Thunder surrender Grizzlies!


The #4 Oklahoma City Thunder surrendered #8 Memphis Grizzlies 105-90 to close-out the Western Conference Semi-Final Series (4-3), yesterday! Russell Westbrook had his first career post-season triple-double with 14 points, 14 assists, and 10 boards. It was only the fifth triple-double done in a game 7 of the Playoffs in NBA history. Westbrook distributed the ball well to high-scoring Kevin Durant who ended with 39 points and seven boards. Thunder sixth man James Harden added a respectable 17 points, and Nick Collison (off-the-bench) pulled 12 boards. Now the Thunder next opponent is the #3 Dallas Mavericks who swept the Lakers, check out the promo below! Grizzlies Zach Randolph AKA Zee-Bo was held to 17 points and 10 boards, but big part led the way for the Grizz to make it to this point. Check out Zee-Bo giving post-game props to Durant, courtesy foxsports, and watch the highlight reel below! 

”Durant is a special player, one of the best players in the NBA,” said Memphis star Zach Randolph, who was limited to an inefficient 17 points and 10 rebounds. ”The kid is a gym-rat, he works hard. He’s one of my favorite players. You’ve got to give him kudos and give him respect.

”You see what he does night in and night out and he’s just relentless.”
