Eventual adjustments: B. The Thunder eventually found Durant enough to make Memphis pay for having Young guarding KD. And Allen's physicality proved to be better suited to slow Durant than Westbrook.
First-quarter ball security: D. Nine Thunder turnovers in the first quarter. The only salvation was that Memphis scored just eight points off those turnovers.
Rest-of-game ball security: A. The Thunder committed just eight turnovers the final three quarters.
Free-throw defense: A. The Grizzlies made 37 of 40 foul shots in Game 4 but just 14 of 23 (60.9 percent) in Game 5. And that's despite making six of its last seven. Yep, early in the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies were 8 of 16. On a night when baskets were hard to come by, the Grizzlies needed a stellar night at the line.
