With the series tied, Memphis travels to Oklahoma City to try and capture an elusive third victory.

SB Nation 2014 NBA Playoff Bracket

The Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder went to overtime three times in the first four games of their first-round series. On Tuesday, the Grizzlies and Thunder meet in Oklahoma City with the series tied, 2-2.

Tony Allen has been the story of the series for Memphis, combining late-game heroics with dominant defense and rebounding. Allen has been able to at least slow Kevin Durant several times, and he will need to be on his game Tuesday.

For the Thunder, Durant's offense should be a main factor. In Saturday night's game, the Oklahoma City star was held to just 15 points on 5-of-21 shooting while grabbing 13 rebounds. Against a tough Memphis defense, Durant's scoring ability holds the key to a Thunder win. Reggie Jackson stepped up in Game 4, and the Thunder need offensive consistency in an already bland Scott Brooks system to beat Memphis at full strength.

Oklahoma City is reeling after having to face a battle-hardened Memphis squad in the No. 2 vs. No. 7 matchup in the West. By getting a win at home, the Thunder can reassert themselves as they head back to the Grindhouse for Game 6.

Game time: 9 p.m. ET

Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City
