The Oklahoma City Thunder will try and finish off the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night as the teams play Game 6 of their best-of-seven series. The Thunder routed the Grizzlies in Game 5 on Wednesday night by a score of 99-72 to take a 3-2 lead in the series.

Memphis is a 2-point favorite with a total of 195.5 at SBG

The Thunder have now won the last two games in this series to take a 3-2 lead.  The series turned around when the Thunder won that classic triple overtime game in Memphis on Monday.  The Grizzlies had no energy after losing that game and they were blown off the court in Game 5 at Oklahoma City on Wednesday.  The Thunder were so dominant that they didn’t even need big games from Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook as the Grizzlies were never in the game.  Zach Randolph was a nonfactor, Mike Conley was horrible and the Grizzlies shot 36% from the field.  Oklahoma City had all of the energy in Game 5 and didn’t look fatigued at all.  The Thunder became the first team in NBA betting history to win their next game after winning a triple overtime playoff game.  No team since the 1976 Boston Celtics has won a playoff series after winning a triple overtime playoff game but the Thunder are in position to do it on Friday night.


The Grizzlies will try and muster some energy on Friday night.  The Grizzlies were run off the court on Wednesday night as the Thunder had a 20-7 edge in fast break points.  Oklahoma City also had the edge in second chance points and they had an advantage in the paint. Memphis coach Lionel Hollins admitted that fatigue was a factor in Game 5.  The question is whether or not Memphis is recovered enough to give a huge effort on Friday.


Here are the betting stats for Friday’s game. The Thunder are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Thunder are 20-9 ATS in their last 29 Friday games. The Grizzlies are 23-9 ATS in their last 32 home games. The home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. The Over is 6-2 in Oklahoma City’s last 8 Conference Semifinals games.  In this series,
