And here we are for the seventh Pick thread of the 2016-17 season.  This season is moving faster than I would have believed, in part because my professional life has kept me from paying as close attention as I would have normally liked.

 

Luckily, the Grizzlies' success is not dependent upon my attention, as the team is comfortably in the playoff race, grinding along winning about six out of every ten games. There are a lot of NBA pundits out there with some egg on their faces, as they predicted the Boys in Beale Street Blue to finish under 0.500.

 

I'm stealing some time at work to post this thread, so I'm going to give my full game breakdowns later when I'm off the clock. Pick 'Em game is March 15 in Chicago, and no, I'm not using the Ides of March as the theme here. Instead, I'm taking a positive view on the world, as March 15 also happens to be the birthday of will.i.am, and I've got a feeling that it's gonna be a good night!

 



3/03 @ Mavs - W.

3/04 @ Rockets - L.

3/06 v. Nets - W.

3/09 v. Clippers - L.

3/11 v. Hawks - W.

3/13 v. Bucks - W.

3/15 @ Bulls - W. Grizz score 102.

3/16 @ Hawks - L.

3/18 v. Spurs - W.

3/21 @ Pelicans - W.

3/23 @ Spurs - L.

 

That's 7-4, scoring 102 in the Pick 'Em. Hop on!

That's all the leeway I can give. I better be on the bottom of predictions or I'm going to start calling people anti-fans!  ;)

Take The opposite spectrum of chip as I do have feeling. 8-3. This is where our push starts. 1 game behind the Jazz and only 1/2 a game behind clippers after rockets finish of this slaughter of a game. So 8-3 103pts be Chicago

Any chance we can get a synopsis of everyone's picks? 

Anyone feeling very confident about their selections this morning?

Well three games in and we are already about to lose a competitor. Barring a remarkable 8-0 streak VikingWarrior will not be a winner. 

I'm starting to worry that we all were too optimistic this time.  :(

I don't know if we were too optimistic or it's just that the team is stuck in the middle of a transition. The Grizzlies have spent six seasons as defensive juggernauts, playing ground and pound. We now have a lot of personnel whose primary skills are on the offensive end, while the core still is at its best grinding games out. The team is betwixt and between two styles, and the chemistry has been effected.

You think that is why the team suddenly went from competing for the 4th spot to not being able to win a game?

I know this question was directed to Wells, but imo that's only part of the problem. There are many. IE: Present player apathy, a lack of leadership, a loss of confidence, Parson being a starter, ( or even playing at all at this juncture ), a rookie head coach, and the overall mediocre team talent.
