San Antonio Spurs: Player Grades in Win Over Memphis Grizzlies
By Jay Desai
The San Antonio Spurs rebounded from their Wednesday 95-93 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, defeating the Memphis Grizzlies 107-101 on Friday night.
The Spurs came out like gangbusters, racing to a 58-46 lead at the half. The Grizzlies ended up climbing back into the game, cutting the lead down to four at one point in the fourth quarter, but ultimately fell short in their comeback effort.
While the win was great for San Antonio, there was some bad news around it. The Spurs lost yet another player to injury. This time it was Tony Parker going down with a mild hamstring strain.
Although the mood was dampened because of the injury, Tim Duncan did his best to better it by having possibly one of his top performances of the season. Duncan showed up big time in this win, registering his fourth career triple-double with 14 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists.
For the Grizzlies, it was all about the efforts of Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. Conley finished with a 23 point, 10 assist double-double while Gasol finished with a 28 point, 12 rebound double-double.
