Grizzlies Push Series To 7

The Grizzlies flexed their muscles in Memphis last night on their way to an impressive 95-83 victory in Game 6 to tie the series at 3-3. Now the Grizzlies and Thunder will play the first Game 7 of this postseason Sunday afternoon in Oklahoma City. Memphis head coach Lionel Hollins made a key change to his starting lineup that proved to pay dividends. Here is more from the AP and

O.J. Mayo moved back into the starting lineup, and his scoring threat from the outside gave Zach Randolph enough room to score 30 points and grab 13 rebounds Friday night as the Grizzlies avoided elimination by beating the Thunder 95-83 to push their Western Conference semifinal to a deciding Game 7.

Grizzlies Force Game 7 With Thunder

The move by Hollins was fantastic. It opened up the paint for the Grizzlies best player in Randolph. Memphis has been at their best in this series when they force the issue inside with Randolph and Marc Gasol. NBA fans should be happy they have their first Game 7 of the playoffs.

While 8 seeded Memphis and 4 seeded Oklahoma City are not glamour teams in the NBA, they have put on the best playoff series of this postseason. With the exception of Game 5, the matchup has been a joy to watch. Game 7 could be epic. Don’t look for either team to back down. It’s not in their nature.
