During Friday night's 96 - 87 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, the Grizzlies mascot, Grizz, climbed a ladder on the second level of and splashed onto a fake version of his rival mascot, putting him through a table. Not even a 3 - 0 hole in their best of seven first round series can keep Memphians from chanting along to Terrence Howard/DJay's "Whoop that Trick" while a man in a bear suit does some extreme rasslin.

In all fairness, the Grizz (the team, not the man in a costume) were battling at the time, and did their fans proud with a hard fought loss to a great Spurs team.
Plus, Grizz (the man in a costume, not the team) throwing in the sign of the cross as a hat tip to Shane McMahon was a nice touch.
Speaking of hat tips, thanks to our old pal Brigade on Twitter.
And to see it with Jim Ross commentary (but sadly without him saying "That coyote has a family!"), head over to the SBNation mothership's version.
