Can Thunder Defense Stop Mike Conley?

While the Thunder’s foul-plagued frontcourt did what it could to contain the formidable inside tandem of 7-foot-1, 265-pound Marc Gasol and 6-foot-9, 260-pound(ish) Zach Randolph, it was the 6-foot-1, 185-pound, left-handed (Mike) Conley who essentially did as he pleased in the final period of Game 2.
For this reason, look for 6-foot-7 defensive specialist Thabo Sefolosha to take a crack at defending Conley in Game 3, which will tip off at 4 p.m. Saturday at FedExForum in Memphis.
Sefolosha can’t defend Conley alone, however, and will require some help from bigger Thunder teammates.
