Memphis Grizzlies vs San Antonio Spurs - 3:30 PM
It was just two years ago when the Grizzlies became the third No. 8 seed in NBA playoff history to upset a No. 1. That top-ranked team was the Spurs.
Fast-forward two years later and these teams clash in the Western Conference Finals, starting Sunday afternoon in San Antonio.
Their paths to this point, both this season and as organizations, are wildly different.
The Spurs are the benchmark franchise in the NBA. They've captured four NBA championships since 1999 and have made the Western Conference Finals eight of the last 15 years.
The Grizzlies are competing in their first Western Conference Finals in team history, a history that started in 1995 in Vancouver, British Columbia and eventually landed in Memphis in July 2001.
