Two things to watch for tonight in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals: A little more (maybe a lot) of Tony Allen defending Tony Parker, and a lot more production from Zach Randolph, who goes to his right about as often as Rachel Maddow.
The Spurs did an exceptional job of keeping Randolph from hurting them in their decisive Game 1 victory, but the Grizzlies and coach Lionel Hollins have shown themselves masters of making the correct adjustments as the playoffs have gone along.
Don’t forget: Memphis lost Game 1 against the Los Angeles Clippers and Game 1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
And we all know what those teams are doing now — enjoying their summer vacations.
For more of a lookahead to tonight’s Game 2, give a listen to this podcast I did with Jason Anderson on AM-680 in Louisville.
