The Oklahoma City Thunder looked to be dead in the water against the Memphis Grizzlies but they some how pulled out a miracle to tie the series at 2-2. It was a win the Thunder are grateful to have — specifically grateful for Reggie Jackson.
Down 80-75, Jackson had a career night that saw him carry the Thunder in the final minute of the game to force overtime and then eventually pick up the win. But while the series is tied 2-2, the Grizzlies are not to be slept on if you’re Oklahoma City as an upset is still very possible.
That happened last year when the Grizzlies went on a tear that ended up propelling them to the Western Conference Finals. It’s a little early to tell if they’ll be able make that happen but even if it doesn’t there seems to be an increasingly good chance that this series ends up going seven full games and the real winners in that scenario are the fans watching this great series unfold.
