Im confident we will win. It would be huge lift to win. Being down 3-1 isnt impossible though. It wont happen though.

Being down 3-1 and winning the series won't happen. Being 2-2 and battling it out is possible.

We'll be done if we lose this game (barring a miracle). STICK WITH WHAT WORKS HOLLINS. TAKE CONTROL OF THIS TEAM AND BE A D**N LEADER.

def a Must-Win. If we loose this one we didn't deserve to go win in the playoffs. Then we need to retool the lineup for next year.

Marc needs at least 10 fga and 15 pts in addition to everything else he does.

I know being down 3-1 is difficult. But if thats the case, all we have to do is steal one on the road. I would love to turn it into a best of 3 series. Im not counting our guys out ever though until we actually are eliminated. Remember the Clippers are hitting a high percentage of their shots. I wont count on them to hitting such high percentages the rest of the series.

I'm a Clipper fan and I think Vinny Del Negro is the Ramada Inn of coaches. Mediocre on every level. He can't hold Greg Poppovich's jock strap.

But listening to Lionel Hollins during the 4th quarter has shown me, he's not much better. He gives the most generic speeches. I love his vibe and he's a hard nose coach. But he doesn't get the team to make sure to give the ball to Gasol in the 4th quarter. Or the 2nd half, for that matter.

The Grizzly offense should go through, ALL STAR, Marc Gasol. And then outside to Rudy Gay. And Z-bo leading the 2nd team. Those are my 2 cents and just my observations.

This series is INTENSE.

Play Tony more than O.J. and we've got a shot. We need his defensive presence when/if the Clippers go to their small ball lineup of Paul, Bledsoe, Griffin, Evans and Foye/Young. Combined in both Clipper wins, that lineup is +31 against the Grizzlies, who have been countering that lineup with Conley, Mayo, Gay, Speights and Gasol. I say have Tony and Zach in the game instead. Tony strengths the perimeter defense while Zach balances that with increased offensive threat, plus he likes to defend against Griffin. It hasn't been Griffin and Evans providing the bulk of the Clippers offense in those decisive fourth quarter runs. It's been the perimeter guys, and we have been leaving our best perimeter defender on the bench.

If you doubt me on the numbers, check the game flows at popcornmachine.net.

I want to see a team that broke Heat's 17 home game winning streak. Against Clippers, it would be a BLOW-OUT.

Ok, lets take note of this one.

To be clear, are you quitting for some time or forever?

Word....... I'm gone anyway. Win or lose. Final words from me.

CLIPPERS ARE BETTER. The team won't be in Memphis long enough to even get to the Western Conference Finals. Hollins is all talk, and so is this board. Totally a waste of time and one's life.

All will not be lost. You will always have Tiger High.
