Full court press on Reggie Jackson. If they put Fischer in, Conley to the hoop all day. This is just going to be a tough series for the thunder, no doubt.

Not sure how they are going to handle the ball pressure memphis brings.

How many techs did Z-Bo get in that Clippers series? He needs to chill with the techs or he could get suspended for a game if Memphis has a deeper playoff run

Can he pay to stay on the court?

Early game time is what scares me. Remember, Zach needs a huge lunch to have a great game. He gotta eat at like 10 AM!

Both of our game 7's were on ABC. I think it's a league rule or something that they always get game 7.

The big difference though is, we're a better team this time around and OKC is worse. ;)

Still gotta come ready to battle though.

So torn. Super happy there is another game on so quick but wish out guys had a bit more rest. Oh well. Hope they use today wisely and didnt party too hard last night. Still have to stay focused and win at least one of these two over there. Grizz in 5

2 keys ZBO vs Collinson(we all know what happen last time)on offense and Tony Allen vs Martin on defense.

Let KD go for 40 like CP3 and shut down he rest.Use Q ,TA,DA and prince on him to tired him out by the 4th.

Reggie Jackson can't be under-estimated. While he's certainly no Westbrook, he still does have the ability to catch fire at times.

Also, expect KD to take a very large number of field goals. We're gonna need Pondexter and Tayshaun to shut him down. Maybe even the Grindfather himself even though I'm expecting to see him covering K-Mart the majority of the time.

Collison also scares me a lot...he fits in with our grit 'n grind style of play and doesn't seem to be scared of Z-Bo. He is very likely to foul out if Z-Bo starts schooling him, so let's hope we see the same Zachary we've been seeing lately.

...Grizzlies in 6.

GO GRIZZ!
