James Webster is urging his resurgent Hull KR side to burst Catalans bubble when they visit the KC Lightstream Stadium on Thursday night, live on Sky Sports 3 HD. Barrie v Terry Podcast Our pundits discuss Thursdays clash between Hull KR and Catalans The Dragons have climbed to fourth in the table on the back of a four-match winning run and, having shed their apparent fallibility on the road, will be aiming for a fourth successive away win.The Catalans best winning sequence in Super League was seven in 2008, when they also went on an eight-match unbeaten run which included three successive away triumphs followed by victory at Millennium Magic. The Robins, too, are on the up following the arrival of Webster, who enjoyed a win over Salford in his first home game and followed up agonising defeats over the Easter weekend with an impressive victory over Leeds at Headingley.I think wed seen signs of improvement in each game over the last month but the big question was whether we could do it over 80 minutes and we did that, said Webster.But we still need to improve to be a consistent team. Shaun Lunt says Hull KR must move on from their slow start to the Super League season Webster, Frances assistant coach who is keen to remain involved with Les Tricolores at the end of the year, is acutely aware of the danger caused by the Dragons, whose most recent recruit, Willie Mason, had a six-match stint at Hull KR in 2011.Hes a quality player, said Webster. Hes got heaps of experience and hes a big thing with power and a big offload, who understands whats needed to get the job done.Hes just added to what was already a good side. He is just one of many we need to take care of. No Campese for Hull KR Robins skipper out for up to eight weeks with hamstring injury Theyve shown all year theyre a big, strong, powerful side who can travel away from home now, probably due to the hundreds of Australians they have in their side who are not worried about travelling.Theres not a position in their squad you dont worry about. We need to be able to match their power. We need to play well to win. Hull KR registered a morale-boosting victory over Leeds last Friday Hull KRs former Wigan forward James Greenwood admits it is important for his side to build on their rare victory at Headingley.Everybody says Leeds are struggling but its always a tough place to go so to get such a convincing win was a massive confidence booster for us, he said.Were just hoping we can progress from that and kick on.A lot of people wrote us off at the start of the season and I think weve finally realised what potential we have in the camp.Catalans have had a few wins under their belt so theyre going to be full of confidence.Theyve one of the biggest packs in Super League so this is another big test for us, especially our middles. Catalans were 21-8 victors over Widnes in round nine Hull KR are without skipper Terry Campese after he was ruled out for up to eight weeks with a hamstring injury. John Boudebza and Thomas Minn are recalled to Websters 19-man squad with Jor Wardill dropping out.Catalans also make two changes to their squad, Krisnan Inu and Stan Robin replacing injured duo Todd Carney and Paul Aiton.Hull KR: Mitch Allgood, Maurice Blair, John Boudebza, Chris Clarkson, Ben Cockayne, Kieran Dixon, James Green, James Greenwood, Graeme Horne, George Lawler, Shaun Lunt, Matty Marsh, Thomas Minns, Kieran Moran, Robbie Mulhern, Ken Sio, Iain Thornley, Dane Tilse, Adam Walker.Catalans Dragons: Louis Anderson, Jason Baitieri, Thomas Bosc, Julian Bousquet, Jodie Broughton, Dave Taylor, Vincent Duport, Olivier Elima, Morgan Escaré, Tony Gigot, Krisnan Inu, Antoni Maria, Willie Mason, Greg Mounis, Richie Myler, Eloi Pelissier, Pat Richards, Stan Robin, Glenn Stewart.

Paul Goldschmidt Jersey .500 were once common achievements for the Dallas Mavericks. Now, both are season highs as Dallas slowly works its way back into playoff contention in the Western Conference.OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Memphis Grizzlies might have all summer to think their dismal effort Thursday night. The Grizzlies could have closed out the Thunder at home, but Oklahoma City jumped on them from the start and rolled to a 20-point victory. Now, Memphis must play Game 7 on the road Saturday without scoring leader Zach Randolph and possibly point guard Mike Conley. Randolph was suspended for punching Steven Adams in the jaw late in Game 6. The Grizzlies had no comment on the NBAs decision after landing in Oklahoma City, according to team spokesman Jason Wallace. Conley strained his right hamstring in the loss and is struggling to recover. Memphis backup point guard, Nick Calathes, is out for the series because of a drug suspension, meaning No. 3 point guard Beno Udrih will likely carry more responsibility against Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson, two of the quickest point guards in the NBA. Conley said Friday that he plans to play, but he expects to be sore. "Me being banged up, youre going to have to ask more out of different guys, see a lot of guys step up," he said. "Were still excited and confident going into tomorrows game, regardless of injuries and how last nights game went." Memphis coach Dave Joergers team has dealt with injuries and lineup changes all season. Tony Allen missed 27 games this season, Marc Gasol 23 and Conley nine. Kosta Koufos and Ed Davis will likely fill Randolphs minutes. "This is it," Joerger said. "Whatever you want to say about the season, its all come down to one game. Certainly, for us to have the best chance to win, we have to play better than we did last night." Even with the issues the Grizzlies face, nothing has been certain in this matchup. The home team has won just twice in a series that has featured four overtime games. Thunder star Kevin Durant said Game 7 is like playing in the NCAA tournament. "You dont have no other option but to win," he said. "You cant get the game back. Its Game 7. You have to be ready to go." The teams have met in the playoffs three of the past four years. Oklahoma City beat Memphis in seven games in the 2011 Western Conference semifinals. "I remember the feeling afterward, and I dont want to repeat that," Gasol said. If the Grizzliess cant control Westbrook, a repeat is possible.ddddddddddddWestbrook, who at times has played recklessly in the series, scored an efficient 25 points on Thursday and engineered an offence that shot 49 per cent. His willingness to set up his teammates helped Durant score 14 points in the first quarter. "He was really mindful of looking for guys and finding guys early, picking and choosing his spots well," Durant said. Durant bounced back from his recent struggles with 36 points and 10 rebounds in Game 6. He made 6 of 10 shots in the first quarter Thursday night to set the tone and went 11 for 23 from the field. "Kevin just came out with a different kind of assertiveness last game," Oklahoma City guard Caron Butler said. "He was just real precise and he was vocal." The Grizzlies said they cant allow Durant to get going like that again or their season might be over. "We have to be better at finding him," Allen said. "We understand what he wants to do. Weve just got to be the aggressors on the defensive end. We understand coming into this series, hes going to be an MVP-type player, and we just have to be ready." Thunder coach Scott Brooks, who rarely makes lineup changes, started Butler at shooting guard over Thabo Sefolosha in Game 6. Butler, a better offensive threat than Sefolosha, helped space the floor and opened lanes for Durant and Westbrook. Brooks said Butler will remain in the starting lineup for Saturdays game. Brooks also played Adams more than usual in Game 6, and he responded with five blocks in 21 minutes on Thursday. Brooks said Adams earned the increase in playing time with his hard work in practice and his improvement throughout the season. The game could come down to tempo. In Games 1 and 6, the two matchups with a quicker pace, the Thunder won by double digits. Memphis turned the other four games into slower-paced, grind-it-out overtime battles and won three of them. "It makes for great storylines, but it comes down to playing good basketball," Brooks said. "Executing on both ends, making shots along the way, just continuing to play together and understanding that theres going to be some runs by either team that you have to stay focused and stay together through, and just being committed to what we want to do each possession."
