Still think Memphis is the better team though.

Edit* My bad, did not mean it should be 3-0. was thinking of the Indiana series, game 1 was close in that one. More like 2-1 Memphis
I'll never have your thought process. The better team is the team that is winning, whether is mismatches or coaching, you have to gut it out and win if you're the better team.

Memphis would give up a lot to trade Tony Allen for Danny Green in this series. Just as superstars make teammates better, offensively challenged players like Allen make them worse. At least Green and Leonard keep the defense honest

Allen is a situational player to me, not a starter. That's the issue with him. I think it hurt them when they got ride of Gay and got Prince.

the better team always wins the series...so I don't know how Memphis is still the better team. If they were they would make those 1 or 2 plays

if they don't trade Rudy then Conley can't grow.

That's what I thought about the Heat before last year's Finals, so its best to be careful before making such a predicition.

However, it does appear that both the Heat and Pacers are playing better ball than either team in the WCF.

Correct, but now they're missing that prototypical scorer that Gay is. Gay brought something to that team that no one has right now. No one player filled his role after he got traded, the team just overall molded itself and moved on which worked out fine becuase Conley developed more, but now that shows in the Spurs series not having that game-changing player that he is.

After he got traded from Memphis he got decreased minutes in Toronto (exactly 2 minutes less per game), but ever single offensive category went up because he became the main focal point of their offense and he became more efficient in each catagory as well.

The Spurs embarrassed them in game 1; dominated and controlled most of game 2; and controlled and outplayed them in quarters 2-4 and dominated OT in game 3.

There's only been two stretches of the entire series where the Grizzlies looked like the better team: the 4th quarter of game 2 when they made their comeback and the 1st quarter of game 3 where they built an 18 point lead.
Yeah, but it was a close 20.

Zack Randolph's entire reputation is built on beasting on an injured Duncan two years ago. Hard to play defense when both your ankles are sprained and you have no mobility. Every game since then, Duncan's owned him pretty badly. In their eight head-to-head games since 2011:

TD: 18 ppg/11 rpg/3.4 apg/2.5 blks on 53%

ZBo: 12 ppg/11 rpg/1.6 apg/0.3 blks on 34%

Zbo's been exposed as another one-dimensional big men that feasts on garbage defenses and injured teams. Not surprising that he's shitting his pants now that he has to face a healthy Tim Duncan.

Dude, Randolph is a f*cking beast and you're blind if you can't see that. There's no shame in putting up 12/11 against a team that's perfectly built to shut you down.
