Will Bynum and Rodney Stuckey didnt play in the first meeting. But we should be able to take care of business at home.

Every next game is bigger than the last.

I wish Houston and Dallas lose today.

Grizzlies must aspire for 4th spot in the playoffs.

No such thing in the NBA, IMO.

The Pistons have been playing good ball lately, I expect them to come ready to play...especially after having the night off.

Gotta keep the streak alive.....They gotta play with good intensity and forget that the Pistons aren't that great of a team this year b/c anyone can beat anyone, anytime.

I like your predicition. Has anything been said about Zach practicing full contact?? 3 full days off after this game. Maybe if Zbo could get a couple live practices in before GSW and then play 8-10 mins Wed nite, 8-10 mins in PHO, and 8-10 mins in Denver. Then come home and be ready for The Lakers on Mar 13. Maybe it could go something like that.

Detroit hasn't played in March so they should be extremely well rested and they won their last game so they will be wanting to start a winning streak. This will be the Grizzlies 3rd game in four days after playing last night in Toronto.

This is anything but an easy win.

Detroit is lacking on the talent front ..and I noticed a lot of frustration with play calls from their coach last game...if we come out focused and slow down Knight, BG, and STUCKEY...they can't beat us..

They aren't much worst than us. Greg Monroe (16.8 ppg, 10.1 rpg) is putting up better numbers than Gasol and they also have Maxiell, Villanueva, Jerebko and Ben Wallace. That's not drastically worst than Gasol/Speights/Cunningham.

Monroe will be a problem. He is probably the most skilled center in the east. I think Prince is no where as good as he use to be defensively. I haven't seen Knight play the whole year, only looked at his box scores and he seem to be having a decent rookie year. Lets hope Ben Gordon doesn't light the area up. Speights needs to hold on to his rebounds because Maxiell will be on the boards. We are easily more talented than they are but thats how it was last night. So we needed effin Rudy Gay man to hush the crowd up.

I agree that Monroe is a good ballplayer and he has a slight edge in pts. and rebs. but Marc nearly matches that and also beats him in assists and blocks. Marc also does it against tougher competition in the WC IMO.
