They played all the right music, as Don't Stop Believin' blared through the FedEx Forum air that was still filled with faith almost until the end.

They used the right props, the yellow lint floating down from above as the "Memphis Believe" towels were swung with so much passion from the sellout crowd.

But even with a city at its back in this building where they've been nearly unbeatable all season long, the "Grit and Grind" Memphis Grizzlies are likely no more after falling 104-93 to the San Antonio Spurs in overtime of Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Saturday night. They now trail the Spurs 3-0 in the series.

As was the case in San Antonio's Game 2 overtime win, Tim Duncan took over when it counted most. With one fan yelling "Hey Duncan, why don't you retire?!" he showed yet again why there's simply no reason for the future Hall of Famer to consider hanging up those sneakers just yet. He hit a 19-foot jumper to open the extra period, followed it with a layup that turned into a three-point play, then handed the baton to the likes of Tiago Splitter and Tony Parker as the Spurs surged.

"He was huge the other night in overtime and got it done for us, and he did it again tonight," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "That's why he is considered as great as he has for the last 17 years. He's been unbelievable. He feels a responsibility to carry us in those kinds of times, and he did it again tonight. I don't know what else to say. He was fantastic."

Duncan scored seven of his 24 points in overtime, while Parker made up for his disastrous start by finishing with 26 points. The Grizzlies were led by Mike Conley's 20 points and had five players score in double figures, but they were woeful offensively yet again while shooting just 39.2% overall.
