The Memphis Grizzlies turned in the first shocker of the NBA postseason, eliminating the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs from the playoffs with a 99-91 victory in game six of their series on April 29 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis.

The Grizzles are just the second No. 8 seed in NBA playoff history to beat a top seed in a best-of-seven series.

“Not a lot of people knew about us coming in, but we certainly have made some noise and turned some heads and got some attention that probably wouldn’t have been given to us if we’d lost this series,” Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said. “We’d just be another eight seed losing to the No. 1 seed.”

Hollins and the Grizzles leaned on team veterans such as forward Zack Randolph, who scored 31 points with 11 rebounds. Randolph had dominated the Spurs’ front court the entire series. Spurs forward/center Tim Duncan scored just 12 points in the loss, while center Antonio McDyess scored only 10. Guard Tony Parker led San Antonio with 23 points in the loss.

Randolph said he’s excited about leading Memphis to its first second-round appearance.

“Emotion is high, not just for the Memphis Grizzlies but for the whole city of Memphis and the fans,” Randolph said. “It’s something. It’s a great accomplishment. We’ve got to be happy. We should be happy. But it’s a quick turnaround. We’ve got a game Sunday, and we have to get ready.”

Memphis will face the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Western Conference semifinals. Game one tips off on Sunday, May 1 at 1 p.m.
