A come from behind victory from the Grizzlies on Friday, winning 95-83, forces a game 7 back in Oklahoma City.

In a must win game  for the Memphis Grizzlies, being down 3-2 in the series, Zach Randolph showed up big in the fourth quarter. Where he had 12 of his 30 points and took down 6 of his 13 rebounds. Randolph and Marc Gasol had struggled the previous two games in what many believe to be a superior front court to the Thunder.

Randolph had every aspect of his game flowing in game 6. His footwork was flawless at times and his 18 footer was on point. The Grizzlies are going to need this type of effort in game 7, including a big game from Gasol.

Considering, Durant finished with only 11 points, his career playoff low, and went 3-14 shooting. He was unable to make shots and was way too passive on the offensive end, settling for jump shots. The two time league leader in scoring needs to demand the ball and create his own offense, while opening up play for others like: Perkins,and Ibaka who combined for just 14 points in game 6.

Game 7
The Grizzlies will need to dominate the front court and keep Westbrook out of transition and into a half court, jump shooting game.

The Thunder will need a big bounce back game from Durant, good interior defense, and limit their amount of turnovers (16 TO’s in game 6).
