MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - The Grizz will face the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals in game one of the series this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. The Spurs defeated the Golden State Warriors Thursday night 94-82.

This is not the first time the Grit and Grind crew has faced the Spurs in the post-season. When they met in 2011 it was another historic moment for Memphis.

That year, the Grizzlies were an 8th seed, taking on top-seeded San Antonio in the first round.

Several firsts happened that year.

It was Memphis' first trip back to the post season since 2008. The Grizzlies got their first ever playoff victory, knocking off the Spurs in game one on the road. And it was the Grizzlies' first ever series victory, upsetting the four-time NBA Champion Spurs four games to two.

But, that was then and this is now, according to the Grizzlies.

The first game in the series tips off today at 2:30 p.m.
