Given the drama that's enveloped the Oklahoma City Thunder's first-round series with the Memphis Grizzlies, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Tuesday night's Game 5 went down to the wire. 

With the Thunder trailing by one point with 2.9 seconds remaining in overtime, Kevin Durant missed a deep three over the outstretched arm of Marc Gasol that was rebounded and put back by Serge Ibaka just after time expired. 

Following Tuesday's heartbreaking loss, the Thunder now find themselves in a must-win situation entering Game 6, which will be played Thursday at 8 p.m. ET in Memphis and broadcast on TNT.
