Given the overall proficiency of San Antonio as a shooting team, most notably in the three-point department (San Antonio led the league in the regular season), Memphis’ calling card of success against the Spurs has been methodical and sound defensive play. So far, it is San Antonio who has embellished that principle in this series.

San Antonio Spurs at Memphis Grizzlies Prediction

Very simply this series looks like it’s going to get out of hand very quickly given the play of San Antonio in Games One and Two. However, Memphis is a different basketball team at home when compared to when they are on the road. Despite San Antonio winning by 29 points in Game One, Memphis is cast as a mild underdog in this contest because they have held this Spurs team to just 74 points in the FedEx Forum on Feburary 6th. If Memphis wants to have any chance of getting back into this series, they will need a win here and now, as a 3-0 deficit against San Antonio will be very hard to overcome. Look for an animated and charged Grizzlies fan-base to give Memphis the home court advantage it needs to notch a much-needed win.
