2013 NBA Playoffs, May 21: San Antonio Spurs Take 2-0 Series Lead

The Chicago Bulls may be out of the NBA playoffs, but that doesn’t mean the NBA is over entirely. Here’s what happened last night.

Down 1-0 in the Western Conference Finals, the Memphis Grizzlies went into game two against the San Antonio Spurs knowing a loss would put them in a difficult hole to climb out of. Of course, they trailed by double-digits for much of the second half, so that was bad.

However, the Grizzlies rallied from 18 down to force overtime. They pounded San Antonio inside and on the glass, overcoming a dismal shooting night along the way.

Of course, it wasn’t meant to be. San Antonio took the lead in overtime and led by 3 points with 10 seconds remaining after Tony Parker split a pair of free throws. Unfortunately for the visitors, Jerryd Bayless bricked a three on the ensuing possession, and Cory Joseph split his own pair of free throws to put the game away.

Here’s how Ricky O’Donnell of Blog-A-Bull put it:

(Don’t believe him? Here’s Boozer, and here’s Bayless. Or is it the other way around?)
