The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Memphis Grizzlies went to overtime for a record-breaking fourth straight time in their series and the Grizzlies were able to pull off the 100-99 win to take a 3-2 lead in the series.
The Grizzlies were able to take a 55-43 lead into the locker room at halftime, but the Thunder charged back in the second half. A late steal by point guard Russell Westbrook led the game-tying field goal that sent the game into overtime. Serge Ibaka made a last-second tip-in in the extra period, but the refs reviewed the play and the ball was barely touching his finger when the clock expired, which gave the Grizzlies the win.
Zach Randolph had a solid game for Memphis by scoring 20 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in the win. Center Marc Gasol made just four of his 14 shots, but he finished with 15 rebounds to go along with his 11 points. Mike Miller came off the bench for the Grizzlies to make five of his eight three-point attempts and scored a team-high 21 points.
Russell Westbrook had a triple-double for the Thunder with 30 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, but he made just 10 of his 31 shots in the game. Kevin Durant added 26 points and eight rebounds in the losing effort, while Ibaka finished with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
