Not so fast, Oklahoma City. After a decisive win in Game 1, the Thunder fell to the Memphis Grizzlies last night in overtime. After an explosive night from Kevin Durant and a late Thunder Rally, Memphis was able to hold them off to pick up a 111-105 road win and even up the series at 1-1. Zach Randolph came up big for the Grizzlies with 25 points, while Mike Conley got busy with a 19 point, 12 assist double-double. With things tied up, they’ll meet in Memphis for Game 3 on Thursday night.

Monday night’s second postseason match-up was on the other end of the spectrum as the Los Angeles Clippers annihilated Golden State 138-98. The 40-point win margin broke a LAC playoff record and regained some momentum before Thursday’s road game in Oakland. Blake Griffin went off for the Clippers, posting a game-high 35 points in the playoff version of his unofficial Jordan Brand signature shoe.

Earlier in the day, prolific runner Meb Keflezighi became the first American male to win the Boston Marathon since 1983 with a time of 2 hours, 8 minutes, and 37 seconds, which was 11 seconds ahead of second place Wilson Chebet. Find out more about Meb’s milestone shoes after the jump.
