The Grizz have youth and size and the Spurs have experience and size....I'm taking the Spurs because I think experience wins out.

I think this series will be super close and most of the games will be nail-biters. I think the Spurs will win, but I will predict each game.

Game 1@San Antonio-Grizzlies win (Grizzlies lead 1-0)
Game 2@San Antonio-Spurs win (Series tied 1-1)
Game 3@Memphis-Spurs win (Spurs lead 2-1)
Game 4@Memphis-Grizzlies win (Series tied 2-2)
Game 5@San Antonio-Spurs win (Spurs lead 3-2)
Game 6@Memphis-Grizzlies win (Series tied 3-3)
Game 7@San Antonio-Spurs win (Spurs win 4-3)

Spurs advance to Finals and play the Heat, and we will be in for a great NBA Finals.

Spurs in 5 or 6

I believe that the Spurs will summon up everything they have left, to defeat the Grizz. This will be the Spurs (Finals)... Then they play the HEAT (unless the league have other plans).

I feel that the script writers MIGHT have Lbj sweep the Spurs... This will elevate Lbj legacy and would be a reversal of fortune (2007 finals, Lbj Cav's got swept by the Spurs).

Or you never know... Stern might want to show the world that the league has parity in his final year, and actually have a Grizz vs Pacers Finals.

It's his league, he can do whatever he wants... I'm just going to enjoy the show.

Spurs in 6.

Just seeing how the Grizz could not consistently pull away from an OKC team that was virtually a 1 man show, and how OKC was in nearly all of those games. I feel the Spurs have the necessary ball movement, discipline, defense, and 3 point shooting to allow them to advance.

Not to mention maybe a little extra motivation for that 2011 series :)

Grizz in 5 or 6 six. This team is extremely disciplined on both ends and can dominate inside. Gasol and Randolph have owned the paint while limiting other bigs. Seems like they improve every game.

I dont know if Grizz or Spurs can beat the Heat, but the series will go longer than last year against OKC. Both teams have significantly better basketball IQ than the thunder, a quality thats instrumental in the finals.

Memphis wasn't even too much for an OKC without their 2nd best player, how are they too much for the Spurs who are better coached, better defensively, and have better 3 point shooters?

I respect the Grizz, and I expect a dog fight, but I don't see how they're "too much" for them.

I don't know what games you were watching but the Grizzles shut down anything the Thunder tried to do offensively and never seem to lose their cool regardless of being down by 12 or down 0-2 in a series. I agree that they will be too much for the Spurs bigs and I see Tony getting shutdown by Conley and the great help defense that the Grizzles have.

The only thing true about that statement is the Spurs are definitely a better 3 point shooting team than them. Come on though with the better defense and coaching. It took KD taking every shot down the stretch in Game 1 for OKC to win, Grizz were in control of every game in that series. You want to talk about struggling against a 6th seed and it took a miracle comeback in game 1 to win against them. Grizz also have all defense defenders guarding the Spurs best positions (pg, sg, and center). Who will guard Zach Randolph and Mike Conley, or stop their drives to the paint?

I was referring to OKC... That's what I mean, KD was the only real guy creating his own shot and OKC was in every game.

Struggling against a 6th seed sure, but that 6th seed was arguably better than OKC without Westbrook. And the Spurs held their own defensively, and shut down 2 of the best shooters in the game.

The Spurs will likely put Green on Conley, who is a very good perimeter defender. Zach Randolph will get his, but Duncan has had tremendous success against Marc Gasol. I know he's the DPOY, but Duncan has had a lot of success against him in recent years.

Grizzlies shut them down sure, but they won by 6,6,6, & 4 points. Yes they were composed and grinded out wins, but OKC was extremely predictable, and frankly relied on Durant to make everything happen. Spurs don't operate that way, as witnessed last night. Their best guys don't have to have big games cause they have role players who can step up.

So if Tony does get shutdown (though I don't see that happening), well fortunately we have other guys who can step up.

While the Spurs have played well against the teams they have played they won't beat the Grizzles. My main reason for believing this wholeheartedly besides the Grizzles are just that good at every aspect of the game is because as the Spurs "Big three" have gotten older and Pop has relied more on the role players to have an impact. This is good during the regular season but the same reason why the Spurs have gotten dominated against teams with better players and game plans in the playoffs is they rely too much on hoping the role players do their jobs(which they do in most games hence the deep runs) but the teams with game plans and the better players are going to be more sound especially with smaller rotations. I may be wrong but unless Manu is gonna play like old Manu Timmy is just too old to do it all game and Tony will be going in against some great help defense on top of the best defending pg in the league.

I'll try again...

Most likely the Spurs will not get swept; I agree with that 100%.. But when talking about Lbj, I consider him his on franchise, and the league backs up that franchise (has noting to do with the HEAT, even though Lbj plays for the HEAT).

So if the script writers/league/stern wants to create a scenario, that has Lbj on top, and everyone else are sub- plot characters... I can see this being the series when they execute that plan.

Elevating Lbj legacy to greater heights by sweeping a team that swept you; by being the 1st player to defeat Timmy in a finals; Lbj would be looked at as the person that ended the Spurs chapter ( but yes, we know that they are old ).

Not saying any of this is going to happen... Just a different out look.

Once again... The HEAT sweeping anyone in the Finals is very unlikely!!!

Contrary to wide-spread internet belief, Stern and other high ranking NBA officials do not dictate who wins and loses NBA games, teams do. Refs are bad but they dont say "Lets have Lebron win this year".

I think it will go 7; Pop is a great coach, but you can't manage the minutes for TD, TP and MG as in regular season. The wear down of the Grizz defense could take its toll, but it is very unlikely to be <6 games.

Unfortunately, that's not true. (It's what the media will have us believe though) The Spurs role players disappeared, and OKC got hot at the right time. Example, Game 4 was very winnable (I believe the Spurs lost by 5) and Perkins & Ibaka shoot a combined 18-20 from the field. (7-9 & 11-11 respectively)

While guys like Green, Leonard, Splitter, etc.. struggled a ton in that series. They really struggled on the big stage, and OKC was able to capitalize with Harden hitting big shots, Fisher, Durant, etc... It's a make or miss league

grizzlies in 5 or 6...also a grizzlies fan...spurs are good but grizzlies just better...duncan will get his points and rebounds and that will keep spurs in the game...parker and ginobili will have tougher time...so will leonard and green...grizzlies play physical basketball and they do great initial contain defense on perimiter and both gasol and zandolph are quick to close in and help...randolph is actually a good man on man defender in post and highly underrated...he has quick feet and most of all he has great uppr body strength to not be pushd around...then u also have defender of year in gasol...duncan will most likely get points from face up jumshots rather than backing them down...parker will get some points in the lane however it will be limited...if u watched warriors play him in the last game, they actually let him penetrate but the defense forced him to either pass or dribble to the other side, basically they just sealed the angles to which he can get the shot off..klay thompson really was an effective defender on both parker and ginobili too, but duncan was consistenly good...grizzlies offense will continue to grind with post-high post with gasol and z-bo...conley will penetrate if spurs defense gets spread or doubles probly...overall if memphis plays like its usual self, they should win...thats my thoughts...sorry it its too long...:)

Of course guys got, older 2 years later.... :cool: That applies to just about everyone in life

Duncan & Parker if you look at their numbers are better than they were in 2011, so your argument is flawed. Leonard is far better than Jefferson (even though you think he's a scrub) Manu is healthy, Splitter is better at his age then Dice was at that point in his career.

My point was, these are both 2 different teams, and using 2011 as a barometer for this year would not be wise.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact it's going to be the Spurs or the Grizzleys in the championship.

But ultimately I think the Grizz will pull it off in 6. They are just a smart physical team from top to bottom. They don't have superstars but there entire starting unit is above average and they play to their strengths and no one player tries to do to much. It's nice to see the player Randolph has become. He used to be that guy that tried to do it all. He's alot better playing this role.

Grizz made a very smart decision in trading gay.

Yeah I used to think that until I did the math. They've been the MEMPHIS Grizzlies far longer than in Vancouver.
Go Grizz !!!

Alot people talk about our lack of offense or shooting and that's because of Tony Allen and Prince but they do other things to win games especially at the end.

Tony Allen is the best defender in NBA plus he is extra physical because refs respect him(like Lebron) he is also avg 6 rebounds a game in the playoffs.

Prince shot is broken I'm not gonna lie but he has such a high IQ that he always makes the right play never turns it over and if you leave him super open he will make you pay.And unlike Gay he moves the ball a big reason why we are better.

This 2 guys have rings and sure the shooting is not there for both of this guys but they do all the other little things on both ends especially when the game is on the line.

The Spurs are the biggest threat to Lebron repeating. Therefore, I believe that David Stern will do everything in his power to make sure they don't go anywhere near his precious Lebron. The Spurs will likely suffer a similar fate to last years horribly one sided game 6 where the Thunder miraculously same back and won the game at the free throw line. Remember, you heard it here first.

We also don't have Sam Young who avg 4 points a game and shot 18% from 3 as our starter in 2011.

We replace Mayo with 3 point shooters and Battier with Prince(pretty much the same).Our Best 3 players got better while the Spurs best 3 players got older.

Not that simple dude

Although I was discouraged,I remind myself that they were butt whipped first game by the Clippers; barely lost the first game to OKC, so game 2 will be interesting. Hollins is no Pop, so all he's got to do is make the second unit for the Spurs less effective as the big 3 will need limited minutes. Hollins also has to pump up the tempo to try and run the Spurs some more. At best; 7 game series and still not ready to call it.
