    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Seven

    No doubt, Kevin Durant was special Sunday. In the biggest game of his NBA career he remained undaunted through a slow start and hit 11 of his last 16 shots on his way to 39 points. He played smart, used back-door cuts to get easy baskets, and once he got rolling everything fell. But that’s…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Like the have not before these playoffs, the Oklahoma City Thunder asserted themselves in Game 5. They dominated the Memphis Grizzlies. Controlled the game from the middle of the second quarter on. Held Zach Randolph to 9 points. Thumped the tired Grizzlies good. Was that a one game fluke, or have the Thunder arrived? If…

    Oklahoma City Thunder Russell Westbrook drives to the basket by Memphis Grizzlies Marc Gasol and Shane Battier in Memphis

    Game 4 between the Grizzlies and Thunder was exhausting. For me, as a fan, sitting on a couch. I can’t imagine what it took out of the players. And for a crucial Game 5 with the series tied 2-2, that is where the questions start — who is going to have the most energy? Mental…

    Thunder's Durant gets a pat on the head from teammate Perkins after their Western Conference NBA basketball playoffs against the Nuggets in Oklahoma City

    We only hear about the players-only meetings that work. They happen plenty around the NBA — the Cavaliers had them during their record losing streak — and they don’t usually work. But when they do, those meetings get a disproportional amount of credit. That brings us to the tale of Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Durant,…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    The Thunder needed a win on Tuesday night, and they got one, 111-102 over the Grizzlies. The Thunder got out to an early lead against the Grizzlies and never looked back, and were able to prevent themselves from having to go into Memphis facing an 0-2 deficit. The key to the game was the Thunder’s…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Memphis has become something of a mythological team. Beating them suddenly sounds like a task of Herculean proportions, where one must battle a seven-headed hydra and Zach Randolph. Nobody — not even the legendary Tim Duncan — could slay the beast. But the Oklahoma City Thunder are supposed to have the tools. They are supposed…

    Thunder's Durant gets a pat on the head from teammate Perkins after their Western Conference NBA basketball playoffs against the Nuggets in Oklahoma City

    Memphis was impressive in knocking off the Spurs. Make no mistake, they found their mismatch and exploited it — they pounded the Spurs inside, which opened up chances elsewhere. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol were beasts the Spurs could not stop. Memphis, now meet Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka. Oklahoma City brings a serious front…
