Research Notes

  • Marc Gasol gave the Grizzlies the defensive spark they needed on Saturday. With Gasol on the floor, the Thunder shot 31.1%, compared to 48.1% with him on the bench. Memphis was also 23 points per 100 possessions better than the Thunder with Gasol and 32.6 points per 100 possessions worse without him.

  • The Thunder had a poor shooting night, making just 36.4% of their attempts. In the first half, the Thunder got to the rim on 21 shot attempts, almost reaching their regular-season average of 26.4 attempts per game inside 5 feet. However, in the second half, they attempted 7 shots within 5 feet.

  • The Thunder and Grizzlies find themselves exactly where they stood two years ago - when Oklahoma City went on to win in seven games.
