Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale offered up scathing criticism of the officials Monday, on the heels of his team’s 96-82 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.
“It’s unfortunate that I’ve got a guy like [point guard] Mike Conley that in his whole career has got zero technical fouls and just cannot seem to get the proper respect from the officials that he deserves,” Fizdale said after Memphis fell to a 2-0 deficit. “It was a very poorly officiated basketball game.”
