Grizzlies at Spurs: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs (-5, 181.5)

Spurs lead best-of-seven series 1-0.

The Memphis Grizzlies dug themselves a hole in each of their first two playoff series. And the San Antonio Spurs haven’t forgotten what happened in last season’s Western Conference finals. Memphis attempts to even the series in Tuesday’s Game 2 against the host Spurs after being blown out 105-83 in the opener. San Antonio set a franchise postseason record with 14 3-pointers and Grizzlies star Zach Randolph was a nonfactor with two points.

The Spurs had a 2-0 lead in the West finals a year ago before Oklahoma City won the next four games. That bad taste still resonates with the San Antonio veterans. “I can promise you this: Nobody’s happy in our locker room because we were up 2-0 last year and we lost,” Spurs point guard Tony Parker said. “It’s just one game. It means nothing. We still have a long way to go.” Memphis was down 0-2 against the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round and lost the opener against the Thunder so this isn’t new territory for the franchise. “We were soft,” Randolph said of the Game 1 showing. “We didn’t play our game. We didn’t play grit and grind basketball.”

ABOUT THE GRIZZLIES: Randolph played so poorly that he apologized to his teammates. He was 1-of-8 shooting with his lone basket coming on a putback with 9:26 left in the game. “I have to come out and give them something,” Randolph told reporters on Monday. “I’ve been hard on myself. I couldn’t sleep (Sunday) night.” San Antonio placed a heavy emphasis on stopping Randolph and routinely collapsed multiple defenders on him and also fronted him so he couldn’t receive the ball in areas in which he could operate. Randolph had four double-doubles in the five games against Oklahoma City and Memphis has no shot at beating the Spurs if the two-time All-Star can’t get his game going.

ABOUT THE SPURS: A huge factor in the Game 1 win was the outstanding long-range shooting. The Spurs were 14-for-29 from 3-point range with forwards Matt Bonner and Kawhi Leonard making four apiece and Danny Green hitting three. “It’s highly improbable we’re going to shoot at the clip we did last game,” Bonner told reporters on Monday. “They’ve got the best defense in the league. They’re going to come out and make adjustments and play better on defense for sure.” Point guard Tony Parker had 20 points and nine assists in the opener and has eight 20-point outings this postseason.

TRENDS:

* Grizzlies are 5-0 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss.
* Spurs are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
* Over is 7-1 in Grizzlies’ last eight Tuesday games.
* Over is 4-0 in Spurs’ last four Conference Finals games.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. San Antonio has held opponents under 90 points in five of its 11 postseason games.

2. Grizzlies reserve Quincy Pondexter scored 17 points in Game 1 and made all five of Memphis’ 3-pointers.

3. Spurs PF Tim Duncan had just six points in Game 1, marking the seventh time in 201 career postseason games that he failed to score in double digits.

2013 NBA Playoffs

Zach Randolph averages over 17 ppg in his 12-year career, but Game 1, Spurs held him to two points (1-8 FG) in 28 minutes (-28), so Grizzlies have lot of room to improve there. Memphis covered ten of their last 11 games, winning eight of last ten; they're 5-1 vs spread in last six games on road. Home team won last five series games, with Grizzlies losing last three here by 4-21-22 points. Over is 8-4 in Grizzlies' playoff games, 5-2 on road. Spurs are 4-2 vs spread as playoff home favorite. No Grizzly starter took a 3-pointer in Game 1 (Pondexter 5-9, others 0-3).
