Video: Grizzlies Coach Lionel Hollins Shoves Former Blazers G Jerryd Bayless During Game 4

ESPN

Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins shoved reserve guard Jerryd Bayless during the fourth quarter of a Game 4 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals on Monday.

Memphis Grizzlies coach (and former Portland Trail Blazers guard) Lionel Hollins shoved Grizzlies guard (and former Blazers guard) Jerryd Bayless during the fourth quarter of a Game 4 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday.

The two exchanged words after Hollins pulled Bayless from the game and an assistant coach had to intervene.

Hollins played in Portland from 1976 to 1980 and was a member of the Blazers' 1976-77 title-winning team. Bayless spent the first two seasons of his career -- 2008-09 and 2009-10 -- with the Blazers before he was traded to the New Orleans Hornets.

The Spurs went on to win 93-86 to complete the four-game sweep and advance to the 2013 NBA Finals, where they will face either the Miami Heat or the Indiana Pacers.
