Oklahoma City is very reliant on Westbrook, which is understandable, but the Grizzlies can key in on his supporting cast while letting him get his numbers. Westbrook can’t outscore the Grizzlies on his own and that is what we saw in the first meeting this season, as the Thunder weren’t able to support Westbrook. OKC’s defense is not very good, which will allow Memphis to put up a bigger scoring total than usual and cover tonight.
