Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Memphis Grizzlies Western Conference Semis Preview
The Oklahoma City Thunder have a tall task in front of them as they head into the Western Conference Semifinals against the Memphis Grizzlies. Down the services of Russell Westbrook, who is out for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury, the Thunder will need to find support for Kevin Durant on the offensive end to make up for Westbrook's production. Durant has been scoring and playing the role of a point forward, a role that he is unaccustomed to playing. One positive for the Thunder is that they do have home court advantage in this round.
