Playoffs preview?

If so I hope it's a game 1 preview, meaning we have home court advantage.

Difficult matchup. Must win to make a statement to the playoffs; maybe we will face them can't loose all games.

Am I the only one with a bad feeling about this game?

I'm not worried at all. We're playing some of the best basketball I've seen in years. With a day of rest and this being a home game, I'm pretty confident.

A win would be a nice statement going into the Playoffs

Gonna be a different game with the "more healthy" ZBo. Hope Tony will be back. We've been playing good without him, but he's still an intergral part of our game.

I love TA but his bone head moves seem to have gotten more frequent latley. I definitely want him playing against Kobe, KD and the like but I think we have done great on defense without him. Q has been great and so has OJ.

I hope the Kings can do us a favor tonight and get us a little closer to that 4 spot.

Grizzlies must win the next four games (Clippers, Phoenix, Spurs and Utah).

If by April 14 we are 36-23, we can hold on the 4th spot come the playoffs.

I know that will not happen but in this particular game I would start OJ... I think QP would be a better matchup for Young and OJ for Foye but that is just me.

Maybe like a lot of you, I have been watching a lot of the Clippers' games on League Pass this year. One thing I can tell you is to get ready for a 3 pt barrage. Its like the Clips are all lobs for dunks or 3 point shooting.

There are a couple of constants or givens to look for in this game: Chris Paul will whine and cry. He is a whiny, crying little stump of a PG, but he is great. He controls the game. You get up on him, he will go around you. You play off of him, and he can hit the 3. If he gets in the lane, he can draw contact. Our team D will have to be on point.

Another constant is that the Clips are going to jack 3s. They shoot a ton of them. Randy Foye is simply on fire. He can run you out of the arena. Foye, Paul, Young, Butler, Mo Williams (if he plays--he was out last night with a toe injury), Bobby Simmons-who?? yes Bobby Simmons, Eric Bledsoe--they ALL shoot 3s. They are becoming Orlando Magic-West. So we will HAVE to be on point with our perimeter defense.

For the Grizzlies to win this game they must play tough inside and close out fast on the perimeter. It will be fun to watch Blake Griffin vs Zach Randolph but the real matchup with be Mayo on Foye. Randy Foye has been red-hot on the perimeter and Mayo will need to respect his range and show off a little of his own.

I live in OK and I cannot stand Blake Griffin. I have zero respect for the BS whining and flopping he pulls on the court. He was booed loudly in OKC last year. Randolph or whoever better give him about a 3 foot cushion or he will spontaneously flop to the ground. It's one thing to sell a call a little but this guy is just one big muscled up F-tard who needs to be taught a lesson.

Go watch the acting job he pulled on Cousins the other night. Classic Blake Griffin. This guy is a real d-bag.

He thinks he gets fouled every play. The whole Clippers team are floppers. I'm glad Cousins spoke out, the flopping is getting out of hand and if more players spoke on it, I think there should be penalties for obvious acting jobs. Cousins didn't even touch him yet he does a delay flop, and the refs fall for it.
