NBA Playoff Schedule 2011: Is Tonight's Game a Must-Win for the Thunder?
NBA Playoff Schedule 2011 Gives Us Another Game in the Thrilling Thunder-Grizzlies Series
How in the world can these two teams top Game 4?
After an amazing triple-overtime game between these two teams, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies will take the court in a pivotal Game 5, and after all of the energy expended, you have to wonder what's going to be in the tank at this point.
With the series shifting back to Oklahoma City, this is a must-win for the Thunder. You do not want to head on the road for an elimination game, even if you have Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook on the roster.
This is where the Thunder have to put the pressure on the Grizzlies and force them to respond in an elimination game.
We saw in the first round that Memphis can respond to heartbreaking losses and Oklahoma City cannot afford to have the type of start we saw in Game 4. This is a game where the Thunder have to be tone-setters and have crisp offensive sets.
I don't want anymore of these awful isolation plays with Durant and Westbrook. If I'm Scott Brooks, I get James Harden on the court early and often and run the offense through him. Harden is such an unselfish player and he always seems to make the right decision with the ball.
If you're bored by the series between the Bulls and the Hawks, tonight's slate is going to be one to sit back and enjoy, capped off by this epic series and we should have a good one tonight, with the Thunder winning and forcing the issue.
