Memphis came roaring out of halftime outscoring 30-15 on their way to a 78-65 lead. Mike Conley has had a strong game with 15 points and four assists. Zach Randolph is also in double figures with 11 points and eight rebounds. Memphis turned up the pressure on the Spurs forcing seven turnovers in the quarter which got the Grizzlies running and in a good rhythm.
The Spurs backcourt has been good. Tony Parker has 23 points while Manu Ginobli has 12. However, San Antonio hasn't gotten much from its frontcourt as Richard Jefferson, Tim Duncan, and Antonio McDyess have combined for 10 points. Jefferson is scoreless in 18 minutes of action. The Spurs desperately need to take care of the ball if they are going to contain the much more athletic Grizzlies.
