The Grizzlies only have seven turnovers in 53 minutes of pay. That's an amazing stat in a big playoff game.

Amazing how for Zach the whole Knicks era seems so long ago, come a long way. I really do see them representing the West in the Finals.



Randolph was a guy I always wanted the Lakers to get.

He pretty much auditioned for the team every time we played Portland and even one game made threes all over us lol and he wasn't a three point shooter.

Z bo is always a guy I wanted as a Laker, but the Grizz won't let him go.  Even to pair the Gasol brothers.

I'm not so secretly happy the Thunder are on the verge of elimination.  I hate Kendrick Perkins, really don't like Westbrook and there's something about Durant that bothers the living hell outta me.

 

Good to see Memphis, who runs a similar team to the Lakers do as well as they are.

probably the fact that he gets a pass for every mistake he makes never gets blamed for losses and always is praised

Well,he knows now how Kobe felt in crunch time in those seasons with Kwame and Smush.

there's something about Durant that bothers the living hell outta me.

Couldn't agree more. I don't know why,everybody love this kid,but there's something about him that makes him so annoying.

Isn't it amazing how all it took was one injury for the Thunder despite all that depth and favoritism to be compared to that team ;)

Series should have been over already if the Grizz didn't choke away game 1. 

 

It will be interesting to see how the Thunder react to being on the ropes.

If the Grizz play their own pace, they almost always win the game. Things just seem to go their way. Nice to see a well-coached team play.

Miami is the best team at dictating their own pace, so I don't know how well the Grizz would do. They could definitely guard them, they have th right personel. Lets see if the Grizz can come out the west, I'm definitely rooting for them.

Or probably that Durant is doing silly commercials that Lebron used to do before he got serious.

Without Westbrook its just not it with that OKC team. Glad they are going anyway.

Spurs and Heat can have some injuries OKC with injuries is just a middle NBA team

He wants take all shots even when he is slipping off its feet.

He cant carry the team without Westbrook. Just not that MVP player like Anthony, Lebron or Parker who really take there team to another level

anthony is a great player

but no way he takes his team to another level, his scoring does

 

when hes off, they most likely lose

A Memphis / Indiana finals would be a disaster for the NBA.

 

The NBA playoffs are already low on the popularity list, having two tiny market teams like that being the championship qualifiers would be downright terrible for the league.

Bad for the NBA, great for basketball.

For basketball fans maybe, but for the casual viewer and the bulk of the people that tune in, it would be an out and out disaster for the NBA.
