Ever since Zach Randolph and the Grizzlies bum-rushed the Spurs in the 2011 playoffs, San Antonio has come correct against Memphis. After that ill-fated first round, the Spurs are 15-2 against the Grizz, including a 107-100 victory in Tennessee earlier this month. Led by big man Marc Gasol, who is averaging career highs across the stats sheet, Memphis has been an early season surprise, particularly in the punishing Southwest Division. With Patty Mills on the mend, the Spurs remain among the NBA elite, having notched road wins against the Clippers and Warriors on consecutive nights.
