"They're not gonna rook us."
Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale went on an epic rants after last night's loss to the Spurs, blasting the officials for calling a one-sided game in which Kawhi Leonard shot 19 free throws, more than the entire Grizzlies team.
Following the Grizzlies' 96-82 loss, Fizdale pointed out a number of discrepancies between the two teams' stat lines, including Zach Randolph's lack of trips to the free throw line and the fact that the Spurs shot twice as many free throws.
"Zach Randolph, the most rugged guy in the game, had zero free throws."
"But somehow, Kawhi Leonard had 19 free throws. First half, we shot 19 shots in the paint, and we had six free throws. They shot 11 times in the paint, and they had 23 free throws. I'm not a numbers guy, but that doesn't seem to add up. Overall, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint. We had 15 free throws for the game. They shot 18 times in the paint and had 32 free throws. Kawhi shot more free throws than our whole team. Explain it to me."
The Grizzlies now find themselves in an 0-2 hole as the series shifts to Memphis for Game 3 on Thursday night. Fizdale's comments will certainly warrant a fine from the league but he'll take that if the Grizz get to the line more than Kawhi in Game 3.
