Spurs 96, Grizzlies 82
Kawhi Leonard poured in a career-playoff-high 37 points, and
five San Antonio players scored in double figures as the Spurs
defeated the Memphis Grizzlies at the AT&T Center on Monday in
Game 2 of a Western Conference first-round playoff series.
San Antonio, the West's second seed, leads the best-of-seven
series 2-0 as the action moves to Memphis for Game 3 on Thursday
and Game 4 on Saturday.
The Spurs built a 26-point lead in the first half and had to
fight off a comeback from never-say-die Memphis, which cut San
Antonio's advantage to four points early in the fourth quarter
but could never get over the hump.
Cavaliers 117, Pacers 111
Kyrie Irving ripped the Indiana Pacers with 37 points, and the
Cleveland Cavaliers took a commanding two-game lead in an
opening-round Eastern Conference playoff series with a 117-111
win on Monday night.
The Cavs have never lost a playoff series in which they led 2-0
(12-0). Game 3 is Thursday night in Indianapolis.
LeBron James finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven
assists for Cleveland. Kevin Love contributed 27 points and 11
rebounds and was 12 of 12 from the foul line.
