San Antonio seized a 2-0 series lead over the Memphis Grizzlies with a 96-82 victory in the AT&T Center. The San Antonio Spurs are one of the legitimate obstacles standing in the way of an NBA Finals rubber match between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, and they proved why Monday. Kawhi Leonard led the way for the victors with 37 http://www.authenticramsofficialshop.co ... ersey.html points and 11 rebounds, but Tony Parker turned back the clock as part of the supporting cast. The Spurs won Game 1 by 29 points and appeared well on their way to another blowout win when they extended their lead to 26 points Monday, but Memphis battled back and made it respectable behind 24 points from Mike Conley and Zach Randolph's double-double (18 points and 10 boards). SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs showcased a couple of key elements that eluded them in their Western Conference semifinal loss last season, opening up the playoffs Saturday with a 111-82 thumping of the seventh-seeded Memphis Grizzlies. Kawhi Leonard matched a career postseason high with 32 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge contributed 20. Point guard Tony Parker had 18 points in somewhat of a resurgent outing, as a trio of Spurs defenders stifled leading Grizzlies scorer Mike Conley so significantly, the point guard knocked down his final shot with 8:40 left in the opening half, despite playing a hefty 30 minutes. At times during their 4-2 series loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, the Spurs couldn't get a bucket if it didn't come from Leonard http://www.officialrockieshop.com/authe ... ersey.html. The bench, which often carried the club through its historic 67-win campaign, flat-lined at inopportune times, while Parker played up and down and left pundits wondering whether it was time for the Spurs to go in another direction at the position. Tony Parker answered doubters with 18 points and a solid night on defense as the Spurs opened their first-round series against the Grizzlies with a convincing victory. Soobum Im/USA TODAY Sports The Spurs showcased the opposite of all that against the Grizzlies, leading to Parker, 34, having to answer questions about whether he'd turned back the hands of time. Parker nailed both of his corner 3-pointers, hitting 8 of 13 shots from the field for his 18 points -- the majority coming on aggressive drives to the basket. San Antonio's bench, meanwhile, outscored Memphis' reserves 39-25, as Pau Gasol, Patty Mills and Davis Bertans connected on six of their combined seven attempts from deep. Memphis opened on fire, taking a 28-15 lead at the 2:29 mark, but San Antonio reeled that in like a prized catch. The Grizzlies scored 30 points in the opening quarter, but it would take them almost 20 minutes to score an additional 30. San Antonio, meanwhile, outscored the Grizzlies by 42 points over the next two quarters, including a 19-0 run between the third and the fourth. The Spurs Cody Wichmann Womens Jersey made 8 of 10 shots during that stretch, as Leonard hit 3-of-3 for seven points and Parker added four more points. San Antonio also forced three turnovers during that span resulting in five points as Memphis went 0 of 7. Conley started the game hitting 5 of 6 shots but missed his final eight. "I started to get a rhythm, tried to pressure Conley in the first half and tried to make it hard on him, tried to stay in front of him," Parker said. "So it definitely got my legs going. Offensively, I was aggressive." Marc Gasol, who led Memphis with 32 points, seemed to be the only Grizzly capable of knocking down the difficult shots. Gasol connected on 10 of 17 contested shots for 22 points, and the rest of his teammates finished 10-of-47 for 22 points. Popovich now owns 15 career 25-point wins in the postseason, which falls one short of Phil Jackson for the most in NBA history. The Spurs are now 29-5 under Popovich in playoff series when they take a 1-0 series lead. "I thought we did a good job defensively," Popovich said. "I thought they made a couple of tough shots. We made a couple mistakes. They took advantage of it. The best part was the team keeping their composure, not going off in different directions, and just trying to do what we planned to do execution-wise at both ends. I thought we got better as the game went on." SAN ANTONIO -- Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale had some scathing criticism of the officials following his team's 96-82 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Monday night. "It's unfortunate that I've got a guy like [point guard] Mike Conley that in his whole career has got zero technical fouls and just cannot seem to get the proper respect from the officials that he deserves," Fizdale said after Memphis fell to a 2-0 series deficit. "It was a very poorly officiated basketball game." Despite the furious comeback, Memphis http://www.officialrockieshop.com/authe ... ersey.html fell short. Kawhi Leonard finished the game hitting 19-of-19 from the free throw line to become the first player since Dirk Nowitzki in 2011 to hit 19 or more in a row from the charity stripe in the playoffs. The Grizzlies overcame a 19-point halftime deficit (which was as large as 26 in the second quarter) to pull to within four points at the 10:08 mark of the fourth quarter. "Zach Randolph, the most rugged guy in the game, had zero free throws," Fizdale said as he stared down at the box score from Monday's game. "But somehow, Kawhi Leonard had 19 free throws. First half, we shot 19 shots in the paint, and we had six free throws. They shot 11 times in the paint, and they had 23 free throws. I'm not a numbers guy, but that doesn't seem to add up. Overall, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint. We had 15 free throws for the game. They shot 18 times in the paint and had 32 free throws. Kawhi shot more free throws than our whole team. Explain it to me." Given the championship pedigrees of the Spurs and legendary coach Gregg Popovich, along with Memphis' relative lack of postseason success, Fizdale doesn't believe the officials gave his team proper respect on calls. Officials whistled Memphis for a total of 22 fouls, compared to 13 for the Spurs. "Yeah. You see two different teams here," Conley http://www.authenticmetshop.com/authent ... ersey.html said. "The Spurs are champions. They've won many times. They've done a lot of great things. We haven't earned that yet. We have to get to that mountaintop. And we understand that. I understand that. That's why I'm not going to complain about it. I'm just going to keep my head down, keep focused, try to play through it the best I can and keep my teammates from letting it affect them mentally."
