Grizzlies players said before Game 3 that they believe that the way to defeat their opponent is to continue to play as they have during Game 1's third quarter.

Kevin Durant, 25, scored 17 points in the first half and Russell Westbrook added 16. The Thunder also blocked eight shots in the first half and scored 21 fast-break points before half-time and 56-34 at the break.
This year, Durant, who has been playing at par to Heat's LeBron James, will try again to lead his team to the NBA Championship. He has been shooting 50.3 percent overall, 39.1 percent from three-point range and 87.3 from the free-throw line. He is poised to earn his first MVP award. In the four games against Memphis, Durant averaged 30.7 points in four games (three of them victories).
The Grizzlies feature veteran players such as center Marc Gasol, Mike Miller and Zach Randolph. They will pit Mike Conley against Westbrook. Conley is one of the league's better point guards.
The initial speculation is that the Grizzlies will push Thunder hard, but the Thunder's star players can stand the pressure and perform.
