ICYMI: Last Night’s OKC/Memphis Game, Briefly
This was the only highlight for Oklahoma City in the first, oh, 44 minutes of the game. After a 17-0 run to tie the game at 81, the Grizz scored four straight and appeared to have the game in hand yet again. Then, this:
OKC’s second last-minute four point play of the series tied the game at 85. Memphis did its best Will Muschamp impression to win it in regulation, to no avail:
Westbrook hits a 500 foot three pointer to tie. Grizzlies respond by calling three tight end formation and power run to right.

Somehow, Memphis withstood all this and won 98-95 in overtime, taking a 2-1 series lead and making one wonder: WHAT IF THE THUNDER HAD ANOTHER CAPABLE SCORER?
