The Grizzlies trailed by two and Mike Conley found Shane Battier and this is the day to break out the late, great Don Poier, isn't it?
Only in the movies and in Memphis. Only after a decade of frustrations and angst.
Only with longtime assistant Lionel Hollins at the helm, only in this Texas town where another Memphis team once collapsed, only with the ball in the hands of the most beloved of the original Grizzlies, the prodigal Battier.
"If I had one guy to shoot, it would be Shane," said Grizzlies owner Mike Heisley. "He won so many games for us."
But never a playoff game. Until now, that is.
