May 1: Playoffs Round 2, Grizzlies at Thunder Game 1
 
The AP reports: The new kids in town are trying to take over the Western Conference. The Memphis Grizzlies already knocked out the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs and will now face the Oklahoma City Thunder in a series that ensures one of the NBA’s rising young teams will make it to the conference finals. The Thunder and Grizzlies were the league’s two youngest teams at the start of last season, then improved their win totals more than any other teams. That rapid ascent has carried both into the second round of the playoffs, with Game 1 on Sunday in Oklahoma City. “We’re both bad teams that have risen up and become good teams,” Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said Saturday. ” … Our transformations started the same way, and they actually were ahead of us. We’re here, and they’re here.”

The AP reports: Scott Brooks led Oklahoma City to a 27-win improvement last season—from 23 to 50—and was named coach of the year after getting the Thunder into the playoffs.

Let's get it!!

whoa, i didn't even realize there was another game on today. I've been seeing so much advertising for the BOS-MIA game and none for this one.

Sad that this game is in Miami/Boston's shadow. It's going to be fantastic. Let's see some Zee-bounds!

Man, theres only one band other than Led Zepplin that can do "Black Dog" almost as good....This would be a fail if it werent for Nicole Pussycat doll to look at.

This game feels like a college final 4 game with all these guys that are 21-24 years old.

LOL this old band, guys are in their late 40's. Guitarist gets as close to that guitar solo as u possibly can. They also have the sick timing that Led Zepplin has on the recording. They do weddings,block parties here.
