OKLAHOMA CITY – Facing possible elimination in the Western Conference semifinals, the pressure is on the Oklahoma City Thunder. They need three straight wins to keep their season alive.
Coach Scott Brooks says Tuesday that the only pressure he wants his players thinking about is competing as hard as they can in Game 5 on Wednesday night in Oklahoma City.
The Memphis Grizzlies hold a 3-1 lead in the series that has seen every game come down to the wire. Brooks says his team has the talent, effort and teamwork to come back and win the series.
Counterpart Lionel Hollins says his Grizzlies must be prepared for Oklahoma City to play with desperation.
