We win this we control the West for a few more weeks. Lose it and we could see ourselves chasing the Spurs

All the pressure is on the Spurs for this one. They're well rested, at home, and needing to respond to the Popovich controversy. They need this game more than we do.

Griz are playing the second game of a back-to-back, and are guaranteed the division lead win or lose. They've won 4 in a row. A win on this game will be gravy.

My sense is that the Spurs will respond to Pop and try to run the Griz out of the gym. Their fans will be into it too.

I think the key for the Griz is to muck this game up (which is why I hope TA plays). Also, there's no excuse for Rudy not to dominate, as both Leonard and Jackson are out. I also expect Zbo to bounce back from the weak performance against Detroit. In the past (per-injury), Zbo always seemed bounce back after bad games.

Spurs will probably win, but I'd love to be wrong.

The good news is that they have no Leonard or Jackson to guard Rudy.

The bad news is that I think we will lose. I agree with a lot of what Iggy said. I see it being a close game for the most part and the Spurs making a big run at the beginning of the 4th quarter to go up double figures. We will fight back, but fall short.

During the post game show on the radio tonight, Jon Roser said Tony could have played if needed, but they decided to give him the rest.

Chris Wallace will be in NYC for the game. Let him know what bar he should see the game at.

Rudy should be able to score on Green at will.

Geeze, what's with all the doubt about this game? We can win this game for sure. Our guys are on a back to back but they've still won games regardless of this. We've got the outside shooting that we were lacking last season and the season before. It'll be a tough win for sure, but I say the Grizz win 97-91

Just hope that TA plays

Yeah guys, have a little confidence! I think this is a very winnable game. Yes the Spurs are tough, but so was Miami....and OKC....and New York....and the Lakers.

Fact is, we are a VERY good team that can compete with anyone at any time.

I dont think anyone is saying we can't compete guys.. fact of the matter is that we will lose another game this year, multiple more losses will happen this year, and guys are just saying they have a feeling this could be one of them.. as do i.

SAS will be fired up, and we will probably be a little tired? maybe? maybe not.. im ready for tip! lol

PREDICTION:

In what could be a preview of the Western Conference Finals, the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the San Antonio Spurs in San Antonio, 102-98.

Memphis owns NBA's best record at 13-2.

FALSE.

The Memphis Grizzlies record will be 77-5.

I hope the Zoo Crew is ready for this, especially Arthur. It'll be nice having his athleticism back on the floor. I also hope that WE's drought is over.

Yeah. I hope this was just precautionary to ensure his readiness for tonight's game. We're going to need him.

I expect ZBo to go for 20 & 10.

Rudy needs a high efficiency night.
