The Oklahoma City Thunder routed the Grizzlies 104-84 Thursday night in Memphis to force a game seven in their first round playoff series.

After a subpar game five, Thunder star Kevin Durant erupted for 36 points and ten rebounds.  Russell Westbrook added 25 for the Thunder.

Oklahoma City led by 15 at the half and Memphis never got any closer the rest of the game.

Marc Gasol had 17 points and Zach Randolph 16 for Memphis. Guard Mike Conley strained his right hamstring, briefly returned and left for good with 8:48 left.

Game seven is Saturday in Oklahoma City.
