Why Memphis should start Pondexter

San Antonio's smothering defense on Zach Randolph worked to perfection in Game 1 as the Spurs clogged the middle and dared the Grizzlies to fire away from the perimeter. One player on Memphis who took advantage, though, was reserve forward Quincy Pondexter.

Will Pondexter's team-high 17 points, which included 5 three-pointers, help him move into the starting lineup tonight? There's reason to believe it could.
