Bears can shoot.
The upstart Memphis Grizzlies continued their inspired postseason run last night, outdueling and ultimately shooting down the Spurs, 104-86, to grab a 3-1 series lead. The 18-point blowout saw five Grizzlies score in double figures and everyone on the team get at least one bucket except backup center Hamed Haddadi. Zach Randolph (Nike Air Max Fly By) put up 11, 9, 3 and 2, Mike Conley (adidas Crazy Light) added 15 and 7, and O.J. Mayo (Nike Hyperdunk 2010) sparked off the bench with 11, including a slashing, weak-side slam midway through the 2nd quarter. Tony Parker (Nike Zoom Brave IV) did what he could for the Spurs with 23 points but it didn’t make enough of a dent to matter. The Grizz can close out the Spurs on Wednesday, which would mark the first 8-seed-over-1-seed upset since the “We Believe” Warriors upended the Mavs in 2007.
In Denver, the Nuggs staved off elimination by edging the Thunder, 104-101. Ty Lawson, in Navy/Yellow Nike Zoom Uptempo V‘s, led the Nuggets with 27 points, while Danilo Gallinari gave the Reebok Tempo HexRide more shine with an 18, 6, 4, 1 statline. OKC’s Kevin Durant laced up his Black/White-Team Orange-Cool Grey Nike Zoom KD III‘s again for 31 points, Russell Westbrook threw in 30 in his Nike Zoom Hyperfuse PE, and Serge Ibaka added 13 points, 14 rebounds and 5 blocks in the adidas adiPure.
