Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Memphis Grizzlies Playoff Series Thread

61 posts in this topic

Kevin Durant and Westbrook will try to lead their team past the Memphis Grizzlies and their physical bigs Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. Memphis eliminated OKC last year but that was without Westbrook so I pick OKC in 5, maybe 6.

If Memphis wants to win this series they need to start Tony Allen.

KD will absolutely abuse Tayshaun Prince. The Grizz need to put Lee back on the bench, start Allen and let him guard KD while putting Prince on Sefalosha.

I hate this matchup for Memphis.

Memphis is a good defensive team but mainly in the paint, unfortunately for Memphis; OKC doesn't play that much in the paint.

Memphis beat them last year. Think OKC has revenge on their mind this year. Don't think they will be screwing around at all this series.

Now the problem with Tony Allen is that he is too small to guard Durant.

This is why I for one am thankful for MKG. He may not give us a bunch of offense but he's got a great body to matchup with the James's, Durant's, Anthony's, and George's of the league.

Unfortunately they don't have the same coach that got them there.

Firing Hollins was foolish.

Memphis has been missing every shot. OKC wins this one in 5.

    • And yes, Smitty would've been absolutely hell on wheels in MMA.
    • Smitty would've tried to have literally killed Talib for that poo he pulled on Philly in the SB.
    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
