NCAA is over. It's time for the city to unite behind the Grizzlies!

I agree, I am amazed how a city can still be obsessed with a coach who left 3 seasons ago. I bet on sports talk radio in Memphis the past several days, there has been as much Calipari talk as there probably is in Lexington, KY. It is ridiculous. I am in agreement that the city needs to get behind the Grizzlies 100%.

The Tigers are through til next year and Cal is gone. Get over it Memphians. The Grizzlies are yours. Get behind them.

I didn't pay much attention to the Tigers after Maui.

I admit that the lockout has played a big part in my peronal fandom this season but I've been definetly paying more attention to the Grizz. Then again, I am more of a fan of the pro than the college game anyway. For all the flaws with the Association (ref bias, star treatment, money imbalances, etc.) I don't think there is a better game.

Yep! It would be nice to see, that's for sure. Would also be nice if alot of folks at the games would quit sitting on their hands and whispering!
I agree though, the Grizzlies could really use some support from here on out!

It certainly is pathetic isn't it!

Anyways, should be a sure win!

We should win this. We need to keep winning to compete with the Clippers for that 4 spot. They look like they found their groove so take advantage of every sub 500 team we can.

This game is even more important than tonight's was! We can't have a letdown here after the huge win tonight! Gotta keep the pressure on the LA's (who play each other on Wednesday btw.)

Looks like we may be coming together at the right time!

Come on Grizzlies fans, let's show this team that we have their backs!

if the Grizz can play like they did tonight, should be a good win. ZBo should be a huge plus in the paint. Don't have to worry about Ellis so that will help even though he was a non factor against the Bucks. Good luck Grizz....keep up the energy.

BTW...when is MC11 and DC coming back?? Need those guys. Pargo played well against OKC but the offense is still a bit stagnant with him out there.

Might want to sit the starters more than usual for this one. Don't play Conley or DC even if their ready to go. The Dallas game is more valuable. We need to be as fresh as possible for that one. Besides, I think we can beat GSW at home with the bench playing most of the game.

Man, anyone else agree that it's about time for a blowout!!!! lol These tight games are getting old. I'd sure like to see us come out and destroy these guys!

Don't get me wrong, I'll take a win any way we can get it. But it sure would be a welcomed sight to blow these guys outta the arena and allow our guys to get some rest, mentally and physically!

If we can't beat a team that is starting three rookies then we don't deserve to make the playoffs.

I think the Players should not look at the competition Warriors/OCK Heat/Bobcats the key is playing Grizzlies basketball.

If we win tonight, Dallas tmrw can go either way in my mind. Going 2-1 on a B2B2B is expected for a contender.

If I had a choice between the two games though, I would definitely choose to win the Dallas one. It's simply more valuable since they are an immediate threat to our positioning. Plus a win would give us the tiebreaker which would be huge.
