I went from laughing at Sergio to now feeling absolutely terrible for him.
Spurs aren't looking very Spurs-like so far in OT.
Just so everyone knows, the Bogut play wasn't reviewable under replay rules. A call has to be made on the floor one way or the other first.
How an official can know a guy's tendency for flopping (ahem, Manu) and still reward them when they do it is beyond me.
FOREVER MY LADY.. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MAMA. http://t.co/ruZvVhZXt1
Scott Brooks said some variation of "we just got to make shots" at least five times in his 10-minute session with reporters this morning.
I continue to find it really stupid a coach or player can be fined for being mildly critical of officiating.
Anybody get their moms something nice for Mother's Day??

Another cartoon pic
Serge Ibaka only had 9 games the entire regular season he shot under 40% from the floor. He's done that 4 times since Westbrook's injury.
Thunder fall in Game 3 87-81. Durant wit 25-11-5, Reggie Jackson 16 and 10 rebounds. OKC shot just 36.4 percent.
Final score: Grizzlies 87, Thunder 81. Memphis takes a 2-1 series lead. Game 4 is Monday night at 8:30 p.m. on TNT
It's 81-81 with 1:31 left when Reggie Jackson unwisely charges over Conley. That play feels very large.
Man, OKC really messed up this final 90 seconds.
Scott Brooks subbing purely by performance. Perk (0/4 FG), Thabo (0/4 FG) and Collison (1/4 FG) didn't earn right to play right now.
The Thunder have corrected everything wrong from Game 2, except they can't make anything. Shooting just 35.4 percent right now.
OKC stays small with Randolph and Gasol on the floor. KD checking Gasol, Ibaka on Randolph.
Therein lies the secret to going small. If you go small, you MUST score.
Memphis has scored 22 points in each of the first three quarters.
Song blaring in the arena during timeout: "We don't bluff."
One thing you've got to credit Ibaka for: He's not taking his offense to the other end. Still defending at a very high level.
Collison for Ibaka. Pronto.
Serge Ibaka has just lost all confidence. He was near automatic on those open midrange jumpers this season.
Marc Gasol shooting two free throws and still argued with ref. Apparently he wanted four free throws.
Strange clear path call there.
Okay, THIS play, I mean.
Guarantee the Thunder run a pindown or pick-and-pop or something for Ibaka on their first possession this half.
Kevin Martin got treatment on left knee at halftime. No big deal. "I'm old," Martin said with a smile.
Serge Ibaka's postseason before missing that final shot in Game 4 against Houston: 22-38. After: 20-58. Coincidence, or something more?
At halftime, the Thunder leads the Grizzlies 45-44. Kevin Durant has 16 points, three rebounds and four assists on 6 of 8 shooting.
Thunder (somehow) lead at the half 45-44. Durant with 16 (on 6-8 shooting) and four assists, Martin and Jackson each with nine.
Serge Ibaka can't do anything right. At this point, I'd be surprised to see him successfully execute a simple high-five.
So much for that.
Serge Ibaka has now made his last three shots.
Whenever @KDTrey is defending a guard, they're going right at him, trying to draw a foul.
Ibaka's first bucket comes with 7:28 left in the first half. Ibaka, Perk and Sefolosha now 1-for-10.
BREAKING: Serge Ibaka makes basket.
Durant going back and forth with a fan next to Lil Wayne as he ties his shoe.
KD, take every shot the rest of this game. Every one. I think I'm serious.
Wow, Ibaka. My goodness.
Serge Ibaka has missed two dunks. When it rains it pours.
Nick Collison just got called for an offensive foul for pivoting with the ball in his hands. Alright then.
Kevin Durant went 3-4 for eight points in the first quarter. The rest of the Thunder went 4-18 for 10 points. That's a problem.
Thunder only turned it over twice. Grizzlies didn't score off either. Thunder didn't give up an offensive rebound or second chance point.
Horrible shooting quarter for the Thunder. But OKC was terrific in the two areas that cost it in Game 2: turnovers and defensive rebounding.
After one, the Grizzlies lead the Thunder 22-18. OKC shooting 31.8 percent. Kevin Durant & Reggie Jackson have made five of the seven shots.
Thabo, Serge and Perk a combined 0 for 8. Everybody else is 6 for 8.
It's basically, unless Kevin Durant completely makes it happen, the Thunder's starting five can't score.
Ibaka, Perk and Sefolosha now 0-for-6 from the field.
Love Reggie Jackson's assertiveness. He's set up Perk and Ibaka for three great looks.Two were misses. One led to foul shots.
Great help by Perk. He doesn't step in Conley has a layup.
Thabo starts on Conley.
Z-Bo with Ibaka on the floor this series: 39.1% shooting, -1.6/100 possessions. Z-Bo with Ibaka off: 80.0% shooting, +26.3/100 possessions.
Ibaka: "I’ve been shooting all season a good percentage so I will not stop. Every time I’m open I will shoot, and I will play my game."
Ibaka has been solid on Randolph in spite of his poor shooting. Randolph has scored 33 points on 28 shots. Ibaka said that's his main focus.
Also, Serge Ibaka said he remains confident despite scoring 16 points on 6-for-22 shooting in Games 1 & 2. Said he'll keep shooting.
Two things: 1) Brooks said Thabeet could play a few more minutes today. 2) Sefolosha could see more time on Mike Conley.
Officials for Game 3 in Memphis: Ken Mauer, Ed Malloy and Tom Washington.
