Former Cowboy, Griz Forward Tony Allen: “We Can Win In This Building”

After four games, the last three going to overtime, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies are tied 2-2 in their western conference NBA playoff series.

A big reason for the Grizzlies success, especially on the defensive end of the floor, is former Oklahoma State Cowboy Tony Allen.

Allen comes off the bench and generally draws the tough task of guarding the other team’s best player.

In this series case, Allen is defending Kevin Durant’s every move on the court.

How well has Allen’s defense been on Durant?

KD shot just 35% in games 2-4 in this series, with Allen guarding him, after shooting 50.3% during the regular season.

Watch above as Allen talks about Memphis’ ability to win inside the Peake in game five and his defense.
