Beat the LOLakers.

With the urgency of the Lakers making the playoffs, I expect another 30-5 free throw disparity.

I don't think Nash is going to play.

When we win this game I cannot wait to see how the media darlings spin it! Should be comical.

Expect them to make up some BS excuse. I predict 33 - 2 Free Throws for them.

This is a win for us. We come in, assert our gameplan and take care of business. Howard can't hold Gasol and will prob foul out. If Nash even starts, he can't stop Conley from going for 25. Can't wait to watch it.

TRAP GAME
Since when have the Lakers become a trap game?

If we can overcome this factor and the second line of defense (refs in LA), we've got this game. I want ZBO to have a huge game to get on pace for his playoff tear

Watch the refs in this one. The NBA wants the Lakers in the playoffs.

So do we think TA or Prince will play the bulk of the minutes on Kobe?

Depends upon who D'Antoni has on the floor with Kobe. With Nash, Meeks, Pau and Howard, let Tayshaun have him. Meeks will be running around the court through screens while Kobe will be set up outside as the secondary facilitator with Nash. If Clark or Jamison are in replacing Meeks, then you give the Bean to Tony.

ESPN now reporting Nash doubtful Friday due to a sore hip. He missed practice today.

The refs are not going to be kind with us at all but this team is used to it. I say this is a blowout win

Yeah, I have a bad feeling about this one. I hope I'm wrong but I suspect Conley and one of our bigs will end up in early foul trouble. That's pretty much how they beat the Pacers. Refs neutralized Hibbert and Blake and Jamison went crazy with the 3 ball.

Chances that the Lakers have 20+ FTA's and the Grizzlies have <10 FTA's?

I doubt Howard will foul out b/c the refs will want to keep him in the game in order to favor for the Lakers to win per the League Office.

92.6%

BUT!!! At the end of the day, Grizzlies STILL win despite the large FT disparity. GO GRIZZLIES!!
