The Grizzlies leads 3-2 in the best-of-7 first-round series after winning Game 5 with 100-99 in overtime on Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. The last four games ended in overtime, but Grizzlies players have expressed their dissatisfaction over blowing their leads in each game.
"I'm getting tired of it," Grizzlies guard Tony Allen said, according to AP. "Hopefully, we do the things we need to do to try to avoid that, that's taking care of the ball down the stretch."
The Thunder faces elimination if they lose today's game. It will be the first time since 2010 when NBA All-Star Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook lost to the Lakers. While Oklahoma City had the second-best record in the regular season, that may not mean much if they do not force a Game 7 back at home court in Oklahoma. The No. 1 seeded Indiana Pacers are also facing similar predicament as they play the Atlanta Hawks in Game 6.
After Game 3, Thunders' players are saying that they will start passing the ball more. Up then, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were the primary ones taking the shots, but were not making them
The Thunder found a way to put a stop to Memphis forward Zach Randolph who usually overpower his opponents with aggressive play - Oklahoma City's Kendrick Perkins and Serge have limited Randolph, 6-foot-9, 260-pound forward, to just 36 percent shooting percentage in the playoffs.
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.
