This may be more intersting than b4. Bobcats acquired Raja Bell, Sean Singletary and Boris Diaw from the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday in exchange for Jason Richardson, Jared Dudley. We should easily beat the Bobcats because they will be less than 5 days practicing as a team.

Since I am writing this before we play Hornets, I am feeling that we could still working on now a 5 game win streak or on the front end of starting a two 4 game winning streaks lasting until Cleveland.

The starting crew should 2 whoever is quickest and sharpest in morning practice. Raja is in for a long night.

Rudy is going to use Juwan. Darko and/or Marc will smash the boards and stack a dozen or so blocks.

We should get 100+ pts, play 48 mins of NBA bBall, and Build towards playoffs.

Looking forward to us picking up our 10th win on Friday night. I'm not upset with the guys at all for the game against the Hornets. Everyone played hard, gave maximum effort and had a shot at winning the game in the end..that is all you can ask for. In order to reach my prediction before the season of 35 wins the guys would have to go 26-31 from here on out. If we continue to play as we have lately I feel that we can accomplish that. GO GRIZZ!!!!!!!!!!

I think I can safely call this winnable even before the marked improvement of the last week or so.

We need this win if we're going to keep our momentum going. I think we'll probably lose to the Lakers, so this is one we need.
If we beat the teams we're supposed to beat (OKC, Charlotte, Indiana, Minnesota) and get a couple against teams we shouldn't (Lakers, Celtics, Spurs), then I think this will be a really successful season.
Then, the next year, we'll beat everyone!

Statement game, here. If we come out and lose a close one, it's still a good sign. If we win a close one, it's an even better sign.

If we blow them out, this team may be starting to Jelly....(that better, Zack?)

Let's go out and get this one in easily fashion. I was just wondering..I think I would have Gerald Wallace at the SF to guard Rudy and Boris at the PF.

I agree with your assessment on the P/F and S/F match ups. We may even see Bell on Rudy at times instead of on Mayo.

This game, as all games actually, should not be taken lightly. The Bobcats have improved their defence this year. No surprise with Larry Brown taking over as coach.

The thing is, with the acquisition of Bell, and the Signing of old man Juwan Howard while Boris Diaw will take some of the heat of Okafor on the offence. They have become even a better defencive team.

I look for this to be a tough game anyway you look at it. We will definitely need to have good coaching, with the players playing as much mistake free basketball as possible.

Go get 'em, Griz.

This is going to be a tough matchup, IMO.

Raja on Mayo. Wallace on Rudy. It's going to be tough.

Gameplan? Run them to death. Get up and down the floor. Wear Raja down and make him chase Mayo all over the place. Points in transition are going to be crucial to winning this game. We are going to have to get out on the break and get some transition points. It's going to take an efficient effort from both Lowry and Conley in this game. If we do that and Darko/Marc hold it down under the basket, we will notch win #10.

Go Grizzlies!

tough matchup on paper. but luckily the bobcats are playing like total garbage and diaw / bell are completely useless to them so far. well ok they did ok against Chicago... but mostly just got lucky. Augustine is a joke and we have more than enough resources to hold him under 10 points.

We should have a 20 pt lead by half

I don't think I will ever understand statements like this. It's not like we have a powerhouse. We are on the verge of being an up and coming team. We still haven't proven anything, and our latest winning streak could be viewed as "luck" as much as it could be anything else by the other teams in the league. When you say things like we "should have a 20 pt lead by half" then that translates as we should be disappointed if we don't blow them out. Heck, at this point I am thankful for any win and well fought loss.

Not trying to be a jerk. Seriously. I respect a lot of the posts I've seen from you. I guess I'm just looking to understand.

The game is played to win and destroy the opponent. LUCK does not give you a 4 game win streak.

I would be super pumped for a 2 point win. But I look into the game with my crystal ball seeing total annihilation.

Maybe "luck" was not the right word. But we have FAR from proved that a 4 game winning streak is our norm. Especially with 2 being against an injury depleted Rockets team and OKC. Yes, both games we should have won. But haven't proven we will win consistently as evidenced by the first loss to OKC.

Crystal Balls are nice and all but a pain to keep clean. I usually just rely on my magic 8 ball.
