Massively nice win last night. So underwhelming to be a Thunder fan when they air went out of that building.
Good work L Train! Good work Tony Allen. If our defense is this tough on 'em 2 games in, it can only get harder for them to run their plays.
Looking forward to it.
It's been so great watching Marc and ZBo work over Ibaka, Perkins and....Thabeet. Ibaka is only decent post player in the bunch and his defensive skills start and stop with blocked shots. I'm so glad Scott Brooks doesn't seem to realize that Nick Collison is clearly their best option against ZBo. Marc and ZBo are outplaying Ibaka, Thabeet and Perkins on both sides of the court. For a second there, they tried to put Durant on Marc and he roasted him. I love it.
It's a joy watching Tony is in full Tony Allen mode at the end of games. Flying around the court, getting to 50/50 balls first and generally creating havoc.
I'm ready for Saturday.
Think Brooks might play Collison more if Westbrook wasn't out. The Thunder need more scoring options on the floor to take pressure off of Durant.
Anything less than an NBA Finals appearance by the Grizz and I'll be disappointed. They are the best team in the West with Westbrook out.

I hope you're right. Honestly, I didn't think they would get past the first round, so this is all icing on the cake for me.
I don't think they match up very well against the Spurs this year. Oddly enough, I think they match up very well against the Heat. All season, I thought if they could get past the Clippers and Spurs, they would be at least even money with any other team. Even if the Thunder had Westbrook, I think it would have been a coin-flip series---like 2011.
I really think Golden State is going to beat the Spurs. Crazy.

Wow. That game was a nightmare. The Spurs ball movement ate the Grizzlies up. Too many open 3s for the Spurs. Not enough ZBo.
I just hope it was yet another horrible Game 1 and not a sign of things to come in the series.

I kind of expected a loss though I didn't expect that ass whooping. Spurs have a ton of WCF experience and it's the Grizzlies first ride so I figured we'd see some jitters. ZBo will get back on track and the Spurs won't be able to keep shooting it that well from 3-point land. Game 2 is huge though. Pretty much a must win for the Grizz.
Spurs stopped making shots, still have too much Tony Parker out there. Better showing.
Spurs lost, what, 6 games at home all year? Game 3 and 4 are must wins. Not a surprise to lose to 'em in SA.
Parker got tired. We got back into the game.
This is how the Clippers series started, too. Just sayin.
PS fuck Jeff Van Gundy.

Tony Parker continued the clinic he started in game one, 18 assists is crazy..http://i.minus.com/iHCupB3ftfy3N.gif
Maybe the Spurs got pissed that everyone had the Grizz pegged for the finals before this series even started. Sure doesn't look like that now, but I think we win both games in Memphis and it becomes a best out of three.
Yeah, screws get tighter, shots get harder to make. Not desperate at all right now, just gotta keep winning at home and keep up that defense of the 4th quarter.

Hahaahaaa. I guess ya gotta dream til the bitter end. Keep the hope alive as long as the delusion will allow. The grizzlies are just like the city they're from, they can almost get there but not quite. Goodnight griz. You had a good run. It's over.
grizzlies are legit. trolls are showing up everywhere and they are skerrred
Hey, Grizzlies are in the last 4 teams playing for the NBA Championship. Not bad at all.
Grizzlies are in the last 4 teams playing
That's my point. With Memphis it's always final four then out the door whether it's the grizzlies, tigers or whoever. Mark Gashole farting across the basketball court getting Memphis hopes up right before the big epic FAiLL.
YAW NO ITS 2RU!
What team of yours has been in the semifinals lately? you sound like a Lakers fan.
I'm just takin' the piss out of ya. The griz did good this year. I'm proud of 'em.
