As a reward, they'll face an experienced Memphis Grizzlies team ready for an upset.
This will be the fifth time both teams meeting in the playoffs.
Thankfully, even if you don't have cable you'll still be able to get a Grizzlies vs Spurs live stream during the entire series! The bell rings for Game 1 in this heavyweight fight for the second-seeded Spurs and No. 7 Grizzlies on Sunday (AEDT) at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. Over their last five games, the Spurs are putting up just 95.8 points per game while giving up 97.8 on defense. However, San Antonio didn't light the world on fire last postseason and seems to be in a real slump right now. That will be a major blow for the team's hopes upsetting San Antonio in the first round.
The Grizzlies announced Thursday that Allen "will be continually re-evaluated while beginning rehab immediately". With Allen out, Kawhi Leonard should have an easier time and post some big numbers after a subpar season series against them.
The Grizzlies didn't go into specifics after Allen was hurt Wednesday. The 35-year-old Allen helped limit Leonard to 23-of-54 shooting in three games this season, keeping Memphis in a ton of games.
