward held Matt Barnes to two points on 1-of-7 shooting.

Vince Carter (16 points) and Lance Stephenson (14 points) did their part for the Grizzlies, but no other player scored more than seven. The setback was Memphis’ worst-ever playoff defeat.
