It’s all evened up with two games a piece, as the series heads back to San Antonio. Game 4 was an overtime thriller as the superstars from both teams put on a show for the ages. Both teams have defended their home courts well, and now we are down to a best of three matchup.
The Memphis Grizzlies seemed dead in the water as they limped into the postseason with the 7th seed and were blown out in Games 1 and 2 of this series. The Grizzlies roared back in Games 3 and 4, evening the series and proving they can compete with anyone.
The San Antonio Spurs were one of the best teams in the NBA during the regular season, finishing with the second-best record in the league at 61-21.
The Spurs breezed through the first two games of this series, but now they must rebound as the Grizzlies have them on their heels.
Considering the way the Memphis Grizzlies were blown out in Games 1 and 2, most people did not expect this series to be tied, heading back to San Antonio.
Not to mention the way they played over the last six weeks of the regular season, with two separate losing streaks of more than six games.
But surprises like these are why we love the NBA Playoffs. Mike Conley stepped up in a huge way with one of his best postseason performances of his career. Conley traded blows with MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard down the stretch of Game 4, and eventually helped the Grizz to come out on top.
Conley finished the game with 35 points, including 4-8 from three-point rage, as well as nine rebounds and eight assists. But it was All Star center Marc Gasol who nailed the game winner as the clock expired in overtime.
Gasol had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the game.
San Antonio Spurs
Even though they won 60+ games again this year, this is not the same old Spurs team.
That has been exemplified in this series, particularly in Sunday’s loss. In that game, Kawhi Leonard dominated the ball and carried his team into overtime, scoring the final 16 points for the Spurs in regulation.
Leonard was incredible in that game– again proving himself to be one of the best players in the world– but it seemed as though he was all they had through much of the game.
Tony Parker has been impressive, looking like the Tony Parker of old at times, but the responsibility for winning clearly lies on Kawhi’s shoulders alone.
Leonard had 43 points and eight rebounds, and the Spurs were +18 with him on the court.
Parker had 22 points, and LaMarcus Aldridge chipped in 13. No other Spur scored in double figures.

Both teams play defense at an elite level, but three of the four games in this series have been Over. The Grizzlies seemed to have remembered how to score, and San Antonio can always put up points.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: OVER 186.5
The Spurs are still the better team and should get the SU win at home, but I expect this one to be closer than the first two in San Antonio.
