Obviously, it was a combination for several reasons, Daigneultained answered the question of how the defeat has come about in this form: The Grizzlies played with great strength and tempo. They have hit some throws, we did not do well at the beginning and could never really get access to the game. Not a single part of the game.
The Thunder, only 32.9 percent of their litters from the field and 28.9 percent of Downtown, Memphis ran with a franchise the best value of 62.5 percent in field wages and 52.8 percent from the distance absolutely hot and achieved 29 points in the OUTBREAK, 82 points in the zone and 22 points after offensive books.
