Thunder-Grizzlies: Game 7 predictions

From Staff Reports Published: May 14, 2011


Thunder 100, Grizzlies 97

A fascinating series comes to a fitting end. You want a hero? How about Serge Ibaka, who has been teetering on the edge of breakout and breakdown in this series.


Thunder 102, Grizzlies 94

The Thunder fought all year for home-court advantage. This is where it pays off — as long as Kevin Durant remembers to be aggressive and drive to the basket a few more times than he did Friday night.

It should be close. It should be competitive. It could be a classic. The Thunder wins this game behind its home crowd and its bench. Look for James Harden and Eric Maynor to chip in key contributions.

In the second-best game of the series (come on, Game 4 can't possibly be topped), the Thunder survives thanks to Kevin Durant returning to form. OKC's prayers finally are answered in a Sunday game.


Thunder 98, Grizzlies 92

I like the stat Darnell dug up. When Nick Collison plays 25 minutes or more in this series, the Thunder wins. When he plays less, Memphis wins. Scott Brooks waited too long to go with Collison in the fourth quarter Friday night. He won't make the same mistake again.
