Disappointed to be missing this game.

 

Hope there is a strong turnout at the FEF. Unfortunately, in looking at all the tickets available on various websites, the number of empty seats will exceed the significance of the game.

My expectations are pretty tempered while not having Conley. I could see this as a W, but in the event of a loss all is not lost. Just have to stay relatively close until the all-star break, then regroup. Just want to see good effort and Marc establishing himself.

We were more than 3 games from the 8th spot few weeks ago. It's not the end of the world if we go back to 1 and 1/2.

 

That said, I'm itching to take this opportunity to stomp on their necks and convince them that tanking is the way to go for the rest of the season.

Dallas won last night while we lost. IF we lose this game we will be 2 games behind Dallas. Must win IMO

Dallas won last night while we lost. IF we lose this game we will be 2 games behind Dallas. Must win IMO

Correct. I forgot Dallas played yesterday. However the point is the same, we're are two starters down and another is not 100%, so if we win great, but if not, it's not a tragedy. We'll catch them later.

With tie breaking playoff implications at stake you don't think it's a must win?

 

It would be nice to win. There are 37 games left. We are playing with barely 1 point guard against a current Western Conference playoff team. If this was in the last couple weeks of the season, of course it would be. Right now though I expect us to go on a run after the All-star break

Looking at the rosters, I only see one clear advantage for our starters and that's at the C position. Everywhere else, I see a slight advantage for DAL or a push (Dirk/ZBo maybe a push). Our bench is better though. Without Conley, this will be a tough game to pull out. Hopefully, home court means something this time, though most of the year it hasn't...

I just want 3-2 from here on out

 

It'll be tough

 

Dallas of course

Calathes up against Kyrie Irving and John Wall

 

Also, we already own the tiebreaker vs. Phoenix. If they ever slow down that is.

I definitely agree...every game from here on are must win games. We need to win as much as we can and make some distance from the other teams. Just think of how competitive the west is, so you need to know each game is very important and any slight slip up can coz us a spot!

The Grizzlies need to win every possible home game from here on out. 13 losses is disgraceful already but with the injuries and coaching change there is no use complaining. However, Memphis should beat Dallas tonight.

 

The funny thing is this is more important for the Mavericks than the Grizzlies. If Dallas loses they miss out on a chance to close out the tie-breaker against the Grizzlies, fall a game behind in the loss column to the Grizzlies and drop 3 games behind the Grizzlies in their last 10 games. The playoffs will look much bleaker for Dallas if they lose than Memphis.
