Everybody that goes to Grind house must cheer all game... we must find something new to shout... for Clippers was Bit LA and Floppers... we need something. Maybe something for our team other than their team and just chant defense on them. Maybe a GRIT- AND- GRIND!!!!

Play TA on Durant for the final 2 minutes of the first 3 quarters, then the final 4 minutes in the 4th. I bet that alone wins us the game.

Only KD can stop KD. He's unreal.

Boy did OKC aka Sonics get a franchise player when they drafted Durant. Much like what the Duncan draft did for the Spurs.

I'll be there. I'm expecting thd sold out Grindhouse to be tooooo rowdy. Keep KD under 25 and this one is for sure ours. This series is our whole roster vs. KD...we got this.

Ugh, Saturday.

At least it's not a late game like most of the others have been. I stayed up a little later than I should have after last night's game.

I don't think we are going to hold KD under 25 ever this post season. He is to good. But holding him under 35 may be just as good...

Yo don't have to stop KD. We just have to stop everyone else. Durant almost had a triple double last night with 36 points and we still won.

As they get desperate, look for Thunder to go small, play Durant at PF and minimize Perkins time. I don't think it will work for them (because Durant is not a great 2 way player like LBJ) but it will be interesting to see how Grizz respond.

Keep on rollin baby! Welcome to the Grindhouse, where opposing teams hopes and dreams are shattered and Grizz Nation ROARS ON!!!

p.s. bring Wroten in again :) Love seeing his energy and enthusiasm out there, even if he does get a silly foul or make a mistake. Picking the Fish's gill sack last night was just awesome lol

Well we played 2 pretty ugly games in OKC, we blew one and I'd say stole one, If we can just play a solid game and stop making so many mental mistakes we should destroy them in the Grindhouse both games.. Can't wait for Saturday!! Beale St will be rockin!!

The grizz need to come out swinging like they did during game 3 of the flopper series. Establish their dominance early and never let up. The fans at the Grindhouse need to be ultra-loud, show OKC they aren't the only team known for a loud fan base.
