Loss. Second night of a back-to-back with travel, plus an opponent that's historically had our number. I'll be happy if we don't get blown out.

Im predicting a W because if we lose the people on the forums are going to go insane.

Wouldn't people have a bit of a right to go insane if we go 1-3 after a major trade that (according to the owner) made us better?

Man I really wish we had Kyle Korver as our starting SG. Been wanting him for years.

I think going into every game we should win. This is no different. Please shut these fickle fans up by winning! Every loss will have every troll and inbred idiot saying, " See, you should have kept Rudy". Like we had a choice or were blowing teams out with him playing for us? Just win Memphis. You got this. Just win.

Back to back against a team that is a terrible match up for the Grizz. Grizz probably lose. But then I actually thought we would beat a bad Phoenix team on our home court. Atlanta 96 Memphis 88. I could be wrong, or I could be right. Or......I could be crazy. I'll let you guys decide. whatever; go Grizz

Davis comes in for Z-Bo, Arthur comes in for Gasol, sometimes you play them together. No way, sounds too complicated

I have a bad feeling about this one too. Our team is not focused right now. There is too much going on around them. Not chalking up a loss, but I can't see us winning this one : /

Hope for the best!

Between Teague and Korver with his 3 point shooting ability our back court gets taken to the wood-shed.

Josh Smith ans Horford are to quick and athletic for Z-BO and Marc. Just a bad match up for the Grizz.

IMO, these mid season trades in terms of chemistry, along with talent loss, seem to have really disemboweled the gut core of the Grizz. And the team is almost back to having to go through training camp while having to play seasoned teams.

PS: I think Atlanta is 4th in the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage accuracy. And you know how good the Grizz are at getting out and guarding against 3-point shooting.

If we lose (badly) I have a feeling this very well could be Lionel's last game on the bench. Just a hunch though...
