I've been saying it for weeks: this game WILL decide homecourt advantage. Biggest game of the season? I vote yes.

Def game of the year. We are banged up. Pull out the duct tape and let's grind this one out. I can't wait to see it live. It's going to be sold out and INSANE inside our Forum. Win!!!

It's pretty clear to me that LAC being ahead of us or not comes to today... Let's do everything we can! No ref BS tonight. (Maybe they gave us the Rockets game to BS this game...)

 

TA must to be focus on not turning the ball over... And it would be nice from Mike to hit those open 3's. ZBo needs a big game too.

I'm just hoping the guys come out ready to play tonight and arent to drained after last nights win in Houston. I know they wanted to get that 7(6?) year loosing streak down there off their backs. This game is defintely huge tonight, although tbh, homecourt or not, I don't particularly fear the Clips in a playoff series. But I'd still like to see GnG come out and handle its business

This game will be interesting too watch. Both teams battled it out for wins last night on a B2B to come into the FDXForum to face again. This should be a fun one to watch I'm sure they're both tired. GO GRIZZ!!

Hello friends. I agree, easily the most important game of the year so far for both teams. Grizzlies win makes it impossible for the Clippers to get HCA unless you guys lose your remaining 2 games (not happening). If the Clippers win though they have 2 easy games to close out and will have HCA at least if they win out. If Denver loses just once and the Clips or Grizzlies win out, they have the 3/4 seeds. In other words.. its a crazy dogfight but most likely this is a first round preview. I love the new rivalry we have so wouldn't have it any other way. I think another 6-7 game series of blood and guts again is on the table.

As much as I want to play the Clippers again in the first round for payback, I am dying for that 3 seed playing GSW and then SAS 2nd round. That way hopefully Den or LAC can knock out OKC in 2nd round and we will not have to go through them, or if we do go through them, it will be 3rd round and not 2nd.. I think SAS is banged up again this year like the 2011 playoffs so we should handle them if so.. We need to win out and Den needs to lose a game, PERIOD.. If not, let the blood battle begin.. Just hope Chris Paul tries to win this year without the antics.. We would respect him much more... Highly unlikely tho..

The other games tonite are very important in terms of the Grizz getting 3rd seed;

 

Milwaukee owns the tiebreaker over Boston. If they win tonite vs Charlotte and Boston loses to Orlando thats more than enough a reason to put an effort in vs Denver on monday. Nuggets will be on a b2b and the Mavs will be on a b2b when Memphis plays them.

 

One game at a time tho. This is the first game in like a month I've watched a game since they haven't been on tv at all, I can't watch them online cuz my internet can't handle it loll. But I will be watchin every minute of this one!

I wouldn't bet on that last game in Sac town being an easy one. It's the second game of a back to back for you and might be the last NBA game played in Sac town. The Kings will be up for this game. If the clips win that game, it won't be by much.

Fellow Grizz fans, we must remember that the game we won in LA was against the Clippers minus Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe. Now Caron Butler doesnt scare me--not saying he isnt a good player-- but we didnt have to face EBledsoe.

 

EBledsoe is a freak of nature at times. He comes in with the 2nd unit and plays with CP3 on the floor some as well. I think he is something like all of 6 ft tall and he is a demon under the boards and I am literally afraid for Keyon Dooling if he has to face Bledsoe's top notch man to man defense.

 

Last year in the playoffs, Bledsoe singlehandedly was a wrecking crew for OJ Mayo when OJ was playing PG and giving Mike some rest. He hounded and hounded and hounded OJ rendering OJ useless and forcing turnovers and making us not be able to actually start our offense until 11-12 secs left on the shot clock.

 

JBay and Mike are going to have to score because you know Jamal Crawford and CP and Bledsoe are going to score.

 

Look for Vinny to put once again put a young, long, athletic defender on Zach who will pound, deny, beat up Zbo whenever possible. These type of guys are kryptonite for Zach these days.

 

Our main hope is that Marc exploits his matchup. Marc will have to be aggressive and we will need 18-25 pts from him to win. He has to either score or find the open cutter or shooter. If Marc has a bad game, it may not be pretty. The last time these guys visited FEF, they wiped the floor with us, called the dogs off late in the game and still won by almost 30.

 

Just being realistic here. Lets face it, they are the more talented team by far, but we have to play together and be focused and play defense. Defense may not win the game for us, we will have to score to do that, but good defense always gives you a chance.

 

By the way---"Austin Daye, paging Austin Daye---please bring your 'almost 50% from the 3pt line shot' to the game tonight and be prepared to use it repeatedly." It would seem to me that we will need to drain at least a few 3 pointers to negate the multitude of 3s that they will undoubtedly hit tonight.

On the 3PT subject our 3PT shooting was horrible last night in HOU and that wasn't a great defensive team at all. And on especially a back to back I'm not saying that we won't make any 3s tonight but expecting another 3PT outing from us ( 8 - 19 ).

Wasup there. I wouldnt mind getting revenge on Clippers in the playoffs. For some reason, I just dont fear Clippers like I did early in the year. They toughness is not there anymore. Your bench is deeper for backcourts, but the players yall sent out last year were more of a problem. We dont have ballstoppers anymore. Even ZBO doesnt stop ball movement these past few weeks. Im looking forward to CP3 vs MC11. Who ever controls the pace better wins.
