Thunder 100, Grizzlies 86: By The Numbers

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

A look at the Thunder's Game 1 victory against Memphis by the numbers:

1 – The number of home teams who pulled out a win on Saturday. The higher-seeded Raptors, Pacers and Clippers all lost Game No. 1 in their respective matchups, with only the Thunder pulling out a victory.

23:58 – The amount of time that elapsed in the opening half before Memphis managed to make a shot outside of the paint. James Johnson buried a 3-pointer with two seconds left in the first half. Memphis missed its first 18 jump shot attempts.

33 – Combined points for Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in the first half on 13-of-25 shooting.

34 – Combined points for the Grizzlies in the first half on 12-of-48 shooting.

45 – Even the easy ones weren't falling for Memphis in the first 24 minutes. Memphis shot 45 percent (9-of-20) from the free-throw line. Oklahoma City took full advantage of its opportunities, converting on 100 percent (11-of-11) of its attempts.

156 – The number of consecutive sellouts for Oklahoma City at Chesapeake Energy Arena. That streak is unlikely to end any time soon.

2 – The Thunder's one-time 25-point cushion was trimmed down to two on a Mike Miller 3-pointer with nine minutes left in the fourth quarter.

15-3 – Responding immediately to Miller's 3, Serge Ibaka dunked on the ensuing possession to spark a 15-3 Thunder run that swelled the lead back to 14 with 5:30 remaining.

10 – The number of blocked shots for OKC and No. 10 came in style when Serge Ibaka spiked a Memphis shot attempt out to half court where Durant caught it in stride for a fastbreak slam that really put the game out of reach with less than two minutes remaining.

32 – Memphis might have outscored Oklahoma City by 18 (31-13) in the third quarter, but OKC dominated the other three periods, outpacing the Grizzlies by 32 in the first (13), second (9) and fourth (10) quarters.

4 – The Thunder improved to 4-1 against Memphis this season and is 4-0 against the Grizzlies with Russell Westbrook in the lineup. With No. 0 on the floor, OKC has won those four games by an average of 11.3 points.

28.6 – KD's career playoff scoring average. That wasn't hurt by his 33-point showing on Saturday.

15 – After Saturday's win against Memphis, the Thunder is 15 victories away from an NBA title.
