Hopefully this team will be a little more excited to play the Heat than they were the Spurs.

Unfortunately.

 

While a win is needed, some fire, life, and enthusiasm would be nice.

Right now, the Grizz are playing like a team that doesn't deserve to make Western Conference playoffs.

 

Imo how they play, win or lose, against Miami will be the real barometer as to whether they will make it to the playoffs; (And even then(if they do make them)they will be no better than an 8th seed).

 

Having said that, I still would like for them to qualify for the playoffs. GO GRIZZ!

The truth is Phoenix and Dallas is doing what they have to do to get in the playoffs. They are winning against the teams like OKC, Portland, LAC, etc...

 

Phoenix continues to beat the elite teams. You don't have to give them credit; but I do. Particularly, Phoenix. They keep winning despite the tough road schedule they have had and still have ahead of them.

 

While the Grizz are struggling to beat minus .500% teams. I still haven't given up. It's not over yet; but it looks like the Grizz will have to beat both Phoenix and Dallas now to get in the playoffs.

They're hungry after being shut out of the playoffs. The Phoenix model gives me some optimism for the Grizz. I would definitely want the Grizz to get younger and more athletic.

It doesn't matter anymore. The Grizzlies are done for the year.
Maybe. As close as they are (currently 9th), the glaring point is the division record of 3-12. Turrible.

If they lose this game, the season will be over I fear.

 

So they won't play the last four games?

 

That's a defeatist attitude. Don't give in to your fears. Fight to the end and never give up.

 

Phoenix still has to play @ New Orleans, @ San Antonio, @ Dallas and Memphis. They aren't assured anything yet if the Grizzlies continue to fight.

If they lose this game, the season will be over I fear.

 

 

 

Fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate; hate leads to the dark side. I sense much fear on this board ~ YODA ~

 

 

Unfortunately, I feel this fear as well. But I will not give up on the Grizz making the playoffs until they are officially eliminated.

 

No one thought a Young Hockey team made up of College kids could beat the Professional Russian Hockey team. But they did. I realize comparing that to the Grizz making the playoffs is comparing apples to oranges.

 

Fans certainly have the right to choose settling for the lottery at this point(the 14th draft pick certainly SHOULD be better than the 21st) rather than trying to make the playoffs where the Grizz chances of getting swept by SAS are very high; still I prefer the Grizz to give their best shot they have at making it to the playoffs. But that just me.

 

You play it to the end. If not; why play the game?

The Grizzlies have been swept 4 times in franchise history. If the Grizzlies make the playoffs and get swept it won't be the 3rd time this has happened.

Phoenix just has to win 3 of those games I say they beat NO, San Antonio rest its starters and they beat the Spurs, then all they have to do is beat Dallas.

 

Where we have to beat Miami, Phx, and Dallas just to have a chance at a tie with Phx. Phx is going to play harder for the Playoffs than the Grizz are and they will be rewarded the 8th seed.

So you believe the glass is half empty. I believe it is half full. All the Grizzlies need to do is win their games and they are in the playoffs. They are one loss behind Phoenix, have the tie-breaker and play them again. To make the playoffs the Grizzlies need to win their last 5 games. In fact if they win them all and Dallas loses to either Phoenix or San Antonio then the Grizzlies would finish in 7th place and face the Thunder instead of the Spurs.

 

That is a fact.

yea but Phx is the team proving they can win the games needed to get in the Grizz haven't proved that. Thankfully for the Grizz they have Philly and LA which should be 2 guaranteed wins, but that's not a given.

When i played one of the many sports i participated in (not pro level of course), when i had a little fear, it makes you play with more of an edge and more focused than ever which often led to better results. I know OUR team has the ability to win the last 5 games, even if my gut is saying it will be tough. It's not over till it's over.

 

IF there was ever a time to "grizz up", this would be that time.

Never mind the analysis. The Griz will beat Miami just to make sure we stay totally confused about whether or not this team is any good.

Then we'll get blown out by the Lakers.
