Leonard leads Spurs over Grizzlies

San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Antonio Spurs began their journey to atone for last season's gut-wrenching NBA Finals defeat by beating a familiar foe.

Kawhi Leonard led a balanced Spurs attack with 14 points and seven rebounds as San Antonio downed the Memphis Grizzlies, 101-94, in the season opener for both teams and a rematch of last year's Western Conference Final.

Ray Allen chucked in a wild game-tying 3-pointer with five seconds remaining in regulation in Game 6 of the title round before the Miami Heat prevailed in overtime in Game 7 for back-to-back NBA championships.

San Antonio outscored the Grizzlies 30-7 in the second quarter Wednesday and led by as many as 21 before holding off Memphis in the fourth.
