GRIZZLIES BEAT THE THUNDER IN OVERTIME, LEAD SERIES 3-1
Wed, 15 May 2013 02:30 AM EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies are proving they know how to grab an advantage and hold onto it this postseason.

Tony Allen scored on a driving layup to open overtime and the Grizzlies held off the Oklahoma City Thunder 103-97 to push the defending Western Conference champions to the edge of elimination.

The Grizzlies shook off a first half in which they couldn’t hit shots and the Thunder seemingly couldn’t miss in building their largest lead in this series at 17 points. But the Memphis have yet to lose on their home court this postseason, and they won their 3rd straight and 7th in 8 games to grab a 3-1 lead in the series.

The Memphis Grizzlies outscored the Thunder 9-3 in overtime.

Kevin Durant scored 27 points but missed all 5 of his shots in the extra period, including a layup in the final seconds. Durant went 2 of 13 in the 4th quarter and overtime and had only 5 points. The All Star played 48 minutes and was just short on his shots as the game wore on.

Durant got the help from his teammates he had been needing. Kevin Martin scored 18 points, Serge Ibaka had his best game of the series with 17 points and 14 rebounds, and Reggie Jackson had Fifteen. Nick Collison even added 10.

Mike Conley led Memphis with 24 points and Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each had double-doubles. Randolph had 23 and 12, while Gasol had 23 and 11 along 6 blocks on the day the Defensive Player of Year was named to the NBA’s second All-Defensive team along with Conley, who had 4 steals.

Allen, who finished with 10 points, had 3 steals on the day he edged LeBron James for most points for the NBA’s All-Defensive team.

In 2011, the Grizzlies were the team that blew the big lead in the first half of Game 4 with the Thunder pulling out the win to even up the series. They also wasted home-court advantage last year in the playoffs in the opening round against the Los Angeles Clippers.

This time, the Thunder were up by as much as 17 in the first half and 12 in the 3rd. But Memphis used a 20-8 run in the 3rd to get back into this game. They blew a chance to close out the win when Ibaka blocked a shot by Randolph just before the buzzer in regulation.

But Allen scored to open overtime, and then Randolph rebounded back a miss by Marc Gasol and scored on a putback. Derek Fisher, who missed his first 4 shots, finally hit a 3-pointer. But the 38-year-old veteran also had his inbound pass stolen by Allen with 21.1 seconds left and Memphis up 100-97.

Memphis bounced back and outscored Thunder 44-30 in the paint even though the Grizzlies got outrebounded 44-41. The Grizzlies still had a 13-8 advantage on the offensive glass leading to a 21-10 edge in 2nd-chance points.

But they had no fast-break points compared against 12 for the Thunder. Memphis also took better care of the ball with only 7 turnovers compared to 15 by Oklahoma City Thunder the Grizzlies turned into 18 points. Memphis did not have a single turnover in overtime while the Thunder had two, including the one by Fisher.
