Grizzlies coach Fizdale fined $30000 for refs tirade

Conley shouldn't be playing that poorly in a big playoff game against an opposing point guard who's actually washed up. Leonard is a combined 17-of-19 against them, with 21 of his 28 free throw attempts coming from against that quartet.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Cleveland's free-throw shooting. Kawhi has become elite at getting to the line, finishing 11th in the league in free throw attempts per game in the regular season. I'm not a numbers guy, but that doesn't seem to add up. "They forced us into some tough situations in that third quarter and broke the game open". The Spurs shot 52.6% from beyond the arc, while the Grizzlies shot 35.0%. Fizdale had a right to voice his frustrations - their defensive coverage on Leonard led to way too many free throws, and they weren't being rewarded on the other end as well. "First half we had 19 shots in the paint and had six free throws". Explain it to me! "I thought we got better as the game went on".

NOTES: Spurs F/C Pau Gasol played 476 games for the Grizzlies from 2001-08, winning the 2001-02 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and becoming the franchise's first-ever All-Star (2006).

It's hard to decide if "they not gonna rook us" or "take that for data" is the more iconic line. They did a great job, and we stopped moving the ball. That's unacceptable. That was unprofessional. "My guys dug in that game and earned the right to be in that game - and they did not even give us a chance", Fizdale told journalists.

Fizdale slammed the table as he walked away from the podium after that tirade after less than two minutes answering questions.

Kylie has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians for about a decade, but she didn't really become a big star until recently. And many are interpreting Kylie's new show as the network's of showing its faith in the family's "second generation".

I didn't expect San Antonio to do what it did in Game 1 given their struggles down the stretch, but clearly the Spurs popped into playoff mode.

And once things went south for the Grizzlies, they never found their usual ability to stem the negative flow. The first game between the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs had the final result score of Spurs win, 111-82. I'd much rather have an 18-point lead than not have a lead at all. When Memphis made their run to close the gap, they played their best defense all series - and then Kawhi came in. Vince Carter drew a technical foul, trying to bring some energy to the Grizzlies after a stagnant second quarter.

Adding to Fizdale's consternation was the fact that Memphis rallied from a 26-point deficit in the second half and had an opportunity to win after a 29-point blowout in Game 1.

Fizdale surely has a fine headed his way.
