By the Numbers: Spurs muzzle Grizzlies

New, comments

The Spurs easily handled a reeling Memphis squad in their first taste of playoff action. Kawhi Leonard dominated on both sides of the ball, highlighting his claim to his 2nd consecutive DPOY nod.

Spurs 106, Grizzlies 74 - Apr 17, '16

Here's a look at the numbers from San Antonio's easy victory over a devastated Memphis squad.

  • Fantastic performance from Kawhi Leonard, who notched 20 points on 13 shots and 7 stocks in a virtuoso performance just hours ahead of his DPOY coronation. Well deserved, Whi.
  • Tony Parker had a great outing with 15 points and 6 assists in just 21 minutes. He was able to slice through the paint and finish at the rim like the Tony of old, a welcome sight for a team that will need production from their starting PG in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
  • Patty's shot was falling, and Danny Green hit the only 3 he took (in 20 minutes of play, bizarrely), a welcome sight considering their struggles of late. When both (or even just one!) of those guys are connecting from deep, the Spurs offense hits another gear.
  • Kawhi went 3-6 from downtown, another welcome sight as he looks to recalibrate after an awful March/April from deep. Needless to say, a dialed-in Kawhi takes the Spurs offense to even greater heights. 
  • Aldridge had a solid 17 points, 4 boards and 2 blocks. His rejection of Zach Randolph at the rim was beautiful to behold.
  • The Spurs as a team blocked 9 shots, erasing 11% of Memphis' total field goal attempts and contributing to a 37.7% 2-point FG percentage. 
The Spurs look to overwhelm Memphis once more on Tuesday. GSG.
