On Tuesday’s live episode of The Starters, the guys discuss that instant #THUNDERGRIZZLIES Game 2 classic, Blake Griffin killin’ the Dubs, and a few of the NBA awards — DPoY and COY. All that, plus Mike Woodson goatees, super sad fans, and a preview of tonight’s three Game 2s — Hawks/Pacers, Nets/Raps and Wiz/Bulls.
Ugh. I feel claustrophobic just watching this. Or like I’m wearing a very scratchy sweater while someone just keeps slapping my arms. Either way, totes uncomfortable, so imagine how Kevin Durant must feel. Or don’t, unless you want to be crippled by anxiety attacks.

Shoutout: The winner of the night was the entirety of last night’s Grizzlies-Thunders game. Holy smokertons, what a game. Basketball.
Not so much: On the other hand, loser of the night was the Warriors-Clippers game, which was the complete opposite of the Grizzders in just about every way, shape and form. I mean, yeah, the Warriors won Game 1, but after losing Game 2 by 40, is stealing home court advantage even a successful trip? Hard to tell.
Wake up: The Grizzlies won, but this Kevin Durant four-point play had me screaming in my sweatshorts.
That same corner of the OKC court has been the location of this crazy Durant shot AND that insane Westbrook game-winner that was our No. 1 play of the year. So if you are ever buying courtside tickets for a Thunder game, ask for that corner. Something unbelievable is bound to happen.
