NBA Playoffs schedule 2013: Grizzlies host Spurs in Game 3

Ronald Martinez

Memphis looks to come back from an 0-2 deficit as the Western Conference Finals comes to Beale Street.

The San Antonio Spurs take their 2-0 series lead against the Memphis Grizzlies on the road as they try to push the Grizzlies to the brink of elimination Saturday. After a tight Game 2 that went to overtime, set up in part by Tony Allen's flopping with 26 seconds left on the clock, Game 3 tips off at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.

In the Grizzlies' favor is the fact that they have yet to lose at home through the playoffs. The Spurs, however, used their three days off since Game 2 to rest up. Tony Parker underwent an MRI on his bruised calf, which he suffered during the Western Conference semifinals, and all signs point to a timely recovery. In fact, Parker believes he'll turn a corner soon and will be fine on Saturday, reports Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News:

"Everything is fine," Parker told McDonald. "They (doctors) still see a lot of blood. The size is going down. I feel like I'm turning the corner. I feel like I'll be fine for Saturday."
