I honestly believe Memphis has a very good chance, keep in mind my Rockets took them to 6 and 2 of those loses were by a combined 6 points. Rockets' keys to almost beating them: - play a unconventional line-up... sometimes had 2 point guards playing at the time and never played a power forward at the 4 spot, instead always had a small forward playing the 4...this will bring Ibaka out of the paint. Of course this will sacrifice rebounding but you'll just have to live with that. - Faceguard Durant 24/7, he doesn't have that "give me the f**king ball" mentality and numerous times Durant became idle on the court due to it. - Point guard penetration! Rockets live and die by the 3 and their PG's were VERY aggressive at penetrating and dishing out to their 3 point shooters. As good as Z-Bo is, Memphis might be better off not starting him and playing him at center when Gasol needs a breather. Perkins can't check Z-Bo at all so this will force Brooks to completely bench Perkins and play Ibaka as a stretch 5 which will open up the lanes for athletic Conley. Like I said, unconventional...and Scott Brooks is slow at making adjustments, so Lionel Hollins is going to have to outcoach him to give Memphis a chance.
