In typical fashion fans are making this mess about the referees. It's not
Good play by Vince Carter. Been making those little vet plays all series. 85-75 Grizzlies after 3.
Calathes has taken Beno's place at the table and is eating all his food that the Blazers guards have prepared him.
Don't know what Meyers has to do to get in right now over Kaman who can't even move.
Conley in the locker room. Nick Calathes is the last healthy Grizzlies PG
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
Nick Calathes vs. Damian Lillard should be a mismatch.
Looks like McCollum caught Conley in the face/cheek/eye with an errant elbow.
Looks like something on Conley's face, not the foot, which is good news for Grizzlies. Going to back.
McCollum got Conley in the face on that loose ball. He's going to the locker room.
Mike Conley helped up -- must have taken an elbow to face. We'll see Nick Calathes, at least in the short term
Conley appears to have been hit in the face… holding towel to face.
Just saw the replay and I still don't really know what happened to Conley. He's still down.
Michael Conley down on the court. Team is out and around him.
This does not look good for Conley. Writhing in pain.
Michael Conley is hurt. Down on floor.
McCollum caught Conley in the face or something.
Conley has played 24 minutes already. Looking like foot is getting better.
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.
Tonight’s second-half question: ZBo and Chris Kaman play a game to 11… how fast does ZBo get to 11?
Just way too many off-the-ball fouls being called, on both teams.
Robin Lopez has 4 fouls and is lucky he didn't get a tech as he walked off. He was letting Bill Kennedy know.
4th on Lopez. Stotts goes to…Kaman.
4 on Afflalo.
Batum's shot on so far -- 4-5 from 3, 12 points
Batum opens the 2nd-half scoring with a three. He's 4-6 from field, 4-5 from deep, with 12 pts.
Batum 4 for 5 from 3 now.
Season on the brink. Blazers down 13. 2nd half begins.
Of Grizzlies' 23 field goals, 15 have been the paint. No wonder they're shooting 57.5 percent.
62-49 Grizz. Dame has 14. CJ has 10. Batum has 9 on 3 3-pointers. Grizz +7 on the boards.
38 points in Q2 for Memphis.
Grizzlies have already taken 12 free throws, making 11. They had 9 free throws the entire Game 1 (18 in Game 2).
Half: Memphis 62, Portland 49. Grizzlies 62 first-half points is most in seven games vs. Blazers this season.
Blazers committing obvious fouls in an attempt to be more physical. That isn't how you do it
RoLo losing his cool. Aldridge missing easy ones. Blazers falling apart at the end of the half.
Lopez with 3. Kaman on one leg coming in for the last 1:09 of the half.
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.
When Memphis needs one, they go to Gasol on Lopez.
Blazers are better when Damian Lillard plays like Damian Lillard
You know Z-Bo has changed. He passed in the paint, see?
We know Neil Olshey will fight… now, who else?
Neil Olshey told refs a thing or two about what he thought was a flagrant by Vince Carter, to no avail
Neil Olshey hopped up after that Carter foul on the break. Please send me the GIF
Neil Olshey up and pointing at ref after that call.
Memphis is 7-11 in the quarter and Gasol and Randolph haven't played yet. Koufos and Calathes doing work.
3 on Afflalo. CJ comes in.
Aldridge breaks the ice. Now 1/8 with the layup.
LA breaks an 0-7 rut with a layup off a post move in the paint.
During the review, Aldridge took and made like 10 practice jumpers at elbow. Finally erases goose-egg with that post basket.
LaMarcus with a make. He’s 1 for 8. Needs to get to the rim.
Aldridge finally on the board.
When you are 0-6 from the field maybe a three isn't the right shot
That was a Scott Foster production, by the ref who brought us goaltending call on Aldridge in '12.
Aldridge getting in some warm up jumpers during the review.
LaMarcus Aldridge, 0 for 6 from floor, is shooting practice shots with the game ball during official review.
They're going to review that to see if it was flagrant.
Jeff Green goes 1 on 5, draws foul. That's rather unbelievable
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.
CJ McCollum, with 8 points tonight, has doubled his playoff total.
CJ McCollum really providing good ammo for the "role players play better at home" theory. He leads the Blazers with 8 points.
After an unsuccessful post-up attempt by Afflalo on Calathes, he shakes out his right shoulder and grimaces.
Memphis has already blocked four shots
Aldridge now 0-6
LA shots a 19-foot airball J ... and is 0-6 from the field tonight.
No love for Meyers Leonard tonight. Two shaky calls.
Refs got it out for Meyers tonight, man.
Aldridge is also taking Green defensively. Meyers on Koufos.
