    Hey guys I hear Oklahoma State has a pretty good football team. Can we talk about that instead of continuing to let me embarrass myself and look like a complete jackass? Please? I don't like losing :(

    Saw something earlier, when Ibaka came off the bench during free throws the ref handed him the ball and let Ibaka kiss/sniff it before tossing it back to the shooter. WTF??

    He does it all the time. No idea why.

    Is there someone in the Memphis front office that we can bribe into getting rid of Gasol? I'm getting tired of that sweet turn hook shot he has.

    Ibaka is a new model blocked shot terminator. He must first acquire the scent to track and destroy the basketball as it is launched towards the hoop.

    haha. Surprised the Refs would let him obtain the ball scent before letting the shooter finish their free shots.

    The bench has really stepped up this game. There is no way I would believe that we would be up by 24 with only 30 points total by Russ and KD. Also we are killing them on the boards (46-27).

    Only one Memphis player even in double figures. Randolph has 9 points. Amazing.

    This is exactly what we needed. A soul-crushing win.

    Yep. I really thought this would go to 7 games, but man what a momentum swing. I'm going to go ahead and pick the Thunder to take the series in Memphis on Friday.

    This is a lot easier to get over than game 4. I fully expect Memphis to be ready to play come game 6.

    I hope you're right, but I have a feeling this one is going to go 7. Memphis was exhausted tonight. I think they play much better at home in game 6, then game 7 is like game 5.

    Follow the grizzlies back to their den for the win. If the bench goes crazy again Thunder can rest a few people.

    Ibaka takes the ball after every free throw and smells it, then gives it back to the ref. He says it keeps him hungry for the next play. He fights hard for those rebounds too, even after one shot of two.

    The Serge-Protector had a few nice blocks last night.


    I give the Player of the game award to Nick Collison for Defense on fat-ass Zach and for making the small plays that save possesstions, getting the put-backs, etc.

    Guy is absolutely a veteran who knows how to win.

    Collison has been solid on Randolph every time I've seen him matched up with him, especially in that marathon game 4.

    Collison may well be the MVP of this series.

    I would say Collison has earned the MVP of the series. Without him, I don't think we win.
