MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Grizzlies have had three days off in their series with Oklahoma City for their longest break since the All-Star weekend, more than enough time to become a popular pick to win Western Conference this post-season. Giddy fans are tweeting about possible matchups with others wondering where a parade could be held. When the Grizzlies are out in the city, they hear from supporters with their tickets ready. "You hear it, but we doing a good job focusing," Memphis forward Zach Randolph said Friday of all the excitement. "We dont let that get to us. We dont worry about what people say. We focus and take each game one game at a time and focus on the game." That means Game 3 on Saturday with this best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal tied at 1-1, though the Grizzlies have the next two at home along and three of the final five if needed. The Grizzlies have won three straight on their home court in the post-season and are 17-1 going back to Feb. 8. Another sold-out crowd awaits at the FedExForum with the Grizzlies past their disappointment at missing the chance to return home with a 2-0 lead in this series. "Weve still got to do our part here at home," Grizzlies guard Mike Conley said. "We got to do our part and try to win both games at home in order for that road win to mean something." The Thunder lost their last visit to Memphis when Grizzlies centre Marc Gasol tipped in a bucket for a 90-89 win in overtime on March 20. Kevin Durant said they remain confident in what they know will be a tough series. "I dont think weve fallen off track," Durant said. "We dug ourselves a hole. Weve just got to go in there and worry about the next game and take it a possession at a time." The Grizzlies left Oklahoma City with the split after beating the Thunder 99-93 on Tuesday night. They want to better defend both Durant, leading all scorers this post-season with 37.3 points a game, and his teammates from the 3-point line. Kevin Martin hit three 3s in Game 1, while Derek Fisher scored 19 points in Game 2 after hitting four of five beyond the arc. Grizzlies forward Quincy Pondexter said they know they must better defend the perimeter with someone different stepping up every game this series for Oklahoma City. "They have some weapons, and we know that," Pondexter said. "And thats why theyre such a dangerous." The Grizzlies challenge is figuring out when to guard the shooter out beyond the arc at the risk of leaving Durant too much room to operate. The Grizzlies game plan is to try to take one or two players away, but Memphis guard Mike Conley said they still have to contest Durant as best they can. "When hes a playmaker, we got to do a better job helping and getting out to their shooters like Derek and then Jackson and Martin, all those guys whove been hitting 3s against us. So we got to do a lot better job at that," Conley said. "And if we can do that, we have a great chance to win." Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks has his own issues. The Grizzlies may rank eighth this post-season scoring 98.9 points a game, but they are averaging 105.3 points at home. Conley, Randolph and centre Marc Gasol give Memphis the only team with three players ranked in the top 20 in scoring in these playoffs. Brooks said Memphis scoring at home is definitely a concern. "They have a very good team that has an inside-outside attack," Brooks said. "We have to make sure that we control Conley much better than we did in the second game. Our bigs, our smalls, our wings, everybodys going to have to do a great job defensively to stop them from getting on a run." Memphis may have been the NBAs best in the regular season allowing only 89.3 points a game, but the Thunder ranked second holding opponents to 42.5 per cent shooting. That was just ahead of Memphis, the team with the defensive player of the year in Gasol, guard Tony Allen who finished fifth in that voting, and Conley -- the NBAs steals leader this season. So Brooks wants his Thunder to focus on preventing the Grizzlies from getting offensive rebounds and limiting their own turnovers. Memphis got 23 second-chance points and 29 off Oklahoma Citys 21 turnovers in Game 2. Fisher agrees, especially on the road. "You have to be even more careful with the basketball," Fisher said. "Thats something that in order to impact not just Mike Conley but all of their perimeter players, we have to keep from turning the basketball over and give ourselves a chance to get back and get our defence set."

Thursday night, in front of 5,265 at Shaw Park, Kevin Moesquit singled home Josh Mazzola with the winning run in the bottom of the 12th as the Fish battled back from an early 5-1 deficit and then a 7-5 deficit in the 12th to beat the Lincoln Saltdogs 8-7 in a thriller. The Goldeyes had runners in scoring position in the eighth, ninth, 10th and 11th innings, but couldnt get a clutch hit to bring home the winning run. Then in the bottom of the 12th, shortly after Lincoln had taken a 7-5 lead, they got a sacrifice fly from Fehlandt Lentini, a game-tying single from Luis Alen and then the winner from Moesquit. With the victory, the Goldeyes took three-of-four from Lincoln, won their fifth straight series, finished the 11-game homestand with a record of 8-3, improved to 37-33 on the season and pulled to within 5 1/2 games back of Fargo in the race for first in the American Associations North Division. The Goldeyes head to Fargo for a huge three-game series this weekend. Winnipeg is also now 3 ½ games behind the Gary SouthShore RailCats for the wild card. With the score tied 5-5 heading into the 12th inning, the Saltdogs drilled three straight singles off Goldeyes reliever Kaohi Downing to open the inning. David Espinosa led off with a single, Curt Smith singled and then Ian Gac singled home the go-ahead run. The single by Espinosa went off the glove of Goldeyes shortstop Mazzola, while the single by Gac went off the glove of second baseman Moesquit. After a walk to Matt Forgatch and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Brian Embery, Lincoln celebrated what appeared to be an insurance run. But the Fish didnt quit. In the bottom of the 12th against Lincolns lock-down closer R.J. Rodriguez, the Goldeyes thrilled the home crowd. Ryan Scoma led off with a single and then Casey Haerther and Josh Mazzola walked. Fehlandt Lentini hit a line shot to centre and Mike Coles made a sensational catch, but Scoma scored from third to make the score 7-6. Luis Alen theen singled to drive home Haerther with the tying run and Moesquit singled to right on a 3-2 count to score Mazzola with the game-winner.dddddddddddd It was a sensational ball game -- a game that featured the arm of Goldeyes left fielder Ryan Scoma, who threw out Lincolns Ian Gac at homeplate, not once but twice, including a game-saving assist in the top of the 10th. Lincoln opened the scoring with a run in the second on a sacrifice fly by Brian Embery and then added two in the third on a two-run homer by Gac. Winnipegs Amos Ramon hit a solo homer in the fourth to make it 3-1, but Lincoln put up two more in the top of the fifth to take a 5-1 lead. However, in the sixth, the Goldeyes put up a big, crooked number. Tyler Graham led off with a hustling double and after Ramon grounded out, Ray Sadler singled home Graham. Ryan Scoma popped out for the second out of the inning but then Casey Haerther singled, Josh Mazzola singled to drive home Sadler and then Fehlandt Lentini singled to bring home Haerther and Mazzola. With that, the Goldeyes had tied it at 5-5. The Goldeyes had 16 hits in the game. Leadoff man Tyler Graham went four-for-six with a stolen base and a run scored. Ramon, Scoma, Mazzola and Alen all had multi-hit games. Lentini finished with three RBI. Despite giving up two in the 12th, Downing (3-4, 3.07 ERA) got the win, while Rodriguez (0-2, 4.73 ERA) suffered the loss. He also blew his second save of the season in 25 opportunities. Five Goldeyes pitchers combined to strike out 14 Saltdogs. Starters Chris Salamida of the Goldeyes and Mike Burns of the Saltdogs were long gone by the time this one was decided. The Goldeyes will get on the bus Friday morning and head to Fargo to start on a three-game weekend series against the RedHawks. Matt Rusch (5-3, 4.29 ERA) will get the start for the Fish on Friday night, while Danny Gutierrez (0-1, 2.46 ERA) will take to the mound for Fargo.
