That's actually not a bad starting lineup now that I see it like that.

Their bench is very weak though.

Should be a pretty easy win here.

Ryan Anderson comes off that bench and he can get hot very quickly.

Don't underestimate any NBA team, especially in their house. New Orleans has had a lot of hard fought games this year.

As hot and crazy as the playoff race is getting, definitely a TCB kinda game. Hoping that the guys are feeding off last nights win and keep carrying that momentum. I am semi-worried about this being a let down game, but I have a feeling that GnG will end up winning the night!

Over the last few years, the only time the Grizzlies have lost to the Hornets have been the game after the Grizzlies have come off a winning a game after a playoff quality team.

This won't be an easy win, especially since it is a divisional rival that just beat Boston.

Did I see somewhere that Jason Smith was injured? That guy causes problems for us. (I wouldn't wish for him to be injured, though)

Word^ And Ryan Anderson is a Grizz killer. Cannot leave this guy open. He can shoot the rock.

That's probably good for them and bad for us. I think Brian Roberts has been better in the backcourt for them. He seemed to hurt us at times.

Williams will aggressively double team ZBo this game. Going to be pretty hard with Anthony Davis back.

Nothing comes easy for the Grizzlies in the "Big Easy".

agreed, plus Monty Williams ALWAYS has his teams play hard. This is kinda a double edged sword here with Monty. As an NBA fan, I hope NOLA continues to keep him and build around ADavis and Grievis and Eric Gordon (if the little B will just quit whining and play basketball for the huge contract he has now).

On the other hand, as a Grizz fan, I honestly believe that the future is bright for our division rival right down I-55 and NOLA wont be the punching bag that they have been much longer. This will make the SW Division only the absolute most difficult division in the NBA and maybe in all of pro sports.

NOLA is going to get better, much better
HOU is building around Harden and are in the playoffs as of now
DAL--wont be down for long. Bank of Cuban will be open this off season
MEM-Top 5 team in the whole league
SAS-Top 3 team in the whole league.

Monty Williams is a good young coach who players will play for. On further review, maybe he should leave the SW Division for all of our sakes. LOL He had his team completely gutted by the CP trade--gutted. They got the first pick and are rebuilding. Even when they were bad bad, they alwayed played hard and tough for the whole game.

Monty is a helluva coach. No doubt about it. (Except he went for the oldest trick in the book when he didnt defend the basket on the out of bounds play against LAL and Kobe made the Hornets look foolish as he streaked down the floor for a dunk) Hey, you live and learn

I remember somewhere it was mentioned Monty was ZBo's coach in Portland and really respected ZBo's game. They kept on double teaming ZBo in one of our earlier games where he was fresh off of a 38-22 game. Let's just hope ZBo doesn't demand the ball too much in this game and shoot over double teams. Or at least if he does it wouldn't be like the OKC game.

I really want Marc to get a triple double this season. Looks like a good start for that so far this game.
