This is certainly an NBA betting line that we want to get in on right now. The Thunder are favored by a three-pointer, but we just aren’t so sure that’s justifiable at this point. Let’s call it what it is: Memphis blew Game 1. The Grizzlies had a 10 point lead in the fourth quarter, and about the only way that it could have lost this game, it did. F Kevin Durant took over. Here’s the problem that we have with Oklahoma City, though. The team only had a total of 13 assists in Game 1, and Durant had six of the 13. That just isn’t going to get the job done. This team has to move the basketball if it is going to be able to beat such a great defensive team. Meanwhile, we know that the Grizzlies are going to shoot better than 58.3 percent from the charity stripe in this game, and had they done better in Game 1, they’d be up 1-0 instead of down 1-0 in this series. It really feels like Oklahoma City is just grasping at this point. There’s a reason that the Grizzlies were the slightly favored team in this series, and there’s a reason that they are going to win Game 2 and bring this series back to the FedEx Forum all level at a game apiece.
