Very interested to see how our players come out in Game 5. Will they be relaxed knowing Game 6 will be in Memphis or will they go balls to the wall and close it out?

 

I think they end up playing a little too laxed, but I hope I'm wrong. I would love to close this out so our guys can get some rest.

I think some credit has to be given to Tayshaun Prince. Sure he hasnt been scoring and has been terrible offensively, but he's played some good defense on KD and all around.

One game at a time. Grizz and Thunder have played 4 times. And all of them have been wars right up to the end.

 

I don't see that changing. The only thing for sure is that the first team that gets 4 wins advances.

Agreed. Prince has played excellent defense on KD. And tonight, he made some important shots.

 

The next game, we do need to close this out. There's no reason to allow OKC to take this to 6. This was pretty much their best shot. Sure, it's in their home, but we've already stolen 1. We can steal 2 from them. We must do this to give ourselves rest for the winners of Golden State/Spurs. We'll need alot of juice to hang with those guys.

We need to trash this place up! Grizz needs to be focused and keep in the game! No time for partying or celebrating JUST yet! Remain focused be glad and great you won that's fine but don't go overboard and lose focus on this game. Many said we needed this win (including me) but we also need Wednesday's win (or should I say tomorrow) as well. Being in OKC's house this will be a hard fought battle and I expect "Loud City" too live up too it's name.

I think we win this one, we played excellent against clips game 6 for the close out, although it was at home. Come out swinging and keep grinding and have a nice long break after we win. Stay focused and play like we are down 3-1.

People keep complaining about Prince not shooting but I want to see a stat that shows what the percentage of made baskets on plays that he passes up the shot that leads to a made basket in the post season. It's great how willing he is to look for that better shot in the set rather than chuck it up there.

So thunder changed defensive matchups with Thabo on Mike. He still scored 24 points. I think the Thunder have exhausted all their options. Their best overall game was yesterday and we still managed a win. I don't think we had one complete game yet. We had a lead and lost it or trailed big and regain it. We need to maul them at their house. I'm pretty confident we can. We need to shut their crowd out early like Miami did with Chicago. We will have a long rest when we win Wednesday.

Barkley called us the team to win the West: " They are going to the Finals"... Make it; "Barkladamus" calling it once again; I'm so excited with our chance to win it all. Must take it the way it is.... it's a war and prior our sucess nobody believed in us. BELIEVE MEMPHIS.

Totally agree. Some needed bench help in game 5. Finish them.

Marc looked like he was in pain during the press conference last night. Sure hope he's ok for game 5.

Marc would play even if he had his arm cut off. And he would still look comfortable doing it. I wouldnt be to worried about him playing or not. I would worry if we had to extend this series to 7 games. I want them to be able to rest for the winner of the GS/SAS series.

I agree rest is important. They need to get this one. However, I am concerned....has anyone else noticed that the demeanor of the players after the game last night was different from Saturday post game? They seemed to sigh and be happy....almost content. They said all the right stuff (one game at a time) but Saturday they were still in workmen mode (no one was smiling). I hope they do not lax on the grit and grind tomorrow night.

I think we can stand to lose this game. Its so hard to beat a team 4 times in a row, especially two series in a row. If we lose tomorrow there is no chance we lose in Memphis for Game 6 though

With Durant, there is always a chance. That's why the team gotta take care of business Wednesday. You never want to give a player like Durant the opportunity to smell blood.

you gotta take all 3 shots to win this series. Game 6, if it comes back, will be as tough as 4.

The Thunder are a very talented team. They can win three straight games just as easily as they fell in a 3-1 hole. Memphis needs to play their game and take care of business or they will find the pressure on them instead of the Thunder.

 

Also, there was a good article written over at RealGM.com about the series and the idea of a closer.

Their backs are against the wall so we know they're going to come out with more tenacity than any other game this season. We need to be level headed and take care of business. This will be the toughest game of our season until this point. The bench needs to show up. I'm predicting a big game for QPon well need his corner 3s

These guys r pros.......they r not letting up thinking that they can get one back in Memphis. They will battle and if they do lose game 5, it won't be because they thought to relax.

Well, after tonight's blowout, it looks like there's a pretty decent chance we'll be matched up with the Spurs in the WCF. When I watch them, it's almost hard to understand how the Warriors have even made it this far. They're gameplan in general seems pretty simplistic, they've got no offense if Curry is off (which was the case tonight) and they're defense looks nonexistent at times. And perhaps worst of all, they seem like an incredibly immature/inexpereinced team (which they are). Careless turnovers throughout the game and just foolish mistakes. Take this stat for example: the Warriors have 166 turnovers in the Playoffs so far: many of those were crucial in the last few minutes of close games. The Grizzlies, in comparison, have only 98 TOs. From every angle, GSW just does not look like a legit contender. I think they got a lucky draw with a short handed DEN team in the first round. Without that, they'd be at home right now.

The Spurs will be a great battle...won't be fun to watch for outsiders tho...have to handle business against the Thunder first.
