So the Grizzlies and Blazers tie for the longest winning streaks to end the season at five each. OKC really stumbled down the stretch. They went 5-4 in April with some seemingly mediocre efforts against two poor teams even with heavy minutes for Durant. Hopefully this is a sign that the Grizzlies can take the first game.

Here we go, with OKC there is a fair chance. Much better chance than with SAS.

I don't trust Joerger much to make the best decisions after the unnecessary Conley rush and offensive-foul final 20sec of Mavs game but if somehow Grizz can contain Westbrook and keep him within 14-16 points they can beat OKC in 6, but if Durant explodes for 35+ which is easy for him then Grizz will fall in 6. The key to win is westbrook since no one can defend Durant, it takes Kareem or Wilt to defend someone 6'9" who can rise to 10 feet and shoot accurately. You can put the 6'10" Davis on him to get him tired a little so he starts missing by the 4th quarter. That's all one can hope for with Durant.

Ed Davis would get abused by Durant, I hope Joerger doesn't go with that matchup. Let Tay/Tony/JJ wear him down throughout 4 quarters.

These times are Eastern. The thread uses Central -- Memphis time.

Out of all the things he could possibly be blamed for, you blame him for that?

Grizz took OKC to 7 when they had James Harden and should/could have won that series if not for the 3 OT game, They destroyed them last year without Westbrook, and the overall series all time since they moved to OKC from Seattle has been equal across the board basically. I don't understand why most think we are going to get blown away by them. If I were OKC I would be afraid.. Very afraid. Grizz have been playing very good basketball starting with that Miami game. The PHX and Dallas games showed that we are making the necessary plays down the stretch to win playoff basketball games. I'm thrilled that we got the 7th seed and get to play OKC because I honestly think we are the better team. They may have KD and Westbrook but we rely on team basketball and thats what wins in the playoffs. See the SA Spurs. Marc needs to be aggressive the whole series and Courtney needs to hit every shot he takes. Let's go grab game 1 in that annoying Chesapeake Arena and bring this sucker to the Grindhouse 1-1, or 2-0. Grit Grind!

 

EDIT: I'm saving my 1000th post for a GRIZZ WIN on Saturday!

We need to win this first game. If so, we win in 6.

 

What are the chances of James Johnson getting some pretty good mins? I like his chances of slowing down KD early.

I will be there for this game. I have a really good track record in playoff basketball games with the only loss being game 2 against San Antonio last year in OT.

This series is a wonderful way to add more fans to Grizz nation. Thanks to matching up to NBA "Darlings" Durant and Westbrook we will now have prime-time viewing slots on major networks.

 

Going to the playoffs four years in a row and having great series against Clippers and Thunder is best way to spread Grizz Fever. Emerging victorious in this series will go a long way in changing Free Agents views on coming to Memphis and raise our glass ceiling with National Broadcast.

I really hope Joeger has been saving JJ for the Playoff so teams wont think twice about him. Back when he was playing he added a different aspect to our team that teams weren't used to. We can't go in with the same 8 or nine guys Joeger has been playing and expect to win this series. JJ has to get some regular minutes against Durant, cause he will force Durant to play defense.

Every year some fringe guys BLOW UP in the playoffs ... make a name for themselves ... on the BIG STAGE !

 

This year we may see Mr. Johnson introduce himself.

Ron Ron disagrees with you both.

 

Ron Tillery:

It's a situation of no consequence to the Grizzlies' success. That's not a knock on James Johnson. He did an admirable job when the Griz were really banged up. But they are healthy now and I don't blame Joerger for going with the guys he trusts and who are more disciplined players. Johnson has a great attitude, by the way. He'll probably play now only in case of injury or foul trouble.

 

This is actually how i see it playing out myself. I mean PHO game was for our playoff lives AND Mavs game was to avoid the deathstrike. Did JJ even sniff the court against two teams that he actually had productive games against previously?? Joerger is going to shorten rotation like he promised. So we better hope Tayshaun drinks some extra RedBull because he playing all the meaningful minutes.

 

If we see JJ then that means its an elimination game and we are down by 20 in the 4th.

Dave has been going with one offensive wing/one defensive wing in his rotations: Lee and Prince in the starters, Allen and Miller off the bench. If it gets to the last minutes of a tight game, he has gone full offense/full defense. But against the Thunder, I expect to see some JJ on court, just like last season with the triumvirate of Prince/Pondexter/Allen defending him. Durant is a player that you have to give different looks and styles against.

 

How much JJ plays will depend upon how disciplined he is in that defense however. If he is getting too reckless, or too physical, the chain will be short. The biggest key in defending Durant is ball denial. You want to make it hard for Westbrook to get him the ball. Rusty will defer to KD if its an easy pass to get the ball to him, but if he has to work to make that pass, it ain't coming. He goes into Hero Mode, and that is what we want. The best defender in the game for KD is Westbrook in Hero Mode.

 

Tony is effective against KD because he denies the ball and then is physical without using his hands (behind the back trick). The more Johnson can emulate that style, the more court time in the first forty minutes of the game he will see.

Prince was a defensive wing but he's not one anymore, stats and the eye test both agree

Everybody will get abused by Durant, only Durant will shoot over TA time after time while with Davis he'll try to dribble around which makes him more tired by 4th and gives TA or Conley a chance to double-team him and steal the ball.

"THAT" could've cost Grizz heavily by sending them to SAS and eliminating them in the first round. Early season mistakes can be forgiven but some mistakes are life and death, like the mistakes Suns made.
