Playing without suspended star power forward Zach Randolph, the Memphis Grizzlies jumped all over the Thunder leading 36-27 after one yesterday in Oklahoma City.
The Thunder responded by taking a three point halftime lead outscoring Memphis 34-22 in the second.
OKC followed with another dominant quarter in the third and ultimately cruised to a 120-109 win.
Kevin Durant dropped 33 including 5-5 from deep and Russell Westbrook became just the second player (Rajon Rondo) in NBA history to have two triple-doubles in a Game 7 with 27 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds.
Oklahoma City moves on and will face the LA Clippers in the next round.
Game 7: Golden State at Los Angeles Clippers
Speaking of the Clippers, they defeated Golden State in the decisive game 7 last night at The Staples Center in what was one of the most exciting games so far this season.
Golden State shot 14-25 from behind the arc as well as 29-35 from the line. Still, it wasn't enough as the Clippers shot 55% overall for the game defeating the Warriors 126-121 behind 15 points and 18 rebounds from DeAndre Jordan.
Blake Griffin added 24 and Chris Paul 22 as two of the league's most high octane offenses both left it all on the floor.
Former Celtic guard Jordan Crawford had 12 points in just under 12 minutes off the bench for the Warriors.
