Best bet on the Tube

The Memphis Grizzlies have been here before. Now they will find out if age and experience can help them hold onto home-court advantage. Leading the Oklahoma City Thunder 2-1 in the 2011 Western Conference semifinals, the Grizzlies blew a 22-point lead in Game 4 and lost 133-123 in triple overtime. The building was so loud players couldn’t hear coaches from the bench or guards calling plays on the court. The Thunder won the series in seven games. This time around, the Grizzlies have won two straight to take another 2-1 lead in the Western semifinals over the Thunder. Game 4 is tonight ( 6:30, TNT). –Associated Press
