The Thunder tied up their playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night with a win at the OKC Arena. Staff Photographers Chris Landsberger and Bryan Terry  turned in 82 pictures from last night’s game and the pre-game festivities outside the arena. Including remote cameras on the floor and attached to the post, Chris and Bryan used a total of 9 camera bodies to cover game two.

Since the playoffs started a few weeks ago against the Denver Nuggets, we’ve turned 437 pictures into our archive system, called Merlin. Since the Thunder name was officially revealed during a press conference on Sept. 3, 2008, we’ve turned in 5,349 pictures with the word Thunder in the cutline.
