This has been a season of firsts for the Memphis Grizzlies. During Game 1 they won the first ever playoff game of their history, they followed that up with their first ever win at home in Game 3.
Now leading the series 2-1 against the top-seeded Spurs, the Grizzlies are not satisfied with just winning one game. They can actually win this series.
With Game 4 in Memphis, the Grizz can take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.
San Antonio has been stifled offensively and have been unable to matchup with the size of the Grizzlies' big men Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph in the paint. The combination of post presence and strong perimeter defense have forced the Spurs' leading scorer leading scorer Tony Parker to have some of the worst postseason outings in recent memory.
If Memphis continues to stop Parker's penetration, Manu Ginobili is still hampered by his non-shooting elbow injury, Antonio McDyess and Tim Duncan continue to be overmatched underneath, and if they keep on defending the three-point line effectively, there's no stopping this monumental upset from happening.
