What a difference 24 hours can make.

Just one short day ago the conversation surrounding the Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder in their first round playoff matchup surrounded Kevin Durant and The Oklahoman. The paper blasted the future MVP by calling him Mr. Unreliable, which of course got basketball fans around the country fired up.

KD and the Thunder would respond with a resounding victory on the road to force a game seven from OKC on Saturday night. We all know that anything goes in a game seven, but one crucial Grizzlies member won’t be doing anything come Saturday. That would be Zach Randolph, who’s been suspended for game seven.

Randolph punched Steven Adams during the third quarter of Thursday night’s game after the two got tangled up. The play went under the radar compared to Paul George leaving the bench during his game, but it looks like Randolph will be the only one suspended for his game seven.

The Grizzlies already figured to be in trouble because of Mike Conley‘s strained hamstring, so this news is certainly not what the doctor ordered. Add in the fact that Memphis will be on the road and that the Thunder seemingly stole all the momentum back in game six, and things all of a sudden look bad for the Grizz.

Go figure, because they were once in control of the entire series. The Thunder appear to have been bailed out a bit, but there’s still a game to play. We’ll now wait and see if Durant and put an end to this Mr. Unreliable crap.
