Marc Gasol’s game-winning tip lifts Grizzlies over Thunder (VIDEO)

Mar 20, 2013, 11:57 PM EDT

On a night of barn burner games none ended in a more dramatic fashion than Oklahoma City and Memphis.

First, there only was overtime because of a Jerryd Bayless three at the end of regulation on a great stop move where Reggie Jackson bit on the pump fake.

Then in overtime it was back-and-forth and came down to one final shot, down one by Memphis. Mike Conley did a good job of getting Zach Randolph the ball in the post where he likes to work, he faces up and drives baseline and Nick Collison does a pretty good job to contest. He gets a little help on that from Kendrick Perkins.

But to help Perkins has to leave Marc Gasol on the weakside and there is nobody left who can handle his size and strength. Randolph’s shot goes a little long and Gasol is right there to give the Grizzlies a big win. In about the most dramatic way possible.
