Grizzlies Beat Thunder 111-105
(WREG-TV) The Memphis Grizzlies beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in overtime Monday night.
The final score was 111-105.
To start Game 2, Zach Randolph late in the shot clock gave the Grizzlies their first lead of the series.
Tony Allen didn’t get the start, but he again proved to be a thorn in the Thunder’s side.
Off the bench, allen makes the swipe, which Courtney Lee converts on the other end.
Grizz up 8 after one, much different than Game 1.
The Grindfather was everywhere, out-muscling two Thunder for the rebound, finding and feeding ZBo for the easy 2.
Grizz were up 46-43 at the half as Kevin Durant scored just 8 points.
In the third, Conley goes on the attack, splitting the double team and hitting that patented floater.
Grizz were then up three after three, and they put five players in double figures, including seldom-used Beno Udrih.
Udrih off the bench hit 6 of 8, finishing with 14.
Grizz were then up 8 with six to go.
But with under a minute left, that lead was gone…that is, until Miller buried another 3.
OKC was down 5 with 18 seconds to go when Durant somehow hit a prayer from the corner, plus the foul, cutting the Grizz lead to 1.
Conley went 1-for-2 at the line, giving the Thunder one last chance and down two, Russell Westbrook missed the three but Kendrick Perkins was there for the follow at the buzzer.
It was his only bucket of the game, sending it to overtime, tied at 99.
Stunned but not defeated, ZBo came up huge in overtime, taking a dish from Allen for the game-winning bucket.
In Game 1 of their Western Conference playoff series, the Grizz suffered a 100-86 loss to the Thunder.
Game 3 is this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the FedExForum.
