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.

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

Anthony Slater

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

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."

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.

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

Anthony Slater

Per Thunder, Russell Westbrook went to the locker room late in the third quarter to change his jersey. Had blood on it.

Royce Young

Westbrook: "As a point guard, my job is to set the tone. And I didn't do a great job of that to start the third quarter."

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook sits down at the podium and says, "Haven't been up here in a long time."

Royce Young

Mike Conley: "We were embarrassed in the first half, quite frankly."

Royce Young

Joerger asked about Tony Allen's decent offensive night: "Yeah, they don't guard him."

Royce Young

Dave Joerger on if his guys ran out of gas in the second half: "No question."

Royce Young

Brooks on Westbrook going to the tunnel/locker room: "Russell, as far as I know, is fine. This is the first I've heard of it."

Darnell Mayberry

Brooks on Westbrook: "Russell, as far as I know, he's fine."
