With Mike Conley headed to the locker room after a collison with C.J. McCollum, Grizz down to just Nick Calathes at PG for time being.

McCollum KOs Conley with an elbow
NBA 

UFC 186 isn't in Portland but C.J. McCollum just hit Mike Conley with a nasty elbow as Conley was helping on transition defense. Conley was shaken up but made it up to his feet and back to the locker room, holding a towel to his bleeding face. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Blazers' mouse in the house

C.J. McCollum found out the hard way that a guard doesn't challenge a big who has an open runway to the rim. He should be thankful that Kosta Koufos isn't a resident of Lob City.

D-Rose takes the blame for loss

Derrick Rose had a chance to win Game 4 late but the ball was stripped by Khris Middleton. The Bulls PG said postgame, "I put that all on me. Just wasn't paying attention to the ball. ... But if anything, this is a learning experience. ... I swear I'm built for it."

Grizzlies try to keep Blazers at bay

Memphis' trademark brand of basketball is in effect, collecting 4 blocks and outscoring Portland 30-14 in the paint for a 13-point lead at half. But Damian Lillard's finally arrived. The 21 PPG guard is up to 14, two shy of his 2015 postseason average. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Nick Calathes has filled in nicely for the injured Beno Udrih with seven points on 3-of-4 shooting.

If you like free throws...

... then this is the quarter for you. An Arron Afflalo foul on Jeff Green put Portland into the penalty -- a place Memphis was just minutes into the second. The Grizzlies are on an 11-4 run and have a 12-point lead midway through the period. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Portland coach Terry Stotts during a recent time out: "Good stops, good looks, good tempo. Everything's how we need it." Despite that assessment, the Blazers are down by 9 late in the 1st quarter. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

And Grizz go up double-figures, 18-7, with 4:07 in 1Q. Blazers crowd seems a little restless. They’ve seen this before (Games 1 & 2).
