Memphis Grizzlies Beat Oklahoma City Thunder 95-83, Force Seventh Game

The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 95-83 to force their National Basketball Association conference series to a seventh and decided game.

The series will be decided tomorrow in Oklahoma City, with the winner to meet the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference final.

“ I feel good, but the job ain’t done yet,” said Zach Randolph, who scored a game-high 30 points and 13 rebounds for the Grizzlies. “We know it’s going to be tough going to Oklahoma trying to win that game.”

O.J. Mayo added 16 points for the Grizzlies last night at FedEx Forum in Memphis.

Russell Westbrook scored 27 points and James Harden added 14 for the Thunder. Kevin Durant had a post-season low 11 points.

“It’s going to be a tough Game 7 at our place,” Durant told reporters. “I’m looking forward to it.”
