Conley will get outplayed again by Dragic and FO will try to trade Rudy or Z-bo in retaliation.

I'm not saying it's a definite loss, but it's not a definite win either. The way this team is playing, i can't look at any game and say 'we got this'.

And you are right. I was just messing with you. After games like last night I either self medicate with a beverage, or "self meditate" by doing yoga deep breathing exercises and concentrate on trying to have future positive thoughts.

Aha all good then. It makes it worse for me living in Australia, as most fans go for the big name teams such as Lakers, Heat, Knicks, OKC, Bulls. People usually laugh at me when i tell them i go for the grizzlies. None of my friends are Grizzly fans and so i can't really speak to anyone about the Grizz.

The last 5 times the Grizzlies have visited Phoenix here are the offensive rebounding numbers that the Grizzlies have given up to a horrible rebounding Suns team:21, 19, 18, 16, 19. The Grizzlies put up 16, 14, 10, 9, and 10 in those meetings. The Grizzlies need to do better on the boards against this team in Phoenix.

Hopefully ZBo will be back & stronger, JB's ankle will be good enough that he will get off more than 1 shot, MG will be able to go the whole game without wearing down in the first half, and LH will have decided that it's OK to go with whats working instead of sticking to the same rotation.

Grizz gotta bounce back from that poor outing against the Blazers. Gotta get a winning streak going here. Seems like every team in the west is tough as nails this season. GO GRIZZLIES!!!

Lionel is so freaking stubborn.... anybody see the interview just now? Rob Fisher asks what we got to do when a lot of people go small at us and how to adjusts. LH pretty much says we just got to keep going big and hope we beat them. WHAT AN IDIOT!!!!!!!

Did he literally just say that? Somebody send him packing already before Chris Wallace does something stupid.

I turned from a Suns-fan to a Memphis-fan even though I live in AZ. Suns team sucks this season because they have 4 larger lazy players (Gortat, Scola, O'Neal, Beasely), 1 decent guard Dragic, 2 average guards Telfair and Tucker and only 1 smart player Dudley. Johnson is usually benched. Marshal turned out to be disappointing and so did Beasely.
Suns is hungry for a win but heavy defense can beat them easy. Without heavy D they might win 95-92. Did I mention Suns has no defense?
