For two full quarters it looked like it’s going down the wire again. The team that will hit the big shots and make the stops in the waning moments will win it again. Sadly for the San Antonio Spurs it weren’t. They Spurs opened the playoffs looking to win another title. Now, they’re just hoping to force a second trip to Memphis by winning Game 5 on Wednesday in San Antonio. If they want to stay alive, they have to win three straight games and take it one game at a time. After leading 50-48 at the half, things went awry in the 3rd quarter. The Grizzlies went on to 14-0 blast to start the second half and never looked back. For the first time this series, the game did not go down to the final possession because Memphis wouldn’t let it. During the first 24 minutes, Tony Parker seems determined to lead the Spurs to victory scoring 19 points in the first two quarters but ended with 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting, scoring just four points after halftime and committed seven of the Spurs’ 17 turnovers. For the first time in the series, coach Gregg Popovich elected to use Brazilian big man Tiago Splitter and he responded in a positive way scoring 10 points and grabbing nine rebounds. Still, the Spurs suffered their most lopsided defeat in the playoffs. After a blazing 3rd quarter start, Memphis smelled blood and went for the kill.
