NBA Western Conference Finals, Game 1: Spurs blow out Grizzlies, the GIF recap

The Spurs beat down the Grizzlies. Here's how it happened, in GIFs!

The San Antonio Spurs took a 1-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals Sunday afternoon with a 103-85 spanking of the Memphis Grizzlies. The Spurs took a huge lead in the first half thanks to three 3-pointers from Matt Bonner and stifling defense on Zach Randolph. It didn't matter to Gregg Popovich, who was steamed over a carry call. He was like "Ah, forget about it, we're winning by so many points!"

The Grizzlies climbed back in to within 10 points, but Randolph wasn't performing any better. The Grizzlies' leading scorer finished 1-8 with two points. Tony Allen will also see his pocketbook a little lighter, probably, after this maneuver.

In the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies just found themselves blown out of the water. The Spurs shot a blazing 14-29 from three-point range, and that was more than enough to keep the Grizzlies at bay without a helpful Randolph.
