Yea leading every quarter and 20 midway through 4th quarter was all luck. Actually Memphis got lucky Westbrook started chucking again. Seriously sometimes you would not believe the best scorer in the league is on court with the way Westbrook behaves.

Didn't watch the game. Did Perkins shut down Z-bo?

You can say what you want about the game tonight but Scott Brooks straight out-coached Lionel Hollins tonight. Adjustments, rotations, everything. That's why OKC won.

No, Collison did. Seriously.
I don't think it was a matter of coaching because everytime Hollins would call a time out he got his team to increase the defensive pressure and they usally always started to go on a run and push the ball inside. Hollins told them not to forget their identity and they kept fighting and pounding the ball in the paint and took a 20 point lead down to single digits.

More than anything bench production was the thing that won the game for okc imo.

The biggest difference is Gasol and Randolph didn't shoot like 75% combined from the floor. The Thunder did a better job of challenging their shots, making them pass or put the ball on the floor. Game 1 they were content to let them shoot from the outside and learned they can't do that.

If the Thunder can keeping taking away the inside stuff that Gasol and Z-bo get they will win this series. Conley & Mayo stepped up last night and it still wasn't enough. Memphis really wants to dominate the paint, and once you take that away, they really struggle.

I'm of the mind that the team that protects the paint will win this series. I know, not shocking, but I think it's that obvious.
