Seems like no matter what we play 5 point games against you guys. I was expecting them to hit a 3 at the end, and when Reggie fouled all I could do was laugh. I can't shit on him though. He's being thrown to the wolves and is performing well over all. It's going to be great next year to have him and Russ together.

I have no idea who will win this series, but still lean to the Grizz. As OKC wins without Russ their confidence snowballs. I think it's important for Memphis to take game 2. However, I don't see home court being much of a factor in this one. Both teams have won on the others court many times, and have won big games on the road in the playoffs. The best team will win that day despite location.

Definitely, good to take a game that Memphis had control of all day. Also good to watch a game without Brooks man crushes killing us. Perk and Fisher both need quality minutes in this series. Although, I never want to see either one of them near this team after next year

This is going to be another long hard fought series.
Grizz just didn't seem to have the same urgency they showed in the Clippers series. Despite having the lead, they settled for perimeter shots far too often, especially in the first half. It was as if they were content to just keep the game close in the first half. They came out and played more of their style in the 3rd quarter to get that double digit lead. Conley was aggressive, and they went to the post to initiate more often. Perkins/Collison/Ibaka were pretty good defensively, but you still have to start your offense there; it opens up standstill outside looks.

Defensively they were pretty awful most of the day relative to their typical performance. I actually think this might have been Hollins' worst game the entire post-season. They weren't doubling Durant, although there was a big there on most penetrations. But why do you drop the guard on the weakside to go with Prince and the big? The only way the Thunder beat you is if you let Martin get off, and you give Fisher open looks from 3. Griz allowed both of those things to happen, and they allowed Durant do whatever he wanted, except get all the way to the rim (which is fine with him). Meanwhile, Allen sat almost the entire 4th quarter despite protecting a lead. Asinine.
