Grizzlies coach David Fizdale fined $30K for officiating rant

Grizzlies coach David Fizdale fined $30K for officiating rant

Kawhi Leonard poured in a career-playoff-high 37 points, and five Spurs scored in double figures as San Antonio, the West's second seed, took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

"Zach Randolph, the most rugged guy in the game, had zero free throws", Fizdale said after Monday's game.

Memphis Grizzlies guard Vince Carter (15) is held by teammate Brandan Wright (34) after he was called for a technical foul during the first half in Game 2 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs, Monday, April 17, 2017, in San Antonio.

After delivering his two cents, Fizdale slammed his pen on the table in front of him, said "Take that for data!" and left the podium, much to the delight of meme lovers everywhere. He became the first player since Dirk Nowitzsi to hit 19 or more in the playoffs since 2011.

Defensively, the Spurs are ranked first in the National Basketball Association, and it showed in the closing half of the fourth quarter. You have to get your team going, and you do it whichever way is necessary, I guess.

The series now moves to Memphis for Game 3 on Thursday. There haven't been many signs of San Antonio's pass-happy attack in this series.

"I'm not a numbers guy, but that doesn't seem to add up", might be the best quote of the postseason. So if it's not a rain delay in Cleveland here in the World Series, then we win the World Series?

The Grizzlies came into the postseason as the Western Conference's No. 7 seed while matching up with the No. 2 seeded Spurs. The game is televised on TNT. The over/under total for the game is listed at 189 points. The Pacers may be making a lineup change looking for a defensive boost and a way to stay in front of James, Irving and Love.

According to the prediction, the Game two will be ended up with the same result of first as Spurs win. So, the Spurs might be planned to concentrate on Gasol's movement in this Game 2. An MRI exam showed only a bruise. "They took advantage of it, and that's what San Antonio does, make something out of every little mistake".

"That could happen, but I doubt it", Popovich said.

PRESSURE IS ON: Paul George.

Fizdale complained bitterly that officials had unfairly skewed the free throw count against his players.

Raptors at Bucks, Milwaukee leads 1-1.

"We're all quiet", he said of the Grizzlies to other perceived slights by the officials.

KEEP AN EYE ON: The Bucks centers.
