The second overtime was tense. Full of big Thunder plays. Westbrook made a 3-point play to give OKC a 112-110 lead with 4:05 left, then Westbrook made a drive to tie the game at 114 with 1:41 to go. Vasquez converted a three-point play, but Harden answered with a 3-point shot to make it 117-117 with 1:07 to go. Westbrook nailed a 21-footer with 30.8 seconds left to make it 119-119.
Then the Thunder — led by Perkins and Nick Collison — play he-man in the lane as Randolph, Gasol and Randolph again each got shots at the basket. None fell, and Westbrook’s desperation shot at the buzzer was off.
So to a third overtime went the game. And finally the Thunder took control. The Grizzlies were without their two best perimeter scorers, Conley and Mayo, and finally it cost them. Memphis made only one of eight shots in the third overtime, Serge Ibaka’s 7-footer gave OKC a 127-123 lead with 1:37 left and the Thunder won going away, 133-123.
The rest of the series was blowouts — OKC won 99-72 in Game 5, Memphis won 95-83 in Game 6 and the Thunder finally eliminated the Grizzlies 105-90.
The Thunder seems in trouble going into Game 4. But the Thunder was in deeper trouble the last time it played a Game 4 in Memphis.
