The Thunder and the Grizzlies were two very evenly matched teams over the course of the first two games of this series, but the real advantage is going to come at this point via coaching. Head Coach Scott Brooks has done a great job leading this team, but he isn’t adjusting nearly as well to the loss of G Russell Westbrook as Head Coach Lionel Hollins did in the middle of this season when his team traded F Rudy Gay. It’s amazing to think that the Grizzlies are at this point, and many think that they are going to win this series. Count us amongst those at this point. The defensive intensity only gets tougher to deal with when the Grizzlies are playing in Memphis. Don’t believe us? Just ask the Los Angeles Clippers, who were held to 82 and 83 points in their first two games here at the FedEx Forum in the postseason. Oklahoma City won’t be held down quite that low, but it’ll be low enough. Memphis will find its way into the mid-90s offensively, and if it does that behind another good shooting game for G Mike Conley Jr., it should walk away with another solid victory to take the 2-1 series lead into next week’s Game 4.
