Let's make it 5, baby! Again, as long as we don't play down to the competition we take this one.

Grizzlies suck on the road so it'll be an interesting game. Monroe vs. Gasol is a great matchup

Monroe vs gasol is a great matchup for Marc to dominate..Monroe is nowhere near Marc's level besides being versatile.

I'm sure Florida fans have been waiting a long time to see Vernon Macklin and Marreese Speights square off! ^_^

Other must win game. Please use OJ over 28 min. and don't use Josh Davis at all. I would give a chance for Jeremy once again.

Start

Pargo
OJ
Q
Davis
Speights

And play them all 48 minutes... Mini training camp and gets Conley, Marc, and Rudy much deserved rest. :)

I'm kidding, btw

What NBA have you been watching?? Monroe has been a beast this year... It is a very good matchup and if Monroe plays well we might lose.

The sun, moon, and stars all must align for us to lose. 1) Monroe has to go beast which only depends on Marc Gasol getting in foul trouble somehow because that matchup Marc will own. 2) Ben Gordon and Brandon Knight have to shoot lights out. 3) Tayshaun Prince has to turn back the clock about 4 years to keep up with Rudy Gay somehow, or perhaps Jerebko / maxiell steps up and shuts Gay down --- 3 very unlikely events all have to happen in one night for them to win.

We just have to win this next 2 games.

If hollins keeps playing davis over DC and MS we might lose.

If Hollins continues to play our starters obscene minutes, we may risk a couple of key starters again. Rotatione amd OJ being wn offensive beast off the bench like he has will be key. We should win but don't count yhe pistons out.

This very thing could have been said before OKC played the Wiz the other night and LOSS. Confidence is one thing, but bashing the opposing team in the process is a recipe for a let down. Let's be humble guys ;)

Considering there's a back-to-back tomorrow, a blowout tonight will be interesting. ^_^

Guys, can we stop criticizing Hollins rotation patterns for ONE night? Whatever he's doing now is working and that's all that matters. Who cares if OJ doesn't play the entire game, or Davis gets a few extra minutes as long as we get the W?

Easy win here. Grizz by 20.

I hear ya, but I doubt our forum members bashing the opposing team has any effect on the game!

Let's keep it up Grizz!
