3OT’s didn’t help.
Russell Westbrook broke out a pair of Black/Blue Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011‘s. Then he proceeded to chuck up a bunch of shots but ultimately beat the Grizzlies silly with 40 points to help the Thunder grab a 133-123 win in three overtimes. Kevin Durant (Nike Zoom KD III) was no slouch, scoring 35 with 13 rebounds, 1 assist and 4 steals. Westbrook has been switching between the Hyperfuse 2011 and the original Hyperfuse lately. Zach Randolph (Nike Air Max Fly By) had a huge game of 34 and 16, and 6’6” Greivis Vasquez came off the bench in his Under Armour Micro G Blur‘s to score 14 and handle point guard duties down the stretch. The series, now tied 2-2, resumes tomorrow night.
In Boston, the Celtics couldn’t hold a six point lead and the game eventually went into overtime where the Heat outexecuted them to take the 98-90 win and a 3-1 series lead. LeBron James unleased a Black/White pair of his LeBron 8 PS for 35 and 14, while D-Wade took the court in some Black/Red/Grey Jordan Fly Wade‘s for 28 and 9. Gimpy-armed Rajon Rondo managed 10 points in White/Green Hyperfuse 2011’s, Paul Pierce notched 27 in Green/White Nike Air Legacy 2‘s, and Ray Allen scored 17 in White/Green Jordan Phase 23 Hoops. KG, after playing a monster game 3, turned in a meager 7 and 10 in his “152-120” ANTA KG 1. Miami looks to seal the deal Wednesday night.
