Kevin Durant and Russel Westbrook teamed up to beat the surprising Memphis Grizzlies in Game 4 of their Western Conference semi-finals showdown at Memphis. The series is now tied 2-2. The Thunder won via triple overtime and they win with the score of the series will shift to Oklahoma City.
In this game Durant had 34 points and he carried his team from the first quarter down to the first overtime but he slowed down in the second and third overtime because of fatigue. The good thing is that Russel Westbrook took over the scoring chores and he bailed out Durant. Durant went stagnant and so Westbrook seek to move better and quicker in order for him to score. He had 40 points to seal the victory for the Thunder.
The Thunder withstood the efforts of Mark Gasol who had points and rebounds. He’s slowly becoming a dominant force for the Grizzlies. Zach Randolph on the other hand felt bad about this loss because he’s been playing really well for Memphis. In the last four games he’s been averaging more than 20 points a game and more than 10 rebounds per outing. He also had 34 points in this game. He’s the go-to-guy of Memphis since Rudy Gay went down because of an elbow injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season.
