NBA Predictions: Oklahoma City Thunder @ Memphis Grizzlies
Date: Monday, May 13th, 9:30 ET
Location: FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN
NBA Betting Odds: Memphis -4.5
Thunder vs. Grizzlies NBA TV Schedule: TNT
The Grizzlies are rather unfortunate to only be up 2-1 in this series, but with the way that this one has gone, there is a legitimate gripe that either team could be up 3-0. Within the last three minutes of all of these games, the losing team was no further apart than just one point from the team that ultimately won the game. One would figure that the team with F Kevin Durant on it would be able to win these games that come down to the last few possessions. Though we all obviously know that Durant has the ability to get his shot whenever he wants it, and he can hit a shot from anywhere on the court, the half court defense for the Grizzlies has ultimately gotten the job done. Oklahoma City’s defense flat out isn’t as good as the Memphis defense, though that isn’t an indictment on the Thunder by any stretch of the imagination. The Grizzlies have made this series as ugly as they have wanted it, and the second half of Game 3, in particular, was very ugly. The good news for Memphis is if the series stays like this, there’s a good chance to win this game and this series. The bad news for Memphis though, is that it’s darn near impossible to win a game like this by more than two buckets. Thunder bettors were very unlucky in Game 4. They’ll at least get luckier in Game 3.
