Memphis had a three game winning streak snapped against the Thunder. A Z-Bo layup after stealing the ball from Lauverge put the Grizzlies up by three with 2:51 left in regulation. However, they were incapable to control Russell Westbrook who scored the last 15 points of the game. The view from the enemy is built according to various Twitter sources and Oklahoma City Thunder SB Nation Blog Welcome to loud city GameThread.
Before the game
Question. Is Steven Adams unliked over there at Grizzly bear blues after that incident in the playoffs in his rookie year? Lol
Don't think my heart is physically ready to get ripped out by this Grizz team...
No Abrines, No Kanter tonight.
Like CJ McCollum, I just wanna trash Chandler Parsons every time I see him.
They've been setting Adams good in the paint.
We are outworking them on the rebounds.
I really hate Randolph.
Big news for the Thunder is the bench unit holding up nicely tonight. All starters not back yet, but best it's played since Kanter went down.
That is a way to finish the first half!
Ever since Anthony Morrow bust out the 1980s Jamaican Fitness Instructor headband, he's been stroking it like an A-list porn star #ThunderUp— Black (@Blacintosh004) February 4, 2017
Sabonis starting the 3Q was costly. Should have started Joff and then subbed Nick in for him when Zbo took the floor.
Marc Gasol is very good at basketball.
Before Chuck Norris goes to sleep, he checks under his bed for nick collison.
Another triple double from you know who. His 25th of the season.
Lauvergne staying out there over Sabonis right now.
Joffrey Lauvergne keeps drilling threes! Thunder down 1 point with 3:15 left in 4th.
Z-Bo just took Lauvergne's lunch money. That steal was so alpha.
Back-to-back threes by Westbrook!
Major MVP chants for Westbrook at the line.
Russell Westbrook just scored 15 points in the final 2 minutes, 35 seconds of a basketball game to give his team a win. That was impressive.— Fred Katz (@FredKatz) February 4, 2017
After the game
Gasol was sublime tonight. Adams had a good first half against him but that second wow! Gasol was just too good and nothing stevo could have done.
Major kudos to Joffrey Lauvergne for showing no fear from deep against an effective Memphis defense.
Russ fantastic closing and triple double , Adams 44 mins 15 pts,13 reb (11 off).
Honestly though... nobody is doing what 0 is doing this year... no one!
