Another good practice game...the team will gel a lot more...three days and a shoot around is more than enough for an NBA player

I expect the Grizz to run the Suns outta the building, given they'll have 3 days of practice/rest.

Good 3 days of rest/practice. Almost 4 if you count Tuesday too.

This is a should win no doubt just like our Wizard game. Suns just cannot hang with us for all 48 if we play a tight low turnover game.

Conley/Bayless/Allen starting lineup needs to die, none of that this game

The key for this and all the games now is getting Gasol going early also Bayless needs to keep playing well off the bench as a SG and not a PG running the team.

Huh we better see him in the starting lineup. But I'm afraid LH will use the same lame lineup. Remove Bayless put in Tay ASAP!

I would think Prince starts no doubt but then again LH is our coach and it seems that TA starts no matter what.

I mean if we had Kobe and Durant I guess he'd star TA at PF :ph34r:

I love Hollins was candid in the interview... Wroten wont play much anymore or at all anymore "Going back to his role or maybe even Reno," Hollins said, referring to the Grizzlies' NBA Development League affiliate." He also said Davis and Daye have to earn minutes. As of now, playoff rotation...Hollins said he will only play 8.

TA- Q-Pon
Prince-Q-Pon
Zbo- Arthur
Gasol- Arthur

Only playing 8 seems like a sure way to exhaust your men and waste possible talents like TW, CJ, JL, Daye, and Davis.

They only play 11 games this month, maybe he's looking at this like an opportunity to find his pieces

I have been a big LH supporter but statements like that seem either really stupid or incredibly stubborn. These guys can and must help this team. But the only way that will happen is to let them play. I am not saying 20 minutes but they have to get comfortable in game situations. It almost seems that he is rebelling against the trade and he does not want Davis or Daye to work out because this would give credance to the FO's decision making.Or he is putting pressure on them to make another move.

Ok this is getting redonkulous. In the movie Moneyball, the GM (Brad Pitt) and the stat guru (Jonah Hill) make these trades to better the team but the stubborn old school coach refuses to adopt their strategy and play the new players........sounding familiar?

Hollins has been stubborn since he was hired..that will never change but if somebody is lights out ..he will play them...Im not his biggest fan or critic but he only makes BIG changes after losing streaks so if we dont lose consecutive games...he will continue to go with his first mind..Tayshaun is the only must play guy...the other guys are young and mistake prone, so they will have to show mastery of all our sets before he gives them a real shot..

Totally agree. Bayless should be play with Wroten and TA should play Sf only in split minutes. Prince to start and Daye to get some burn... don't believe this will happen... LH still our coach.
