The Spurs are seeded second and the Grizzlies are seeded seventh in the Western Conference.

Here's how to watch the opening-round series between the Grizzlies and Spurs (all times Eastern; *-if necessary).

Tony Allen (calf) has been diagnosed with a strain of the medial gastrocnemius muscle in his right leg and will be out indefinitely. Their reward is getting to play a gritty Memphis Grizzlies basketball team that they are very familiar with.

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game. That will be a major blow for the team's hopes upsetting San Antonio in the first round. The over/under total for the game is listed at 190.5 points.

The Mavericks snapped a five-game losing streak with a 100-93 victory. One of San Antonio's victories came in overtime.

"It's an unfortunate injury for Tony and the team". "Now everyone is focused on our main goal, and that's winning a championship". Over their last five games, the Spurs are putting up just 95.8 points per game while giving up 97.8 on defense.

Story line: This is the fifth time these teams have met in the playoffs in the last 13 years, so the familiarity is there. "We need to be more consistent".

The Grizzlies announced Thursday that Allen "will be continually re-evaluated while beginning rehab immediately".

An extended absence could be devastating because even at 35 years old, Allen is playing as big of a role with the Grizzlies as ever. "It drives me. I know that I'm going to have to play well and Marc (Gasol) is going to have to play well".

Game 2 is Monday in San Antonio before the series switches to Memphis for games 3 and 4 on April 20 and 22.
