Tayshaun Prince dunks on pretty much half the Thunder (VIDEO)

May 16, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

Tayshaun Prince was channeling his 2004 self all of a sudden on Thursday night for a play (actually, for a lot of this series), running baseline-to-baseline on this play, getting out on the fast break and just throwing it down over Reggie Jackson and Serge Ibaka and it felt like half the Thunder. That is aggressive. That is fearless.

Prince and the Grizzlies are just making plays — and that has them in the Western Conference finals, where they may well be favorites against San Antonio (or Golden State).

        Ask Stephen Jackson about Serg Abaka. He’ll tell you.

    That’s my dogg! Dominguez Dons up in this beech! C’mon Tay’, let’s get that 2nd ring! Chandler and the Knicks aren’t coming back from that 1-3 deficit, I got no more dogs left in the race BUT Tayshaun and the Grizz. Get ’em!

    Gasol blocked Perkins’ shot to start the break. Then Prince dunked on Ibaka, Reggie Jackson and Sefolosha.

    Kind of a shame that Perkins couldn’t hustle back on defense on the play – he could have gotten posterized again.

    Kurt, it’s time to write that article about Miami’s title hopes being threatened by the Westbrook injury. Miami almost certainly would have beaten OKC in a rematch, but now I believe the Grizzlies or Spurs have a legitimate shot at the title. They match up poorly with a healthy Thunder team but much better against the Heat. Should be an interesting Finals.

    Yeah Tay!

    Nice to see Tay back deep in the playoffs for the first time since before Dumars shook up the Pistons and got rid of Billups.

    Sometimes I wonder to myself what could have been for that team if they had picked D-Wade over Darko, or Bosh over Darko…or most players in the 2003 draft over Darko. Ahh…memories.
