The NBA announced Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph has been suspended one game for punching Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams. Randolph will miss Game 7 of the teams’ playoff series Saturday.
The Grizzlies’ leading scorer committed the offense with 6:42 left in the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s game 6.
With the Grizzlies top scorer out, this definitely paves the way for Oklahoma City to make it to the second round. Though I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect them to lose Game 7 anyway.
