In 2011, Game 4 was the turning the point of the series. Let's not give OKC the momentum of making this a series again. Win Game 4 and I think we win this series. Lose Game 4, and it gets kinda scary.

Can we please not give up a 4 point play this game which would result in a miracle for them to get the game to overtime?

 

Tomorrow the Grizz focus on how to defend the 3 pt shot without fouling. Great wins though but we should've won game 3 by 20.

You be quiet! We are 2-0 when those plays happen and 0-1 when they don't!

Yeah i hear ya, but we wouldn't have had to go to overtime if those plays didn't happen and we'd still be 2-1 in the series.

 

But maybe OKC getting beat in overtime will drain them mentally and the Grizzlies staying resilient in OT will keep them growing as a team. GO GRIZZLIES!!!!!!!

I just think we have to go up 3-1...being an underdog..you must get a really good head start and give ourselves multiple games to close them out

Wouldn't it be interesting if the Grizzlies win the series in 5 games just like last season when the team was lucky to win because Westbrook was injured?

+1, what will the media give as excuses? Probably just chalk this series up to okc missing shots and not the grizz playing their game and at our pace which frustrates the thunder beyond belief.

Yea Kerr would be smart to stay far far away from NYK job. HOU GSW and OKC are built to win now. I have no idea how Kerr is as a Coach. However, KD Westbrick and Ibaka in a triangle offense seems like a interesting fit.

Steve Kerr sounds like the ANTI-KNICK. The Knicks should throw a bunch of money at Kevin Ollie. He seems more like a Knick and is more likely to be a player's coach. If, Phil wants one of HIS GUYS who can run the triangle, why not make Scottie Pippen the top guy? He has as much coaching experience as Steve Kerr (ZERO), but he is a bigger personality and could really coach defense as well as the triangle. Guys would LISTEN to Scottie Pippen. For Pip's assistant coaches, Phil could go with Luke Walton (a Triangle guy with some assistant coaching experience) and Derek Fisher if he does indeed retire after this season. Then a certified veteran like Jim Cleamons. Cool, I actually googled Jim Cleamons to spell his name right, and it looks like he wants to join the Knicks organization. ... some combination of Pippen, Cleamons, and Derek Fisher makes more sense than letting Steve Kerr run the show. Kerr didn't play defense, didn't really run much of the offense either, and wasn't one of the main go-to scorers. Scottie Pippen was all of those things, PLUS he was on both threepeat editions.

I agree. Not to take any thing away from the win last night; but Durant and Westbrook missed more 3 point shots than usual last night. The Grizz were in their face on some of them. But quite a few of their 3 pointers were good open looks at the basket, and I counted several that went in and just popped out.

 

The Grizz can't count on BOTH Durant and Westbrook to keep missing as many 3 pointers and other perimeter shots as they did last night. The law of averages usually evens these things out.

 

We need to send the thunders back to OKC with the pressure of having to come back from a 3 to 1 deficit.

 

 

Also, Price got to many minutes of playing time last night. I don't care that much whether he starts or not, but imo he should get no more than 10 to 12 minutes playing time. He gives the Grizz almost nothing on offense.

 

He's still looks sick and when you combine that with his age, he is just to slow to keep up with trying to guard Durant effectively. I still think we should give some playing time to James Johnson. He looks to me to be as tall as Prince, and he certainly is quicker, jumps higher, and is more physical.

 

If Johnson starts fouling to much, or isn't doing a decent job while he's out there; take him out. But give him a chance to see what he can do. Just saying........

The color commentators were ready to go on a rant about Westbrook bring hurt until he started dominated in the 4th quarter ...they always want to give an asterisk, Blake griffin was hurt, cp3 was hurt, Westbrook didn't play blah , blah, blah...we are a better TEAM..I'll take our 9 against any 2

Don't forget the laying in waiting excuse that Durant turned his ankle last night.

Prince has held Durant to under 40% field goal percentage for his career. He makes up for his lack of offense with his defense in this case. Last night, he had a better +/- than Tony Allen or Courtney Lee, who are both being lauded for their efforts.

 

Last night was a slight aberration. Durant made 5 of 8 field goal attempts for 11 points (one free throw) while Tay guarded him. Durant also had three turnovers. Not Tay's best night, but that was only for a shade under 24 minutes. Each game, he has played longer, and the score differential with him on the court has gotten better each game (-11, -3, +4). He hasn't hurt the team.

Holding Durant to only 8 shots and one free throw in 24 minutes is pretty good.

C'mon Wells. That would hold water if Prince was playing at his average, but he isn't. The most we can hope for with Prince is that he holds the fort while he is in. Making a point with Princes career numbers would be a lot like a Nets fan making a point with Garnetts career numbers. They both are clearly on the very steep downhill sides of their careers. Not throwing stones at you but Prince is a shadow of the player that he was with Detroit. Father time has him in a headlock and he isn't letting go. The flat out truth is that if Tay was playing his career average for minutes per game, the Grizzlies would be down 0-3.
