The Memphis Grizzlies are in San Antonio for the first time this season to take on the Spurs. The Grizzlies won both games in Memphis against San Antonio and have an opportunity tonight to win the season series. That would be a massive step for the Grizzlies, who may have to beat the Spurs in a first round series in order to go on a playoff run.
A tall task, to be sure- San Antonio is one of the NBA's very best teams, with one of the NBA's very best players in Kawhi Leonard. LaMarcus Aldridge is one of the best post players in the Association, and Gregg Popovich is a future Hall of Famer as a coach. The Grizzlies will need to play a heck of a lot better than they did against the Pelicans if they hope to win their third game against the Spurs this season.
