San Antonio vs. Memphis,

Score: 104 - 93
Point Spread: +5/-102 San Antonio
Today's winner is San Antonio over Memphis. This is my Western Conference Finals Game of the Year.
Memphis has dug themselves into a hole, losing both Games 1 and 2 in this series. Tony Parker had 15 points and 18 Assists in game 2. And that was with playing in pain. The three-day break has drastically improved the Guards injured calf. Danny Green has been deadly beyond the arc. And Tim Duncan has been a defensive nightmare for the Grizzlies. Zach Randolph had just four points through the first six quarters of this round. He and Gasol are ice-cold, combining for a dismal 18 of 54 shooting from the field vs. San Antonio here. The Spurs have made 23 from 3-point land this series. They are killing Memphis from both the perimeter and in the paint. In their six meetings this season, the Spurs won 4 SU and dropped the two losses by a combined 5 points. Memphis is a defense-oriented team therefore their offense does not possess the explosiveness that is needed to win at this stage. The Spurs are 7-3 ATS their L10 games played vs. the Grizzlies and 4-1 ATS their L5 games played on the road. Take San Antonio. Thank you.
