http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/3821/okc.jpghttp://img198.imageshack.us/img198/2259/77922595.jpg ___PG___http://img831.imageshack.us/img831/9624/97235456.jpghttp://img846.imageshack.us/img846/2613/memy.jpg.................................Russell Westbrook _________________l_______ Mike Conley

The Breakdown:

Statistically speaking, there's no contest. Westbrook averaged 21.9 ppg/8.2 apg/4.6 rpg/1.9 spg in the regular season vs. Conley's 13.7 ppg/6.5 apg/3.0 rpg/1.8 spg.

During the Spurs series, Conley improved to 14.3 ppg, 6.2 apg and 4.5 rpg. Westbrook's line in the Nuggets series was 23.8 ppg, 6.2 apg, 6.0 rpg.

Athletically speaking, again no contest. All-Star Westbrook is too quick, too fearless, too everything, for Conley to contain. Conley is solid and very good in the pick-and-roll, but he's not at Westbrook's level.

Westbrook's confidence may have been shaken with the backlash hurled his way for his Game 4 performance (12-of-30 shooting and failed attempts to win the game by hoisting late erratic threes), but he remembered Durant was playing in Game 5.

Advantage: Thunder


http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/3821/okc.jpghttp://img163.imageshack.us/img163/4757/85385920.jpg ___SG___http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/3732/75437095.jpghttp://img846.imageshack.us/img846/2613/memy.jpg
.....................l............Thabo Sefolosha ________l_______l___l_______ Tony Allen

The Breakdown:

As Thunder fans know Allen turns it up a notch, a huge notch, when he plays this team. In the four regular season games against the Thunder, Allen posted a season-high average of 18.8 ppg, along with ten total steals. However, he also posted 17 fouls, the most against any team.

Sefolosha, like Allen, is lockdown perimeter specialist. As good as Sefolosha is (not offensively though), Allen's intensity and leadership, both strong factors in the Grizzlies' success, are clear advantages. Watch for Allen to share in duties to guard Westbrook if Conley struggles.

Advantage: Grizzlies


http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/3821/okc.jpghttp://img69.imageshack.us/img69/2249/13080501.jpg ___SF___http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/272/53687508.jpghttp://img846.imageshack.us/img846/2613/memy.jpg
...........................l.........Kevin Durant ____________________________ Sam Young

The Breakdown:

You can bet the Grizzlies are working on their game plan now trying to answer the magic question: How can Durant be limited?

Young will start in the position; a combination of Shane Battier, Allen and Young will do their level best to guard the wily forward, who happens to be the league's back-to-back scoring champion and two-time All-Star.

Durant averaged 32.4 points in the Denver series (with 3.2 three-pointers per game) despite hands in his face and double-teaming efforts. His length and agility allows him to get a shot off from almost anywhere. Plus, he's added "clutch" to his resume. Battier has the highest probability of playing the most minutes guarding Durant without fouling; his ability to alter shots cannot be overlooked.

Advantage: Thunder


http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/3821/okc.jpghttp://img153.imageshack.us/img153/2927/63469302.jpg ___PF___http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/8923/89928283.jpghttp://img846.imageshack.us/img846/2613/memy.jpg
........................l.............Serge Ibaka ____________l_______________ Zach Randolph

The Breakdown:

The battle of the bigs is key to this game (we're including Kendrick Perkins and Marc Gasol here, too). The Gasol/Randolph tandem was too much for the Spurs. Facing this type of size in the playoffs is precisely why Thunder general manager Sam Presti acquired Perkins and veteran Nazr Mohammed.

It's imperative to note that the 3-1 Memphis vs. Thunder record in the regular season was without Perkins. Again, the bigs matchup is what to watch.

Randolph had an outstanding regular season and looks to repeat in the postseason. He averaged 20.1 ppg/12.2 rpg during the season and 21.5 ppg/9.2 rpg in the Spurs series. In Game 6, he scored 31 points (17 came in the fourth quarter) and grabbed 11 rebounds.

Ibaka, at only 21 years of age, is turning into a defensive beast and offensive threat. In the five playoffs game vs. Denver, he posted 10.2 ppg, 11.2 rebounds and 4.8 bpg (nine blocks in Game 5). In fact, he logged his best scoring and rebound record during the two road games in Denver.

In those four regular-season games, Randolph was guarded by ex-Thunder Jeff Green. It's a different picture now with Ibaka in place.

Advantage: Even


http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/3821/okc.jpghttp://img64.imageshack.us/img64/8949/96290106.jpg ___C___http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/9490/93004268.jpghttp://img846.imageshack.us/img846/2613/memy.jpg
....................................Kendrick Perkins ______________l__________ Marc Gasol

The Breakdown:

The difference here is that Gasol (14.2 ppg/12.3 rpg in Round 1) can play more effectively on both ends of the court, while Perkins (5.4 ppg/6.6 in Round 1) makes his money protecting the rim.
There's a lot of unknown here since the two haven't had the pleasure of meeting this year. Gasol is riding high on confidence and has answered the call to step up in the postseason. Tough-minded Perkins has played just 21 games in total with his new team. Is handling the 7'1" Gasol too much to expect? How will Gasol respond to Perkins' considerably physical-style of play?

Advantage: Even

In that situation, even thou he scored, Westbrook made a selfish and stupid decision. Durant is the leader and star of the team. Therefore if Durant asks you to slow it down and run a set, Wesbrook needs to defer to him.

I have a feeling that Westbrook's ego will prevent OKC from succeeding.

Huh? His defense has bee great since coming to OKC. He can't guard Gasol because he's too big and Randolph is too much of a midrange scorer for him to guard him.

We all know his offense was never there. His defense and presence helps but he can't do a thing to stop the Grizzlie bigs. Nobody can.

Yeah you can say the game looks sloppy but that usually the other team looking sloppy... The Grizz had 10 steals this game and 11 turnovers, Conley had 12 ast and only 2 TO's. They never shoot too many 3's and alot of the scoring is in the paint. They play lockdown D, they box out and hustle hard. I'm not sure what you're watching on your T.V.

They're 50% hustle, and 50% sloppy crap. I don't like when a team makes shots when they're not even looking at the goal. Memphis does that quite often. You can't say they don't, because we all know that they rely on a lot of lucky shots. There have been quite a few of them lately. The other night, it had become quite clear that they played WAY over their heads in game 1. They were still on cloud 9 from the San Antonio series, and we were simply flat. The deeper we got into the series, the more they forgot how to play on the road. We made so many mistakes in our road losses that it's not even funny. That's the only reason they won games 3 and 6. You can talk about their hustle crap all you want, but the truth is....we screwed up and it affected the outcome of those games. The point is, we fought back in this series after losing game 1 and we've been the better looking team overall, and it's gonna be REAL HARD to beat us at home. They'll have to play perfect on Sunday, and that still might not be enough. They had a good run, but it's time to put those little children to bed. Dallas is waiting for us.

Off game or not, he didn't do anything to keep his team within the game besides attempting to score.

That's why people consider him overrated. He's not a Top 5 player yet. He's too thin to guard certain players, therefore he has no post game. He's not a great passer yet. He rebounds inconsistently.
