Watch insane ending to Grizzlies Game 3 win over Thunder (VIDEO)

Apr 25, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

For a couple of games now it has gone like this: The Oklahoma City Thunder make spectacular plays late (they’ve had two clutch four-point plays) yet the Memphis Grizzlies just keep grinding and executing. It’s been close, but when the dust settles the Grizzlies are the ones standing.

That was the case again Thursday night. Kevin Durant drives and dunks. Russell Westbrook hits a three while getting fouled. The game goes to overtime.

Where Mike Conley hits a three, where a steal leads to a Conley lay-up, where Marc Gasol is hitting free throw line jumpers — where with the game on the line the Grizzlies keep running sets not going to isolation plays. They just keep executing.

And it works. Memphis now leads the series 2-1 with Game 4 in their place being a not quite but almost must-win for Oklahoma City.

    Nice flopping by Westbrook.

      Seriously, does Westbrook EVER land on his feet after jacking up a 3?

      He’s turn this game into soccer.

      Flop or no, Tony Allen got him on the elbow. That replay didn’t show it, but it was a clear foul when they replayed another angle during the telecast.

    Great series. These two teams are really battling it out. Horrible play by Tony Allen at the end of the game. I was for sure Westbrook would make the first two FTs and somehow OKC get the tip on the last one. But hey i guess thats why we love this game. Game 4 should be interesting.

    This is my impression of a Scott Brooks offense: Durant stands at the three point line. Someone sets a pick for Westbrook. End of play.

    That was pretty exciting

    Kind of criminal to not show Tony Allen’s four point surge which preceded Westbrook’s four point play. That was the most exciting sequence of the game, IMHO. A few of the Thunder bricks could have been left out to make room.
