Even a couple of months after the upset occurred, Memphis forward Shane Battier remains a little suprised the Grizzlies stunned the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs.

The Grizzlies' six-game series victory over the Spurs was only the second time since the NBA went to a best-of-seven series for all rounds of the playoffs that a No. 8 seed toppled a No. 1 seed.

And it still is a little bit of shock to Battier that it happened, he said in an interview with radio station WFAN in New York City earlier this week. (Hat tip to Sports Radio Interviews.com)

"We knew that we had a favorable matchup in the Spurs," Battier said. "Did we think we could beat them and take the Thunder in second round to seven games? I'd be lying to say I knew that was going to happen."

The Grizzlies had never won a playoff game, much less a series before their matchup with the Spurs this year. But after splitting four games with San Antonio earlier in the regular season, Memphis has confidence coming into the playoffs, Battier said.
