Marc Gasol elbows brother Pau in the face, scores, draws the and-1 (VIDEO)


It’s always a treat when brothers Marc Gasol and Pau Gasol go head-to-head. It’s like watching a pickup basketball game in a driveway, only escalated to a Hall of Fame level.

The Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs squared off on Saturday, with the two brothers again going at each other. There was one special play in particular, but before we get to that I want to take special time out to recognize one Grizzlies writer for calling his shot so perfectly that I can’t not point it out.

So here we go:

Hmm. Oddly specific.

Ok, let’s move on to the fourth quarter. Did anything interesting happen between the Gasol brothers?

Ah yes. That’s Marc Gasol whacking his brother in the face, Pau Gasol complaining about it, and Marc driving to the basket for the score and the foul.

The NBA truly is where amazing happens.
