Thunder take control in 4th, slow down streaking Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (NBA.com exclusive) -- This time last year, the Oklahoma City Thunder were incapable of withstanding a third quarter like the one they endured Friday night at Memphis.

The Thunder led 56-42 at the half, only to have the Grizzlies come out in the third quarter and outscore them 28-10, outrebound them 24-8, and take a 70-66 lead into the final quarter. That was a recipe for folding last season.

This year, the Thunder have learned to put their trust in their defense. In doing so, they put the clamps on the Grizzlies offense with several key fourth quarter stops and came away with a 102-94 victory in front of 13,048 at FedExForum.

"I think we are mentally tough,'' Oklahoma City Kevin Durant said. "We still have a long way to go in that area, but we are more mentally tough than we were last year. That was one of the toughest third quarters we have played. That was a test that I think we passed. We came out in the fourth quarter and fought hard against a great team and got the win.''

In a matchup of the NBA's two youngest teams, the Thunder were looking to build on their surprising 11-9 start, while the streaking Grizzlies, who had won eight of their last 12 games after a 1-8 start, were looking for their fourth straight win. Prior to the game, Thunder coach Scott Brooks said his team would have to remain focused defensively against a versatile Grizzlies offense if they were to come away with their sixth road win of the season.

And for most of the night, the Thunder did just that, holding the Grizzlies to just 41.3 percent shooting, 22.2 percent from 3-point range. The Grizzlies also cooperated by making just 14 of their 24 free throws.

"Going into the game, we knew this was a team that could score,'' Brooks said. "They have been on a nice run lately with a big win against Cleveland, and we wanted to really come out and defend them, contest their shooters. They have three guys that can score 25-30 points in a night.''

The Grizzlies were coming off an impressive three-game winning streak that featured back-to-back wins over Dallas and Cleveland. But they came out flat in the first quarter against Oklahoma City, which wasted no time building a 22-10 advantage. Three straight baskets to start the second quarter gave the Thunder a 35-18 lead, their biggest of the game.

"We came out like we were just going to win the game,'' said Mike Conley, who led the Grizzlies with a season-high 20 points and eight assists. "We played good defensively, but had no energy at the beginning of the game. ... Our energy in the first half wasn't any good.''

Despite their poor play offensively, the Grizzlies managed to hang around long enough for their big third quarter. It was a quarter in which forward Zach Randolph went to work on the boards. After not picking up a rebound until just over four minutes remained in the first half, the 6-foot-9 forward set a franchise record for most rebounds in a quarter with 13, seven of those coming on the offensive end, which also was a team record for most offensive boards in a quarter. He would finish the game with 19 points and 20 rebounds.

"He was super,'' Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said. "Zach had 20 rebounds, 11 were offensive, and he basically got us back into the game in the third quarter by rebounding.''

The Grizzlies closed out the third quarter with a 11-0 run to take their biggest lead of the game at 70-66. But the resilient Thunder started the fourth quarter with a 17-3 run of their own to go up, 83-73. A brief Grizzlies run late saw them cut the gap to six, but the Thunder managed to improve to 10-0 when scoring 100 or more points.

"We knew that they were going to make a run at some point,'' Oklahoma City rookie James Harden said. "In that fourth quarter, we had settled down and played our offense. We had to lock down on the defensive end.

"We are feisty. We are young, but we are feisty and we won't give in that easy. They made their run and we just locked down and got after it.''

Durant led the Thunder with 32 points and 10 boards. Russell Westbrook added 23 points, seven assists and six rebounds and Nenad Krstic had 15 points and eight rebounds.

Despite scoring 19 and 16 points respectively, O.J. Mayo and Rudy Gay had tough shooting nights for the Grizzlies. Mayo made 8 of his 23 shots while going 1-for-8 from 3-point range, while Gay was just 4-of-16 from the floor and made only 7 of his 12 free throw attempts.

Randolph also set team records for rebounds in a half (16), offensive rebounds in a game (11), and offensive rebounds in a half (10).
