OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 35 points and hit a pair of jumpers in the final minute to lift the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 93-91 victory against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Derek Fisher poked the ball away from Mike Conley to spring Durant the other way and he pulled up to hit a shot with 11.1 seconds left to put Oklahoma City up 91-90. Thabo Sefolosha then deflected an inbounds pass, and Conley landed out of bounds while diving for the ball.

Reggie Jackson hit two free throws to make the lead three, and Quincy Pondexter was unable to hit all 3 of his free throws with 1.6 seconds left to tie it up.

Game 2 is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.
