Memphis Grizzlies earn first playoff win in franchise history

They were previously 0-12 in playoff games. They reached three consecutive postseasons from 2004 to 2006, getting swept by the Spurs, Suns, and Mavericks in that order.

But in Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round against the West’s No. 1 seed, the San Antonio Spurs, the Memphis Grizzlies are finally in the win column when it comes to the postseason after Richard Jefferson’s wide open top of the key three hit the back of the rim as the buzzer went off.

The Charlotte Bobcats, who began play in the 2004-05 season, are now the only NBA franchise without a playoff win. They reached the postseason last year, but were swept in the first round by the Orlando Magic.
