Through 1 Quarter

We’ve seen some fireworks one quarter in as the San Antonio Spurs and the Memphis Grizzlies have combined for 68 points. a victory is still up for grabs for either team, but San Antonio is up 35-33

The Spurs haven’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to eight points or fewer. Memphis is in a similar position to San Antonio as their squad has been held to no more than seven points.

Memphis might be down, but they’ve been down at the end of the first quarter six times this season and have won 67% of those games — in fact, oddly enough, that’s better than their overall win percentage (57%).
