In typical fashion fans are making this mess about the referees. It's not

Kerry Eggers

#Grizzlies lead 85-75 after 3Q. No sign of, or word on, the situation with Mike Conley

Erik Gundersen

Good play by Vince Carter. Been making those little vet plays all series. 85-75 Grizzlies after 3.

Kerry Eggers

Hand it to #Grizzlies. Great passing and finishing on backdoor plays and cuts to basket

Erik Gundersen

Calathes has taken Beno's place at the table and is eating all his food that the Blazers guards have prepared him.

Ben Golliver

Video: Grizzlies' Mike Conley departs after taking elbow to the face from Blazers' CJ McCollum youtu.be/4f_hyB8ArZo

Kerry Eggers

Didn't on that 3, did he? @calarcoyoga: @Kerry Eggers @CJ McCollum if lillard can stop Calathes

Erik Gundersen

Don't know what Meyers has to do to get in right now over Kaman who can't even move.

Kerry Eggers

' @CJ McCollum having nice offensive game with 14 pts, but his elbow to Conley's face might prove to be biggest play of game

Mike Richman

Conley in the locker room. Nick Calathes is the last healthy Grizzlies PG

Joe Freeman

Mike Conley leaves game and heads to locker room with 4:03 left in the 3rd Q. Looked like he was hit in the face by CJ. Grizzlies lead 74-64

John Canzano

Nick Calathes vs. Damian Lillard should be a mismatch.

Mike Richman

Looks like McCollum caught Conley in the face/cheek/eye with an errant elbow.

Mike Tokito

Looks like something on Conley's face, not the foot, which is good news for Grizzlies. Going to back.

Erik Gundersen

McCollum got Conley in the face on that loose ball. He's going to the locker room.

Kerry Eggers

Mike Conley helped up -- must have taken an elbow to face. We'll see Nick Calathes, at least in the short term

John Canzano

Conley appears to have been hit in the face… holding towel to face.

Mike Richman

Just saw the replay and I still don't really know what happened to Conley. He's still down.

Amy Schwartz

Michael Conley down on the court. Team is out and around him.

Mike Tokito

This does not look good for Conley. Writhing in pain.

John Canzano

Michael Conley is hurt. Down on floor.

Erik Gundersen

McCollum caught Conley in the face or something.

Mike Tokito

Conley has played 24 minutes already. Looking like foot is getting better.

Joe Freeman

After that ice cold first half, LA has made 3 of 4 shots to open the second half. He now has 14 pts on 4-14 shooting.

Mike Richman

RoLo is mad RT @bruceely: @Mike Richman wish I could tweet what he's been saying. Very lucky no T.

Amy Schwartz

Positive: the red jerseys are fire. Negative: everything else. #Blazers

John Canzano

Tonight’s second-half question: ZBo and Chris Kaman play a game to 11… how fast does ZBo get to 11?

Mike Tokito

Just way too many off-the-ball fouls being called, on both teams.

Mike Richman

Robin Lopez has 4 fouls and is lucky he didn't get a tech as he walked off. He was letting Bill Kennedy know.

Kerry Eggers

#Blazers getting into a bit of foul trouble. Lopez, Afflalo have 4 apiece

Erik Gundersen

4th on Lopez. Stotts goes to…Kaman.

Kerry Eggers

#Grizzlies start 3Q 1 for 7 and #Blazers make up only one point. Memphis leads 66-54

Mike Tokito

Grizzlies have started second half 1 for 6, but #Blazers not taking full advantage.

Kerry Eggers

High on life, bud RT @hot_trash: @Kerry Eggers are you high? He's a 1st half player if there ever was one

Kerry Eggers

Batum's shot on so far -- 4-5 from 3, 12 points

Joe Freeman

Batum opens the 2nd-half scoring with a three. He's 4-6 from field, 4-5 from deep, with 12 pts.

Sean Meagher

Batum 4 for 5 from 3 now.

Erik Gundersen

Season on the brink. Blazers down 13. 2nd half begins.

Kerry Eggers

#Blazers have one half now to save their (post) season

Mike Tokito

Of Grizzlies' 23 field goals, 15 have been the paint. No wonder they're shooting 57.5 percent.

Erik Gundersen

62-49 Grizz. Dame has 14. CJ has 10. Batum has 9 on 3 3-pointers. Grizz +7 on the boards.

Sean Meagher

38 points in Q2 for Memphis.

Amy Schwartz

End of the 2Q: #Grizzlies lead the #Blazers 62-49. Lillard with 14 points, McCollum with 10 points, Batum with 9 points.

Joe Freeman

Halftime: Grizz lead #Blazers 62-49. Dame has 14 ps, 3 as, Batum has 9 ps, LA is 1-10 from the field. Conley has 12 ps, 4 as, Lee has 10 ps.

Mike Tokito

Grizzlies have already taken 12 free throws, making 11. They had 9 free throws the entire Game 1 (18 in Game 2).

John Canzano

Half: Memphis 62, Portland 49. Grizzlies 62 first-half points is most in seven games vs. Blazers this season.

Dwight Jaynes

Blazers committing obvious fouls in an attempt to be more physical. That isn't how you do it

Erik Gundersen

RoLo losing his cool. Aldridge missing easy ones. Blazers falling apart at the end of the half.

Kerry Eggers

Nobody is having a more miserable time in 1H than @LaMarcus Aldridge, who is 1 for 10 from field. Good thing he's a second-half player

Mike Tokito

#Blazers about to go into halftime trailing for 7th consecutive game. They lost previous 6. Last halftime lead was April 8 vs. Minn.

Erik Gundersen

Lopez with 3. Kaman on one leg coming in for the last 1:09 of the half.

Mike Richman

Conley hits a three when Lillard goes under the screen. Problem is if Dame chases him over the top Conley is going floater him to death.

Erik Gundersen

When Memphis needs one, they go to Gasol on Lopez.

Dwight Jaynes

Blazers are better when Damian Lillard plays like Damian Lillard

Mike Tokito

If you take out Aldridge's 1 for 8, rest of #Blazers are shooting 57% from field.

Joe Freeman

Dame: 12 pts, 3 asts, 5-6 from the field, 2-3 from deep. Memphis leads #Blazers 50-44 with 3:13 left in 1st half.

Kerry Eggers

#Blazers still in this despite @LaMarcus Aldridge being out of rhythm. Needs to hit 1 or 2 to get into a groove

Joe Freeman

Much better 2nd Q for the #Blazers, who are 7-11 from the field, 2-3 from deep. But Memphis just answers everything. So, so tough.

John Canzano

You know Z-Bo has changed. He passed in the paint, see?

John Canzano

We know Neil Olshey will fight… now, who else?

Kerry Eggers

Neil Olshey told refs a thing or two about what he thought was a flagrant by Vince Carter, to no avail

Mike Richman

Neil Olshey hopped up after that Carter foul on the break. Please send me the GIF

Kerry Eggers

David Joerger gave Gasol & Randolph a long rest and #Grizzlies actually increased lead

Mike Tokito

Neil Olshey up and pointing at ref after that call.

Amy Schwartz

When Paul Allen is up yelling, you know it’s bad. #Blazers

Mike Richman

Memphis is 7-11 in the quarter and Gasol and Randolph haven't played yet. Koufos and Calathes doing work.

Amy Schwartz

I see you, 300 level. #RipCity #WithWes http://t.co/KifdambO3u

Joe Freeman

Spotted: Ex-Blazer @Channing Frye is in the house tonight, sitting in the second row along the baseline.

Kerry Eggers

That's one of the few times in the series @Damian Lillard has had a clear path to the basket

Erik Gundersen

3 on Afflalo. CJ comes in.

Amy Schwartz

Aldridge breaks the ice. Now 1/8 with the layup.

Joe Freeman

LA breaks an 0-7 rut with a layup off a post move in the paint.

Mike Tokito

During the review, Aldridge took and made like 10 practice jumpers at elbow. Finally erases goose-egg with that post basket.

John Canzano

LaMarcus with a make. He’s 1 for 8. Needs to get to the rim.

Sean Meagher

Aldridge finally on the board.

Dwight Jaynes

When you are 0-6 from the field maybe a three isn't the right shot

Kerry Eggers

Stotts innovates further, uses 3 guards with @Damian Lillard, @Steve Blake and @arronafflalo

Mike Tokito

That was a Scott Foster production, by the ref who brought us goaltending call on Aldridge in '12.

Mike Richman

Aldridge getting in some warm up jumpers during the review.

John Canzano

LaMarcus Aldridge, 0 for 6 from floor, is shooting practice shots with the game ball during official review.

Erik Gundersen

They're going to review that to see if it was flagrant.

Kerry Eggers

Jeff Green goes 1 on 5, draws foul. That's rather unbelievable

Joe Freeman

After going 4-21 from field in 1st 2 games of series, McCollum is having a nice night. Has 8 ps in 7 mins, is 2-3 from field, 1-2 from deep.

Mike Tokito

CJ McCollum, with 8 points tonight, has doubled his playoff total.

Mike Richman

CJ McCollum really providing good ammo for the "role players play better at home" theory. He leads the Blazers with 8 points.

Joe Freeman

After an unsuccessful post-up attempt by Afflalo on Calathes, he shakes out his right shoulder and grimaces.

Dwight Jaynes

Memphis has already blocked four shots

Kerry Eggers

#Blazers trail only 32-26 despite 0-6 shooting by @LaMarcus Aldridge

Joe Freeman

LA shots a 19-foot airball J ... and is 0-6 from the field tonight.

Joe Freeman

No love for Meyers Leonard tonight. Two shaky calls.

Erik Gundersen

Refs got it out for Meyers tonight, man.

Erik Gundersen

Aldridge is also taking Green defensively. Meyers on Koufos.
