The first game of the series went as expected in this series between the Spurs and Grizzlies.
San Antonio was methodical in their win and now the spread is even larger for game two. The question is that the market will do with it.
You don’t have to bet the Spurs but it is hard to make a case for the Grizzlies bridging the gap in this one.
Unfortunately for Memphis the game played out pretty much as expected. By halftime they were out of it and by the third quarter it was game over.
The only surprise might have been that they were able to get Tony Allen ready for the game, not that it likely had much of an impact. Now they have to hope to regroup and do better in game 2. Hope.
You can’t be surprised by the outcome but I am surprised that Zach Randolph was such a non factor. He shot 3 for 13 and the Grizzlies were a -28 when he was on the court. That’s a pretty ugly stat line.
Vince Carter led Memphis in scoring, one of just two players to get into double digits. The other was Lance Stephenson off the bench. Neither of those two can be relied upon to back up a good game with another one.
The only positive to take from game one is that they were solid shooting from outside, 8 for 18. They are going to need a of that if they are going to close the gap.
The Grizzlies were 15.5 point dogs and the lines has moved up a few points after game one. It is pretty shocking to see a number that big.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs were methodical in their dismantling of Memphis in game one. They won by 32 points despite not getting much from starting shooting guard Danny Green – just 3 points.
Kawhi Leonard led the way with 20 points and unlike some stars he did not need to jack up 20 shots to get there. He also contribute 4 steals and three blocks.
If you like those plus minus stat Manu Ginobili led all Spurs at +24 despite scoring only 2 points in the contest. It just goes to show that the Spurs bench is so much better than Memphis right now, probably their starters.
Other double figure scorers included Lamarcus Aldridge and Patty Mills and Kevin Martin off the bench. This team is so deep.
Tim Duncan may not be a scoring force but he is still an important part of the team, he led in rebounds with 11 and blocked a couple of shots.
San Antonio is not a perfect team but there is nothing that Memphis can exploit to make them feel uncomfortable.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
The oddsmakers had to set the line high to get any sort of balanced money on this one. As this is being written Memphis is grabbing more than 60% of the tickets but I am not going to buy in. I hate rooting for bad teams to not suck so much.

Don’t bet the farm though because that is still a huge number.
