Lakers lost another road game last night to the Bulls. They have now lost 9 out of their last 11 games.

 

The Lakers will come in to Memphis desperate and hungry for a win. Some people probably think the Lakers losing 9 of their last 11 games is good and should bode well for the Grizz.

 

I'm not one of them. With a line up of Kobe, Howard, P. Gasol, Metta World Peace, and Steve Nash the Lakers are to talented to keep losing games. IMO, this is a loss for the Grizz. If you got money bet on it. You can book this one as another Grizz loss. Grizz are starting to play like most early prognosticators thought they would in a 82 game season. November was fools gold. Grizz did not improve their roster during off season. They can't shoot, their coach is caught in a time warp or his pants are to tight.

 

 

The Grizz players say the same thing after every loss..."We didn't execute, we didn't play with energy, we are not moving the ball side to side enough, we're playing selfish". Yada, yada, yada.

 

WHY NOT?? Are you and your coach dummies? Never mind; that's too obvious to any one who has been watching the games lately.

 

Something needs to change. Grizz have been fighting to play .500 ball since December.

 

Grizz are one major player injury from going in the tank. They have absolutely no depth.

 

Lakers 98 Grizz 91

Lakers lost another road game last night to the Bulls. They have now lost 9 out of their last 11 games.

 

The Lakers will come in to Memphis desperate and hungry for a win. Some people probably think the Lakers losing 9 of their last 11 games is good and should bode well for the Grizz.

 

I'm not one of them. With a line up of Kobe, Howard, P. Gasol, Metta World Peace, and Steve Nash the Lakers are to talented to keep losing games. IMO, this is a loss for the Grizz. If you got money bet on it. You can book this one as another Grizz loss. Grizz are starting to play like most early prognosticators thought they would in a 82 game season. November was fools gold. Grizz did not improve their roster during off season. They can't shoot, their coach is caught in a time warp or his pants are to tight.

 

 

The Grizz players say the same thing after every loss..."We didn't execute, we didn't play with energy, we are not moving the ball side to side enough, we're playing selfish". Yada, yada, yada.

 

WHY NOT?? Are you and your coach dummies? Never mind; that's too obvious to any one who has been watching the games lately.

 

Something needs to change. Grizz have been fighting to play .500 ball since December.

 

Grizz are one major player injury from going in the tank. They have absolutely no depth.

 

Lakers 98 Grizz 91

 

I won 80 dollars on the lakers losing tonight :P

 

 

I think I'll bet against them again Wednesday!!

 

Grizz win by 10 or more, no room for fakers in Memphis

. Grizz have been fighting to play .500 ball since December.

 

Incorrect. Since the first ten games, the Grizzlies have been playing 0.600 basketball. People are over emphasizing the losses and under appreciating the wins. 0.600 basketball will get you 49 wins over a regular season.

Because we lose to the teams that matter and win against the teams that don't.

Should pick Lakers for this game. Die-hard Grizzlies fan for years but this is what is going to happen. Having just Bayless, Arthur, Haddadi, Wroten from the bench for this game will be the reason that we'll lose.

Spurs, Warriors, Bulls, Celtics, Nuggets, Bucks. All wins in December and January against teams that would be in the playoffs. How do those not matter?

I'll only give you the Warriors. The others are in the East so they don't count. And we are losing the season series to DEN and SAS

Nit picking by Wells as usual. So what if they are still playing a "little bit" above 0.500 basketball. They still are playing mediocre basketball. We are not through with January yet. Playing the Lakers, Nets, Philly on a back to back at Philly, OKC, and an improving NOLA team they may or may not be playing "0.600 basketball" by Feb

 

Your life on this board seems to evolve about "your perception" of correcting somebody.

Well this should be a close low scoring game my thoughts are

 

LA 90 GRIZZ 86

 

Yeah. That's not to different from my score. But this a loss. Lakers are just better with their starting five. And now we have even less of a bench. Lakers win. Put your money down; particularly since the Grizz will probably be at least 5 point favorites.

 

Things will probably get better for the Grizz in February since the schedule is more favorable for them. Oh well; still hanging in as a Grizz fan. Just being realistic. Grizz are to inconsistent to be a serious contender for no more than one round and out in the play-offs

If you're going to exaggerate on the facts, someone will always call you on it. That's why I put the facts out. That you don't like the facts doesn't keep them from being true. While I have been disappointed by some of the losses, I still recognize that the team is winning more games than it ever has in the history of the organization. I'm not going to denigrate that achievement in a random post just because I think the Grizzlies can play better. And I will correct anyone that does denigrate that achievement. It has nothing to do with my "perception", it has everything with someone failing to actually look at the facts.

Well here are the facts: Grizz 12 and 2 in November; 7 and 7 in December, and 7 and 5 in January. Notice the trend? Maybe you are just blinded by the light and impervious to a 24 hour day. Grizz are hanging in, but the rope is getting thinner.

The 7-5 Jan record is not as bad as it could have been but should at least be 8-4 as we should have beaten IND on MLK day. But the Jan schedule is tough with 9 road games. We have 2 more road games to go at PHI and at OKC.

 

The home losses are killing our record. Losing to POR and PHI and IND just should not happen to a team who can beat SAS at FEF.

So let me get this straight: we are going to have to play this game with only 9 players in uniform (including HH and Wroten)?

I really hate to say or think this, but sooner or later, the stars are going to align like they did for us in SAC when we blitzed the Kings 113-81 and the Lakers are going to have a game where the 3 pointers go in. Their opponent's shots dont fall (that is a Grizzlies specialty--not making any shots) and they put together a win on the road.

 

They have lost 6 in a row on the road. They still have Kobe Bryant along with MWP, Howard along with Pau off the bench. This game scares the *&^* out of me because we simply cant score. Everyone says the Lakers' D is horrible and it is, but with our inept offense, it doesnt take a great defensive performance to whip us.

 

We trade away the only threat we have from the 3pt line except for Mike sometimes. I cant count on Chris Johnson to light it up from 3 pt land in his first game and against the Lakers.

 

So Lionel should be so happy tomorrow night. We can go to the paint literally EVERY possession because we have no one who can shoot anymore.

 

It really would be embarrassing to be the team the Lakers get well against after they lost to TOR and CHI before us on the road. I really hope we can get this game over with and get a win.

Yep. You got it straight. How do you now feel about the Grizz/Laker game?

I think our guys are going to be pretty dang tired afterwards. I just can't see the starters playing less than 40 minutes each. But LAL sucks so badly that I still think we'll win fairly easily.

where will Leuer be? What about Chris Johnson? They cant get on planes and be here to take physicals like tonight? Oh well, okay. This game is getting scarier and scarier.

 

it would be about like the Grizzlies to lose to the most pathetic Laker team in years at FEF.

That's right. Grizz lose this one. Maybe bigger than my original prediction. Lakers are due and they just have more talent. Forget their record to date. They need a win a lot more than the Grizz.
