It's nice there is a blind judge, but Bernard dominated the last 10 rounds of that fight.

Grizzlies are just running out of gas after that third quarter.

Eli Savoie

Well at least they made it fun and gave us a reason to keep drinking and watching

Chris Herring

I get that defense isnt why hes out there, but Mike Miller's defense the last 3 mins has really killed Memphis's comeback hopes.

Royce Young

My guess: Westbrook needed a little cool down phase after running a little too hot in the third.

Amin Elhassan

I give Fisher crap all the time, but THAT PASS....thats exactly what need to be done

This week, where literally nothing went right, can’t end soon enough……

Thought for a second Fisher was going to try and go dunk that one.

Tony Mejia

Marc Gasol doesn't have his usual rhythm, and it doesn't look like OKC is going to let him find it. Swarming. Key going forward minus Zack.

Solid Caron Butler dunk, but not as good as this one he had on Chris Kaman: youtube.com/watch?v=RgqCsY…

That Caron Butler dunk was one of the most thunderous, impressive dunks that also just barely cleared the rim. The fall down adds drama too.

Mike Prada

Caron Butler dunked, then fell 10 feet backwards afterwards. Flew a little too close to the sun.

That was the best old-man dunk since Andre Miller in 2010.

Biiiig spot for Ed Davis. I’m not sure I’d trust him in this spot, but Joerger does.

Royce Young

Ed Davis checks in at 9:52 in the fourth for Randolph who picked up his fifth. First sub of the second half for Memphis.

Z-Bo with five fouls and the last two have really raised eyebrows

Anthony Slater

Five fouls on Zach Randolph forces Dave Joerger to make his first substitution of the second half.

Brian Windhorst

Grizzlies have made an incredible comeback here in OKC but Dave Joerger hasn't made a sub in 2nd half yet.

Chip Crain

Has it ever happened that all four road teams won on the opening day of the playoffs?

Mark Montieth

Just for the record, contrary to some retired scribes, West didn't say there's no communication among players. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Royce Young

Dave Joerger starts the fourth with his five that started the third, and played that entire quarter. Hasn't subbed this half.

Ronald Tillery

End of 3Q: Griz claw back to within 69-65 behind defense that held Thunder to 3 of 16 FG & forced 5 TOs. OKC had 5 TOs the whole 1st half.

Rob Mahoney

Durant + Westbrook in the third: 1-for-9 shooting, three points, three turnovers.

Anthony Slater

Memphis in the first half: 12-of-48 shooting, 34 points. Memphis in the third quarter: 14-of-24, 31 points.

Justin Verrier

Chandler Parsons and his legion of fans totally traveled.

Great 3rd quarter but the starters played every minute. At some point the bench will need to come in and carry the momentum forward

Winner of this series is team that cuts bait with its weak link (Prince or Perkins) first.

Eli Savoie

This is exactly why I don't normally do Grizzaster warnings in first half.

Jeff Caplan

This is why #Grizzlies and #Mavs desperately wanted No. 7 seed to matchup with fluctuating #Thunder instead of precision #Spurs.

Jimmy Spencer

Wow, those grittin'-and-grindin' (cue Montell Jordan R&B song) #Grizzlies are now just 4 points behind the #Thunder after 3 quarters.

Erik Gundersen

Marc Gasol is so beastly right now. Memphis' D is beautiful when it's on.

Jeff Caplan

Basketball's a funny game. Griz score 34 in 1st half, 31 in 3rd. OKC 5 TOs and 3 FGs in 3rd. Total reversal. 31-13 3rd makes 69-65 OKC.

Darnell Mayberry

Memphis outscores OKC 31-13 in the third period and holds the Thunder to 3-for-16 shooting in the period to pull within 69-65. 4th Q ahead.

Chris Vernon

Royce Young

And just like that -- in less than five minutes -- Grizzlies trim OKC's 22-point halftime lead to nine.

Chris Mannix

What do Shawn Porter, Ruslan Provodnikov and Ray Beltran have in common? All @MannyPacquiao sparring partners. Sessions must have been tough

Anthony Slater

Energy level not there for the Thunder to start the second half. Grizzlies on a 16-4 run, have cut the lead to 10.

Mike Prada

First “THERE YA GO” of the game.

Peter Vecsey

IP season ticket holder: Popeye Jones tried 2 encourage Hibbert outside huddle during Q3 TO. Roy slapped Popeye's hand off & scowled at him

Marcus Thompson

What's Klay thinking in this post-game interview? instagram.com/p/m_wyT3oxns/

Royce Young

Grizzlies halfcourt sets are night and day from first half to second. Lot more movement and action. Great adjustment by Joerger.

Chip Crain

And another stop

Dwain Price

After what I've seen so far, I don't know if the #Mavs want to play the #Thunder.

Chip Crain

6-0 start to the second half including two straight FTs!

Jarrod Rudolph

Win, lose or draw the guy @PaulMalignaggi gets my respect for showing such class in defeat.

Chris Palmer

What is Perkins doing?

Chris Haynes

Rockets Dwight Howard defends James Harden's subpar defense, tells @CSNNW he wants him focused on dominating #Blazers csnnw.com/blazers/dwight…

Matt Steinmetz

LAC also may have problem with J. Crawford. Iguodala can defend him but not sure about vice versa.

Marc Stein

So we're to believe Indy would be better off if Horford were playing so Roy would have more natural matchup? Al too good to co-sign that one

Benjamin Hochman

It's 3-1 but it feels like it's 5-1

Darnell Mayberry

Tony Allen starting the second half in place of Tayshaun Prince (illness), who played just four first-half minutes

Gary Lee

Based on everyone’s responses, it looks like it was Blake’s game winner over Dwight and the season being over. Ha. bit.ly/1eO5Qz2

Ronald Tillery

Tony Allen starts 2nd half. Prince (illness) will not return

Chip Crain

No big surprise here but not one Grizz player had a positive +/- number in the first half

Chris Mannix

Porter fights like a mini-Mike Tyson. He just lunges in at you, firing power shots. A very entertaining fighter.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Rick Fox on @nbatv on Pacers: "I don't think they've accepted that they've become a poor basketball team... I need panic."

Sean Highkin

“Come Get it Bae” is really annoying.

Chris Mannix

Wow. Shawn Porter stops Paulie Malignaggi in the fourth. Just four rounds of punishment for Paulie. A very impressive performance for Porter

Matt Steinmetz

So you have to ask: why play Collison when he can't guard Klay and can't score, either?

Tom Haberstroh

Memphis 1-19 FG outside the paint. Fewest FG in a playoff first-half since ORL vs. BOS 5/16/10.

Benjamin Hochman

Weirdo goalie heads to the bench
