The game was still within reach at the point this little incident happened so you would have hoped that there would have been cooler heads on the sideline during an elimination game for the Western Conference Finals.
But apparently there wasn't.
The announcers call what transpired late in the game between the Grizzlies coach and Bayless as a shove, but after watching it you might think differently.
I don't know. It looks like there may have been a shove, but it also looks like Bayless was sitting down already anyway. Maybe the announcers saw more then the camera caught, but only those in attendance and watching the bench (not the game; yeah right) know.
I would be shocked if this became anything more than fodder for the blog-o-sphere. Emotions get heated during games, especially when you are trying to stay alive for a trip to the NBA Finals. Maybe next season the Grizzlies will keep a cooler head.
San Antonio completed the sweep with a 93-86 win.
