Rudy should be about a week away from coming back. We need him to get back and get gelled and also to lock in our playoff rotation..

let's see...two all-star forwards on the floor Wednesday. Wonder which forward will have the best game?

Z-bo and Marc will make him work on the defensive end and limit his offensive production. I betcha he misses alot of easy shots in this game from working so hard on the defensive end. We can run with them but they cant pound with us.

More scared of Amare than Melo in this game. I dont know who we can use to contain him.

I think we matchup well with the Knicks, especially without Billups. If our perimeter defense is what people make it to be, then we can force some TOs even before the ball reaches into the hands of Melo and Amare. Defensively, they can't stop us either.

Winnable game.

We're deadly inside FEF this year. That alone makes me confident.

I don't wanna get ahead of ourselves but as long as the Grizzlies play to their potential they should beat any team in the east not named the Celtics...maybe the Bulls....But the Grizzlies are playing like they are the one of the elite teams in the league. And like TA said tonight, the Grizzlies need these games a lot more than the other teams. They just gotta want it more.

If Billups is out, PLEASE watch Douglas. He's one of those quick scoring guards that can get it going if no one pays attentiont to him.

You definitely don't want him scoring no more than his average.

I think we will end up winning this game though. Limit their 3 point makes by closing out on Williams, Fields and Walker. Continue to force turnovers and we got the guys to defend Melo. Make Amare work on the defensive end and there ya go.

This is definitely a must-win game. They might have two superstars ready to play, but overall, this team is better on paper. And as a whole, the Grizz are bigger then the sum of their parts. We are definitely a more cohesive team. We might get crushed by the officiating, but no matter the cost, we need to win this. We need to win games against teams lesser than us.

Man, I'm excited for this one. My hometown eastern conference boys, vs. the Grizz. Finally I get to watch a game on TV instead of the computer, haha! I hope we kick the crap out of everyone's new favorite team.

The biggest thing here, is we can't let Amar'e get his jump shot going. If there's any team I've watched more than the Grizz this year, it's the Knicks... although admittedly I've been a bit turned off by them after the Melo trade and have only seen 2 games since. Anyway, they really seem to get rolling when Amar'e's raining from the iso-mid-range game. If we can keep that in check (maybe play a lot of DA on him), I like our chances. I'm not worried about Melo at all. TA and Shane should be able to get in his head early on. Offensively we just need to pound them. Marc. Zach. They have absolutely no answer for that. No defense inside. Zbo should go for 20-20 again. One other huge caveat I have about this game is to watch the freakin 3-line! We generally suck at closing out of 3 shooters, and the Knicks all love to camp out there.

Who are they going to have guard Marc? They seem a bit small at the C.
