After sweeping a three-game West Coast road trip, the Memphis Grizzlies returned home to face the San Antonio Spurs, where they won in overtime 101-98 on Friday (Jan. 11).
Facing a difficult back-to-back, the Grizzlies fell to the Dallas Mavericks (104-83) on the road on Saturday (Jan. 12).
Some say the Grizz's hard-fought game against the Spurs zapped Memphis' energy. Others see the loss as inexcusable.
Against the Spurs, the Grizzlies were a hard-working bunch. Fans at the FedExForum witnessed a playoff-atmosphere battle against a team Memphis had not beaten since Game 6 of the first round of the 2011 playoffs.
