Grizz Blow Big Lead and Fall in Overtime 104-93
FedExForum— If the Grizzlies plan on playing in the NBA Finals, they’ll have to do something that’s never been done…in NBA history.
Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobli, San Antonio’s Big 3, combined to score 69 points with Duncan and Parker dominating in overtime as the Spurs take a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Grizzlies in the Western Conference Finals…winning Game 3 104-93. No team has ever come back from 0-3 down to win a playoff series…0-107.
The Grizz were on fire to open the game, jumping out to a 29-11 lead, but after the first 12 minutes, it was all San Antonio.
Mike Conley led the Grizzlies with 20, Marc Gasol had 16 points and 14 rebounds and Quincy Pondexter was huge off the bench with 15 points. But despite another double double of 14 points and 15 boards, Zach Randolph was just 5 of 14 from the floor.
Game 4 is Monday night at the Grindhouse with the Grizzlies out to save their season.
