Last year the Lakers and Grizzlies tied for 3rd place.
Clippers/Grizzlies/Lakers/OKC/Spurs could all end up within a few games of each other.

Big game for playoff seeding later.

We SHOULD have had the tiebreaker though but the game in Memphis was fixed.

Agreed. I don't expect Gasol, Z-Bo or Rudy to dominate. Rudy will get his 15-18 points, Gasol will do his facilitating. Z-Bo will get his usual double double, but none will actually dominate the game. This game is up to Conley to take over, along with the bench crew.

Tough matchup. Conley and Gay should get their points but Tony Allen has been on fire for the past 2 games by out shooting Marc Gasol and I expect him to continue his stellar play with a 2-11 shooting performance.

Key statement game. Losing to a middle pack team like Denver is always the best way to lose. We can't lose to the Lakers if we are trying to create this image of dominance.

LOL. Hollins has managed Allen so poorly these past few games. I really think they should put a cap to his playing time or something. This is probably one of the best games to put Allen longer than usual anyway.

My guess is although Dwight and Pau will have big games, Lakers will have a sloppy game with lots of TOs.

This will be a good game. Only annoying thing will be all the Yellow and Purple that will be in the stands. It will be a good game to bounce back from that Denver loss though. They'll be ready to win again. Hopefully the Grizzlies won't eat too much turkey though. GO GRIZZLIES!!

With 4 of those starting 5 the Lakers still scare me. Griz need to jump on them early and play all 4 quarters with a refuse to lose mind set. Big, Big game. We need our swagger back. Go Griz!!!

Of course I hate losing but hopefully Hollins and company used it as motivation for the fellas! It's a good early season alarm and it's good to get everyone on high alert before they get too high on the HOG! A few more wins and they might have forgotten what being a Grizzly means but now they can refocus and realize they've become the HUNTED instead of the hunter!!! It feels good to have a bullseye on our back for a change! Facing the Old mamba is gonna be a good test to see how much we've really matured!

I know this sounds strange, but of all their guys, don't sleep on Artest. Normally he's clownin', but he's been stroking from deep lately.

2nd best center in the league needs to grab more than 6 boards this game like he did vs Denver. 7 rpg in 36 minutes sucks, he needs to bring that way up

its kinda hard to get a lot of boards with zbo as ur teammate. But I do agree with the fact he needs to step up on the boards
