Struggling to Survive

2011 is a big year for the Memphis Grizzlies.

For the first time in 16 years, Memphis won a playoff game.

For the first time in 16 years, Memphis can win a playoff series.

For the first time since the Golden State Warriors defeated the Dallas Mavericks in the 2007 Playoffs, Memphis can become the fourth team in league history to qualify in the playoffs as the eighth seed and win the first round over the number one seeded team. The New York Knicks did the feat in the 1999 Playoffs where they went to distance before bowing out to the San Antonio Spurs in the finals.  

Leading 3-1 en route to Game 5, Memphis would have to wait another day to clinch these accomplishments.

By the way, this was an awesome game.

Game over.
