MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) – If the Grizzlies win Thursday night, they head to the semifinals. In anticipation of what will be an historic game Mayor A C Wharton is calling for your support.

After a record overtime win against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday, the Memphis Grizzlies are set to return to FedExForum on Thursday night to try and end the series against the Thunder.

In a statement, Mayor Wharton says the fact that the Grizz are up three games to two against one of the top-ranked teams in the NBA is noteworthy.

He went on to say this is why we believe.

"It reminds us that in addition to our signature grit and grind, our belief is what has brought us to this point. And, with that belief, we can pull off a huge upset right here at home," commented Mayor Wharton.

On Thursday, May 1, all Memphians are asked to wear your Grizz gear and Grizzlies colors, take photos and post them to social media using #believememphis.

There are still tickets available for game six if you want to catch the action. Tickets on Stub Hub start at $60; a court side view will cost you nearly $1,900.

There are just over 1,700 tickets still available online.

If the Grizzlies win they'll move on to the semifinals to face either the Los Angeles Clippers or the Golden State Warriors.

If Memphis loses game seven will be played in Oklahoma City on Saturday.
