Jenni Carlson 3:42 p.m. Hey, everyone! We're about 20 minutes from tip of Game 3.
Jenni Carlson 3:43 p.m. Come join the live chat fun.
Jenni Carlson 3:55 p.m. Does anyone else think this 4 p.m. tip time feels weird? The one day no one has to get up for work the next day, and we have a 4 o'clock tip instead of an 8:30 tip. Weird.
Jenni Carlson 4:04 p.m. Magic Johnson just said that Serge Ibaka will never be a star. What do you think?
Jenni Carlson 4:04 p.m. Huh, guess I wasn't the only one who heard Magic say that ... ;)
Jenni Carlson 4:05 p.m. So, I guess the 4 p.m. tip was a lie. Looks like we'll tip at, what, about 4:10 or so?
Jenni Carlson 4:13 p.m. Reggie misses on the drive to the basket, but he needs to keep attacking.
Jenni Carlson 4:17 p.m. OKC needed to get some transition baskets today. Scored last time down in transition. Needs to try to do more of that today.
Jenni Carlson 4:19 p.m. Lionel Hollins not exactly happy with how things are going early for his team. The Griz look a bit sloppy.
Jenni Carlson 4:19 p.m. Grizzlies already have three turnovers. Thunder has none.
Jenni Carlson 4:23 p.m. Serge looked gun shy on that last possession. Didn't take shot when he first got the ball. Would've been more in rhythm than the one he ultimately took.
Jenni Carlson 4:24 p.m. Wow, the Thunder offense looks awful today. Whew.
Jenni Carlson 4:25 p.m. If KD isn't shooting or scoring in the half court, it doesn't look to be happening.
Jenni Carlson 4:28 p.m. Kevin Martin hitting his first shot = good sign for the Thunder.
Jenni Carlson 4:29 p.m. All but two of Memphis' 14 points have been scored in the paint.
Jenni Carlson 4:37 p.m. End of the first quarter, Grizzlies lead 22-18.
Jenni Carlson 4:43 p.m. Another shot clock violation? Huh.
Jenni Carlson 4:46 p.m. Thunder now with three turnovers while Griz still has five. Memphis has stopped turning it over while OKC has gotten careless.
Jenni Carlson 4:49 p.m. Wow.
Jenni Carlson 4:49 p.m. Suddenly, Memphis leads by 10.
Jenni Carlson 4:51 p.m. Cold blooded, KD. Cold blooded.
Jenni Carlson 4:56 p.m. Ibaka with two consecutive makes. Go figure!
Jenni Carlson 4:58 p.m. For as poorly as OKC has played at times, still only down four points.
