The San Antonio Spurs clicked on all cylinders in their 111-82 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 1. Memphis could get over its painful Game 1 defeat by beating the Spurs in Game 2 at AT&T Center tonight at 9:30 p.m ET on TNT.
In the early stages of Game 1, the Grizzlies couldn’t miss their shots. When the Spurs took their second timeout in the first quarter, Memphis was ahead, 22-9. However, in classic Spurs fashion, they made adjustments and began playing like a well-oiled machine from there.
In fact, San Antonio took its first lead with 8:53 left in the second quarter. The Spurs held a 52-49 lead at halftime and never looked back. With a 74-64 lead late in the third quarter, the Spurs went on a 19-0 run that ended with under nine minutes left in the fourth quarter. San Antonio outscored Memphis by 34 points in the final three quarters.
Kawhi Leonard finished the game with 32 points, and LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 20. Leonard connected on 11 of his 14 attempts from the field and kept knocking down contested shots. He also used his speed and strength to drive to the hoop for high percentage shots.
Memphis center Marc Gasol couldn’t miss earlier on, as he made his first three attempts from the field. He showed his range by hitting a three-pointer to give the Grizzlies a 5-0 lead early in the first quarter. Gasol scored 32 points but only chipped in seven in the second half. Mike Conley had 13 points, but he didn’t score after the second quarter.
Indeed, Memphis has to put Game 1 in the rear-view mirror and play better against the Spurs in Game 2. If the Grizzlies want to tie the series, other players must step up. Gasol shouldn’t have to shoulder the scoring load alone. Zach Randolph and JaMychal Green combined for nine points. That’s can’t happen again.
