LA has to play spurs 3 times and I think they would have to lose at least 4 games for us to catch them. You never jnow though, Kobe is injured and missing games the opportunity to jump them might present itself.

Lakers are only two games ahead of us. They have eight games left, while we have ten. If they go 5-3, we have to go 9-1. Definitely doable. Lakers have to go 7-1 to completely block us from getting by them. They still have games against Denver, OKC, Dallas, Golden State and Sacramento, as well as the three with the Spurs. That's six games against current playoff teams, and two tough games on the road against GSW and the Kings. The road to the three seed is not easy for either Los Angeles team. That's why I picked us for it. :D

10-1 with the only loss @SAS. 107 points against the Cavs.

4th seed. :)
Well, I was right about the San Antonio game. Grizz have to go undefeated from here on out for my final 11 prediction to come true.

Let's go! GNG!!

And I extend condolences to our first elimination. Sorry, Subliminal, I think they might have won last night if Tony had been playing and the refs weren't missing the pebbles in their whistles during the fourth quarter.

Oopsie! After a flat game, we have to say adieu to our largest single group of competitors this set: lilgregmonroe, Cam., STS, Grizz'dOutThreader, GTG, Southern Dreadz, istanbulgrizzlies & Grizzled Vet. Appreciate the optimism, guys, it just didn't work out.

Was there anyone who predicted the New Oreleans game as a loss? That was probably the biggest fluke of the season.

I didn't predict it but I was very nervous about the game coming at the end of Redemption Week with the team beating 3 teams they hadn't beaten all season, especially Utah and Phoenix who were chasing the last playoff spot. The Hornets were 3-1 in their last four games and the only loss was to the Lakers by two points. They have been very good since EricGordon returned to the lineup.

It's not nearly as surprising as the loss at home to Toronto in my opinion.

I did. But I have the Grizz winning the remaining 6 games. Please pull for me.

PS: I will still lose the contest, but the most important issue is that the Grizzlies win the remaining games.

I figured we would lose either the Twolves or Hornets game. My head told me to go with the Hornets since we played them twice. Knowing that it's hard to sweep a team in the regular season, I knew it would be one of those teams.

I think my 9-2 record will end up coming true. I don't think we will lose again unless the team decides to rest their starters.

Three games left and the Grizzlies are at six and two. Three game home stand to finish the season. Let's be loud enough at the Grindhouse that they have to tie the roof down!

Make that 7 - 2! Next game - Cleveland Cavaliers for the Pick'Em Game. After that, we'll know who the final two will be. Good luck to all remaining competitors.

And our final two contestants are an all capital affair! Coming in with a 9 - 2 selection out of Memphis, we have BHZMAFIA! And in the other corner, selecting 8 - 3, the man from South of the state line in Horn Lake, SNAUZ! Good Luck, gentlemen, and may the best man win. Me, I'm going with the guy who used TPIR strategy.

Well I can finish with four perfect pick weeks out of 6. Only won twice but I was close. Not bad over 66 games.

Congrats to the finalists and Bzmafia, your squeeze play on me worked.
