Blitzbolt

No way I think Prince and others did an OK job.

We have to put Tony Allen on Martin period TA got no minutes in game one and that's what kill us.Make Durant go for 40+ shut the rest down.

I'm really happy for Kevin Martin. I know he's not what he used to be, but he's still one of the better scorers in this league. Thunder obviously REALLY need him to contribute in a major way and it's dope to see he's finally getting back into a groove.

Like the way the Griz are playing offensively. Can't let Fisher kill them from the 3 though.

As usual Gasol killing Perkins and anyone else who guards him. Perkins is so useless.

The Thunder game plan through three quarters:

Have Durant distribute and get some production from the role players for the first 7 minutes of the quarter.

Let Durant loose in the last 5.

MrfadeawayJB

I have never seen Prince playing this bad he needs to give us something.

MrfadeawayJB
05-07-2013, 11:57 PM
TA gets credit for his D but his movement without the ball and slashing is underrated

Kenny
05-07-2013, 11:58 PM

OKC gets a lot of calls in general. If they still had Harden forget about it.

bonesaw4343
05-07-2013, 11:58 PM

He's doing a really good job defending Martin though so it's not all bad

As soon as the offensive player gets a foot in front of you, it's over. Lay up or foul.

Good move by Marc.

MrfadeawayJB
05-08-2013, 12:03 AM
I would say that but DA was stupid to put the refs on that position

Guppyfighter

You are right. But in no way should he have been trying to strip the ball that far away.

Guppyfighter

Grizz offensive strategy is just rebound the ball after you miss.

See grizz shouldn't be in close game situations. If D is great and offense executes half way decent, games won't be so close. We got away from Marc. 0 fg attempts in the third after 17 pts at halftime smh

So KD doesn't make others better you say? :D

They were fine when RW was there.

If you delve 1 layer deeper, you realize that it's a product of having 2 players on the court that garner attention at all times. Having just 1 is apparently not enough for this cast of offensive misfits. Martin's capable, but he's heavily disappointing his organization here. That's even with Durant somehow turning into a 7+ APG forward and creating open looks for them. If I'm KD I am PISSED right now. Putting up peak LBJ/Jordan numbers out there, they've gotta step up.

When did you start having the funny hatred of OKC? Just don't like that they're the new top dogs in the West or?

Conley was shooting 39% and been pretty human overall coming into this, but when you get to play that many minutes against non Westbrook OKC point guards, we can expect a few more big games out of him. OKC looks absolutely terrible outside of Durant (and Fisher's 3 pt shooting, which has saved them a few times from total disaster).

It is fun to see just how much better KD is than virtually every other play in the league though, and just how important Westbrook is in having that 2nd option in the WC playoffs.

Grizz are a tough team. Before the series I had it going 6 for them, not sure we saw anything to expect anything differently.

And Conley is so damn underrated and never gets no love smh.

14.6/2.8/6.1 point with middling efficiency in the era of the point guard. I think he's respected and seen as a very good point, but he's not elite. One great game when the opposing points are Reggie Jackson and D. Fish won't go too far to change peoples minds there.

Mike Conley put up this numbers vs CP3 so the its vs Fisher and Jackson makes no sense.

He also put up 6 points on 1-9 and had two 5-13 nights against Cp3. Then there's the entire year/career of stats beyond that which show that he's not an elite point. He's really good, but I'm not big on getting caught up in 1 or 2 great games. Especially when the team is so well rounded on both sides of the balls and they can't afford to give Conley any extra attention. Not like he's putting that up in Steph Curry's double-teamed full games shoes.

Who thinks Derek Fisher made a mistake by intentionally fouling Conley?

OKC was only down 4 with about 30 seconds left, as opposed to being down 6. Yes, not fouling would shred more precious time off the clock, but worst case scenario is that Memphis scores 2 more (which they did anyway).

Best case scenario, Memphis misses, which would be more hopeful than being down 6 without the fast break advantage OKC would've had after a missed shot/turnover by Memphis.

OKC will not win it all this year. Durant got his 36, and you can interchange Fisher and Martin with around 20 points per night and it still won't be enough to make up for the loss of Westbrook. Unfortunately, this isn't OKC's year now.

This seems to be typical for Conley. Gets off to a slow start in the first games of the series and gradually breaks out of his struggles. First game and first half of game two were forgettable performances. He provided the Grizz with the perimeter play they needed and opened it up. If the Grizz are gonna go far it's on Conley's shoulders. They can't afford him to have those game 1 performances especially with Prince struggling offensively.

Kendrick Perkins currently has a PER of -0.3 !!!! I don't think I can remember someone being this awful starting for a team. Even Jermaine O'Neal's 2010 playoffs first round with the Heat was better!

He's averaging more turnovers than points.

He is basically the worst player in the playoffs right now. He can't guard Gasol to save his life. On the offensive end he just turns the ball over.

I Thunder continue to play him there is no way they can win the series.
