This sequence pretty much sums up last night’s Memphis/San Antonio game, and the series as a whole. Memphis is too big, too strong and too fast for the aging Spurs and it is exemplified in this sequence where Darrell Arthur hammers a Tony Parker shot and then beats every Spur down the floor for an easy alley-oop from O.J. Mayo.
Can the Spurs come back from this? They look outmatched in every single aspect of the series, and the young Grizz have that swagger going right now. Clearly though, the most difficult thing that this Memphis team will ever have to do is close out Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. They say that the last game is the hardest to get in any playoff series. We can’t imagine this veteran Spurs team going away quietly, especially since they all know this could be their last real run at any kind of title…
Can the Spurs come back and win this series?
