Thunder clap the Grizzlies!
The #4 Oklahoma City Thunder clapped the #8 Memphis Grizzlies 99-72, last night! Westbrook stapled the Grizz early with an emphatic Toma-hawk jam! The Thunder went ahead (3-2) in their Western Conference semi-final series. The Thunder bench outscored the Grizzlie bench 53-27, and did all the work for Kevin Durant (19 points 7 boards) and Russell Westbrook (11 points 6 assists). Thunder DaeQuan Cook led the bench with 18 points, Nick Collison threw down 10 boards, and Eric Maynor added nine assists. Durant and Westbrook got some well needed rest with such a commanding lead. Grizzlies Zach Randolph was asleep with nine points and seven boards, and Marc Gasol had only 15 points and five boards. Not to be outdone, the Grizzlies will be back next game with a better effort. Watch the highlight reel and Westbrook Toma-hawk jam!
