Spurs cruise to 94-68 victory over Grizzlies
SAN ANTONIO- Patty Mills had 16 points, Kawhi Leonard added 13 and the San Antonio Spurs never trailed in beating the Memphis Grizzlies 94-68 on Tuesday night to sweep the first two games of the first-round series in imposing fashion.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 10 points and eight rebounds in 26 minutes. Aldridge sat out the entire fourth quarter along with Leonard and Tony Parker while Tim Duncan and Danny Green made brief appearances.
If history and Memphis' current state are any indication, the Grizzlies' prospects don't look good heading into a home game Friday night.
San Antonio's suffocating defense held Memphis to franchise lows in total points and points in a quarter 12 years to the day after establishing those records on its way to a series sweep.
Tony Allen led Memphis with 12 points and Zach Randolph had 11 points and 12 rebounds.
