Memphis Grizzlies (4-2, 1-2 road) vs. OKC Thunder (4-1, 3-0 home)
Series: Tied 0-0
View from the enemy: 3 Shades of Blue
(As you know, downtown Oklahoma City is going to be crazy with the Memorial Marathon today and the game. So be thinking about that if you’re going.)
Game 1 is pretty important for about a billion reasons, but also because the Thunder should have a big edge. The Grizzlies are only two days removed from their emotional win over the Spurs and with a noon start, may not be completely over it.
Then again, with the marathon, the early start in OKC and the rain (and thunder!) in town today, I’m worried the fans and team might be a bit sluggish as well. I’m playing mindgames with myself here. I’m nervous, OK?
Tip at 12:00 CT: Go Semifinals.
