The Grizzlies blew a fourth-quarter lead for a third straight game. They last led 87-86 after Conley hit a step-back jumper. Then Durant hit two free throws with 1:02 left to put the Thunder ahead to stay, and Jackson sealed it with four free throws in the final 12.2 seconds.

Its going to be an interesting game. We aren't at "must win." But, its hard to imagine winning game 6 and then @OKC in game 7.

Its really going to be fascinating what comes from OKC Tuesday. KD will not play as poorly as he did last night and Russell probably won't either. Jackson probably won't play as well though. We will hit our free throws, weve been good at bouncing back at the free throw line. It will be another tight one though.

Its our turn to make an adjustment and I trust DJ to do that. Have to figure out how to get Mike free from their double team, but I kind of think we figured it out. We had 3 shooters out there, Conley, Beno and Miller and were getting open looks at 3. Thats when Conley began to break out.

Backs are against the wall, but this team is so resilient that I am still confident. Would not shock me at all though to say whoever wins game 5 wins the series.

Interesting series. Even if we lose game 5 and win game 6 we would still have a shot to win game 7. We looked better then the thunder this series. We need to make atleast 85 percent of our freethrows hit a few 3s and don't miss any layups and we'll win by ten.

I'm thinking the same way. (although I'm not as confident about our free throw shooting)

The Grizz averaged a .688% made free throw average so far in the playoffs. That's really not that good. However, playing at the Thunders home court, the Grizz probably won't get a whole lot of free throw attempts.

how the hell did this game get relegated to NBA TV?
3 straight OTs and they reward us by putting us off the network. I hate having to bootleg games. Considering skipping the game... SAD FACE :(

They want to televise the racist's team instead.

Really lets you know how seriously the league is taking the Sterling situation when they make their game the poster game instead of the Grizzlies-Thunder.

NBA is such a joke. So are the Clipper players. Sterling is a well known bigot (TMZ says he knew he was being recorded btw) but now that its on broadstreet they have to act like they care. At the end of the day this "controversy" is just going to fatten more pockets and they know it. So fake.

HUBIE BROWN - CLASS ACT!!! Every time they tried to bring it up during the Bulls Wizards game he would flat out not discuss it and change the topic back to the game and what was happening the game they were being paid to commentate.
