Don't overlook Portland. They are 8 and 2 prior to their game tonight with Toronto.

To be more specific; don't overlook any NBA team. The Grizz are not a team that can just "show up". They grit and grind. And they have to do it for 4 quarters.

Blazers don't have much beyond the starting five and aren't good on the road. The Griz are at home, playing on a Friday night, and coming off their bestcoffensive game in weeks.

I like the Griz in this one.

And getting rid of Gerald Wallace really helped Nic Batum to improve this season.

Myers Leonard is out, so a bad bench gets even worse.

I'd never really stopped to look at the Blazer bench as a whole, but now that I do, I agree with the consensus here.

Lillard is such a talent and a fun player to watch... the Grizz need a strong showing in January after the slide in December and the swirling rumors about the core's future in Memphis.

Grizzlies by 6.

NBA TV reporting that Zbo will NOT play tonight due to having the flu. Maybe that was why he didnt play much against BOS. Everybody said it was KG figuring him out but maybe the flu was setting in.

Anyway, the report is no Zbo tonight
