2014 NBA Playoffs:Memphis Grizzlies vs.
Oklahoma City Thunder Game 5April 29, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, 2nd seed Oklahoma City Thunder will host 7th seed Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of the Western Conference Playoffs at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. Game time is set at 9PM ET.

With the series tied at 2 games apiece, both Memphis and Oklahoma City will jostle for a pivotal Game 5 win. The Thunder would want to protect their home court as they strive for a back-to-back win in the series.

The Grizzlies may have another chance to steal home court but they need Zach Randolph to score and rebound more. Randolph has just made 36 percent of his shots throughout the series. He is clearly affected by the defense of Thunder's Sergei Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Oklahoma City Thunder as a 6.5-point favorite to beat the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night.
