MEMPHIS -- Like Tuesday, Game 3 of the Western Conference finals went to overtime. And like Tuesday, the Spurs controlled the extra session and beat the Grizzlies 104-93. San Antonio now leads the series 3-0. Game 4 is Monday in Memphis. Here are three observations from a rare Memphis loss at the Grindhouse, where Memphis will now have to grind harder than ever to beat a team that doesn't look as old as people say they are.1. The Spurs may not have the biggest three, but its a pretty good three.
Memphis isnt making a living scoring lots of points, but its defense has bailed it out over and over.
San Antonio is a different animal, a veteran Big Three that might not get as much attention as the Heats, but does as much damage. And the Grizzlies havent found much damage control in this series.
Tony Parker may be the main terror all series, but in Game 3the three old pros left no doubt they were in it together.
The first quarter was all Memphis and apparently all Memphis had. An 18-point...
