NBA Playoffs: Ranking Each First Round Match-Up
8.) (7) Memphis Grizzlies vs. (2) San Antonio Spurs
What? No Warriors or Cavaliers as the least competitive/fun series to watch?
The Memphis Grizzlies could have the least talented roster headed into the playoffs but had such a good record prior to big injuries to withstand a massive fall out of the playoffs. If the season was just a few weeks longer, we would probably be looking at Utah in the postseason.
Without Marc Gasol or Mike Conley against the second best team in the league (and one of the greatest teams of all time), the Grizzlies shot at winning a game in this series is very slim at best. Being led by Lance Stephenson and Matt Barnes, Memphis looks to ride their “grit & grind” play style right out of the postseason.
