FedExForum– After a sluggish first half, Marc Gasol keyed a second half rally as the Grizzlies knocked off Oklahoma City 87-81 to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-7 series with the top-seeded Thunder.

Gasol finishing with 20 with Mike Conley and Tony Allen chipping in 14 apiece to help offset an off night from Zach Randolph and help the Grizz retain homecourt advantage against OKC.

Kevin Durant did lead all scorers with 25, but only 9 of those came in the second half.  Durant, who hits over 90% of his free throws, also missed two critical freebies in the closing second to help the Grizz win for the sixth time in seven games.

Game 4 is Monday night back at the Grindhouse.
