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.
Re: So how do the Grizzles match up against the Thunder?
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
