Leonard's 37 points lead Spurs by Grizzlies 96-82

The Spurs built a 26-point lead in the first half and had to fight off a comeback from never-say-die Memphis, which cut San Antonio's advantage to four points early in the fourth quarter but could never get over the hump.

"Offense is not a big focus", Green said. "And we let them off the hook!" But, Spurs gonna Spur, and they still took a 10 point lead into the final frame, 75-65. He also scored 16 points despite a sore left ankle he hurt in Game 1. First half, we shot 19 shots in the paint and had six free throws.

Conley said the Grizzlies "don't normally say anything about anything".

"It was a very poorly officiated game".

"Kawhi shot more free throws than our whole team", a frustrated Fizdale said during last night's post-game conference.

"Overall, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint and we had 15 free throws for the game". They shot 18 times and had 32 free throws.

After a bad practice, Bennett shared a story about a cat that got trapped in his kitchen and explained to his players that he needs more "dogs" on his team, and fewer cats.

"We don't get the respect that these guys deserve because Mike Conley doesn't go insane, he has class and he just plays the game", Fizdale said.

"Our offense you know went in the toilet due to their great defense, they got into us", said Gregg Popovich. During a almost two-minute rant, he referred to the officiating as "unprofessional" and "unacceptable". My guys dug in that game and earned to be in that game but they did not even give us a chance.

Fizdale's rant backfires, the Grizzlies barely get to the free throw line, and the Spurs rip the hearts out of all Grizzlies fans by stealing game three on the road.

Free throws will be a major focal point in Game 3 on Thursday. It was a frustrating game for the Grizzlies. Vince Carter was assessed a technical foul in the first half after attempting to head-butt Kyle Anderson. San Antonio sealed a 2-0 lead following their win yesterday. It's money he can afford to pay, especially if it means getting Conley and Zach Randolph to the line in Game 3.

NEED TO KNOW: James has won 19 straight opening-round games. They shot 11 times in the paint and had 23 free throws.

If you're in Memphis today, swing by the FedEx Forum around 12:30 to find Mr. Mike Conley there with a LOT of Game 3 playoff tickets in hand.
