MEMPHIS, Tenn.-The Oklahoma City Thunder team charter has just landed in Tennessee, getting ready for game #3 of the NBA Playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The game is set for tomorrow night at 7:00p.m. at the FedEx Forum, affectionately known as “The Grind House” in this southern city.
The Thunder lost game #2 in overtime on their home floor Monday night, and now they have to try to master a Memphis team that has won 14 consecutive home games.
In fact, the Grizzlies last loss on their court came February 5th to the Dallas Mavericks.
If OKC is going to take a series lead, they’ll have to get much better performances from their second teamers – guys like Reggie Jackson, Caron Butler, Nick Collison and Derek Fisher to name a few.
The Memphis bench boys outscored the Thunder reserves 33-14 in Monday night’s victory.
The people are already hanging out here in Memphis outside the FedEx Forum and on nearby Beale Street.
It will be a crazy atmosphere when the two teams play Thursday night and again, in game #4, Saturday night here in Memphis.
