Thunder, Grizzlies look to control pace in Game 2
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Pace was a word in fashion after Oklahoma City's 100-86 win over Memphis in their first-round NBA playoff opener.
The Thunder controlled the pace during the first half by pushing the ball and scoring in transition in building a lead that at one point was 25 points. The Grizzlies were able to slow the game in the third quarter and outscore Oklahoma City by 18.
Memphis cut the lead to four points during the third quarter and to two in the fourth quarter, but the Grizzlies tired and Kevin Durant scored 13 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter as the Thunder pulled away for the win.
Game 2 is Monday in Oklahoma City.
