For a few years the Southwest Division was a battle between the Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs. With the Mavs falling off, it’s become the Spurs and the Memphis Grizzlies.
Spurs fans won’t easily forget the eighth-seeded Grizzlies knocking them out of the playoffs two years ago, and now it seems like almost every time the two teams play it’s a battle. Two of the three games between the Spurs and Grizz so far this season have gone into overtime.
The Grizzlies continue to improve each year and they’ve become one of the teams you don’t want to meet in the postseason.
But now they’ve gone and done something drastic.
The Grizzlies traded away Rudy Gay in a three-team deal that also includes Detroit and Toronto. Gay will go to the Raptors along with Hamed Haddadi, the Pistons get Jose Calderon and the Grizzlies get Ed Davis, Austin Daye and Tayshaun Prince.
