Conference Semis // Game 3 Final Score: Thunder 81, Grizzlies 87

USA TODAY Sports

The Grizzlies, led by an incredible performance from Marc Gasol, take a pivotal game 3 win against the Thunder

Wow. Wow wow wow wow.

Sure, there was ugliness involved - especially at times in the first half. But somehow, someway, the Grizz were able to stay in the game led by efforts of Marc Gasol and the bench.

Yes, the bench.

Marc Gasol finished with 20 points and 9 rebounds, Mike Conley and Tony Allen each with 14 points, and Quincy Pondexter with 9 points. This production, mixed with help from Durant's missed rebounds and Reggie Jackson's mystery foul, helped us grind our way to a six point win.

Believe it, guys. Believe it.

Box Score:



Don't forget about our victory haikus! Bonus points to haikus mentioning Durantula's missed free throws: something that will probably never happen again.
