Must win... win will help to finish their chance to make the Playoffs and keep the run to the 3rd...remember that we call them out in the last game and loose once again... I think we are 0-2 against them. Must win.

If they handle them handily, I will be a happy panda.

Gotta believe we keep it rollin! Can't look past these guys. They're decent. Having said that though, I just don't see us having a let down here. Our chemistry may be at an all-time high and our guys look like they're having alot of fun out there!

Folks, we got ourselves a squad here in Memphis!!!! I love that the fans are starting to show up and cheer em on.

GRIZZ WIN!!!

Why do the Suns give the Grizz so much trouble? Is it match-up problems?

Nash does seem to give Conley fits, and Gortat also seems to give Marc problems.

Yep! Phoenix is playing hard just to get in the play-offs.
The #3 spot to #10 in the West has turned into a war zone for teams trying to get positioning for the play-offs

Yeah, the past 2 games had an really immediate sense of urgency, first to keep Dallas below us in the standings, and then to close in on homecourt advantage in the playoffs against the Clippers.

This one is still important but Phoenix is fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive, and Memphis will really have to fight against a letdown after those last 2 statement games. They are also going to San Antonio for another possible statement game right after this, and it might be tempting to look ahead. I do agree that it is definitely a danger game. Grizz have to match the Suns' intensity, because you know they will be fighting hard.

Hey everyone, I didn't see a thread for introductions so I just wanted to say hi. I'm from Europe, and I'm more of a player fan rather than a team one. In other words, I don't have a default team to cheer for, and I follow whatever squad Gilbert is a part of. I've watched couple of games recently, and Memphis seem like a really great team. I hope we have a good play-off run.

The only statement I am concerned with against Phoenix is to get a win. We haven't accomplished that this season and no team should be considered a legitimate playoff challenger who can't win a single game against a non-playoff team in their conference.

Well the Grizz would be an excellent choice of a team to become a fan of. They aren't the media darlings or in a big market, they are just an awesome team.

Welcome to the boards Agent Zero. Player fans generally take a bit of abuse from team fans (like myself) but jsut remember in the end we are all pulling for the same thing, our players to play their best and the team to go as far in the playoffs as possible.
