    Default 2011 NBA Playoffs: (4) Oklahoma City vs. (8) Memphis

    This series should be better than people think. Memphis is a very unique team, and they have a slew of tough defenders to throw at Durant and Westbrook.

    Prediction: OKC in 7

    I think both teams match up pretty evenly but, in the end, OKC has more talent.

    Thunder in 7.

    The Grizz won the season series 3-1. That said, I'm not betting against the Thunder. Thunder is 6

    As DC mentioned in another thread, it's cool that one of these teams will be in the WCF's. Times are definitely a changin.

    Grizzlies will give them all they have, but the home court ultimately leads OKC to prevail in game 7.

    Two fun squads to watch, IMO. Think it will be a very competitive series. Hard to imagine the 8 seed pulling another upset to get to the WCF.

    What the heck, I'll take Memphis in six.

    I'll take OKC, Memphis, or, hell, even Dallas. Anyone but the Lakers.

    Thank you! I want the Thunder to win it all at this point any way, but I definitely don't want the Grizz to win because I don't think they could stop the Lakers like OKC could.

    The Grizzlies are at a huge disadvantage in game #1, having less than 40 hours between an extremely emotional win and this game, is almost impossible. And I am a big believer in whoever wins game #1 wins the series - if the teams are close to even

    Scheduling losses happen in the playoffs. The Grizzlies could have avoided this by closing out Game 5 when they had the chance.

    I like the Thunder in 6. They've got more options than San Antonio to slow down Randolph & Gasol (look for Nick Collison to have a big role in this series). The Westbrook - Conley matchup shoud be interesting. But I like Durant as a closer over Randolph.

    Grizzlies look great so far, don't see tired or hung over so far. Figure it will probably catch up with them eventually. But as I was saying during the spurs series, the Griz are really good, Thunder might win this series but they will ned the home court advantage and a few breaks to do so

    Sonics fans have to be sick to their stomach at the thought that this team will be contending for the Finals year after year for a looooooong time.

    Memphis is doing whatever they want to do to OKC.

    How can anyone root for the Thunder and Clay Bennett?

    Yes, the Grizzlies moved from Vancouver but they were an expansion team that was never supported, unlike the Sonics in Seattle.

    Because it's not Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka, and the rest of their likable players fault that their owner's a jerk.

    Because people care infinitely more about players than they do owners. Durant, Westbrook, and the rest of that squad are very likable. To the average fan watching, they are going to trump the owner by leaps and bounds.

    Just because the owner is a jerk and Seattle got screwed doesn't mean that the team isn't likable. And the Oklahoma fans are great too. Regardless of how they got the team, it's cool to see a city that never had pro sports all of the sudden have an awesome team to root for. And they deserve it with the way they supported the Hornets for those two years.
