Memphis Beat The Thunder
In a matchup of Western Conference teams that had a playoff feel to it, Gasol tipped in Zach Randolph’s miss with less than a second left in overtime Wednesday night to give Memphis a 90-89 win over the Thunder.Gasol was so excited about the winning basket that he dropped a not-suitable-for-television expletive in the live postgame interview.
“I saw Zach going baseline and just went for the rebound and got lucky with the tip,” Gasol said. “It’s an emotional game. It’s a team that we like playing against, and a team that knows us very well. It was a gritty game.”The excitement carried over into the Grizzlies’ locker room, from which whoops and hollers could be heard in the hallway.
I personally would like the Thunder to make it to the finals but if the Memphis Grizzlies move on I would be disapointed. The Thunder is my second favorite team, first being Magic, so it would be nice for them to win. Also I would like the Spurs to move on as well.
