Kerr also claimed to be unaware of the constantly changing narrative as this Western Conference Semifinals series between the Warriors and Grizzlies plays out. The latest is that the Warriors, said to be in trouble entering Game 3, have gained a big edge by winning that game. "It's chatter, 24 hours of chatter," Kerr said. "I don't know any of this. Honestly, I don't read anything during the playoffs. That's why I didn't know about Monty." CSNBayArea.com

All weekend the big shots have seemed to bank in. Derrick Rose was first. Paul Pierce followed suit. Marc Gasol wanted in on the action. This wasn’t the game winner, but his shot to beat the shot clock banked in and was the dagger in the Grizzlies’ 99-89 win over the Warriors. This was the shot that was the final nail in Golden State’s coffin for the night and put Memphis up 2-1 in the series. NBCSports.com

“When they talk about the Bruce Bowens, Dennis Rodmans and Michael Coopers, I want them to remember my name, too,” Allen said. “I’m not just playing this game to be average. I want to be elite. I think I am, and I’ve proven it this year. It’s alright to be acknowledged; nothing wrong with that.” ESPN.com

“Memphis can respect a guy who’s real, authentic,” Allen said. “I ain’t no carbon copy. They embrace hard work. It’s a small market. People in this city work 9-to-5 and put on their hard hats. I come out here and try to give them back the kind of work ethic they take to those jobs every day. I leave it all on the court. They might think I’m crazy sometimes, but they love me and what I do. So I love them, too.” ESPN.com

Allen’s confidence in his defense is never shaken. But when asked entering the playoffs if there was any player he felt had gotten the better of him this season, he didn’t hesitate to drop a familiar name. “Klay Thompson,” Allen said. “I felt like I wasn’t engaged. I don’t have any excuses. I pulled a hamstring that game and just wasn’t locked in. But Klay Thompson is definitely on my radar from now on.” ESPN.com
