NBA Playoffs throwback: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Memphis Grizzlies, 2011, Western Conference semifinals.

In a must-win game 4 with the Thunder down 2-1 in the series, Russell Westbrook goes for 40 in Memphis in a triple overtime victory. The Thunder go on to win the series before losing to Dallas in the WC Finals.

The rematch, sans Russ, begins Sunday at 1pm ET on ABC.

Sounds like a personal problem.

NBA Playoffs throwback: Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Seattle Supersonics, 1993, Game 7, Western Conference semifinals.

Way back in ‘93 Robert Horry showed flashes of his clutch-gene hitting this go ahead jumper with 0 seconds left on the shot clock and only 32 seconds remaining in the game. Unfortunately for Big Bob, the heroics don’t pay off as Seattle tied the game and won it in overtime. The Sonics advanced only to lose to Barkley’s Phoenix Suns in the Conference Finals.

The remix to this matchup begins tonight in Oklahoma City at 9:30pm EST on TNT.

From The Daily Thunder:

"Really, you could look at this Westbrook tantrum two ways: You could see it as a classic fit, a sign of his frustrating immaturity and overly emotional play, OR, you could see it as big time growth by the hot-headed 24-year-old. Because really, Brooks didn’t bench Westbrook at all. Immediately after the blowup with Thabo, Westbrook actually tugged on his jersey and said “get me” at Brooks. He wanted out. He knew he needed a little breather. And when he couldn’t settle himself, he decided to take a timeout in the hall.

And evidently, it worked. He checked back in and was terrific in slamming the door on Memphis. “

Russell Westbrook — and the intrigue behind what makes him tick? — makes him one of the most compelling players in basketball. Yes he plays angry, but the anger is mostly righteous: a notorious shoot-first point guard who yells at teammates when they pass up a shot. A turnover prone ball-handler who yells at himself when he commits one (or others)This is the enigma that is Russ Wess.

Marc Gasol puts the MOVES on Kendrick Perkins. Damn son.

These are the new OKC alternate jerseys. So. Ya or nay?

We made (Harden) a final proposal on Friday morning that was unacceptable. We then came back prior to beginning to execute a trade initiation with another proposal. And we were very transparent with James that if this is not acceptable then we were going to have to move towards making the best decision for the franchise given the fact that it was becoming a reality that more than likely he’d be signing elsewhere at the end of the season. Once that reality was met, as we have in the past, this organization turned the page. We started to focus on what was in the best interest of the program and focus on capitalizing on an opportunity to help us both in the short term and also continue to strengthen the future of the Thunder organization and building this program in a sustainable fashion.
