Thunder Vs. Grizzlies Score: Kevin Durant, O.J. Mayo Off To Hot Starts

On Saturday afternoon, Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals is underway. After a lively first quarter, the underdog Memphis Grizzlies lead the Oklahoma City Thunder by a 22-20 score.

O.J. Mayo has come off the bench to lead his Grizzlies with eight points thus far, having drawn a couple of fouls and made all four of his free throw opportunities. For the Thunder, Kevin Durant leads with nine points. Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka has come up big defensively, having already recorded three blocks. The Grizzlies trailed 15-10 before storming back in the final two minutes of the first quarter.

The series is tied at one game apiece. The Grizzlies are trying to reach the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history; meanwhile, the Thunder haven't reached the conference finals since 1996, when they reached the NBA Finals as the Seattle SuperSonics.
