Grizzlies with no basket outside of the paint .That's just unbelievable

Westbrook won't be happy till he shoots KD out of multiple titles.

Hardaway Here
04-19-2014, 10:48 PM
Welp this game is just too damn boring to watch. Grizzlies like seriously wtf. I don't care for either team but I at least wanted a good game.

kdspurman
04-19-2014, 10:49 PM
Why T up Tony Allen for that minor push in the back but not give him FT's with the contact from Ibaka? Tough no call. Nonetheless, Memphis needs to get some shots falling.

poleandreel
04-19-2014, 10:57 PM
Westbrook won't be happy till he shoots KD out of multiple titles.

Russell has easily outplayed KD so far this game. Better defense, better rebounding, more hustle, and a better fg%. STFU

torocan
04-19-2014, 11:01 PM
Durant and WB on fire. And the Grizzlies can't hit a bucket. That's just bad mojo.

Grizzlies are going to be out of this game pretty darn fast unless they find their shooting touch.

Grizz with a nice come back. Great way for them to start the half

MrfadeawayJB
04-19-2014, 11:22 PM
Grizz need to keep up the defense and let it lead to offense in transition

mzgrizz
04-19-2014, 11:22 PM
A little less nauseating to watch now :phew:

Westbrook is doing way too much dribbling the last few possessions.

Fourth quarter. Grizz bench needs to step up cause the starters are gassed

Scott Brooks won't make it to next season if Thunder lose this series.

poleandreel
04-19-2014, 11:45 PM
Memphis D was crazy that quarter. Credit them for the adjustments. We seriously can't play perkins, he starts 2nd half with 3 turnovers, 2 fouls, and awful defense.

We need to get Serge the ****ing ball. KD is chucking way too much, and Russell has to keep forcing shots at the end of the shotclock. Get serge the ball, and have KD drive. He is taking ******** step back awful shots.

another bogus call .

Watching Z-Bo and others in the paint and the contact there is, and nothing gets called. It's got to be frustrating.

Should've been offensive foul on ibaka, but hell thats thunder they are playing

mzgrizz

I am so glad I'm not being paranoid about the reffing!!! Thanks for the validation, guys. This is so pathetic that the OKC Thunder can't win it outright

kdspurman

No.

Seems they're getting plenty in their favor to me. :shrug:

The officials are letting 1 team be more physical than the other.

Yes, Memphis 23 FTA, and OKC 25 FTA.

beyourself
04-20-2014, 12:00 AM

No. Durant has only been fouled once to go to the line. And Tony Allen has been handchecking him all game.

Yes, Memphis is being allowed to be more physical otherwise OKC would be winning by 40 now.

I can get that stat off any sports app

kdspurman
04-20-2014, 12:02 AM
No. Durant has only been fouled once to go to the line. And Tony Allen has been handchecking him all game.

He's also shooting a lot of jump shots though. I guess the difference is minimal contact gets a whistle for him whereas the Grizz aren't getting the same calls in the paint when there is more contact. Especially watching like Randolph vs Collison

mzgrizz
04-20-2014, 12:03 AM
And so it goes

I know what you are saying and I understand, but the NBA has changed the rules. Handchecking is illegal and is supposed to be enforced pretty tightly and it's not this game.

Hope Conley is OK

He's been on a bum ankle for a couple of games; thanks. We surely should roll over and play dead if we lose him

04-20-2014, 12:09 AM
Am I paranoid, or does it seem like Westbrook considers himself the #1 guy and is frustrated when Durant proves to be the actual #1?

04-20-2014, 12:12 AM
At one point the Grizz pull to with in 2 and the Refs step up and thwart the comeback good job refs your doing a great job umm what's the foul shot difference in the 4th qrt alone hmm that's what I thought. What's being called a foul on one end isn't on the other...

04-20-2014, 12:13 AM

TylerSL

The officiating collectively killed the momentum of the Grizzlies in this one. We are just finishing our first day of the playoffs and the refs have been the story in 2 of the 4 games. Nobody could touch anybody in Warriors-Clippers and Memphis get called for 8 or 9 fouls in the first 6 minutes of the 4th when they only committed 15 fouls in the first 3 quarters.

MrfadeawayJB
04-20-2014, 12:26 AM
Silver lining for grizz is that the team that LOST game 1 has gone on to win the series the last two times between these teams

sunsfan88
04-20-2014, 01:44 AM
I said this before when the Grizz beat the Suns and I'll say it again...the Grizzlies playing style of holding, shoving, hand checking etc simply won't work in the playoffs against NBA darlings like Durant.

If they play within the rules, they will have a chance.

Well that would be unfortunate because that's not real basketball
