Memphis Grizzlies 124, San Antonio Spurs 122 (Final/OT)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
The triple take: Spurs 124, Grizzlies 122 (OT)
1. It’s valuable for Spurs’ young stars to take clutch shots, even if they miss.
2. The FT thing is a thing.
3. Sochan is growing comfortable enough in his own skin to get under oppenents’ expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…) via @expressnews – 1:10 AM

“We’re looking for them every time. In regulation and in overtime. We are making up a play for either one of them. We’ll win or lose by those shots and next time, it’ll drop.” – Poeltl on the Spurs putting looking to Devin and Keldon being their go-to players down the stretch – 1:03 AM

“To play them the way we did tonight feels really good. You’re always disappointed when you lose but so many good things. These guys are growing and playing the way they need to play to win. So, it was a good night.” – Pop on Spurs’ close loss to Memphis – 12:52 AM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Desmond Bane on the Grizzlies backcourt:
“We ain’t do nothing yet. Our goal is to make some noise come May and June. I’m sure once May and June come around and y’all ask us the same question, we’re not even going to have to answer it. Everybody will know.” – 12:29 AM
Memphis Grizzlies @memgrizz
the first duo in franchise history to record 30+ pts 5+ reb, 5+ asts ✅
stamp that.

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
In the Clippers’ 16-4 run to close the third, John Wall scored or assisted on 11 of their points. Wall has been good in stretches but that probably ties with his closing run in San Antonio as his most impactful minutes this season. – 11:56 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Anthony Edwards said postgame, “we gonna turn it around, don’t worry about it.”
Edwards also said: “There’s no more time. The time is now. We got to get going. I think we’ll turn it around in Memphis, for sure. I think Memphis will bring it out of us.”
So patience and urgency. – 11:53 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
One of the sneaky best parts of the game that I didn’t see many people point out is that Dillon Brooks air balled that shot late, but sprinted to make the contest on Johnson that forced overtime.
A minute later, he hits the 3 to take it to two possessions. Big time redemption. – 11:52 PM
Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Ja Morant says Desmond Bane is playing at an all-star level. Wanted to make sure that was mentioned. And oh yeah, he believes Memphis’ backcourt is the best in the league. He said “top two, not two” on multiple occasions. – 11:33 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
It took everything the Grizzlies had to close out that win over the Spurs.
And maybe a little bit of help from @GrizzOnBally, too.

The Grizz were a problem on the boards.
They had a new Spurs opp season high 18 offensive rebounds (previous high was 16 by MIN).
They also scored opp season high 28 2nd chance points (previous high was 22 by IND & CHI) – 11:02 PM

Much better control of the ball tonight for San Antonio, they finished with a season low 12 turnovers – 10:57 PM

Devin Vassell on missing his potential game-winning 3 at the end of OT:
“I keep replaying it over and over in my mind. It was a good look.”
Added that he belongs in those moments and that he would shoot the exact same shot given another chance at it. – 10:56 PM

The Spurs fall to 0-5 when losing the 3PT line and 0-7 when trailing by double digits.
That Vassell three goes in or one of those late regulation shots goes in, and the Spurs have a win in both of these categories – 10:46 PM

The Spurs had a chance to win it, but Devin Vassell missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

The Big Spurs have assigned Malaki Branham to the Little Spurs. He’ll be with the team for their games at Lakeland this weekend.
Branham had gotten some playing time recently (even started two games) in the wake of various injuries, but he should see a lot of minutes with ATX. – 2:54 PM
