Yes, it was quite a way to start the Western Conference Finals. A loud crowd at the AT&T Center had lots of reasons to cheer, whether it was the Spurs tough interior defense on Memphis power forward Zach Randolph or Matt Bonner and Kawhi Leonard splashing four three pointers each.
However, as point guard Tony Parker reminded reporters from the postgame podium...it's just one win. "I can guarantee you, there is no one in our locker room celebrating", said Parker, who paced the Spurs with 20 points and 9 assists in Game One. It's the proper attitude with which to approach Game 2.
The Spurs are well aware of the fact that Memphis is the stingiest team in the NBA in terms of surrendering points. The Grizzlies will likely come out of the gate in Game 2 with a renewed sense of urgency and the Spurs will have to match their energy and intensity. The Spurs are well aware of the fact that the Grizzlies also lost the opener in each of their two previous series, and they came back to win those convincingly.
Yes, it was a good way to start the series, but Memphis has built it's reputation on grit and grind and we will likely see lots more of that as the series continues.
