Default Grizzlies lose Game 1 of 2nd round to Thunder

Game 1 in Oklahoma City Sunday afternoon yielded a pretty simple synopsis: The Grizzlies made too many mistakes 10 missed free throws and more turnovers than made field-goals in the final five minutes and Kevin Durant was brilliant.
Ultimately, this game played, ridiculously, less than a day and a half after the Grizzlies and Thunder had polished off their first-round opponents felt like a combination of the Grizzlies' Game 1 and 2 losses against the Clippers. Like in Game 1 of that series, the Grizzlies played non-optimal lineups (Austin Daye and Keyon Dooling combined for 13 shaky minutes) and gave up a huge fourth quarter with an All-NBA defender (Tony Allen) mostly on the bench. Like in Game 2 of that series, the Grizzlies lost a close game on the road with a legit superstar (Durant) taking over down the stretch.
