The Memphis Grizzlies open the NBA playoffs in Oklahoma City Saturday against the Thunder and the league's scoring leader Kevin Durant.

Durant is averaging 32 points per game and revenge may be on his mind after the Thunder was eliminated last season by Memphis in the playoffs.

When discussing Durant Thursday, veteran guard Mike Miller said, “You're not going to limit him. What you make him do is volume guy and you keep him off the line, then you have a chance.”

The Grizz and Thunder tip-off Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
