We really have to win this one. I think this week will be good for us. We will go through some adversity but team morale will likely get stronger. These trips are great for bonding and going to battle together. Hope to see z and d get back out there but I'm loving the way guys have picked up their play with them out. This is the most exciting time for basketball with march madness and teams battling for the playoffs. Get ready for the ride! Hot wings and beer.

We will be an extremely focused team in the playoffs these grizz do not want another 1st round out. Can't wait for playoff games in the grind house. There is no other feeling than a 4th quarter in the grind house during the playoffs

IMO, we really need Zbo and DA back for this one. Not to win the game, but to ensure they don't get 'cold' going into the last couple weeks of the season and eventually the Playoffs.

We never win in Portland,Denver,LA or Utah.So we need to set the tone for this road trip with this game no joking around we need to focus.

If we can go 2 and 2 on this road trip, I would deem it a successful one. Winning 2 road games out of 4 in 5 days while going 2000+ miles in 2 different time zones would be pretty darn good. All that travel, two high altitude cites, and playing teams that always seem to be bad match-ups for the Grizz will really test our Grizz.


Naturally I want 4 wins and 0 losses. But looking at it from a realistic prognosis, It's hard to believe we can win 4 out of 4 games in a 5 day period. Still............. GO GRIZZ !!!!

Honestly I hope ZBO, Arthur don't come back for this one.. Rest Marc and even Conley as well. We are injury prone in Portland. I believe this is were ZBO hurt his leg? Idk. I know every time we play there someone gets hurt... Basically this is were Damon stoudaimire career ending injury occurred.. I just don't like playing in this place.

No, Zach was injured in Chicago when O.J. clipped him.

No Reggie Evans, no Kenyon Martin. I like ZBo's chances exploding against the Clips.

umm, Portland is really good at home and played the Grizzlies really tight on the road. Memphis has to absolutely win this game or they got a high chance of going 0-4 on the road trip. Beating the Clips on the 2nd of a b2b would be great, but this win is more attainable and you got to go for it with full force because it won't be easy

Zbo is supposed to dress out but hopefully will only play 10 - 15 minutes in order to get the 4 game rust knocked off so he'll be fresh for the Clippers.

13 of the final 21 games are on the road. Thats gonna be rough.

Blazers have been playing some good team ball lately, having a lot of recent games where all of their starters scored in double figures. Maynor had 20 off the bench against the Spurs.
Grizzlies must play 4 quarters of lock down defense or they will be the 21st victim at the Rose Garden this season.
Grizzlies 86 - Blazers 83
