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

.....................l...............Tony Allen ________l________l___l_______ Thabo Sefolosha

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

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

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

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

How is the matchup between gasol and perkins even? Although Perkins is the better defender, he isnt the better rebounder. Both gasol and perkins play Defense, but only Gasol is the two way player. Gasol can affect a game on both offense and defense and is a much better rebounder than perkins. How exactly is this matchup even?

I actually like the Grizzlies' chances in this game, but normally in game 7's, it comes down to star power as well as the HCA, something OKC clearly has the advantage. Their crowd is great, just like the Grizzlies' is.

Yeah OKC wasn't as tired. Their scoring comes from westbrook and durant, guards who are in excellent shape. Grizz play through their bigs, who dont have the endurance that okc has.

Huh? Since when stats define the overall of a player's game? When it comes down to Durant vs Melo it has to be about stats right?

Melo is a better post player, rebounder and has done it for more than 4 years. If stats mean that much Kevin Love > Dwight Howard, Tim Duncan, Gasol.

everything about every player comes down to stats. If you want to make an intangibles argument then go ahead and do that, It has some merit. Its just impossible to quantify and impossible to be objective about.

LOL, what? Durant has won a scoring title, he's already gotten passed the first round, and Melo makes me long for the days of Keith Van Horn and Tim Thomas with his horrendous defense.

This is a compliment?

So Melo has no scoring title are you telling me game on the line he wouldn't whoop Durant? and lets not act like Durant on defense is Ron Artest or Bruce Bowen.
