Participate in our Power Lunch chats Monday-Friday at 11 a.m. at NewsOK.com/sports On what the Thunder needs to do to win Game 3 in Memphis Play physical defense like the Thunder did in Game 2, and no way will the Grizzlies sweep. But let Gasol and Randolph have their way in two games, and Memphis will take a 3-1 lead. That's the key. Durant and Westbrook, we pretty much know what they will do. The only offensive wild card is Harden. But that defense could go either way. On Memphis' gameplan in Game 3 vs. the Thunder: I expect the Grizzlies to come out and pound the ball. The Thunder has to be ready. If Perk and Ibaka and Collison push back, then I think the advantage switches to OKC. Of course, you never know how the officiating will go. Thunder could find some foul trouble. But the Thunder excelled in Game 2 not just in spite of the foul trouble, but BECAUSE of the fouls. On the better NBA player - Serge Ibaka or Blake Griffin: Well, at the risk of alienating Ibaka fans, I'd have to say Blake. But I've got no complaints about Ibaka. Did you see what Bill Simmons said about Ibaka? Compared him to Bill Russell. On how his opinion of Memphis has changed since the playoffs started: They've showed me. I didn't like them for a variety of reasons. 1. Their organization stunk. I still think it's shaky. They've given way too much guaranteed money to risky players. 2. Their depth was shaky. But Tony Allen and now Shane Battier have changed that. 3. Their defense was nothing great. But that has changed. They really defend now. Since the Battier trade, I had to admit Memphis has turned a corner. On the Lakers being down 2-0 to Dallas: Dallas is the best road team in the NBA and maybe the worst home team, among the elite. Dallas-LA seems to me a series that is sort of irrelevant in terms of home court advantage. Which means the Lakers are in serious trouble, not because they lost at home, but because they lost anywhere. In a tossup series, if you go down 2-0, I don't care if it's all on neutral courts, you're in trouble. On the Thunder guarding Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki: Well, the Thunder will rotate guys all night on Dirk. Ibaka would start. Collison would relieve. Thabo will take a turn or two, for a change of pace. And then in the fourth quarter, in a tight game, the Thunder would switch over, wait for it, wait for it, Kevin Durant. We saw Durant do a whale of a job on Kobe in a couple of fourth quarters last April. I think it could be interesting.
