Grizzlies Suffer Worst Home Loss Ever in Memphis Against Thunder

The Commercial Appeal/Zumapress/Icon Sportswire

The Memphis Grizzlies have a respectable 12-10 record, but the Grizzlies have suffered numerous troublesome losses this season. The latest was a 125-88 loss at home against the Oklahoma City Thunder, which marked the franchise’s worst home loss since moving to Memphis.

Kevin Durant torched the Grizzlies to the tune of 32 points on 11-of-14 shooting. Russell Westbrook controlled the offense with 13 points and 16 assists, which tied a season high for dimes.

Meanwhile, Russell’s counterpart, Mike Conley, didn’t score a single point in the Grizzlies’ latest disastrous loss. Memphis shot under 41 percent overall and went just 3-of-14 from three-point range.

A bad loss like this on its own isn’t a huge deal, but this was the seventh loss by 15 points or more for Memphis. The Grizzlies opened the season with a 30-point loss at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers and lost by FIFTY at Oracle Arena not long after that. There was also a 20-point home loss to the San Antonio Spurs just last week, so this is now three losses by 20 points or more at the FedExForum on the year.

Because of these terrible losses, the Grizzlies have an average point differential of -4.8, which is fourth-worst in the Western Conference. Memphis has won enough other games to make its record solid, but all these bad losses aren’t a good sign for the future.
