Nuggets are a team which match up with us well. Iggy vs Gay will be interesting. I'm predicting a W at home, moving to 9-1.

Iguodala sucks in a Denver uniform. He just can't shoot.

well the Spurs took out Denver by 25 at home last night, so if we do fancy ourselves as contenders we need to do the same. ;)

Yeah, I think Denver lacks the defense needed to stop Grizzlies shooters. I don't see this game as problem. Grizzlies were able to overcome two of the best defensive teams in the league in the Bobcats and the Knicks.

As long as the grizz stay true to themselves we should pullout a big win. It will be close though. We should eat them alive in the paint but their outside guys matchup well with our outside guys.

They are extremely energetic and athletic. If this were the second night of a back to back I would be extremely worried. I think we finally have a team that doesn't look ahead so the lakers game shouldn't influence our performance.

I think there will be a lot of points scored. I'll say grizz win 110-105

Faried vs ZBO should be fun.

I think we have this because our bench plays better at home.They when o for 8 from 3 vs the bobcats(<something like that)so I don't see that happening again.

The Nuggets need this game in the worst way after a disappointing start to the season and getting blown out by the Spurs. And the Griz have played intense playoff level basketball in last their several games. This could be a let down game. We can't play them the way we played the Cats.

Something tells me after the big win and a day rest and at home they'll be ready to smoke the nuggets...

Hope our bench plays well. Denver will be fired up to end our win streak. They also will be seeking revenge for our sweeping them last year. I may be wrong, but I believe we beat them every game last year.

You are correct, sir. I hope we can duplicate it this season.

For the 1st time ever we have the targets on our backs. Our guys need to realize this and know that these teams are going to want to send us back to the basement....BUT IT AIN"T GONNA HAPPEN.

GO GRIZZ!!!

Nuggets are a talented team that match up pretty well and will cause some problems. They have a speedy pg, a blue collar pf that snares rebounds, and a raw international center.

They handled Utah and with the Lakers up next, even if several days away, the Grizzlies are ripe for a bad game.

I like to be pessimistic before games like these, but I still expect the Grizzlies to win.
