Kevin Durant Drops 33 Points to lead the Thunder over the Grizzlies
The Oklahoma City Thunder survived a major scare at home in Game 1 of their first-round series with the Memphis Grizzlies. After watching a 22-point lead dwindle to only two points in the second half, OKC earned a 100-86 win.
As the NBA tweeted out, the Thunder were the first home team to win among Saturday’s four first-round games:
Kevin did Kevin Durant things, leading the way with 33 points on 13-of-25 shooting. The Thunder needed each and every one of those points, since Russell Westbrook was at some points impressive and others confounding. He shot 6-of-10 in the first half and scored 16 points. In the second half, he went 2-of-9 and ended up with 23 points for the entire game. The Thunder star missed all five of his three-point attempts.
