Grizzlies shock top seeded Spurs The Memphis Grizzlies made history today by winning their first playoff game in franchise history by shocking top seeded San Antonio Spurs 101-98.  It was a back and forth game until Shane Battier hit a clutch 3 pointer with 23.9 seconds left to put the Grizzlies up by 3 to seal the win.  Zach Randolph (25 pts) and Marc Gasol (24 pts) were the stars of the game combining for 49 points. The Spurs were without Manu Ginobili and one can say that was the difference of the game but the Grizzlies were also without their star player as well, Rudy Gay. Game 2 will be played Wednesday in San Antonio.  Are the Grizzlies a true threat to the Spurs?  I think they are and will win the series.
