Grizzlies Win ... the Series



Tonight, the Memphis Grizzlies became only the second team ever to win a best-of-seven first-round playoff series against a top-seeded team, beating the San Antonio Spurs 99-91 in front of 18,119 fans.

They road the back of Zach Randolph, who scored 13 points in the final 4:24, bringing the Grizzlies back from a one-point deficit and turning a tense crowd into a tent revival.

Now, roughly 36 hours from now, the Grizzlies will begin a second-round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Tipoff for Game 1, in Oklahoma City, is noon on Sunday.

More on tonight's game to come.
