#1 San Antonio Spurs vs. #8 Memphis Grizzlies
2004 Western First Round: #3 San Antonio 4 - #6 Memphis 0
In their third year after moving from Vancouver – moment of silence – the Grizzlies franchise made their first playoff appearance in 2004 and got a date with the defending champion San Antonio Spurs. Things did not go well for Memphis. Coach Hubie Brown and 3rd-year forward Pau Gasol coaxed 50 wins during the regular season from the team but zero in this series as the Spurs and Tim Duncan beat down Memphis by an average of 14 points. As these teams set to square off once again, Memphis is still seeking its first playoff victory having been swept in three straight series.
