Right now, the Spurs lead the Western Conferences best-of-seven playoff series, 3-2. San Antonio’s lead puts them in a position to eliminate the Grizzlies on their home court at FedExForum in Memphis. And, if tonight’s game is anything like Game 4, then we’re in for a real treat.
Both teams had us on the edge of our seats when they played the greatest playoffs game thus far on April 22. The Grizzlies ended up pulling the W over the Spurs, 110-108, thanks to Marc Gasol‘s clutch, game-winning layup in overtime. However, it seemed like a game between Kawhi Leonard, 25, and Mike Conley, 29.
Leonard had a career-high 43 points during his epic performance. He actually scored San Antonio’s final 16 points in the fourth. And, if Game 4 wasn’t enough to convince you that Leonard is San Antonio’s silent powerhouse, then this will: After Game 4, Grizzlies coach, David Fizdale, was so stunned by Leonard’s performance, that he openly took suggestions on how to guard him. “I’ve tried everything [to guard him], and the guy’s just … He’s tough,” Fizdale said, adding, “Man, is he a superstar.” Wow.
And, this moment [below] in Game 4 proved Fizdale’s words. Check out Leonard’s insane behind-the-back move into a step-back fade away…

Conley’s performance was outstanding as well, in Game 4. There’s not much else to say except — He had 35 points in 42 minutes, eight assists and nine rebounds. BOOM.
But, did Conley’s clutch floater outshine Leonard’s step-back jumper?
