With the rash of injuries the Memphis Grizzlies had in the second half of the 2015-16 season, they were fortunate to even make the playoffs. It should come as no surprise that they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs outscored the Grizzlies 412-324 in this series and they were taking it easy on them, as Kawhi Leonard is the only Spurs’ player that averaged over 30 minutes played per game in this series. The Grizzlies only shot 39.4% from the floor, 29.7% from three point range and 70% from the free throw line against the Spurs. It’s impossible to win that way. 25-year old SG Lance Stephenson and 39-year old SG Vince Carter were the only two Grizzlies’ players that played well in this series. Stephenson played in four games off the bench and he averaged 23.7 minutes, 13.0 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. Carter started all four games for the Grizzlies and he averaged 22.7 minutes, 11.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.
