Jackson, Thunder outlast Memphis in OT to even series

Memphis, TN ( - Reggie Jackson bailed out the Thunder.

On a night Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook struggled shooting the ball, Jackson supplied a playoff career-best 32 points to boost Oklahoma City to a 92-89 overtime win over Memphis to even their Western Conference quarterfinal series after four games.

Jackson was averaging five points over the first three contests of the series, but stepped up big in the third straight OT contest in this set. He went 11- of-16 from the floor and pulled down nine rebounds.

Durant had 15 points and 13 boards and Westbrook totaled 15 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, but the duo combined to shoot 11-of-45. Serge Ibaka provided 12 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks for the second-seeded Thunder, who shot 36.7 percent.

Marc Gasol had 23 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Grizzlies, who had a chance to tie the game at the end but Mike Conley missed a 3-point shot.

Game 5 of the best-of-seven set is Tuesday at Oklahoma City.
