Most of the time the media is talking about the Memphis staggering defense, but in this Game 3 it was their offense that turned the tide as all nine players that dressed for the game, score at least 5 points and 5 players score in the double-digits, thus their bench played a big role in this win against the Trail Blazers. An impressive all round performance was seen from their big man from Spain, M. Gasol who made 4 assists, 7 boards, and scored some 25 points, thus for this series against the Blazers he is averaging 5.3 assists. 8.2 boards and 18.3 points each game for the 3 games of this series.
If you happen to be a Trail Blazers of Portland fan you probably aren’t surprised that the loss on Saturday is the 7th straight defeat by the Grizzlies and as the Media reports, no team in the history of the NBA has come back to win a series when down 0-3. The main problem it appears for the Portland team has been their defense which in game 3 allowed the Grizzlies to shoot from the field some 46.8 % which is above their season average of 44.6%. If the Trail Blazers are to win they need a huge game performance from Lillard and Aldridge, as both players shooting has been way off their regular season pace, like he has only made 3 of his 18 3-pointers in this series.
The media experts are predicting that the Grizzlies of Memphis will win this game 4 at 94-to 85 to move on to the 2nd round of the 2015 Western Conference playoffs.
