The Memphis Grizzlies are showing a knack for closing out tight games against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for striking Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers in the groin area during Sunday's game.
Bradley Beal made a jumper with 0.3 seconds left Monday night, lifting the short-handed Washington Wizards a 101-99 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, who missed 16 straight shots at one stretch.
LeBron James and Kevin Durant exchanged words. Dwyane Wade and Serge Ibaka did a little shoving. Five technical fouls were called, and Russell Westbrook punched a table in frustration. This NBA Finals rematch met expectations.
Unable to work out an extension with James Harden, the Oklahoma City Thunder traded the Sixth Man of the Year to the Houston Rockets on Saturday night, breaking up the young core of the Western Conference champions.
Oklahoma City has been quite the NBA story the past few seasons.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook quickly went from being rookies to All-Stars, and now they're practically veterans on the increasingly youthful Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Oklahoma City Thunder took a big step toward sticking around as an NBA championship contender.
Gold medal at stake or nothing at all, the U.S. Olympic basketball team is too good for Spain.
Oklahoma City is most definitely not OK in these NBA Finals.
Oklahoma City was more than OK at the start. At the end, not so much.
They got an epic performance from Russell Westbrook. They ran out to a huge early lead. They watched LeBron James get carried off the court in the fourth quarter, and took the lead shortly after he departed.
LeBron James could hardly stand, certainly couldn't run. Good thing all he needed to do was shoot.
The Oklahoma City Thunder ran away with Game 1 of the NBA Finals 105-94, controlling the second half and rallying from a 13-point deficit to protect home court against the Miami Heat. But as Heat guard Dwyane Wade said, the opener is "just a game to see" what both teams are going to do and then start making adjustments.
When Lil Wayne turned down Kevin Durant's invitation to watch the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, he missed quite a show by the three-time scoring champion.
He did say he'll have to see "who's really available" for Game 2, a veiled reference to some of the Heat's bench players apparently not being ready to play, and indicated that some could be ready by Thursday.
"Pau is possibly the most talented center with the best fundamentals in the (NBA)," Ibaka said. "It will be a dream to play with him."
