View from the Enemy: Game 6

New, comment

Spurs fans enjoy their Game 6 victory to Grizzlies fans’ chagrin

View from the Enemy

Game 6 has come and gone, and the Memphis Grizzlies came out on the losing end against the San Antonio Spurs, 103-96.

The Grizzlies went into Game 6 facing elimination. They tried and put a great effort, but a Game 6 loss marked the end of the Grizzlies season. It ended a later than the Grizzlies probably deserve to, but it ended. A fantastic season all-around, but that’s a discussion for another day. Today, we just look at the Game 6 loss from the Spurs perspective.

We’re very aware what Grizzlies fans think of this game. Well, because we’re Grizzlies fans, so we know. But there are allegedly other fans of NBA teams, even including the Spurs! Would you look at that.

So we share their thoughts with you Grizzlies fans. We took the comments from our great Spurs’ blog Pounding the Rock and their GameThread and some Tweets throughout the whole Twitter website. Enjoy the different perspective.


Same.

GO SPURS!!!!!! GO SPURS!!!!!! GO SPURS!!!!!! GO SPURS!!!!!! GO SPURS!!!!!! GO SPURS!!!!!!

BREAKING: Spurs fans are big Spurs fans.

Have worn my David Robinson socks to work for extra good luck

They’ll clamp hard on Patty tonight. I’m most curious to see Manu…40 yr old Manu…and can he do the Manu voodoo… part two

Crazy they never call Z-Bo for an offensive foul. Dude literally throws punches to clear space.

You punch ONE guy in the playoffs and get a bad reputation smh.

Le Tony with Le vintage performance so far!

TP on fire early

Verde

V3RD3

VERDE

I don’t know what this means, but it seems exciting.

Who'd've thought a Finals MVP could have a Playoff version of himself, amirite?

I’m pretty sure that nobody saw TP playing like this. Nobody.

Yeah Tony Parker had a good 1st quarter :(

Jeez Kawhi

This is the first time I see Kawhi mad

conley, man

God damn it, Mike

We should’ve kept JaMychal

Mwahahahahaha he is ours now.

Big Shot Tony, the man who hibernates all winter

TONY PARKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tony Parker has 15 at this point. Based on PtR’s GameThread he’s on pace to beat Wilt’s 100.

Already very clear the refs have no interest in calling this game fair. Memphis getting every single ticky tack nonsense garbage and Spurs aren’t allowed to play ANY defense.

Hard to win 5-on-8.

In our experience, all you have to do is give a passionate postgame presser and everything will be fine. Make sure you have catchy catchphrases.

Unforced turnovers are probably the reasons why this game is in Grizzlies’ favor right now.

GR333N3 steal!

GR333N3 block!

>letting one of the worst 3 point shooting teams imitate the Warriors of last year

lol

Good time to remind folks the Grizzlies were up 2-1 on the Warriors that won the NBA Championship.

Do they EVER miss at home? These guys were nowhere to be found in the regular season but now they’re 7/13 from three all of a sudden. Spurs aren’t shooting bad, they’ve just gotten up more shots than we have.

Good god this is the same team that won 43 games? Did they really tank to get us again? I dont think they play this well they matched up vs Golden State or Houston

Goodness gracious our bigs are TRASH, I’m just gonna blame it on match up issues and hope for better if we make it to the next round

And we are getting THOROUGHLY outcoached

They cannot miss a thing Boy

Zach Randolph keeps fouling and gets called for nothing.

Grit and grind is code for dirty

Maybe your team is just soft you ever think of that.

Exactly 5 more 3’s and a 5 point game.

Kawhi’s so good I feel like nobody appreciates him enough. He’s just amazingly good all the time and we’re spoiled.

I love you, Whi Whi. You’re the best. I said so to a student today, best there is, period.

Why do they want to double-team Marc Gasol and leave one Grizzlie player wide open for 3? They are knocking down tons of 3s.

More Danny Green 3s! More! more! more!

I knew he was going to get it in the hole at some point!

Really good sign that Danny hit one. Hopefully he can go from icy to hot in the same game.

Danny Green had us here I cannot disagree as much as I want to.

LMA ROAR

LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

YES Sharkus!

SHARKUS BEASTING NOW!!!

This is the first time I’ve heard Sharkus as a nickname for LaMarcus Aldridge and quite honestly it’s one of the best nicknames in the league. Go Spurs fans.

MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

GINOBILI!!!!!!

GEE-NO-BLI FOR 4!!

if we score more points than them we will win the game – magic johnson

Yeah, but consider this...go Grizzlies.

Z Bo can get away with whatever he wants

My goodness. Nail biters…

Memphis fans have no right to complain about the officiating

But....they’re not gon rook us??? Have you heard of “Take That for Data”??

If anyone has any doubts the NBA is rigged, just watch a Spurs playoff series and you’ll see how the opponents are kept in the game.

Disclaimer: Every fanbase has this guy. The Grizzlies’ guy that does this is our coach. But it’s funny anyway.

Tony guarding Conley as well as anyone.

GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!! GO SPURS GO!!!
