From sportsman to businessman, Stern never far from the NBA

Mike Conley showed why he landed the richest contract in National Basketball Association history as he sparked the Memphis Grizzlies to a thrilling playoff series-levelling win over Patty Mills' San Antonio Spurs.

The Memphis Grizzlies scored same 82 points in the last two games, the first two games of the series. That marked the first time Parker did not record a point or assist in the 1,345 games he has played at least 15 minutes (regular season and playoffs) in his career. There wasn't a vibe in the building other than that, having finally lost a game, the Spurs weren't going to be playing around anymore in Game 4. "You got to battle, and you're going to try to do your work early and just battle him the whole game".

On the other hand, if the Spurs figure things out in a meaningful way, the Grizzlies could be in trouble, because as I said they don't have any more tricks up their sleeves. So we had to match them, or otherwise we were going to get pummeled. He rallied the Spurs by scoring the last 16 points of regulation, but missed a 21-footer short of the rim with James Ennis defending him just before the buzzer ending regulation.

Free Throw Efficiency: The Spurs, who were phenomenal in the first two games, shot 57.1% from the free throw line in game three, missing 12 possible free throws. FOX Sports GO, which can be accessed through the Official Spurs Mobile App, presented by BBVA Compass, will also stream all FSSW games. They would lead to an immediate timeout by Pop with 11:07 still left in the third; when the telecast resumed, all five starters had been benched. If you are, spoiler alert-you won Saturday's game in overtime after Marc Gasol hit a runner in the lane, and the series is now tied 2-2, which is suddenly incredible news for anyone who loves basketball.

Tony Parker, who had seemed so rejuvenated in the first two games of the series, was held scoreless in game three.


Taking a look at some of the key players for Memphis in that series makes it abundantly clear just how overmatched the Grizzlies were in 2016.

The Grizzlies outscored the Silver and Black 31-17 in the third quarter to take an 81-63 lead into the final period.

Then the Grizzlies matched his intensity on the court.

Leonard finished with 24 points combined in the fourth quarter and overtime in a thrilling game that featured six lead changes and seven ties in the fourth and overtime.

But Leonard's brilliant performance was in vain as Mike Conley led Memphis with 35 points and had nine rebounds and eight assists.


After catching the ball on the left wing with Memphis up 20 and well on its way to cutting the Spurs' series lead to 2-1, Selden looked to throw an entry pass to Randolph before realizing that would be a bad idea.

Barnes started all four playoff games and scored 17 points in Game 3. He scored 11 points in the second quarter and even had a rare dunk. Fouled Out-None. Rebounds-San Antonio 37 (P.Gasol 11), Memphis 51 (M.Gasol 12).

Game 4 is Saturday night here at 7 p.m.

The Bucks' superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was restricted to 14 points by the Raptors while Tony Snell led the home team with 19 points and Greg Monroe added 14 points.
