The Memphis Grizzlies completely locked down the Oklahoma City Thunder in an 85-74 victory Saturday at the FedExForum.

In true "Grit-n-Grind" fashion, the Grizzlies allowed almost no easy shots and held the Thunder to 34.6 percent shooting from the field. They also forced OKC to commit 17 turnovers.

On the other end, Memphis was led by Zach Randolph. He scored a game-high 21 points, and 10 of his 18 rebounds were offensive.

Marc Gasol chipped in with 15 points and 12 rebounds, while point guard Mike Conley added 10 points.

For the Thunder, Kevin Durant led the way with 15 points on 5-of-16 shooting. Westbrook was also 5-of-16, scoring 14 points. Both got the majority of their shots out of isolation sets, which were easy for the disciplined Grizzlies defense to key in on.

OKC's next game will be at home against the Orlando Magic on Monday at 8 p.m. ET. The Grizzlies will go on the road to take on the Phoenix Suns Monday at 9 p.m. ET.
