Now, to the Grizzlies’ credit, they have had the upper hand, and not just because they lead two games to one. Memphis has had a small advantage most of the first three games. The Thunder led Game 1 for just four minutes, Game 2 for 15:36 and Game 3 for 7:05. That’s 144 minutes of hard-core basketball, and the Thunder has led for just 26:41. That’s a lot pressure to play under. Playing from behind is mentally taxing.
But the Memphis defense has kept the Thunder mostly under wraps. Don’t expect the tone of this series to change. It’s likely to remain grinder.
