Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - Zach Randolph had 30 points and 13 rebounds and the Memphis Grizzlies staved off elimination Friday with a 95-83 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals.

The Grizzlies evened the series at 3-3, pulling away in the fourth quarter of a seesaw contest that featured several double-digit lead changes to force Game 7 in Oklahoma City on Sunday.

Russell Westbrook scored 27 to pace the Thunder, but Kevin Durant was held to just 11 points on 3-of-14 shooting.

The Thunder led by as many as 13 points, but couldn't hold off a Grizzlies team fighting for its season in front of a hopeful home crowd looking for a diversion from the recent floods in Memphis.
