Memphis Grizzlies covered the spread in unreal fashion

Wade Baldwin

The Memphis Grizzlies covered the spread in their game against the New York Knicks in pretty incredible fashion.

The Grizzlies were up 98-88 against the Knicks on Friday night with 19 seconds left. They had the ball just past halfcourt with Wade Baldwin IV dribbling out the clock. Then with a second left and players walking off the court, Baldwin decided to launch a 3-pointer. Naturally, the ball went in.

That made the score 101-88, which was the final. The Grizzlies were favored by 12.5 points in the game, so the three ensured they covered the spread by a half-point.

Not only did the late, seemingly meaningless three cover the spread, but it also created some bad blood.

That sounds an awful lot like another complaint we heard last week. Do you think Baldwin had any idea that his last-second heavy would create so many ripple effects?
