SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Zoo held a Spurs pep rally on Tuesday morning with two of the biggest and baddest cheerleaders they could find.

The Spurs will try to notch a second win as they take on the Grizzlies in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals at 8 p.m. And if the hippo demonstration is telling of tonight's game... Go Spurs Go!
