Bud Light Playoff Watch Party to Start at 6:30 p.m. at FedExForum
MEMPHIS, April 26, 2011 – Game 5 of the Western Conference First Round Playoff series between the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs will tip-off at 7:30 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday, April 27 at the AT&T Center and will air locally on SportSouth, the NBA has announced.
Grizzlies fans can watch the team try to eliminate the Spurs and capture the franchise’s first-ever postseason series victory locally on SportSouth, featuring the broadcast crew of play-by-play announcer Pete Pranica, analyst Brevin Knight and sideline reporter Rob Fischer. Game 5 coverage will begin on SportSouth at 7 p.m. with the pregame show Grizzlies LIVE and will be followed by postgame coverage featuring Pranica and Knight.
Memphis, which leads top-seeded San Antonio 3-1, is one win away from becoming the second eight-seed to knock off the one-seed since the NBA expanded the first round to a best-of-seven series (Golden State over Dallas in 2007).
When the series shifts back to San Antonio for Game 5, fans will be sure to want to come to FedExForum for another Bud Light Playoff Watch Party, starting at 6:30 p.m.
