NBA Playoffs: Sam Young Trash-Talking DeJuan Blair ... Sort Of

I've gotta admit, I've not been following the San Antonio Spurs / Memphis Grizzlies playoff matchup all that much - even though it includes two former Panthers in Spurs' forward DeJuan Blair and Grizzles' forward Sam Young. Both have been making an impact - Young dropped a team-high 17 points in 27 minutes of action in the Spurs' loss on Wednesday while Blair has been one of San Antonio's best players off the bench and had nine points and six rebounds last Sunday.

Young has also gotten the better of two of Blair's shots and he's not letting him forget about it.

Of his ex-Pitt teammate:

Young, who starts at small forward, has blocked a Blair shot in each of the first two games.

"I can't lie," Young said Friday by phone from Memphis. "I was a little more juiced up. I said to him, 'Don't bring that stuff in my house.' I blocked him twice. We were talking."

Blair couldn't be reached for comment.

So good.
