(WMC) - Four overtimes. A tough game six loss at home. The surprise suspension of one key player and the possible injury of another. Can the Memphis Grizzlies close the deal in OKC Saturday night?  You have got to believe they can.

What started as a regular game day shoot around in OKC, turned into more questions about Saturday's pivotal game seven.

Concerning Tony Allen, the Grizzlies guard left shoot around at Chesapeake Energy Arena before media was allowed in, and before the team practice was officially over. Word from the Grizzlies is that Allen had an eye injury, initially putting into question whether the Allen, one of the Grizzlies top defenders, would see action in game seven.

Add that to Zach Randolph being suspended by the league and a gimpy Mike Conley, and beating the Thunder on their home court becomes an even tougher task.

"You know, I think it feels better, in the sense of mobility wise. Pain is still there, but nothing I can't play thru, I think," said Conley.

Conley dealing with a right hamstring pull, ZBo is out for hitting Steven Adams in the face during game six.

"Oh it's tough. Of course we would like him to play, but he's not able to.  We move on. We'll give it everything we got, no doubt about that," noted Grizzlies Center, Marc Gasol.

This is a team that has dealt with adversity all season; be it injuries or suspensions.
