Tonight, the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies will continue their first round series in Game 6 in Memphis. For the Spurs they know what’s on the line tonight – win or the season ends and quite possibly an era of dominance closes.
So for Spurs fans wondering what’s on the minds of Grizzlies players heading into tonight’s contest, here is what Grizzlies’ Zach Randolph, Shane Battier,OJ Mayo, and head coach Lionel Hollins have to say:
“We’re confident,” Randolph said. “It’s going to be a tough game. Everybody is going to have to contribute to get this win. It’s definitely a must-win situation.”
“We’ve always played better with an edge,” Griz forward Shane Battier said. “After two wins we may have lost it. But being around us (Thursday), I have a feeling the edge is back.”
“We feel like we’re one of the tougher teams in the league, and we’ve fought through a lot this year,” Mayo said. “We’ll continue fighting.”
Coach Hollins on his team not wanting to head back to San Antonio for a Game 7:
“I don’t want to go back to San Antonio, either,” Hollins said. “I’d rather win and move on. But whatever happens will happen. We just have to go out and compete and play the game.”
