The San Antonio Spurs defeat the Memphis Grizzlies, taking a 2-0 lead in series

Last night marked Game 2 between the Memphis Grizzlies and the San Antonio Spurs in their Playoffs series.  Game 1 was a blow out as the Spurs defeated the Grizzlies, 111-82 in San Antonio.  In that game, Kawhi Leonard scored thirty-two points, pulled down three rebounds and dished out five assists.  Marc Gasol scored thirty-two points, pulled down five rebounds and dished out two assists.  The San Antonio Spurs would look to take a 2-0 lead in Texas as they host the Grizzlies again.

The San Antonio Spurs would start the game off right as two-time All-Star, Kawhi Leonard, drops ten points, shooting 75% from the field.  LaMarcus Aldridge would help out as he puts up five points, which would mainly come from the free-throw line.  On the other end, Mike Conley would earn eight points which would contain one 3-pointer but it would be the home team that ended the first quarter with a 29 to 16 lead.  In the second period, Leonard would collect eight more points, only shooting 33% from the field.  The 2003-2004 Most Improved Player, Zach Randolph, would come off the bench to drop eight points for the Tennessee team.  Conley would chalk up six points, which contained one 3-pointer but the Spurs went into halftime with a huge 56-37 advantage.  Memphis would go on a 28 to 19 run in the third quarter as Randolph collects six more points and grabs down two rebounds.  The first-round pick in the 1998 draft, Vince Carter, would shoot 66% on the court, collecting five points which included one 3-pointer.  Mike Conley would score five points himself, which held one 3-pointer.  Former Pelicans player, James Ennis, would score five points, too, but his would all come from the free-throw line.  Meanwhile, Kawhi Leonard would drop nine points while Pau Gasol would settle for five points, giving the home team a 75-65 lead at the end of the third.  San Antonio would close things out in the last period, thanks to Kawhi Leonard, who continues to put on a scoring display, dropping ten more points.  The San Antonio Spurs would defeat the Memphis Grizzlies with a 96 to 82 win, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.  Kawhi Leonard would finish with thirty-seven points (his new Playoff career-high), eleven rebounds and two assists.  Mike Conley would end up with twenty-four points, one rebound and eight assists.
