Zach Randolph had been playing great in the playoffs, but in Game 1 he was blanketed by the San Antonio defense and only scored 2 points on 1/8 shooting. It is key that he and Marc Gasol, who was 7/15 for 15 points in Game 1, ley the Memphis offense.

It is pretty obvious that the Grizzlies need to play better perimeter D tonight, as in Game 1 they allowed the Spurs to make a franchise record 14 3-pointers and overall shot a 3-pt FG% of 48.3%.

Tim Duncan did not have a big Game 1, but Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, and Danny Green combined for 54 points and all 3 players shot well over 50% from the floor.

The Griz need Randolph to score tonight and overall they need more balanced scoring. In Game 1 Gasol and Mike Conley were the only 2 Memphis starters that scored in double figures.

The Grizzlies cannot come out flat in this game like they did in Game 1 when after the first quarter the Spurs jumped out to a 31-17 lead.

In some betting trends for this playoff game the Grizzlies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss, and they have an Over record of 6-2 in their last 8 road games.

The Spurs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall, 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games following a S.U. win, and they have an Over record of 4-1 in their last 5 home games.

The Spurs are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 home games against the Grizzlies.

Jason’s Pick: I think this series will be a good one and while the Grizzlies may not win tonight they will play much better defense than they did in Game 1 and at least cover the spread.
