OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Memphis Grizzlies might have all summer to think their dismal effort Thursday night. The Grizzlies could have closed out the Thunder at home, but Oklahoma City jumped on them from the start and rolled to a 20-point victory. Now, Memphis must play Game 7 on the road Saturday without scoring leader Zach Randolph and possibly point guard Mike Conley. Randolph was suspended for punching Steven Adams in the jaw late in Game 6. The Grizzlies had no comment on the NBAs decision after landing in Oklahoma City, according to team spokesman Jason Wallace. Conley strained his right hamstring in the loss and is struggling to recover. Memphis backup point guard, Nick Calathes, is out for the series because of a drug suspension, meaning No. 3 point guard Beno Udrih will likely carry more responsibility against Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson, two of the quickest point guards in the NBA. Conley said Friday that he plans to play, but he expects to be sore. "Me being banged up, youre going to have to ask more out of different guys, see a lot of guys step up," he said. "Were still excited and confident going into tomorrows game, regardless of injuries and how last nights game went." Memphis coach Dave Joergers team has dealt with injuries and lineup changes all season. Tony Allen missed 27 games this season, Marc Gasol 23 and Conley nine. Kosta Koufos and Ed Davis will likely fill Randolphs minutes. "This is it," Joerger said. "Whatever you want to say about the season, its all come down to one game. Certainly, for us to have the best chance to win, we have to play better than we did last night." Even with the issues the Grizzlies face, nothing has been certain in this matchup. The home team has won just twice in a series that has featured four overtime games. Thunder star Kevin Durant said Game 7 is like playing in the NCAA tournament. "You dont have no other option but to win," he said. "You cant get the game back. Its Game 7. You have to be ready to go." The teams have met in the playoffs three of the past four years. Oklahoma City beat Memphis in seven games in the 2011 Western Conference semifinals. "I remember the feeling afterward, and I dont want to repeat that," Gasol said. If the Grizzlies cant control Westbrook, a repeat is possible. Westbrook, who at times has played recklessly in the series, scored an efficient 25 points on Thursday and engineered an offence that shot 49 per cent. His willingness to set up his teammates helped Durant score 14 points in the first quarter. "He was really mindful of looking for guys and finding guys early, picking and choosing his spots well," Durant said. Durant bounced back from his recent struggles with 36 points and 10 rebounds in Game 6. He made 6 of 10 shots in the first quarter Thursday night to set the tone and went 11 for 23 from the field. "Kevin just came out with a different kind of assertiveness last game," Oklahoma City guard Caron Butler said. "He was just real precise and he was vocal." The Grizzlies said they cant allow Durant to get going like that again or their season might be over. "We have to be better at finding him," Allen said. "We understand what he wants to do. Weve just got to be the aggressors on the defensive end. We understand coming into this series, hes going to be an MVP-type player, and we just have to be ready." Thunder coach Scott Brooks, who rarely makes lineup changes, started Butler at shooting guard over Thabo Sefolosha in Game 6. Butler, a better offensive threat than Sefolosha, helped space the floor and opened lanes for Durant and Westbrook. Brooks said Butler will remain in the starting lineup for Saturdays game. Brooks also played Adams more than usual in Game 6, and he responded with five blocks in 21 minutes on Thursday. Brooks said Adams earned the increase in playing time with his hard work in practice and his improvement throughout the season. The game could come down to tempo. In Games 1 and 6, the two matchups with a quicker pace, the Thunder won by double digits. Memphis turned the other four games into slower-paced, grind-it-out overtime battles and won three of them. "It makes for great storylines, but it comes down to playing good basketball," Brooks said. "Executing on both ends, making shots along the way, just continuing to play together and understanding that theres going to be some runs by either team that you have to stay focused and stay together through, and just being committed to what we want to do each possession."

He is cautiously optimistic that a medical procedure performed in early October will finally fix a nerve problem near his right thumb that has nagged him since the 2013 season.My hope is it gets back to 100 per cent. Right now, I dont feel anything and I havent been able to say that in two years, Braun said. It would hurt shaking hands, writing — doing everything activities — and I dont feel that at all. Im excited about that.Days after the end of a disappointing season, Braun had cryotherapy, a procedure involving the application of extreme cold. The procedure was performed at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles.Braun was suspended the final 65 games of the 2013 season for his connection to the Biogenesis doping scandal. The Brewers had hoped the extra rest going into last off-season would address the problem going into 2014.For a while, that plan seemed to be working. Braun got off to a hot start in spring training. The career .306 hitters average was up to .327 on June 1, though his power numbers were down. The average slowly dipped in the second half. His struggles at the plate epitomized Milwaaukees frustrating September, when a team-wide slump dropped the Brewers out of first place and out of the playoffs.ddddddddddddThe 2011 NL MVP finished hitting a career-low .266 with 19 homers and 81 RBIs.I really believe if I was anywhere near healthy the season would end up differently, Braun said. Hopefully this thing continues to feel good ... and I can get back to being one of the best players in the league.Braun said his hand felt amazing after taking swings in the weeks after the procedure. He is in his typical off-season routine now, and doesnt plan to resume baseball activities until late December.The Brewers began their off-season by trading for Adam Lind from Toronto for pitcher Marco Estrada. The addition of Lind fills two glaring needs since he is a left-handed hitting first baseman.Other than that, Milwaukee has been relatively quiet so far. The club picked up starter Yovani Gallardos $13 million option. Third baseman Aramis Ramirez is returning to the Brewers after the two sides picked up the $14 million mutual option.Manager Ron Roenicke is also coming back, while Darnell Coles is taking over for Johnny Narron as hitting coach.I dont think our failure had anything to do with (Roenicke) managing, it had to do with us playing, Braun said. So definitely happy to have him back.Otherwise, Braun is also enjoying life as the father of a 2-month-old daughter. He said he wasnt getting much sleep, but otherwise called fatherhood indescribably beautiful. ' ' '
