A lot of the nation was asleep by the time Memphis and Oklahoma City finished up. If that was you, then you need to watch this.
This was the most wildly entertaining game of the playoffs. Not the best played one, but the most dramatic and most entertaining. One filled with blown leads and insane threes (hello Mike Conley), questionable decision and in the end Kevin Durant making plays.
Just watch the video. Then when NBA TV replays the game, watch it. It’s a playoffs classic.
