Best playoff series so far.

Durant if you don't stop whining like a b**** after every play, you're going to get lumped in with Dwayne Wade.

Fish beats the buzzer with the 3.

Which did not help, because the Grizzlies were leading by 9.

I wasn't able to catch the game.

Can anybody explain to me how old man Fish scored more points than Kevin Martin and Reggie Jackson combined?

Tony Allen on KD >>>>>> Prince on KD ...length doesn't bother Durant ... you have to defend the lower body ( same as Dirk) ... plus these traps Grizz did on KD were money ... Allen got such quick hands , you are in trouble .

Conley with the big performance ... I don't see OKC winning at Memphis .. Grizz in 6

My thoughts too. He got it in a nice spot too, it's not like they forced him way out.

He could have put the ball on the floor and made a move to the basket or taken a J.

Maybe scared of the moment? If so, just adds more fuel to the fire of Kobe Bryant.


Only that it has nothing to do with Kobe.

You're right Kobe has never been scared of the moment.

Fisher did stat pad a 3 to the end the game. But overall, he's been playing extremely well this playoff run. It seems like any open shot by Fisher is automatic. He got a few open corner 3s that he drained with ease. He's been playing solid defense too. I think I even remember Fisher hitting a fadeaway jumper over Gasol. It has just been an overall bizarre thing to watch.

Anyway, Durant definitely needs some help. He's been basically doing everything he can possibly do. It sucks for him, but this is probably as far as he can go.

And I definitely agree with wcsoldier81 and Frank Dux on Tony Allen's defense. I think he's been bothering Durant much, much more than Prince.

Grizzles should be up 2-0 right about now. I think they just have a great coach because despite losing Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo they're still a really good team and can play with the best of them.

Terrible player. Slow as molasses and the only thing he does is foul and set illegal screens, and the relatively few times he gets a whistle he's beside himself at the nerve of the ref.

I still can't believe that they went hard at Harden in contract negotiations because money was tight when they had this bum eating up cap space.

Over $20M poured into your starting big men and you cant bring the ball up the court and dump it off into the post and have them go to work? Seems like a solid investment to me.

Going to be interesting to see the decisions on Martin and Porkins this summer from OKC FO ...

I would look for a reliable and cheap backup center ( obviously Thabeet can't play) and use the amnesty on useless Perk ..

OKC can get away with starting Collison at the PF and Ibaka at the 5 against most teams in the league

Didn't catch the game. How did Marc and Z-Bo do?

Did Memphis lead for most of the game or just pulled away late?

Pulled away late. It was a very close game.

Gay and Mayo did provide a sizable scoring punch for Memphis which was I was skeptical of the Grizzlies getting past the Clippers. To fill that void so far, others have stepped up such as Conley and Poindexter. Gasol's game also improved on offense whereas Randolph gets more touches. Bayless has replaced Mayo nicely. Prince is a stabilizing presence on the floor and is still a very heady defender.

One thing I really don't get is how reluctant both Del Negro and Brooks have been to double the post ...

I would say both suck at coaching ( something I really think) but you can't be clueless as a pro coach , can you ?

Grizz have little outside shooting , I would double Z-Bo/Marc off Allen/Prince on a consistent basis...

That's the reason I think SAS would advance if they face Memphis in the WCF ... Pop won't let Z-Bo/Marc beat them
