Memphis is definitely not playing like a #8 seed but playing more like a team that wants to make it to the NBA Finals. The Grizzlies have been extremely good at home. In fact, they are tied for the best home record in the NBA of any team since January 1st.

The Thunder should have won Game 3 on Saturday night and if they end up losing this series they may look back on the loss that cost them the series.  Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook really struggled in crunch time on Saturday as they combined to go 0 for 10 in the last five minutes of regulation and overtime.  Durant and Westbrook can be very good at times but they can also play poorly.  Westbrook continues to be a ball hog at times and he also is still turning it over way too much. Memphis outscored the Thunder 23-10 in the fourth quarter.  Memphis continued their success in overtime as they outscored Oklahoma City 15 to 7.  Zach Randolph was huge as he scored seven of his 21 points down the stretch and pulled down seven of his 21 rebounds.

It was thought that Oklahoma City would win this series but history is now against them.  When the home team wins Game 3 in a series tied 1-1, that team has gone on to win just over 70% of the time in NBA history. Here are the betting stats for Monday’s game.  The home team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The Thunder are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The Thunder are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Thunder are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The Grizzlies are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Monday games. The Grizzlies are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games as a home favorite. The Under is 5-1-1 in Oklahoma City’s last 7 games as a road underdog. The Over is 5-1 in the Grizzlies last 6 overall. The Under is 9-4 in the Grizzlies last 13 home games. The Over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings between the two teams.
