Justin Timberlake says not to count out his Grizzlies even if they go down 2-0 to the Spurs
CANNES - Justin Timberlake may be celebrating the critical acclaim of his new movie "Inside Llewyn Davis" which premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival Sunday evening, but he's still keeping tabs of how his Memphis Grizzlies are handing their first Western Conference Finals versus the San Antonio Spurs. The Grizzlies lost game one Sunday afternoon 105-83 and as a new investor in the franchise Timberlake told HitFix he's confident they can make it a series.
"We went two games down to the Clippers, so I'm not totally worried yet," Timberlake says. "I think we'd never beaten the Thunder in the playoffs and we did and I think that was a physically draining [series] and physically draining for me to watch. Even though it took less games to beat them. We have a scrappy team so I wouldn't count them out. Even if they go down two games I wouldn't count them out."
Timberlake says he'd like to be able to catch one of the remaining playoff games in person, but his busy summer schedule includes his current Cannes trip, a tour and putting the finishing touches on another new album, "The 20/20 Experience, Pt. 2."
The Grammy and Emmy-award winning talent and his wife Jessica Biel are part of an investment group spearheaded by Robert Pera which formally purchased the NBA franchise earlier this year. And, according to the Memphis native, it's been well worth it.
Timberlake adds, "That [investment] is by far the coolest passive thing I've ever done just cause I love the game and I love my town."
The Grizzlies go against the Spurs in game two of the series Tuesday night.
