---------------------------------------------

 

With the loss of Westbrook to injury, things will be very tough for OKC in this round against one of if not the best defense in the league. Gasol & Z-Bo are the best front court in the league, so OKC's Ibaka and Perkins will have their hands full trying to slow them down. OKC will need steady contributions for Kevin Martin and Ibaka to make up for the loss of Westbrook. I expect Durant to continue his spectactular play, but I dont expect it to be enough to outlast a hot Grizzlies team. Give me the Grizzlies in 6 games over OKC.

This is all on the PG match ups - but I actually think OKC still takes this in 6.

Memphis will need to tidy up if they want to put OKC out. They could cause a 'shock', but I think OKC will take this in five or six.

That was a pathetic effort by Randolf as the clock ran out on regulation.

Poor DFish, well past his prime.

Nice inbound bud.

A possible Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors WCF?

Do want (SA will probably prevail, though. And I not counting the Thunder out, it's just funny to think about).

Huge Grizzlies fan right here. This is our year, no doubt. No better opportunity to win it all than now.

Kevin Durant in an elimination game at home goes 5-21 with 7 turnovers, including a miss at the end of the game that would have tied the game up. I figured this thread would have blown up with people discussing Durant's lack of clutch play, like we see all the time anytime that a certain other 4 time MVP has a poor shooting night (even in a win), but I see nothing about that here.

Ahh there it is, the clown coming to trash Durant when his beloved superstar was all over the court missing shots and flopping. Not to mention OKC was facing a formidable opponent in Memphis where Miami was facing a depleted Chicago team. Looks like blind love to me.

Hey somebody has to hold Durant accountable since you won't do it. If LeBron puts up a performance like that in an elimination game, you'd be posting live about it. You just argued that Durant is a better player, if so, apply the same standards.
