Thunder Wrap-up

The TDP's Ben Johnson breaks down Game 3 between OKC and Memphis.


3. Free throws aren't always free

It's rare that Oklahoma City doesn't capitalize at the free-throw line. Yet that was the case at the FedEx Forum on Saturday.

The Thunder was 12 of 19 (63.2 percent) from the stripe, and Durant was 5 of 9.

Very uncharacteristic on both fronts.

Now the Thunder are trailing in a playoff series for the first time this season.

It was over when... Mike Conley buried two free throws with 15.5 seconds left. Conley's free throws were the icing on the cake after Durant missed two free throws and Derek Fisher missed a 32-foot 3-point attempt.

Quote of the night: "He is out of sorts right now." - Thunder radio voice Matt Pinto when Ibaka missed a point-blank layup in the third quarter.
