2011 – With a 99-91 Memphis Grizzlies victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the first round, the eighth-seeded Grizzlies upset the first-seeded Spurs, four games to two. Zach Randolph scored a game-high 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Marc Gasol also chipped in 12 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks in the win.

The Grizzlies are on the verge of yet another big first-round upset this season. They have split the first four games with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Once again, it is Randolph and Gasol who are leading the way as the team hopes to take at least one more game in Oklahoma City.
