The first half of the match between Memphis Grizzlies Tickets and Oklahoma City Thunder was in absolute contrast to what had to follow in the second. The first half saw the Thunders raiding the Grizzlies so often that it often seemed as if only one team seemed to be playing the game. What are the Grizzlies doing? Are their point guards sleeping? Give them some Red Bull and wake them up from sleep – These really seemed to be the cat calls from the spectators.
Half time whistle blew. What is going to come next? Is it going to be an annihilation of the Grizzlies? By the half time the hooter had blown for the half time, the Grizzlies were trailing by 22 points. It surely is going to be a 40 whitewash, as per the spectators of the Thunders. Well, looking by the way how the Grizzlies were taking their game in the first half, a 50 point whitewash definitely does not seem out of cards. Memphis Grizzlies Tickets
On come players on the court, and as the Thunder’s fans expected a clean massacre, quite the opposite happened. In fact, the unthinkable if one may say! The Grizzlies turned around the plate with so much ease that the Thunders did not quite know what had hit them. 1,2,3 and so on – raids on the Thunders citadel kept on increasing with alarming regularity. Surely by now, the Thunders knew that they were driving a car up against a monster diesel-guzzler that would roll them up into thousand bits.
When the final hooter blew, the scoreline read 108-102 in favor of the Grizzlies. It obviously prompted a lot of people to say, “Revenge is sweet when it is served cold. At least, the enemies don’t quite expect it coming. And you don’t even burn your mouths”. That’s exactly what the Grizzlies did! Obviously, something happened during the half time and the Grizzlies would not wish to reveal what transpired behind the scenes. It is anybody’s guess but seems like the players swore by each other to make the Thunders bite the dust.
And did they come out with some purpose or what? A team that resembled a gang of college guys almost ending up fighting each other before half-time came out and not only put up a spirited show but also punctured any ambitions the Thunders had about beating them.
This amazing turnaround with the Grizzlies can only be attributed to their aggressive style of play. No ways they could have made such an impression after putting up a defensive show in the first half. That they had revenge on their minds when they took to the court after half time helped matters being settled rather forcefully!
