Terrible game by kevin durant. Even if lebron hates america and takes steroids.he still attacks the rim.

I refuse to believe Durant doesn't have some kind of back to the basket game. A simple turnaround jumper, a jumphook, something. Why they won't put him in the post is beyond me. He has a serious height advantage on Battier and Allen and they'll have to double team which will open up shooters and lanes for players to cut.

I'm so glad Russell Westbrook doesn't play for a team that I really like. He'd drive me f@cking nuts.

He can't get the ball and just jack-up a long jumper as soon as he touches. He needs to attack the rim and get going.
Defense isn't doing shit. He just sucks at getting open. He sets a lazy ass screen that doesn't pin that defender, then he makes lazy, predictable attempts to come off a KP pin down and whoever is guarding KP gets into that passing lane and bumps him then he just gives up and stands around and watches Russ have to go 1 on 1.

A lot of blame has to go to him as well as to Scott Brooks for having no playbook.

So, Memphis who hasn't blown out OKC yet, but has been blown by the Thunder twice, is going to beat the Thunder by 27 on the road?

He doesn't seal his defenders behind him well enough. They steal or deflect the entry pass every time. If it's a lazier defender, then yea he does and has done it plenty. But guys like those 2 who will continue to push, grab, and lean on you, just standing there with your hand up isn't going to work.

Yeah, I agree. I love Kevin Durant, but he's not doing anything to help himself. Westbrook and Brooks have shouldered a lot of the blame this series but, at some point, Durant has to start taking some of the blame, too. Over the course of this series I've really started to think less and less of Brooks as a coach.

Let's go Grizzlies.
You can win this series.

But I also wouldn't have anything against OKC-Dallas series,it would be a choke contest

I don't know about you,but I love to watch choke jobs

Grizzlies win, 95-83! Series is tied 3-3. Game 7 is Sunday.

Zach Randolph had 30 points, 13 rebounds, 0 assists in the win

Russell Westbrook had 27 points and more turnovers than assists in the loss. And Kevin Durant was just 3-of-14 for 11 points.

The Thunder had just 29 points in the entire second half

I feel like Durant has seemed discouraged at times throughout this series... almost like he doesn't want to work for the ball because he doesn't think he's going to get it even if he does get open.

Westbrook forces too much.
