Big Minutes This Morning In Memphis

Westbrook, Durant, Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, all over 50 minutes. (LeBron also goes 50 minutes for Miami in another game).

Durant, ZBo, Gasol, all over 55 minutes.

3 guys over 55 minutes in the same playoff game??? Third time in 20 years, other two times -- the Bulls were involved:

June 19, 1993 -- NBA Finals -- rare loss by Michael at home
1 Michael Jordan G 1993-06-13 CHI PHO Loss 1game started 57minutes played
2 Dan Majerle G 1993-06-13 PHO @ CHI W 1 59
3 Scottie Pippen F 1993-06-13 CHI PHO L 1 56
4 Kevin Johnson G 1993-06-13 PHO @ CHI W 1 62
5 B.J. Armstrong G 1993-06-13 CHI PHO L 1 58

WOW -- five guys played 56+
