Perhaps one of the best things Zach Randolph could've done for the Grizzlies was not get himself suspended—especially with Game 7 on the horizon. Unfortunately for Memphis, he did the exact opposite.

The forward got suspended for one game for hitting center Steven Adams squarely in the jaw last game. That's obviously not good for the Grizzlies' hopes of toppling the Thunder. The worst part about Randolph's transgression is that it was completely avoidable. The BasedGod's curse doesn't insure poor decisions.
