Vulnerable to an upset here.

A) Emotional loss to Lakers
B ) Small crowd for the game
C) Possibly trying to work ZBo into the rotation
D) Who knows what happens with the trade deadline.

However, the Grizzlies have been beating these type of teams all year. Keep it up.

I think this game is the return of Rudy and ZBO. I think the team will try to work him in before this road trip.

Unless Rudy's concussion is serious than we thought, I expect him to be ready after 5 full days of rest since the incident.

Even though the Tigers will be playing, it's Gospel Night. That usually draws a good crowd.

If we get screwed again, I might literally have a heart attack.

We can't keep a lead so blowouts are out of the question.

I was joking. But I do think the Griz need to go on a roll -- at least for my sake. I can't seem to get the bad taste from the other night out of my mouth, so to speak. I feel cheated and the NBA seems like a freaking joke. I think I might feel a little better if we go ahead and beat the crap out of the next few teams. If not, I might have heart attack too or at least a broken heart.

I was pulling for the Hornets so hard last night. They had a 17 pt lead and did exactly what we did but they did get 13 FT attempts. However they lived and died by jump shots at times and Chris Kamen made some absolutely stupid decisions at the end.

But the Lakers certainly seem blessed. They were down 3 pts to us, our best perimeter defender TA left Kobe who hit a 3 to tie it. The Lakers were down 3 to NOLA and Ayon stupidly fouled Kobe as he was going to shoot giving Kobe 3 FTs. Ayon definitely fouled him but it was a stupid thing to do as was leaving Kobe when LA had to have a 3 to just tie.

Things just seem to work out for LA. Teams oblige them by making stupid plays.

But the fact remains that they had to go to double OT to beat us down our best 2 players.

They had to go to OT to be a 10 win team who was playing without Jason Smith & Emeka Okafor and I guess Carl Landry.

Kobe played 52 mins vs us. Close to 50 vs NOLA. I just cant see this team being able to keep this up throughout the end of the season and the grueling playoffs. The refs are going to have to work extra hard to protect them.

In the mean time, we need to run off several wins in a row and get Zbo back and integrated into our offense.

We are now in 5th since the Clips won. We just got to keep winning. I still am not over Tuesday night.Ugggggh!!

I saw on twitter that both Rudy and Z-Bo could be back for this game.
