Projected starting lineups:

Oklahoma CityMemphis
PG: Chris PaulPG: Ja Morant
SG: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander SG: Dillon Brooks
SF: Lu DortSF: Kyle Anderson
PF: Danilo Gallinari PF: Jaren Jackson
C: Nerlens NoelC: Jonas Valanciunas

3 Big Things:

  • Playoff Push. The Memphis Grizzlies are fighting for the eighth and final playoff spot, so the Thunder will be playing a motivated team.
  • Solo Center. Before tip-off, Steven Adams was declared out, a residual effect of his scary fall against the Lakers. Mike Muscala remains in the concussion protocol. That leaves only Nerlens Noel as the only healthy center available today. Expect to see Darius Bazley get some run at the 5.
  • Win the Series.  The Thunder and Grizzlies split two games in December, OKC taking the first and Memphis getting some revenge just over a week later. So, the winner of today’s game will lay claim to the winner of the season series.
