The top-seeded Thunder look to avoid elimination and force a Game 6 as the Grizzlies are trying to advance to the Western Conference Finals with a victory. Check NBA odds at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Grizzlies (3-1) are becoming a front-runner for the team that will be the representative for the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. They have yet to lose a home game this whole postseason and kept that record clean when they defeated the Thunder twice in Memphis to take this commanding 3-1 lead with the series heading back to Oklahoma City. Game 4 was a six point win in overtime thanks to the huge performance from Marc Gasol, who played 48 minutes and scored 23 points and had 11 rebounds. Zach Randolph was a beast inside in 40 minutes with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Mike Conley Jr. led the team in scoring with 24 and he had five assists and four steals.
Kevin Durant continues to do all he can for the Thunder (1-3) but he just does not have a great second option that a team needs to go deep in the playoffs. Durant scored 27 points, had seven rebounds and seven assists in Game 4 but it still was not enough. Serge Ibaka played well with 17 points and 14 rebounds, but he hasn’t been a tremendous force this series. Reggie Jackson has been their second best player since Westbrook got hurt. Jackson had 15 points, eight assists and four rebounds in Game 4.
Memphis is now 9-1 against the spread in this postseason while the Thunder are just 3-7 ATS.
I think the Thunder will force a Game 6, but that is all the further the series will go. OKC wins Game 5 but first redeem sportsbook promo codes.
