The return of Darrell Arthur! Kosta Koufas goes up against his old team. Randy Foye returns and man do I dislike that guy.

 

This should be an interesting game to watch. I hope the fans turn out to cheer the team on to victory.

I am sorry for the Nuggets. The Grizzlies will come up very angry and hungry. This is a big win.

I really liked the combo of JB,MM,& JJ last night in the first half. I don't remember seeing it in the second half but it was fun to watch.

 

Man me too. Zach passed out of a double team and JB hit a three and made em pay. JJ stole the show in that second quarter

I will keep preaching that. The Zbo we need right now is a playmaker from the post. NOT the carry offense on back as strictly a scorer. What good is drawing double teams if you are going to just shoot into them anyway.

Find the cutters and find the guys spotted up behind the arc. That's the jolt our offense needs not more isolation postUps and midrange jumpers.

The Grizzlies looks energized on the last few games. I can tell they are on the comeback. Gasol is also coming back soon so, watch out for The Angry Bears!!! Go Grizzlies.

I don't have a good feeling about this one, the Nuggets seem like a team that will do us wrong. I'll be tuned in.

Andre Miller this season is shooting 50% from 3 this season (9-18). Way above his career averages.

 

why wont that guy just freakin retire---jeez, he kills us. You think he is old and slow and we might have an advantage when he is in, but he always just kills us. Normally its him backing down his defender and posting up and making the shot in the paint. I guess now he is a 3 pt sharp shooter. EVERYBODY in the West shoots 3s--EVERYBODY but us

NOLA spanked DEN pretty good last night. And as far as playing somebody on the 2nd night of a back to back, the Grizzlies have proven that it is of no advantage to them. MEM can lose to a team playing for the 2nd night in a row just as easily if not more easily than a rested team.

 

MEM has no clue how to step on an opponent and put them away. This season is full of games that MEM has led only to collapse and lose.

 

DEN will come out ready to play and determined not lose on back to back nights. They know MEM is down. This will be a hard game to win.

I will keep preaching that. The Zbo we need right now is a playmaker from the post. NOT the carry offense on back as strictly a scorer. What good is drawing double teams if you are going to just shoot into them anyway. Find the cutters and find the guys spotted up behind the arc. That's the jolt our offense needs not more isolation postUps and midrange jumpers.

 

I agree totally. Zach is extremely important to the team, but he doesnt have to just try to do it all himself. He can be a good passer out of the double team when the others move and get in position.

 

Tillery pointed out that with 10 min left in the HOU game, MEM led by 10. Of the next 10 MEM shots, Zach took only one. The team went away from at least going through him. They settled for jumpers, blew the lead and it was a dogfight until the end when HOU lived on the FT line.

 

I am not saying that Zach has to shoot everytime. In fact I think he shouldnt, but he needs to be part of the offense and be allowed to draw the double team. The guys had it going the right way in the 2nd quarter but went away from it in the 2nd half. Sure hope they will stay with it if things are working tonight against DEN.

I don't have a good feeling about this one, the Nuggets seem like a team that will do us wrong. I'll be tuned in.
something tells me we might see a nice helping of those elbow jumpers from DA tonight just to show the FO what they traded away.

 

Although, based on the records, DA ought to be thanking the FO for trading him to the Nuggets as they are ahead of MEM anyway.

The cutters and guys spotted up behind the arc have to take and make the shots, otherwise, you might as well shoot through the double teams. Don't get angry at Zach; get angry at the other people failing at their jobs.

I'm not angry at Zbo he usually is doing what coach asks. It just isn't his natural inclination to think about passing/playmaking. Same problem most volume scorers have and another reason we miss Gasol so much.

I would try to convince him that we need his passing just until Marc comes back. Maybe that would work cause he really looked good in the 2nd qtr. Wed. night.

I truly think Zach wants to win. I think the Black Hole stuff is in the past. The only reason he might seem selfish at times is that the coach wants him to take it to the hole. If there is an open player and Zach sees him, I think he will pass it to get the open shot.

 

My only problem with Zach sometimes is that he finds himself open from 20+ feet and he shoots it. Zach has a nice feathery set shot that from say 15 feet in is pretty nice. But when he gets out further, his shot flattens out and he misses horribly a lot. Same thing with TA. I have no problem with TA coming around a screen and taking a 10 foot jumper. But there is a reason he finds himself open behind the arc a lot. The other team is enticing him to shoot it because they know what we all know and what Pops knows and anybody else who plays the Grizzlies. TA shooting from behind the arc is EXACTLY what you want if you are the........defense. LOL.

 

But to sum up, I will buy what GTF is selling right now. In Marc's absence, the team needs to step up offensively and put more points on the board. The Grit and Grind swarming defense with rim protection like we saw last year and in the playoffs is on hiatus while Marc--the defensive QB--heals up.

 

If Joerger and the team could bottle what they were doing in the 2nd quarter against HOU and then take it out and do it again tonight and game after game, they will be able to hold their own til Marc gets back.

I agree with you completely. I think ZBo, like most offensive minded guys, thinks shoot first but when he looks around,(like thursday night, he can be great while Marc is out. It's like I tell my hockey guys, "That's OUR puck! If you don't have it- get it! then LOOK - if you have a shot, shoot it, if not - LOOK - if you have a pass - pass it if not - rag it(dribble).

That's the game in a nutshell.
