Grizzlies take down the Spurs

5:50 pm on 30 April 2011

The Memphis Grizzlies have sent the top seeded San Antonio Spurs spinning out of the NBA basketball playoffs.

The Grizzlies won game six 99-91 at home in Memphis to take the best of seven series 4-2 and set up a Western Conference second round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Grizzlies needed 10 seasons to get there as they emerged as just the second eighth-seeded team to upset a top seed since the NBA expanded the first round series to a best-of-seven.
