Despite being hit hard with injuries throughout the season. The Memphis Grizzlies still managed to make the playoffs without the services of Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, but all that ended yesterday when they were swept by the Spurs on their homecourt. For Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger, it was an emotional time.
“I hope you guys took notice of what happened in the last three minutes of this game,” Joerger said, growing emotional. “Matt and Vince, they wanted to finish the game. That’s what Grizzlies basketball is about. Those guys are pros, and for what we’ve been through, I would do anything for those guys.”
