Trade may have made the Wizards a tad bit tougher....but we'll have Z-Bo back. Should be a W, especially the way we play D and the way they lack discipline on the offensive side of the ball.

Great, so we get to face Nene again. :rolleyes:

Just our luck that the worst team in the league suddenly improves right before we play them. Hopefully they won't have their chemistry right yet...

Either way, this should still be a fairly easy win.

Nothing seems to be fairly easy for the Grizz as of late. Imo this game will will not be easy in any form. Nene gives the Grizz fits.

yeah, maybe Rudy can "accidentally" give Nene a nice elbow to the dome. This game won't be easy but the Grizz should still be able to pull it off....

Actually, let me rephrase that - I'm concerned. If we don't lollygag, this is an easily winnable game, but we lollygagged tonight and got embarrassed. These Wizards just beat the Lakers last week, so they will come in thinking that they are good enough to win. If we, again, come in expecting an easy win, we could get embarrassed again.

I hope the Toronto game will make us refocus. I think they expected a easy match with Z bo returning. Im sure Hollins will point the tons of miscues we had. We had no business being in the game yet we were.

If Conley had trouble with Bayless, imagine someone like John Wall taking him off the dribble. Hopefully Crawford will be shot jacking all night to bail us out.

nothing comes easy, and these teams are trying to play spoiler. Can't blame them one bit.

Its hard seeing us drop 3 straight at home. I think the Grizzlies take care of business on Sunday.

Sure, its easy to expect something to go wrong after dropping one to Toronto, but you can't expect it to continue.

You don't trade both, you trade one since they can't coexist

They were not the problem tonight.

That's a very small sample size to say they can't co-exist. They were 31-26 last season together. 12-3 in the last 15 games. That's a bigger sample size.

Don't be. I would consider the Rators game nothing more than "rogue" loss (similar to the @CHI game). We just had an off night. I definitely wouldn't think of this loss as some kind of sign of things to come.

Zbo's back (and looked great), Rudy's back (and looked pretty good), and we're still in 5th place in the Western Conference. We're fine.

Trade Zbo and Rudy Gay...Not a big fan of the rebounding or clutch shots.

Raptors are a good team. Better then their record. They have been playing EVERYBODY tough lately. Also I live just outside of DC and my best friend who is a Wizards fan said Nene will not be ready to play for Sundays game.

Just like the Raptors don't sleep on the Wiz. John Wall is an animal and without Blatche starting chucking up shots, Nick Young and Mcgee out of here with their low BBIQ the Wizards actually play some D. Without Nene Kevin Seraphin should get the start. They are a young team that plays a lot of D but really only have two scorers Wall and Crawford. Our bigs should handle them. But Singleton will play solid D on Rudy much like Kwhai Leonard was able to do. Booker reminds me of a better Alexandar Johnson (if anyone of you remember him). He is tough, real tough and tried real hard not to skilled offensively but is a good dunker. He just killed the Lakers and also Seraphin is another tough player who plays with energy. Should be a good victory if we can slow down Wall. Conley might have a little trouble because Wall is right in that same class as Westbrook and Rose. Still young and plays on a bad team though. I read somewhere that he leads the league in missed assist opportunities by a big margin in front of Rondo.

Go Grizz.
