No one expected the Grizzlies to do what they have done, becoming just the second 8-seed to defeat a top-seeded team in a seven-game NBA playoff series.
But the real question now for Memphis is whether that emotional high helps them or hurts them.
In a span of about 36 hours after beating the San Antonio Spurs, the Grizzlies had to regroup, travel to Oklahoma City and prepare for a Noon tipoff on Sunday.
Will the short turnaround help the momentum carry over into OKC, or will Memphis be exhausted from a long, tough series with the Spurs?
Find out what Grizzlies players as well as Thunder coach Scott Brooks had to say during practices on Saturday.
