Mike Conley gave it his best shot with 26 points and five dimes but the Grizzlies were eliminated after dropping a 103-96 decision to the Spurs on Thursday.
Conley played 45 minutes in this one and shot 7-of-18 from the field, adding three triples and a steal to round out his line. He got a ton of flak last summer for signing a huge max deal but he did well to prove the doubters wrong all season long. Conley set career-highs in scoring, rebounding, three point shooting and shooting percentage this season and looked to be worth every penny. While it’s a disappointing end for a team that can’t seem to dodge the Spurs in round one, the Grizz should feel good about the future with Conley and Gasol leading the charge under David Fizdale.
