The Memphis Grizzlies look to avoid elimination as they host the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday for Game 6 of this Western Conference Quarterfinals series. The home team is yet to lose a game in this series, but the Spurs are favored after winning 116-103 on Tuesday to take a 3-2 lead.
The Spurs finished the regular season with a record of 61-21 which was good enough for the 2nd seed in the West. However, they have had their hands full with the 7th seeded Grizzlies so far, especially when playing in Memphis.
The Grizzlies were beaten down in the first two games of this series, leading many to believe it could be over quickly.
But they bounced back and won both of their home games, and now they must win another to stay alive in the playoffs.
San Antonio Spurs
Although they led by double digits at the end, Game 5 was not the same display of Spurs dominance that we saw in Games 1 and 2. The Grizzlies were embarrassed in those first road games, but they were much more competitive on Tuesday.
However, the Spurs were just too good and continued to keep the pressure on. They eventually went on a 13-0 halfway through the 4th quarter that would put the Grizz to bed.
Manu Ginobli finally made a meaningful contribution after being held scoreless in every other game in the series. Ginobli had 10 points, three assists and three steals in 18 minutes of play, but he provided the emotional and energetic boost that the Spurs needed.
Kawhi Leonard continued to be unstoppable with 28 points on 9-18 from the field, as well as six assists. LaMarcus Aldridge continued to be underwhelming with with only 12 points. Tony Parker added 16 points on 6-12 shooting.
Even though they could not come away with the win, the Grizzlies had one of their more impressive offensive performances, shooting 51% from the field as a team.
For an offense that finished the regular season ranked 29th in scoring, it was a good night.
It was the Grizzlies defense which again could not contain Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs, and that would eventually lead to the loss. The three-point defense was particularly bad, allowing the Spurs to hit 14 threes, only two less than their franchise playoff record.
Mike Conley had another impressive performance with 26 points, six assists and four steals. Conley is averaging 24.4 points per game in this series, and he is the main reason they are still in it.
All Star center Marc Gasol contributed 17 points, five rebounds and seven assists. He is averaging 19.6 points in the series, and the Grizz will need strong performances from him and Conley if they want to see a Game 7.

Free Game 6 San Antonio Spurs vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies have won both of their previous home games in this series, but they needed overtime and a Marc Gasol buzzer-beater to win the last one. They outperformed themselves offensively in both of those games, but I expect the Spurs to ratchet up the defense in this one.

The Grizzlies have made this an exciting series, but the Spurs should close it out here.
