MEM 105 SA 94; Grizzlies Win At Home

2016-2017 nba playoffs, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, tim duncan, tony parker, Vince Carter, Zach Randolph
Vince Carter dunks in the 3q.

I wasn’t able to watch the game where Tony Parker was said to have relived his old ways, so I was looking forward to something like that coming into this game. So when I caught up in the 3q I was getting a little disappointed noticing he had only scored a point while¬†the rest of his team was playing from behind.

On the other side, Kobe needs help but it is not forthcoming with Radmanovic missing open 3s and Walton fumbling the ball away after a clear possession on a jumpball against Williams and Gasol in the dying minutes.
