The Memphis Grizzlies got run out of town in Game 1, thanks to a 105-83 beatdown at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs.
Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green led the way for the Spurs, combining for 54 of the Spurs' 105 points on a combined 22-of-33 shooting from the floor.
The Grizzlies were a mess on the defensive side of the ball, allowing the Spurs to a set a franchise playoff record with 14 made three-pointers on 29 attempts.
Quincy Pondexter came off the bench—with 17 points—for the Grizzlies and helped cut the Spurs' lead to just six in the third quarter. But it wasn't enough to get Memphis ahead, because the Spurs were just the better, more disciplined team.
Zach Randolph had the lowest-scoring game of his season, with just two points on 1-of-8 shooting, which certainly helped the Spurs assert their dominance in this one.
The Spurs set the tone early, and that's encouraging for Spurs fans with Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals set for Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
