Royce Young

Well that was something else.

Royce Young

Westbrook's hand was forced on isolating there after Allen's ball denial blew up the play for KD. Still, don't take a 3 there. Attack.

Anthony Slater

Tony Allen's been the MVP tonight. Followed not so closely by Beno.

Darnell Mayberry

Before ANYONE blames Westbrook for that shot. Durant gave him the go-ahead after Tony Allen AGAIN blew up the play.

Darnell Mayberry

Mike Miller makes it look easy against the Thunder. Always has.

Darnell Mayberry

Not the first lead since the first quarter. Ignore that. My bad.

Royce Young

When the ball found Mike Miller's hands there, the collective scream of "NOOOOO" was incredible. Never heard anything like it.

Anthony Slater

Mike Miller - Thunder killer

Darnell Mayberry

It was so loud in here after that dunk by Durant that the ref couldn't hear Dave Joerger calling for a TO and he was right in front of him.

Darnell Mayberry

Thunder takes its first lead since 7:49 in the first quarter on a fast break dunk by Durant.

Royce Young

Perk turned and saluted the crowd after that lockdown of Z-Bo. Had a look of, "How do you like me now?"

Anthony Slater

Inefficient night, but he's usually there when you need him. Big three by KD. He's got 22 and 10. Thunder down 87-84, 3:33 left.

Darnell Mayberry

Give Perk an assist for that screen on Tony Allen that freed up Durant for a huge 3. Grizzlies 87, Thunder 84 with 3:33 left.

Royce Young

Good example of why it's beneficial to have Kevin Durant.

Royce Young

Hard to figure what the Thunder are doing defensively. Overloading the pick-and-roll, leaving weakside stuff wide open.

Darnell Mayberry

Has the feeling of a game that the Thunder will lose unless Russ or KD bail them out. And it doesn't seem like their night. Could change.

Royce Young

If you're wondering, Beno Udrih's career-high is 34.

Anthony Slater

Beno Udrih now with as many points (14) as the entire Thunder bench.

Darnell Mayberry

Run something maybe? Or nah?

Royce Young

Beno Udrih has 12 points on 5-6 shooting. I repeat, Beno Udrih has 12 points on 5-6 shooting.

Anthony Slater

Backup PG battle -> Beno Udrih: 10 points on 4/5 shooting. Reggie Jackson: 2 points on 0-of-5 shooting.

Darnell Mayberry

First points for Reggie Jackson come with 9:52 remaining...on free throws. He's 0-for-4. Not good for the Thunder.

Anthony Slater

Thunder down six. Reggie Jackson to the line. Hasn't scored tonight.

Royce Young

Ibaka just had a cramp and will return.

Darnell Mayberry

Durant goes into the fourth quarter with 16 points on 18 shots. #TonyAllen

Darnell Mayberry

Cramp for Ibaka. Available to return.

Anthony Slater

Serge Ibaka is fine. He cramped up. Will return.

Darnell Mayberry

This is the best defense I've see on Durant in a long while.

Royce Young

Grizzlies 68, Thunder 65 after three. Westbrook with 20, but Durant just 16 on 6-18 shooting.

Anthony Slater

End 3Q: Thunder trail the Grizzlies 68-65.

Darnell Mayberry

Tony Allen blows up ANOTHER play. This man is incredible.

Anthony Slater

Kevin Durant 5-of-16 from the field. Had a bad airball and then just flung a 25-footer, hoping for a foul. Out of rhythm.

Darnell Mayberry

Ibaka just asked for a timeout. Looks to have hurt his right leg. He's asking out of the game.

Royce Young

Serge Ibaka is shaken up. Light limp as he walks to the bench.

Darnell Mayberry

Man and the ball, KD. See your man and the ball.

Darnell Mayberry

Not sure about that call. Westbrook appeared to just make a great hustle play

Anthony Slater

Thabo Sefolosha finally hits a three. Had missed 12 straight, dating back to the regular season. That was a big one.

Anthony Slater

Russell Westbrook is a dynamo on the drive, but should probably abandon the three. He's 0-of-8 in the series and 6-of-29 in April.

Royce Young

Zach Randolph caught the ball on the block, and called a timeout. Serge Ibaka's shotblocking is in the Grizzlies' heads.

Anthony Slater

Courtney Lee to the locker room. Limping, but I'm not sure why.

Anthony Slater

Brooks should put Sefolosha on Conley, Westbrook on Courtney Lee.

Darnell Mayberry

Might be time to get Thabo on Conley.

Anthony Slater

Don't mind that first Westbrook three, don't like the second. No rebounders, early in the shot clock.

Royce Young

Courtney Lee is severely hobbled right now. Trying to play through it.

Anthony Slater

Russell Westbrook's numbers look great (17 pts/2 rebs/3 asts), but I thought he was poor defensively for stretches in 1st half. Gambling.

Anthony Slater

Not exactly a series filled with sharpshooting. OKC is 5-of-25 from deep, Memphis is 3-of-15.

Royce Young

Thunder shot just 16-42 (38.1 percent) and only 1-9 from 3. First half definitely played more to the Grizzlies style.

Royce Young

Grizzlies lead the Thunder 46-43 at half. Westbrook 17 and 3 assists, Durant 8, Ibaka 9, 6 rebounds and 3 blocks.

Anthony Slater

Grizzlies up 46-43 on the Thunder at halftime. OKC shot 38 percent overall and 1/9 from three.

Darnell Mayberry

At halftime, the Grizzlies lead the Thunder, 46-43.

Anthony Slater

Serge Ibaka having another big-time first half without any plays called for him: 9 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks.

Anthony Slater

Kevin Durant enters the game, Dave Joerger immediately calls Tony Allen off the bench to reenter.

Derek Fisher = Most Improved Player of the Year http://t.co/VU1NhIAJls

Royce Young

Serge Ibaka is trying to make a DPOY statement tonight. Holy moly mother.

Anthony Slater

Derek Fisher don't do right-handed layups.

Anthony Slater

Derek Fisher with the and-1 layup and bicep flex/pose.

Darnell Mayberry

Derek Fisher flexing on 'em.

Darnell Mayberry

Just one assist for the Thunder. No, shots aren't falling. But the ball isn't moving either. Could get easier shots by moving the ball.

Darnell Mayberry

After one, the Grizzlies lead the Thunder, 24-16. OKC shooting 26.3 percent. Memphis with eight fast break points. OKC with zero

Royce Young

The Thunder's first quarter in Game 1: 29 points on 12-23 shooting. The Thunder's first quarter in Game 2: 16 points on 5-19.

Anthony Slater

End 1Q: Thunder trail Memphis 24-16. OKC 5-of-19 shooting.

Anthony Slater

Tony Allen's been everywhere defensively. Taking over this game.

Royce Young

These guys are the halftime show in OKC tonight: youtu.be/uT3SBzmDxGk

Royce Young

Every coach talks about the defensive gameplan on Durant being to make him work. Most defenders actually don't. Tony Allen definitely does.

Anthony Slater

Better Vine of that Russell Westbrook dunk via @jabari_young -> vine.co/v/MnAwptjatjA

Anthony Slater

Thunder 2-of-12 shooting early. Down 14-8. Tony Allen enters and immediately impacts the game with his defense.

Anthony Slater

The most exciting empty possession of the postseason vine.co/v/MnAwhxttUFD

Royce Young

The Thunder have run that iso-screen thing Perk just did ALL year long and haven't been called on it once. Now Mike Callahan does.

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook has gotten really good at falling down with minimal to non-existent contact on his jumper. And getting the call.

Anthony Slater

Not sure why the Grizzlies would ever willingly run mid-post isolations for Tayshaun Prince on Kevin Durant.

Anthony Slater

Thunder 7-point favorites over Memphis tonight. Same as Game 1. Over/Under is 190.

Anthony Slater

Tony Allen on his bench role: "I’ll do whatever the organization wants me to do. If they want me to pass out water, I’ll do that, too."

Young girl just absolutely crushed the national anthem in her warmup, and all the players on the floor stopped to listen, then applaud her.

Serge Ibaka finishes fourth in Defensive Player of the Year voting. Joakim Noah (winner), Roy Hibbert and DeAndre Jordan finish ahead.

Joakim Noah wins Defensive Player of the Year. Roy Hibbert is 2nd, DeAndre Jordan finished 3rd. Serge Ibaka came in 4th.

Serge Ibaka

Game day… Please visit crowdrise.com/PlayoffsBlockP… and join me if u can in order to help children of Congo with @unicefusa #PlayoffsBlockParty

Darnell Mayberry

That was a horrible foul call on Dwight.

Royce Young

You know sometimes, you don't HAVE to make a call. Like it's not required for every possession.

Royce Young

Damian Lillard only has three fouls, but the next one on him, he fouls out. New rule this officiating crew just invented.

Royce Young

Ah, my favorite thing. When officials go to review a call and get to see how badly they blew it.

Royce Young

Damian Lillard is just so, so ice cold.

Darnell Mayberry

Grizzlies' lack of depth showed in Game 1 - okne.ws/1r6w8yF

Darnell Mayberry

Some national network needs to make room for Joel Meyers. Sooner rather than later.

Darnell Mayberry

Too many intriguing matchups in this Blazers-Rockets series. Way too many.
