Yeah, that last foul call was bogus. I expected Memphis to hit OKC in the mouth though. They will dominate them in the paint all series long.

What's happening in this game is what I predicted in the other thread. Memphis has the defensive players do keep durant and Westbrook under 30 each while has the paint players to abuse OKC. Like I said. Other than the lakers Memphis was the worst matchup for OKC. Strong defensively where OKC is strong offensively while Memphis is strong offensively where OKC is simply ok defensively which is PF.

Still think it's a toss up series but I did think Memphis could win this series and they are showing as much.

He had to grow up and stop getting arressted. Once that happened his work ethic improved, he lost a lot of weight and became an all star

I know people will now wakeup to the fact this team is really tough. This is why I was watching the grizzly clipper game so intently along with the lakers/sac game at the end of the season. Didn't want to play this team in the first round and saw them as a tough matchup with OKC so I wanted them in their bracket.

We really were fortunate with our brackets.

:yes:

You seen the the same things I seen with this team and add to the fact that OKC's half court offense is suspect.

OKC is miami.

It's why I think both Boston and Memphis will be in the ECF an WCF

It's easy for me. The grizzlies are the lakers without a perimeter star. And like the lakers they will underperform record wise because they are built for the playoffs.

In the regular season the fast break and jump shooting teams overperform because the tempo is much faster while in the playoffs the bigger teams that run half court offense win because the playoffs are slower and those who practice half court all season are ready for it despite being out matched all season

This game is massive for both. For Memphis is makes them believe that they can really continue this run for a long time. For OKC after going 1-3 vs Memphis losing tells them Uh oh maybe Memphis is better

Memphis is a tough team. If they advance past OKC and we end up having them in the WCF, it's definitely not going to be easy. Marc looks like he'd tear Pau in half.
