The Grizzlies will try to get back into the series tonight on their home court.
Memphis, TN (Sports Network) -
The Western Conference Finals shift to Memphis on Saturday as the Grizzlies try to get back into the series against the San Antonio Spurs.
It's been three days since the teams last took the court on Tuesday, when San Antonio emerged with a 2-0 series advantage after a 93-89 overtime win.
"I'm sure if you get a break you want to take advantage of it and maybe take a little bit of a mental as well as a physical break," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich about the extended layoff. "But, at the same time do something to make sure you maintain at least your base conditioning, do some film and keep everybody focused on what we're trying to do, but not beat anybody over the head and then just pick it up toward game time."

Let's examine every possible scenario, or explanation about whether Hibbert should or should not have been in the game.
