The Thunder have been ousted by the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies’ grit-and-grind wore out Oklahoma City. In the end, Memphis is moving on and the Thunder are out. Memphis imposed its basketball style of grit-and-grind on the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder couldn’t run and gun like they did against the Houston Rockets in round one. The Grizzlies made sure the Thunder grit-and-grind against a tougher and slower Memphis team. That’s why Memphis won the series.
Miami took care of business as the Bulls were eliminated from the postseason. Lebron James and Dwyane Wade made sure Chicago went down and stayed down. Miami has the talented team hands down. There’s no doubt about that. Chicago plays hard and they are a scrappy bunch of players who are willing to get their hands dirty and play with an aggression. That’s why Miami won the series, because they are the more talented team.
