Memphis coach Fizdale blasts 'unprofessional' officiating

Memphis coach Fizdale blasts 'unprofessional' officiating

"When they go up and they're shooting at 75 percent in those first couple of minutes, you have to put your hat on on the defensive end".

But will it go down as an all-time great?

San Antonio had a better start than in Game 1.

San Antonio kept pouring it on in the second quarter and the Grizzlies had no answer, growing more frustrated with every empty possession.

Memphis cut that 26-point deficit down to five midway through the final frame, but ultimately ran out of gas.

Carter did his part on the offensive end with 5 of 9 field goals overall. "We're going to go out there, keep trying to give them hell, keep competing and we'll get ourselves a win".

"We don't get the respect", Fizdale screamed. Leonard shot a flawless 19-19 from the free throw line compared to the Grizzlies who shot just 15 free throws overall as a team the entire game.

Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale is starting down his first 2-0 deficit as a head coach in the National Basketball Association. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article. Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard took 19 himself. First half we shot 19 shots in the paint and we had six free throws. There will be no mention of the attempt in the scoresheet.

Those numbers only got bigger in the second half, as the Grizzlies shot 35 times in the paint but only took 15 free throws, while the Spurs shot 18 times in the paint yet took 32 free throws. Memphis was outscored by 39 points in the 26 minutes its sixth man played. Without Tony Allen, the Grizz have had to try to guard Kawhi with a number of people that simply aren't equipped for the task. "But somehow, Kawhi Leonard had 19 free throws". He's probably going to continue to get the the line. "They forced us into some tough situations in that third quarter and broke the game open". After calling it "huge" for the team's confidence, he then went off on a tangent, ripping into the officiating and how Leonard had more free throws than his entire team, despite being a team that is more aggressive closer to the basket. The only team to commit more fouls per game in the regular season were the Suns, who happened to play at the second fastest pace in the National Basketball Association. "Being more patient, seeing where the guys are coming from, starting to bait on the other team, start getting the hockey assists".
