The Bulls aren't nearly as deadly without Rose, but this still isn't a game we can take lightly. I'm calling a close Grizzlies win.

I think we can easily win if we put effort into it

I reckon the Utah win sparks another win streak. It looked like the players were sick of the way we were playing and went back to Memphis ball.

I hate how fast people write off what we are doing as an organization. We lost some games, it happens. We have a **** good team and I appreciate everything that each player and coach does. It's all about the juju ppl!!!

We need a win streak... Go grizz

Has Nate Robinson been starting ahead of Hinrich? Any reason why?

that is a good way of putting it. Lionel was obviously so sick of it, he couldnt even stand to be in the room and watch the highlights (or lowlights) of the 1st half of the game last night so he walked out on them as if to say "if you guys are quitting, then so am I."

Well the leaders took it to heart and, as you say, got back to Memphis ball.

This Chicago game is not a gimme just because we had a great 2nd half in UTAH and we are back at home. We really have guard against that. CHI plays tough defense. That is just coach Thibs. So Grizz better just keep doing what they did last night in the 2nd half and not let up.

This game will be hard. Grizz have to know that. Not going to win just because its in FEF

Yep. Denver and Atlanta is proof enough. This will be a tough game. I believe Chicago is playing better on the road than at home.

Lets have a loud crowd and hopefully better attendance than usual for a Monday night game. Go Griz!!!

This will be a scrappy game with Noah down low. But I feel we are back to our winning ways. Time to go on a crazy win streak. OKC needs to lose a game for crying out loud. I miss being at the top of the list already.

Hinrich is ready to go. Robinson will go back to the bench. This should be a good game. The Bulls team stats are very close to ours.

Here is a little something to get things going before tonights game. I'm a Rams fan so I was over on their boards and people were complaining about Bradford loosing the game yesterday. All he did was throw for over 300yds with 65% completion ratio 3TDs & a 2pt Conversion, and distributed the ball like he was a PG but he threw 1 int. but... He was a looser that cost them the game never mind Peterson ran for 250 yds &2 TDs by himself. I guess things are the same every where.

I have a sick mind. Got me to think about names parents should not give their kids:

Harry Balsac (I worked in a call center in college and this was the name of a customer. he pronounced in ball-sick but I know a ball sack when I see one.

Anita Cox
