48MoH TV Postgame: Spurs beat Grizzlies
The San Antonio Spurs kicked off their latest Rodeo Road Trip with a win over the Memphis Grizzlies. This game could’ve been a blowout for the silver and black, but a big third quarter from the Grizzlies got Memphis back in the game. The Spurs eventually won 89-84 thanks to 21 points from Tony Parker and a big 19 point, 17 rebound and five block night from Tim Duncan.
On our 48MoH TV postgame show, Tim Varner and I broke down a few of the performances from the night including those of Parker, Duncan, Tiago Splitter and Danny Green. We took a few questions from the audience and talked about how well the Spurs’ defense has played over the last several games. We also discussed which player has been more important to the Spurs’ success the last few games, Duncan or Parker.
We closed out the night by looking at my posters hanging in the background of my office (FYI, Todd Slater is the poster artist who did the Wu-Tang Clan poster behind me) and played another round of Name That Narrative. Varner thinks the story will be about the Spurs’ current winning streak. I’m leaning towards something about the Spurs opening up another Rodeo Road Trip, in which San Antonio has never had a losing record, with a win. We’ll see who’s right.
