Default Kinda sucks for Memphis

Easily coulda been up 3-0 or 2-1. Just proves how 1 possession of a game or two will decide the series.

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

If you went by how the games were played for the most part, Spurs should be up 2-1. Games 2 and 3 were pretty much the same with opposite roles, except the Spurs held on and Memphis completed the choke.

I don't know how you come away with Memphis being the better team.

Memphis has no offensive firepower to keep up with the Spurs

Easily coulda been up 3-0? They lost game 1 by 20 points and it wasn't that close. The f**k are you smoking? They were barely scraping by and getting close wins against OKC without Westbrook in the last round.

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.

Memphis' defense is getting pummeled. How many times was there an open guy under the basket last game? All those slip screens, fake screen rolls, are just killing them.

Their offense is atrocious too. When they're not making their jump shots it's ugly. Very few plays, they're mostly getting by with being younger and more athletic.

I know right? Same case for the Lakers this year.

Against the Spurs, Randolph is sucking badly (10.3 ppg/.30 FG%), but he also sucked in the regular season (14.3 ppg/.36 FG%).... Grizzlies are going nowhere if it continues.

For some reason, I think both ECF teams would be the Spurs. Hope I'm wrong, though.

I'm obviously a Pacers fan, but the Spurs terrify me. On paper it's a good series, but their experience and Pop scare the hell outta me. We haven't won in San Antonio in like 11 years and there's plenty of outright embarrassing home losses in there as well. I'm not saying we're going to the Finals, not even close, but I'd MUCH rather play Memphis if it happened.
