When Troy Daniels launched three after three, the Thunder took notice.
“They kept launching threes at the end, and I didn’t take that too kindly, and we remember that,” Roberson said.
Daniels hit 6-of-8 three-pointers in the fourth quarter after the game was already in hand. The Grizzlies led by as many as 37 in the game due to the barrage of threes.
“It’ll be a little bit of a different team than when we last played them,” Donovan said. “Obviously, they played exceptionally well against us.”
Memphis beat Oklahoma City 114-80 and Russell Westbrook was ejected in the third quarter.
“I would usually say, it’s one of those games we throw out,” Roberson said. “But at the end of that game, I felt like we got disrespected in a way.”
Oklahoma City is 16-14 all-time against Memphis and 9-5 against the Grizzlies at the Peake.
“We didn’t react too kindly when it actually happened, to be honest with you,” Roberson said. “We just couldn’t do nothing about it. We were on the bench. When that stuff happens, it leaves a taste in your mouth after the game, to be honest with you. We remember that.”
Oklahoma City will look at the film and remember as the Thunder and the Grizzlies are set to do battle at 7 p.m. at the Peake. The game is set to air on ESPN and FS Oklahoma.
“We bring it up in film,” Roberson said. “We’ll come out tomorrow aggressively and try to get after it.”Looking for Oklahoma City Thunder tickets?
