The Memphis Grizzlies traded away arguably their best player and leading scorer Rudy Gay for spare parts to save a little money on their salary cap next year and it showed tonight in a game against the NBA’s 2nd best record Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder led 58-34 at the half and never looked back. Kevin Durant dropped in 27 as the Thunder took a 106-89 victory over the Grizzlies. Jerryd Bayless scored 23 to led the Grizzlies who struggled all night to find offense without Gay.
The Memphis Grizzlies are currently 4th in the Western Conference only 5.5 games ahead of 8th seeded Houston. If somehow the Grizzlies fall out of the playoffs this will go down as one of the dumbest moves in sports history.
