Thunder survive Grizzlies in Triple OT Thrilla!


The #4 Oklahoma City Thunder survived the #8 Memphis Grizzlies in a 133-123 triple OT thrilla last night! It was the sixth playoff game ever to reach triple OT. The Thunder regained home-court advantage and tied the Western Conference semi-final series at (2-2). Kevin Durant scored six of this 35 points (+13 boards) in the third OT to pull away from the Grizz. Russell Westbrook scored 40 points, but took too many shots (15-33), and missed key baskets in the fourth quarter and OT sessions. James Harden was a hidden factor for the Thunder with 19 points, seven boards, and seven assists. Grizzlies Zach Randolph came through with 34 points (+16 boards), but on a dismal 9-25 shooting night. The combo of him and Marc Gasol (26 points 21 boards) have made the Grizzlies tough comp. Watch the highlight reel!

”This game is something people are going to be talking about for a while,” Durant said. ”I’m glad I’m a part of it.” (courtesy foxsports)
