Russell Has Respect For Memphis Defense

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma City Thunder fans are we having fun yet?  This very exciting and entertaining series with Memphis is tied at two games apiece.  Game five is just a day away.

It sure wasn't fun watching Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook go for a combined 11-of-45 from the field last Saturday night.  They had just 30-points between them.

The Grizz are playing some stifling defense on the Thunder's two stars.  A style Russell respects.

"They're just putting three or four people on the ball whenever me or Kevin has the ball." said Thunder Point Guard Russell Westbrook, "That's what they're doing and that's their game plan.  I don't blame them, they're doing what's best for them.  We've just got to adjust and make our teammates better."

Game five between the Thunder and the Grizzlies is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.  Tip-off is set for 8:00pm.
