From sportsman to businessman, Stern never far from the NBA

Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol reacts during the second half of Game 3 in the team's NBA basketball first-round playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, April 20, 2017, in Memphis, Tenn. Seventh-seeded Memphis will be seeking a rebound from All-Star center Marc Gasol, who scored 32 points in Game 1 before dropping to 12 on 4-of-15 shooting in Game 2. He averaged 1.3 points per game this postseason after averaging 5.1 points and 6.5 rebounds during the regular season.

Leonard scored the Spurs' last 16 points in the fourth quarter and his fade-away jumper with 12 seconds left in regulation gave San Antonio a 96-94 lead.

Game 4 of Spurs-Grizzlies is Saturday (8 p.m., ESPN). "You got to battle, and you're going to try to do your work early and just battle him the whole game".

The victor of that series will take on the victor between the third-seeded Raptors and sixth-seeded Bucks in the second round, and this matchup could go the distance of seven games based on the results of the first two. But the Grizzlies were able to hold on to their possessions by only turning the ball over five times.

"We turned it over twice to start the minute like we were out on a picnic someplace", Popovich said in his post-match news conference. That's where that part of the story ends, because he airballed to end the fourth and slightly dim the moment, which capped Leonard's run of 16-straight fourth quarter points. However, if Parker is going to produce zero points offensively, the Spurs are in deep trouble.

After missing all eight shots of his shots from the field and managing only eight points in a 104-77 game-three loss, DeRozan hit 12-of-22 from the floor and 9-of-9 from the free throw line.

Game four of the series is Monday in Atlanta. They got just as many points from Manu Ginobili, who played just 10 minutes, and dare I say it, looked just a tad...old?

Game 5 is Tuesday night in San Antonio.

Suddenly, the city is rallying around its coach and the Grizzlies, and they waved the Growl Towels featuring the "Believe Memphis" motto waiting for them on every seat in the venue for the first home game of this best-of-seven series.

In overtime, the Spurs led 102-100 when Parker intercepted a pass by Conley and pushed the ball up-court. The largest halftime deficit overcome to win a playoff game had been 21 points by Baltimore against Philadelphia in 1948. "Hopefully they can show some love and be loud in Game 4". Conley's got that on lock, so the other four players can concentrate on preventing open looks.

The strength of the Spurs has always been they can hang in games with their bench while starters get some rest. "Zach Randolph, the most rugged guy in the game, has zero free throws but somehow Kawhi Leonard had 19 free throws".

The best game to this point of the National Basketball Association playoffs happened on Saturday night. He scored 11 points in the second quarter and even had a rare dunk. "I felt a lot better in the second half", Ibaka said.
