Biggest game of the season thus far? No matter what happens in Miami.

Conley needs to do a better job of guarding Lebron's mom's boyfriend.

I got 3 free tickets to this game so it's my first one of the season and I hate that it took so long to get up there. Stoked though. I also have no idea where the tickets will be at, a guy that works at an environmental company is setting up a booth for the lobby is getting 4 tickets but he won't know where they are until about 5:00PM tomorrow.

Big point... West owned Conley... If Rudy play tomorrow like today and we play D we win it.

Gotta go out and give the same effort they did against the Heat. Hopefully a big crowd with it being a Saturday and against the defending champs.....better sell out the Forum tomorrow night. Memphis!!! Please don't go to Tunica and give your money to the Casinos! Go support your Grizzlies!!!

We are WAY ahead of where I had us after the B-T-B-T-B. We need at least one of these 2, then we need to take care of the weaker teams we should beat.

There's enough of them playing each other that I'm not even trying to figure it out. It's nice being ahead of that pack.

Love Portland hanging an "L"on Dallas in Big D and taking the old guys to OT to do it.

This was the game I was pointing to even before the Miami game. Its a division game, a game for the tiebreaker. Miami win was great and unexpected.

Dont you know the Clippers and Dallas, Denver, Houston all looked at the schedule and saw us playing at Miami and penciled this game in as a loss for us and they all thought they would pick up a half game on us.

BUT we didnt cooperate and took the game. Now we got to FOLLOW that up with a big game tonight. Really hope Grizz fans will come out and fill up FEF. Its a Sat night. Come on out Grizz fans. Lets get the FEF rockin and take the series from Dallas

Amen!!! Tuesday's crowd was an embarrassment for a playoff stretch run game. There is absolutely, positively, NO EXCUSE not to sell out the Forum on a Saturday night, in the stretch run of a playoff chase, against the defending champs. If anyone thinks otherwise, they don't deserve an NBA franchise in their backyard. Preaching to the choir on this board, but it is time for these Memphians to get off of their wallets and support this team! Go Grizz!!!!!!!!!

Mavs in OT last night. Dallas needed 43 minutes from Dirk Nowitzki, 42 from Shawn Marion, and 37 from Jason Terry. However, they are 12 and 6 on the second night of back-to-backs.

Also, from dallasnews.com........
Center Ian Mahinmi was excused from Friday's game to be with his fiancée, Alexis, for the birth of their child.
Carlisle said he was uncertain whether Mahinmi would be joining the team in Memphis for Saturday's game.

And...........
Delonte West fell victim to a fluke injury in the shoot-around Friday morning when he came down from a jump shot and landed on a stray basketball and turned his ankle. While the ankle was sore, West, who missed 21 games with a fractured and dislocated ring finger, started at point guard. "I'm not missing games," he said. "These games are all important right now, know what I mean?"
