Staring elimination in the face, Gary Neal made sure the Spurs would live on, at least for another five minutes.

The Real Deal Gary Neal!
one of the biggest shots of the year
damn spurs die already hahaha
Just when I thought I was out you suck me back in!
Man this might be the best overall playoffs in a decade. At least.
Should have fouled as soon as Neal received the ball, also Battier made a bad defense play by chasing Duncan.
Refs in the second half made bad calls in favour of the Spurs and the Grizzlies held their own, slowly building up their poise and were up 3 with 2 seconds left when this happened. And then they lose in overtime. IF Grizzlies can bring out this type of intensity on the ROAD, I imagine SA to fumble in game 6, in Memphis. Damn im annoyed by this result, that was Memphis’ game!
man tell me that commenatator wasnt doing that live?! how can someone be so non chalant about it! that three was huuuuuge!
come on grizz!
and you know the one bad thing about the spurs getting eliminated??
it means tony parkers off season begins.. no wives or girlfriends are safe!
total lapse defensively. They should’ve almost gone into a zone and had the arc protected by at least 3 men….I even agree with JTaylor, I wouldnt’ve been adverse to a foul at that point….Grizz are making this one tougher on themselves than it needs to be. You know what they say about the heart of a champion though
Manu’s near-three from the right corner was not too shabby either. Memphis messed up their execution late in regulation, Conley overdribbled a few times, had to rely on 3 jumpers by Marc and Zach (2 misses, 1 made) and FT’s to get points.
They should have kept grinding away, hope this doesn’t come back to haunt them.
Spurs can win this.
Saving your team from elimination with a single shot is a beautiful thing! Good shooter this Gary fella is.
Probably the best shot this season.
Big Shot Ro…. Uhh, Gary…
c’mon baby!My spurs only need to win the next game in memphis to be right back in this series!
Would the real Garry Sneal will stand up.
Coach Pop is a genius! LOVE HIM!
That was an insanely awesome finish…This and Manu’s shot in the corner were both INSANE! Love it! That being said, I’m not so sure the Spurs can stay alive for another game though. It took 33 pts from Manu -1 arm and a rediculous 3 point buzzer beater from a little known role player to to get the win at home. The fans are going to be nuts in game 6 and Memphis just might run the old Spurs off the court.
wow. the spurs sure can pick ‘em.
I love how the Spurs can always find players that seem overlooked or forgotten or just simply un-known by other teams. Gary Neal is a true pro.
C Cantrell, best scouting in the league, bar none.
@David It was the Grizz broadcast, I’m sure he wasn’t too excited about the shot. lol.
That one shot can turn this whole series around. What about that back door play from Duncan to Ginobili? Reminiscent of Doc’s alley opp play to KG in the Knicks series. 2 points with virtually no time off the clock. Coaching matters.
+1 on the Spurs scouting. Outside of TD, their entire rotation is made up of undrafted and late first and second round players.
Yes sir, by far.
Spurs should have lost, can’t wait till they lose, then they are dismantled and makes life easier for my Lakers for the next three years. I Hate Tim Duncan, Gary saved them. Battier messed up, like someone stated before. Memphis will play the Lakers to go to Finals. Memphis will beat one man superstar, I take all the shots, don’t need Westbrook having heart Kevin Durant. Memphis in 5 over OKC. BOOK IT!!
what a game…
lol tht makes sense
i was rooting for the grizlies but whoa thats a large claim
I dont care who you support, if you commentate you love basketball and if you love basketball you love a three point buzzer beater that saves a team from getting knocked. poor form.
^you know, what commentators do.
Like I said Spurs in 7
DRob just enjoying the game
