Ohh, risky pass by Tony. Out of control there. Near turnover. Great job by Z-Bo to keep moving and get open for him for that layup.

Grizzlies defense driving their offense right now. Two stops, two fastbreak bucks, tie game at 87 with 1:30 to play. Another stop. Long jumper from top of the key from D.Arthur. Grizzlies lead. Duncan responds with a jumper of his own. Arthur strikes right back. 34 seconds to play. Grizzlies up 2.

If you aren't watching Spurs vs Grizzlies right now, you're missing out on a beautiful game of basketball. Tune in.

Darrel Arthur has been absolutely huge for Memphis in the 4th quarter.

His defensive quickness has been key. Two big jumpers late in the fourth. Came up with the huge rebound there to trigger that fastbreak hoop for Tony Allen. Grizzlies up 4 with 17 seconds left.

I still think Pop should have gone back to Bonner to negate Arthur and open up their offense.

the Grizzlies better not trade Gay or Randolph this year. They are legit contenders.

Missed them both.

I hope this game goes to OT. Both teams are fun to watch.

That should be the end.

Stephen Jackson is a cold blooded shooter in the clutch. Always feel like he is going to make those big shots when he takes them. Fearless. A leader. Loves pressure.

Oh my! Tony Parker with the three to force overtime!

Rudy!? What have you done! Those missed free throws ...

I think the Grizzlies small-ball lineup may have run out of gas.

Arthur has been on the floor a long time without getting a rest. With T.Splitter fouled out, I'd like to see Memphis go big here and bring Marc Gasol back in the game. Play through Gasol and Z-Bo in the post.

Maybe bring in Wayne Ellington too for TA to spread the floor. Play through the post.

Spacing is bad for Memphis offensively right now. Tired legs.

An extra shooter could really help them.

Looks like Spurs have too.

Excellent backdoor cut by Manu Ginobili. Took advantage of W.Ellington's weak defense.

Excellent block by Rudy Gay to deny Manu the hoop. No goaltend. Gay has had a couple of big rebounds late in the fourth / overtime too.

I love that dribble drive and pull up jumper at the elbow move. I wish more players took that shot. Ray Allen was fantastic at that earlier in his career. Big play by Rudy Gay.

Ohh, huge transition hoop. TA to D.Arthur for the slam. Memphis back in control.
