^ I hope for more competitive games now

Yeah grizz always struggle out the gate. It's like they are measuring the opponents and finding out their gameplan. With that said grizz played their worst game of the playoffs while the spurs played arguably their best. It should be much more competitive

05-21-2013, 08:08 PM
Randolph has to play a lot better

Hangtime
05-21-2013, 08:17 PM
One thing about the Spurs, they always let you back in the game even with one of your guys like Zbo struggling.

The Grizz were good enough to hang around and cut that lead to 6 and got momentum they just couldn't sustain it by hitting the open shots and defensive tenacity and rebounding they did well in the 3rd qtr. I know Zbo will play much better but to me Conley is the key to the Grizz success.

MrfadeawayJB
05-21-2013, 08:35 PM
Randolph has to play a lot better

Neat stat:

In ZBO's playoff career, he averages 26 pt and 11 reb after scoring in single digits

Joshtd1
05-21-2013, 08:39 PM
Expect the Spurs to take care of business and go up 2-0. I don't expect Z-Bo to only score 2 points again, but also don't expect Tim to only score 6 tonight. Ever since they beat the Spurs in 2011, the teams have changed a bit and I don't think the Grizz match up as well as they did before. Just my opinion though

I see Randolph being too aggressive and getting in foul trouble, taking himself outta the game that way. Spurs win by 10

05-21-2013, 09:17 PM
An awful start for the Grizzlies.... they might get blown out this series... 0-3 3 turnovers in under 4 minutes.

kdspurman
05-21-2013, 09:18 PM
All spurs points have come from within the paint. They're confusing the Grizz and keeping them on their toes. Totally different than Game 1

Not a travel. I watched in slow mo he took a gather step then two more.

kdspurman
05-21-2013, 09:24 PM
Spurs defended Pau & Dwight very similarly to how they are Z-Bo. It's not out of the question that he'll continue to struggle, their game plan is to take him out of this series.

mzgrizz
05-21-2013, 09:24 PM
Come on ZBo
Need some fancy footwork to escape Diaw's clutches !!

Yeah but everyone does that pretty much.

kdspurman
05-21-2013, 09:28 PM
Grizz just struggling to score in the half court sets. Missing some makeable shots however, but there is no flow. The inability to get Z-Bo involved in the offense is making them struggle.

Missed Layups = spur fast breaks smh

Joshtd1
05-21-2013, 09:29 PM
I just feel for the Grizz to have a chance win, Gasol and Z-Bo have to score 50 combined since those are the main scoring threats. Even though they are an elite defensive team, it's just hard for me to imagine they have the offense (outside of their 2 bigs) to keep up. Unless Bayless and Conley have amazing games as well.

kdspurman
05-21-2013, 09:30 PM
I realize that but he does it so much more than most. No wonder Parker's always open

Well that's not why Parker's always open lol.. But the moving screen is hardly ever called. I don't know what's moving and what isn't anymore. It's worse than the carry call or non-call rather.

Blitzbolt
05-21-2013, 09:30 PM
Teams always jump us early because it takes a while for our bigs to get going and the Spurs are making us pay.

That last block was naaasttyy

zn23
05-21-2013, 09:38 PM
Marc Gasol had a beast 1st quarter. 5 rebounds, 3 blocks, 4 points....

Now it's time for Randolph to step up, because I don't think the Grizz can take Gasol out of the game....

Blitzbolt
05-21-2013, 09:39 PM
Way better the Defense is here now we have to find some offense.

MrfadeawayJB
05-21-2013, 09:39 PM
Grizz pace so far

MrfadeawayJB
05-21-2013, 09:40 PM
In late clock situations (under 5 sec) grizz should switch all p&r action

zn23
05-21-2013, 09:41 PM
Gasol played that entire first quarter, so he's going to have to come off... This is the perfect time for the Spurs to build their lead UNLESS Randolph steps it up.

Randolph looks completely lost out there, on offense and on defense.

MrfadeawayJB
05-21-2013, 09:47 PM
What happened to ZBo

Double team has him playing cautious

sunsfan88
05-21-2013, 09:48 PM
Z-Bo needs to go sit on the bench and let someone else take his spot on the floor if he truly is a team player and if he wants to win. Lionel Hollins may be stupid to realize that Randolph is nothing but a liability against SAS so someone needs to get smart.

Blitzbolt
05-21-2013, 09:48 PM
Yea we need to keep it going ZBO will figure it out at some point they are fronting him high daring all the others to do something.

kdspurman
05-21-2013, 09:49 PM
Spurs have had this game plan ready since 2011 (according to Duncan) They're going to try and take Z-Bo out of it and make others beat you. Bayless & Quincy could see more time than Prince & Allen in all honesty.

MrfadeawayJB
05-21-2013, 09:49 PM

Makes me laugh that Gasol got 2nd team all defense along with TD. Take out Chandler and Ibaka and replace it with them two.

kdspurman
05-21-2013, 10:04 PM
There's been missed calls on both ends, Splitter has gotten blatantly hacked by Gasol 2x and nothing was called, Parker a few times in the lane, etc... Those were bad calls on Conley & Gasol. Gasol likely should have had 2 anyway, so not the worst thing.

WRONG. Marc Gasol is. If Gasol was not playing, the Spurs would have a field day driving in every play with sorry Zach Randolph trying to protect the paint with whoever else backup big man the Grizz have.

They could never really shoot. Conley out on cheap fouls is the back breaker

How did they get to the WCFs then? Defense carried them this far? I thought it would be impossible to make it to the WCFs with such a horrendous offense.

IMO worst offense ever to make it to the Conference Finals.

I honestly don't think they will come back. They are shooting 26%, getting no contribution from Zach Randolph.

Zach Randolph's career may be over after this. Every team just has to take note on how the Spurs are fronting Randolph and then BOOM he's a non factor.

I'm actually surprised the Grizz haven't tried running their offense more with Gasol on the block instead of Z-bo. Clearly Gasol is the more skilled high post player, but he has nice touch around the basket. And he's huge

Team defense. Gasol is good but even without him put in Ed Davis we are still a top 10 defensive unit

Yea I have been wondering that too. This is probably the reason why Lionel Hollins still hasn't got a contract extension yet. He's not as good as I thought he was.

In the other GD thread I posted that Hollins would definitely get a contract extension, but I'll eat my words now. I don't think he will if Girzz continue playing like this.

He can add a more "consistent" mid-range shot. I know he can hit it, but people dare him to. Kind of like how Duncan & Garnett are capable to knock it down.

sunsfan88

Yea Grizzlies are playing like crap but they have gotten no help from the refs. A lot of SAS bias in officiating.

Kobe Bryant having an impact on the playoffs even with his injury. When he called Matt Bonner the Red Mamba, he actually gave Matty a big pair of balls to be used during the playoffs.

When Tony Parker has 10 or more assists, the Spurs are nearly unbeatable. He already has 9 at the half I think?

Spurs defense is so underrated. With Splitter on the Court, we are a defensive JUGGERNAUT!

Thing about Duncan and Garnett is that they don't rely on the jump shot. They still have so much tricks up their sleeve even if their jumper isn't falling.

Also, Duncan and Garnett will make it up on defense and rebounding if they suck on offense. Z-Bo can't. He's losing his cool and is now hurting the team.

That's true, improving on defense would be a good start. He's on the right team to do it though.

But come Saturday, he could get Duncan in early foul trouble and get it going with the right matchup (though Bonner & Diaw have defended him well too) Still a lot of ball left for him to get something going.

Eh it isn't even Duncan that's stopping Z-Bo from playing well its the whole Spurs team. They know exactly when to double and how to front the post against him.

Even if Duncan gets in foul trouble, Popovich will something out of his butt and it will work. He's just that good.
