Memphis Grizzlies level National Basketball Association series with San Antonio Spurs


Leonard scored the Spurs' last 16 points in the fourth quarter and his fade-away jumper with 12 seconds left in regulation gave San Antonio a 96-94 lead. Conley finished the game with 35 points, nine rebounds and eight assists while shooting 56.5 percent from the field and 50 percent from three.

While Gasol had a double-double in Game 4 with 16 points and 12 rebounds, he also made a team-high seven turnovers.

In overtime, Kawhi did his best to carry the Spurs to the win with eight points in the overtime period, but Conley's Grizzlies outlasted Leonard's furious effort for the win.

DeMar DeRozan scored 33 points, and the visiting Toronto Raptors beat the Milwaukee Bucks 87-76 in a defensive slugfest on Saturday to tie their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series at two games apiece.

The series shifts back to San Antonio for a pivotal Game 5 on Tuesday, and Leonard is less focused on the points he has piled up than he is on shoring up the team's defense. "I've tried everything and the guy's just.", Fizdale said, pausing to release a dramatic sigh.

As relentless as Leonard has been, Mike Conley has been every bit his equal after a disappointing Game 1.

Memphis was able to build a double-digit lead after their bench held the fort for their stars to return rested in the fourth quarter, but an 11-0 Spurs run largely engineered by Leonard set the stage for the two teams trading haymaker after haymaker.

Days ago, it appeared as if Memphis may not make a Game 5 trip back to San Antonio.

"We've played against Zach 14 hundred and 73 times", Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said, adding that Randolph has always been a heck of a player so "it's not a whole lot different".

The Spurs, with a 2-1 series lead, have a veteran option at center.

The cornerback's attorney, Kevin Spellacy, told WOIO-TV in Cleveland described the allegations as "ludicrous and ridiculous". The woman said Conley wouldn't take his sunglasses off and had an Ohio State tattoo on his left forearm.

Centre Maker again started for the Bucks and he scored seven points to go with four rebounds and two assists while Dellavedova had two points, two rebounds and three assists off the bench.

The Spurs remain behind the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers in odds to win the NBA Finals in June. "He really changed the game and hopefully changed the series and will give us some confidence".

Griffin's injury marks another playoff blow to a franchise that has dealt with a series of bad luck in recent years.

Their division rivals are the ones most familiar to their game, and given the Spurs struggles to create anything aside of Leonard, it clearly translates to Grizzlies staying more competitive than they should be. He averaged 15 points through the first two games.

One thing you will never see is the Grizzlies do is quit, their Grit N' Grind motto perfectly exemplifies Memphis.
