Vote: Phoenix Suns vs. Memphis Grizzlies

The ultimate goal for each of the 16 teams in the NBA postseason is 16 wins a parade with a very shiny trophy. But the journey begins with a best-of-seven challenge in the first round.

We're asking SportsNation to break down each opening-round series.

No. 1 Phoenix vs. No. 8 Memphis: The Suns soared to the top of the NBA by playing high-flying basketball all season. But will Steve Nash's team get burned in the rough-and-tumble world of the postseason? The first test comes from Pau Gasol's rejuvenated Memphis Grizzlies.
