Right away in Game 1, the Grizzlies knew that they were in a heck of a lot of trouble. They haven’t been able to meet the intensity level that the Spurs have brought to the table. San Antonio was up by 17 points at the end of the first quarter, and there was really never a shot for the Grizz to get back into the swing of things. That being said, we don’t think that this series is over yet. Memphis played an absolutely awful night offensively, but we just don’t think that F Zach Randolph is going to score just two points again in this game, and he probably isn’t only pulling down seven rebounds either. C Marc Gasol also only had seven boards on the night as well. For as much as we do like this San Antonio team, we don’t know if this is the time that it is going to ultimately take a huge lead in this series. We aren’t keen to the way that G Manu Ginobili has been playing, and we really don’t feel all that much about these Spurs in Game 2, knowing that they knocked down 14-of-29 shots from beyond the arc. There’s just no way that happens again in this one, and if it doesn’t, there is a great shot for the Grizzlies to at least stay in front of the number, if not winning this game SU.
