Probably a little bit of a stretch to call this a must win but it would hurt to go 1-3 on the road after our winning streak. 2-2 would be nice heading back to FEF. Let's go get this one boys.

This IS a must win against a bottom feeder. We should win this game. Of course shooting better than 35.7% would help.

Grizz will be playing a Phoenix team that has to play Portland at Portland tonight. So this will be another team having to play back to back games. Come on Grizz: take the Suns down.

Almost right. The team may be in tank mode but Steve Nash never will be.

I think that all of us here would have considered going 2-2 on this 4 game trip a success. It does sting that we lost a completely winnable game on national TV last night, but if we can take care of business in Phoenix, 2-2 will still happen and that is positive.

I, for one, think we have the talent and ability to win both the back to back home games against SAS and DEN. If we do that, we would be 13-8 and off on another road trip. Not bad really, not bad at all considering.

Got to finish up the trip strong tomorrow night and go 11-8. We are right there with everyone else. Clips have been playing all their games in Staples for the most part. They will start to lose. Utah will start to have to go on the road as well. Grizz just need to win their home games and beat the sub .500 teams on the road and steal one every now and then against a playoff team on the road and we will be just fine.

Ask me about Suns, they're here in Arizona and the new owner has totally ....d them up! They traded great shooters like Richardson and great rebounders like Shawn Marion away and kept Lopez, Childress and two old guards Nash(breaks under pressure+too short+passes more than he shoots) and Grant(inconsistent) & couple more rookies, Gortat is OK but he's like Mayo, he wastes too many opportunities by the time he scores.
I think it'll be a high-scoring game and Grizzlies will win 108-98.
The only time Grizz can compete against bigboys is when Zach returns or the owners spend the cash & buy a great shooting guard to help Conley. That's what Clips have done & they'll do great, possibly make 7th place in playoffs.

Hesam, owners should have spent on Stephen Jackson to play starting shooting guard.

You must be a big Stephen Jackson fan. You used to beg for us to get him.

Stephen Jackson is a fairly good shooter, resembles Rudy Gay, at 6'8" he can be an effective rebounder but he has 2 negatives, he's inconsistent and he has an attitude. I would still take him as even trade with Mayo. He seems to have yoyo games, 1 great 1 terrible!
