Grizzlies Also Having 4th Quarter Issues

Tell me when this starts to sound familiar.

Grizzlies Fail To Close Out The Thunder, Streak Ends At Two Games - Straight Outta Vancouver

The first three quarters of last night's game between the Grizzlies and the Thunder were, well, great. Memphis showed strong effort on both sides of the ball, closing out on Kevin Durant, dominating the paint on offense, etc., etc., etc. But, as is the case with the 2011-12 Grizzlies, they once again fail to close out on title contending teams in the 4th quarter. Having been outscored 32-17 in the 4th, the Grizzlies gave up a once 10-point lead on their way to losing 101-94.

Granted, giving up an epic collapse to the title contending Thunder is one thing. Doing the same to the rebuilding Cavs is another. Still, I think at least part of this has to do with the oddball season that we're experiencing this year. Either it is legs failing or lack of preparation or just not being mentally prepared for a full 48 minutes. Regardless, today's matchup should be an interesting one.
