Grizzlies stun No. 1 Spurs for first playoff winPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports:
The Memphis Grizzlies own the first upset of the NBA playoffs, and they made history in the process.
Zach Randolph had 25 points and 14 rebounds, and Shane Battier hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 23.9 seconds left, and the eighth-seeded Grizzlies won the first playoff game in franchise history, 101-98 over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday…
Tony Parker led the Spurs with 20 points, but they sorely missed All-Star Manu Ginobili, who continued to rest his sprained right elbow. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Ginobili begged to play, and it’s safe bet the All-Star won’t have to convince Popovich for Game 2 on Wednesday…
Gasol had 24 points and nine rebounds. Conley scored 15 points and had 10 assists, and O.J. Mayo had 13 points off the bench.
Tim Duncan had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who lost their sixth straight playoff series opener.
