In the nightcap of Thursday night’s 2017 NBA Playoff double-header, the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies battle it out in a do-or-die game for the home team.
Each team has won on its home court through the first five games of the season, so the Grizzlies will hope to keep the trend going in order to force the all-important Game 7.
With the stakes higher than ever for the Grizzlies in their elimination game, it will be interesting to see how the crowd responds. It will likely come down to how Memphis comes out firing. If the Grizzlies are successful early on, they could turn the home court advantage into a much-needed edge. However, if things aren’t going smoothly out of the gate, the crowd could get anxious and fill the arena with a tense energy that could have everyone on edge.
