Alternative Wednesday: San Antonio Spurs Prove to be “Radioactive” for Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been here before. In the opening round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs they trailed the Los Angeles Clippers by two games, then won four straight. Fast forward to the Western Conference Finals and the Grizzlies trail the San Antonio Spurs two games to none.

There is a difference here. The Spurs are a group of battle tested veterans who know what it takes to win games. They have championship rings and battle scars, MVP’s and one of the best coaches the game has ever seen.

For Memphis, this has to be discouraging. They are a younger and more athletic team. They play a slow, physical game that should wear down the older Spurs. Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, and Mike Conley SHOULD be able to push their way to the NBA Finals.

How has it been so easy for San Antonio to grab a quick 2-0 lead over the Grizzlies? Simple time time travel should be able to give everyone the answer. The Spurs are playing themselves from a decade ago.

It is simply a “Radioactive” situation for the Memphis Grizzlies. There is no way they can win this battle…unless they look into the future for the winning game plan.
