Finally, we've reached Final Four time in the 2011 NBA Playoffs.

On Sunday, the Thunder rode Kevin Durant's brilliant 39-point performance to a Game 7 win against the pesky Grizzlies to make their first Western Conference Finals since the move to Oklahoma City.

In the nightcap, the Eastern Conference Finals tipped between the Bulls and the Heat, and after a defensive first half, Chicago's effort on the offensive glass and off the bench led them to a blowout victory of LeBron James and Miami.

Rose scored 28 points with six assists and got the ball to secondary scorers, who came up huge for the Bulls in their dominating second half.

Some were skeptical of the Thunder after losing Game 6, especially because Durant scored only 11 points on 3-for-14 shooting in defeat.

Both young stars demonstrated they have the ability and poise to show up for their teams that rely on them in the biggest games.
