Recap

Grizzlies 107, Thunder 97: Rudy Gay scored a season-best 28 points and Zach Randolph had 20 points and 11 rebounds to help Memphis win its sixth straight game while snapping host Oklahoma City’s five-game winning streak.

Kevin Durant scored a season-high 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Thunder, but the Grizzlies were able to maintain a double-digit lead for most of the final quarter while improving to 6-1. Marc Gasol added 14 points for Memphis.

Oklahoma City pulled within 97-89 on a dunk by Kendrick Perkins with 4:18 to play. Gasol and Randolph followed with back-to-back baskets to get the Memphis lead back to 12, and the Grizzlies held the Thunder without a field goal for nearly four minutes.

Serge Ibaka had 17 points and four blocks and Russell Westbrook had 17 points and 13 assists for the Thunder, who were playing for the sixth time in nine nights. Oklahoma City shot 48.6 percent from the field but committed 15 turnovers to just eight by the Grizzlies.

Memphis trailed by 10 points after one quarter before outscoring the Thunder 36-15 in the second. The Grizzlies scored the final 10 points of the half for a 56-45 lead.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Durant’s 30-point outing was his first of the season and a league-best 102nd since the beginning of the 2009-10 campaign. … Randolph has produced double-doubles in all seven games but was ejected with 2:05 to play after a verbal squabble with Perkins, who was also tossed. … Oklahoma City hit all 17 of its free throws over the first three quarters but was just 4-for-9 in the final stanza.
