How the Grizzlies have Disrupted the Spurs’ Offense

In games 1 and 2 of their series against the Memphis Grizzlies, the San Antonio Spurs boasted an offensive rating of 118.2, almost 10 points per 100 possessions higher than their regular season mark. In games 3 and 4, however, their offensive rating fell to 105.9 PP/100. In what has felt like once a game for the last several months of the regular season, the Spurs’ offense been...

Game 5 Preview: San Antonio Spurs vs. Memphis Grizzlies

After losing two straight, the Spurs will hope a return to San Antonio will coincide with a return to form in the decisive Game 5. A series that had been under-billed as an old-school slugfest took its true form midway through the fourth quarter of Game 4: that of a full-blown Dragonball-Z battle — fireballs, drama, sad ending and all. Now with things moving back to San Antonio...

Reasons for Spurs fans to be optimistic against the Grizzlies

And this from a guy not exactly known for his optimism There’s a sense that with the first-round series against the resurgent Memphis Grizzlies tied 2-2 that perhaps it’s time for the Spurs —and by extension their fans— to panic. After all, in Game 4 they wasted what will be, in all likelihood not only Kawhi Leonard’s best overall game of the series but also Tony Parker’s...

The time is ripe for another classic Manu Ginobili Game 5

The only question is whether he comes off the bench or starts. I started writing for Pounding the Rock a few summers ago. As you can imagine, the off-season summer months make it much harder to keep the website filled with articles. Late that summer, PtR Commander in Chief J.R. Wilco wrote a great piece about one his favorite games: The “Manu Game” —Game 5 of the first...

Did blown shot clock call impact the Spurs-Grizzlies finish?

Game Four of the San Antonio Spurs-Memphis Grizzlies series Saturday was an instant classic. It had an incredible duel between the Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard and the Grizzlies’ Mike Conley Jr., with the former scoring San Antonio’s final 16 points to force overtime and finishing with 43 points, and the latter notching 35 points and setting up Marc Gasol’s game-winner. It had huge...

Have the San Antonio Spurs been exposed?

The San Antonio Spurs were absolutely dismantled by the Memphis Grizzlies in game three of their playoff series.  I for one didn’t expect the Grizzlies to win a game and was surprised to see them beat the Spurs in such dominant fashion.  Playoff basketball is such an interesting phenomenon to examine.  A team can win by 20 one night and win by 20 another.  Was this Spurs loss...

Marc Gasol headbutts the ball into the basket for the best putback ever

I don’t care that it didn’t count. The first half of Game 2 between the Spurs and the Grizzlies was mostly a snoozefest with San Antonio opening up a 57-36 lead at the break. But Memphis center Marc Gasol made things interesting late in the half by headbutting a missed shot and getting nothing but net. Unfortunately, the shot did not count due to a foul on the initial miss. And...

If the cliché "he let's his game do the talking" could take on a human form, it would assume the shape of Kawhi Leonard.
