I don't like laying such big numbers, especially in the playoffs. However, the Grizzlies have nothing for the Spurs without Marc Gasol and Mike Conley. Memphis is starting a bunch of guys past their prime and damn near retirement. Sorry Grizzlies fans, but this series has sweep written all over it.
