Just trying not to make it easy for those guys.

The Spurs learned that the hard way in the first half, as he torched them for 25 of his 32 points in the game.

"I don't really care about the talks", he said. I don't have time.

"Tonight, I just saw some opportunities and I was aggressive". We expected it. But we just didn't respond well to it.

Kawhi Leonard: A serious candidate for the 2016-17 Most Valuable Player award, Leonard will be the best player on the floor whenever he's in the game.

Zack Cozart hit a two-run homer in the second inning and Joey Votto added a solo shot in the third to give the Reds a 3-0 lead against Tommy Milone (1-0), who gave up three runs and six hits in five innings.

Whatever you call those sorts of games, you had better learn to love them, because the first round series between the San Antonio Spurs and the Memphis Grizzlies is going to be full of them.

BEYOND THE ARC: San Antonio led the National Basketball Association shooting 39.1 percent from 3-point range. Mike Conley was the only other Grizzlies player in double digits, finishing with 13.

Name SearchWatch Service' Andrew Harrison was the third-highest scorer with 10 points, which tells you about all you need to know.

Game Two of the best-of-seven first-round series is today in San Antonio. He crowded Conley in the corner two minutes into the first quarter, which forced an early Memphis timeout, and was crucial in slowing the point guard down after his hot start. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich will not allow this team to be shocked in the first round again.

Gasol nearly single-handedly kept the Grizzlies in the game, pouring in 25 points while outscoring all his teammates combined.

"There's no reason to hold anything back - it's the playoffs", Gasol said. Hank was tough on us. "We beat them by 30". Leonard was brutally efficient with the ball in his hands, scoring 32 points on 11-of-14 shooting from the field (many by getting right to the basket), 9-of-9 from the free-throw line, and dishing out a team-high five assists.

The Spurs' Game 1 blowout win on Saturday was a flawless example of Allen's value. "MVP!" Leonard scored 15 points in the third quarter as the Spurs built a 20-point lead. "We just couldn't get shots".

"We can't get caught up in it and let our minds take us away from the game and complain", Mills said. We made a couple mistakes. "Against a good team like that, you can't do that". Oklahoma City is in the unfamiliar role of underdog after reaching the Western Conference finals last season before also being eliminated by the Warriors. Mike Conley and the seventh-seeded Grizzlies will hope to start the series Saturday with a win on the road. Watch and enjoy live match Spurs vs Grizzlies on ESPN.

After a very slow start, nearly everything went right tonight for the San Antonio Spurs.
