Oklahoma City vs. Memphis Final: Thunder Tame Grizzlies 86-77

His streak might be over, but Kevin Durant is back to dropping 30 points with ease, and he did so again in OKC’s 86-77 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night.

The Durantula had 31 points, eight boards and eight assists, while Serge Ibaka had his 19th double-double of the season, with 21 points and 12 rebounds. By halftime, Ibaka already hit the double-double mark, with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

For the Grizzlies, Zach Randolph had a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds and Marc Gasol added 13 points.

Both of these teams had been on fire of late, with the Thunder having their 10-game winning streak snapped Saturday at the hands of the Washington Wizards. The Grizzlies had won six straight going into Monday’s game, which was the longest active NBA streak at the time.

Thanks to an 18-2 run near the end of the first half, OKC went up 51-36 at the half, and maintained that lead throughout the game. Their home dominance continues, as the Thunder are 21-3 at Chesapeake Arena.

With the win, Oklahoma City advances to 39-11 on the season. The Thunder next host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
