Memphis Grizzlies Coach Fizdale criticises officials in game 2 of the playoffs to the Spurs 96-82. One thing that’s official will be that fine.
Fizdale went at the officials in his postgame press conference, pointing out the free-throw disparity and calling the officiating “unprofessional.”

“I’m not gonna let them treat us that way. I know Pop’s got pedigree and I’m a young rookie, but they’re not gonna rook us. That’s unacceptable. That’s unprofessional. My guys dug in that game and earned the right to be in that game. And they did not even give us a chance.
Take that for data!”
You know that’s going to be a meme!
‘The Spurs shot 31 of 32 from the free-throw line on Monday while Memphis attempted just 15 free throws. Kawhi Leonard had 19 attempts on his own and made all 19 from the stripe. The Grizzlies players were clearly upset with the refs during the game, and Fizdale stood up for his team.’
Can’t deny his passion and the fact that he stood up for his team, he certainly riled up his team and his fans! Fizdale, who replaced Dave Joerger last May after the Grizzlies were swept in the first round by the Spurs. Memphis came into the playoffs are underdogs.
