Grizzlies, Thunder Go To Triple Overtime; Celtics Lose Again

Updated:

If only Seattle fans could have seen it.... in Seattle. The Oklahoma City Thunder (a.k.a the old Sonics) overcame a 12-point first quarter deficit to even the series with Memphis Monday night in a triple overtime thriller.

The Thunder beat the Grizzlies 133-123 thanks in large part to Kevin Durant's 35 points. He scored six in the final OT. Russell Westbrook scored a career playoff high 40 points in the win.

Both teams have won two games in the series. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Oklahoma City.


Celtics let another one slip

In Boston, they watched another one slip away from the Celtics, who trail the Heat three-games-to-one in their Eastern Conference semifinal following a 98-90 overtime loss to Miami.

The Heat's Big 3 led the way. LeBron James scored 35 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. Dwyane Wade scored 28 with nine rebounds and Chris Bosh added 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Miami gets its first opportunity to eliminate the defending conference champions Wednesday right on its home floor.


Chicago-Atlanta on Tuesday

The only NBA game on Tuesday is Game 5 of the series between Chicago and Atlanta - a pivotal game. Tipoff in the Windy City is 5 p.m. (PT).
