Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Memphis Grizzlies: Game 4 Postgame Grades and Analysis

The Memphis Grizzlies stole a pivotal Game 4 from the Oklahoma City Thunder after trailing by 17 points in the first half. 

The Grizzlies won a 103-97 overtime thriller, thanks to a resilient performance from Mike Conley, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol—who combined for 70 of the Grizzlies' 103 points.

Kevin Durant once again led the way for the Thunder, but his performance wasn't enough as he was held scoreless in overtime. 

Durant ended with 27 points, seven assists and seven rebounds, but what he didn't do was more important down the stretch. After shooting 55 percent in the first three quarters, he shot just 17.6 percent in the fourth quarter and overtime.

The biggest difference-maker in Game 4 was the solid interior play of the Grizzlies, who outscored the Thunder in the paint 44-30. 

Every loss is tough, but this one is especially difficult for the Thunder, who led by 17 points with under five minutes left in the second quarter.

Game 5 is set for Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m. ET, and that could be the end for the Thunder's title hopes.
