They match up nicely against Thunder, Grizzlies in 4.

Analysis of Grizzlies vs. Thunder
 
Who wins in the Grizzlies vs. Thunder series?

I got Thunder in 6.
Kevin Durant is just too good, and the Thunder have depth at every position.
This is the series where the Grizzlies will really miss Gay's scoring, since they will need that extra punch and won't have it.
Grizzlies will be tough in every game, but Thunder in 6.

In my mind Memphis matches up with almost any team very well.

I think their front-court is better than OKC's, and they have two amazing defenders in Tony Allen and Shane Battier. It should be an interesting series.

In the end, I think OKC is just too talented, and will probably take this series in 6 games

I'm dead serious when i say I don't like the OKC chances against the Grizzlies, they matched up badly even before watching the MEM-SAS series.

T. Allen & Battier are going to give Durant a tough time, but I expect Russell Westbrook to have a huge series. Thunder in 5.

Thunder in 7. HCA will be huge for OKC. That's a hard place to play.

I can see Memphis taking this, seriously.

MEM in 5-6.

memphis is a very solid team that can give serious trouble to anyone. they just dont have the talent of other teams like lakers or thunder. marc gasol vs pau gasol is a perfect example, marc is a great big man, hard worker and disciplined in every aspect of the game (the dream of any coach really), but pau is more talented.

by the way (OT) its funny how spain has all these short and talented guys in football while their main strength in basketball is precisely the opposite, and with ibaka joining them that will hold true for a few years

Gonna be a tough one, OKC in 7 though. In KD we trust! :bowdown:

Hopefully a long series. Personally I see it going 6-7...
