The Oklahoma City Thunder are playing host to the Memphis Grizzlies in a huge game 5 on Tuesday night. The Thunder won game 1 at home, only to drop the next two games, both in overtime. The Thunder responded by defeating the Grizzlies in yet another overtime game at Memphis in game 4.
The Thunder looked completely outclassed through two-and-a-half quarters in game 5, falling behind by 20 points in the third quarter. However, they answered with a 27-6 run to take the lead. The Grizzlies quickly charged back to take a five-point lead, but a Caron Butler four-point play cut it back to one. The Grizzlies hit one of two free throws, but got the rebound back and attempted to run some clock. Mike Conley took the ball out above the three-point line. Russell Westbrook picked him cleanly, then raced down the court for a dunk to tie the game at 90.
