Memphis Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace told Yahoo Sports he expects the NBA will validate his franchise's protested victory over the Sacramento Kings, "regardless of the media campaign being waged." In the aftermath of the Grizzlies' 111-110 victory on Thursday night, Sacramento filed a protest with the league office insisting Courtney Lee's buzzer-beating shot should've been disallowed. The Kings maintain an inbounds pass to Lee had been tipped and the game clock should've run out before Lee could've caught and scored the basket. Yahoo! Sports

The Knicks’ main free-agent target, Marc Gasol, is also being targeted as a possible replacement to Tim Duncan assuming Ol’ Man Riverwalk retires this summer. The Knicks will be players for the Memphis center mainly because of the first three rules of real estate — location, location, location — and because Gasol is familiar with both Jackson and Derek Fisher since older brother Pau spent the best years of his career with the Lakers.

The Sacramento Kings believe they should have beaten the Memphis Grizzlies last Thursday. More than that, the Kings believe they did beat the Grizzlies last Thursday. They have filed an official protest with the NBA, the league announced on Monday. With 0.3 seconds left on the clock in that game, Memphis' Vince Carter managed to throw an alley-oop pass to Courtney Lee, who caught the ball in midair and put it in for a 111-110 victory. It wasn't a tip, and it looked like the clock probably started late. The red light turned on only after the ball at left his hands, though, so it counted. CBSSports.com
