Second Round Matchup Set: OKC vs. Memphis

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies are ready to rumble again.

Two years after slugging it out in a Western Conference semifinal series that went the full seven games, the two rough-and-tumble rivals will square off again starting in Game 1 in Oklahoma City on Sunday.

The Thunder prevailed against Memphis in the last playoff series, which featured a triple-overtime game and another with just one overtime. There's been no love lost since then between the teams, who combined for nine technical fouls in three meetings this season.

Grizzlies star Zach Randolph and Oklahoma City enforcer Kendrick Perkins were ejected in one of the games, with a confrontation that continued off the court and into the hallway outside both teams' locker rooms.

With even more on the line, the tension should only increase.

The schedule for the first three games between the Grizzlies and Thunder has been released:

Game 1 - Sunday, 12pm in Oklahoma City (ABC)

Game 2 - Tuesday, 8:30pm in Oklahoma City (TNT)

Game 3 - Saturday, 4pm in Memphis (ESPN)
