....However, Andre Roberson drags this team down ... much more than his good-but-not-great defense helps.

Granted it's offensively-challenged Griz w/o Conley, but this is not the same #Thunder we see 90% time. Impressive in lots of ways. @News9

Make that a 19 pt. Lead. #News9Thunder

Definitely Good Russ tonight. Pass-first approach, defending & the sweetest Euro-step drive you'll see on ESPN & @News9 highlights

Morrow is up next to take some shots on Memphis. #News9Thunder

The Thunder plays the Grizzlies more than the Yankees play the Red Sox

— Kevin Kuzminski (@KevinKuzminski) January 7, 2016

Dion hits first shot, a good sign in my book. I know....it was a layup. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 7, 2016

Absolutely love Russ w that 30-foot dart-like assist under rim he gets most every game at least once. KD the benefactor, again. 18-15.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 7, 2016

Too early to pedrict? Double-Double for KD in first half? 7pts, 4 rebs, so far. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 7, 2016

#Thunder intensity good in battle of teams shooting poorly....Memphis 21.4%...OKC 33.3%. 11-6 Good Guys. @News9

Russ drives for 2 , timeout, Thunder up 5. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 7, 2016

Didn't take long for a dramatic 2 from Russ. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 7, 2016

@OKCThunder really needs to take adv of no Conley for Memphis and having KD surprisingly back tonight to get back on track. @News9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 7, 2016

The Grizzlies in town, 8:30 tip, it sure feels like a playoff game. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 7, 2016

Billy Donovan makes it official in presser. @KDTrey5 returning tonight v #Griz after missing just 1 game w sprained right big toe.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 7, 2016
