MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Memphis Grizzlies fans are saying "thank you" to the team for a history-making season.

As the clock ran down in the last minutes of Game 4 against the San Antonio Spurs, the Grizzlies were down by 7. The final score: 93-86. The game was over, but Grizz Nation was still loud and alive.

"I enjoyed the games. Both teams played hard and it was great," said Grizzlies fan Steve James. "I'm glad to see Memphis made it to the finals."

Despite the loss, fans still showed their love and support to the Grizzlies with a standing ovation at the end of the game.

James said, "That's the way to treat people because I know they did the best they could."

"I'm not a fair weather fan, I'm a long term fan," said Ronnie Sneed. "That makes a big difference to me, they did a good job anyway."

Fan Millie Hollowell added, "Last year we only went to round one, we're a little bit further this year, we'll go a little bit further next year."

The Grizzlies have never made it this far. They won 56 games in the season and made it to the Western Conference Finals. They united strangers throughout an entire city with the love of basketball.

Sneed said it was definitely an electrifying season. "They had a real good year."

Fans know the Grit and Grind will be even better next year, and fans like Hollowell will always believe Memphis, "and always have faith and hope."
