Losers: 

Grizzlies bench shooting 3-15. 

Grizzlies as a team shooting 31.8% from the floor, 1-7 from three and just 6 total free throws in the first half.

O.J. Mayo with 2 points, 3 fouls and terrible defensive sets. 

Shane Battier.... AWFUL on offense. 

Tony Allen..... AWFUL on offense. 

Sam Young.... AWFUL on offense. 

Serge Ibaka has disappeared here with Nick Collison playing out of his head. 

 

The Grizzlies need better offensive sets and they need to contain Harden as he cuts to the hoop. Durant is taking his shots, which at times have been better in theory than in reality. This game is far from over, but the Grizzlies need to adjust and execute on offense. They also need to win the battle on the glass. That's a MUST!
