+1

I will probably miss it. Already loose my night and my study for today. And man how much I have to study now... once again by Grizzlies for a while. I will comeback as soon as I can...

It will probably take I while but I hope when I get back things are better for me and the team.

I will just enjoy the game for what it is. I hope this team makes the right changes next year. TP is not even getting half the points Rudy would get in the playoffs. I like ZBO a lot but I really think they should have moved him as well.

Grizz wouldn't be the first team to get down 2-0 and come back and win a series.

But they can't get down 3-0. Let's hope this series goes at least 6 games.

Lets hope the guys can hit free throws.... otherwise, the next threads going around here will be "What will the team do in the offseason"

I'll be out of town, but will definitely catch the game on TNT. Hoping to not be disappointed again.....

Game two's effort gives me hope for a war in game three and four. We are home and I hope we pack the Grindhouse. Lets get this thing tied up!! Starts with a win Thursday night.

Let's hope for the best. Teams winning the 1st 2 games of a 7 game set usually win the entire series about 94% of the time. We need to take it 1 game at a time. And with some energy from ZBO.

In all reality, we HAVE to win these next two games to have a chance at the series. There's no more room for error when battling this Clippers team.

We can win the next two and make a comeback in the series. Is it a sell out? I live in California so I'm hearing the hate from clippers fans. We better win this so I can have bragging rights. We have to hit free throws an contain Chris Paul, Eric Bledsoe, and Jamal Crawford. Gasol must stay in the paint the whole game. Jordan can only dunk and that's it so there should be no reason for gasol to move out of the paint. Hollins better play Davis.

Marc. You are back home man. You can stop fading away from the basket/contact. You are the man defensively. Keep bringing it offensively cuz your brother from another mother is getting raped by Blake.

As will I. I have my two seats, I bought my brother two seats and I am trying to sell two more. Man I really hope the fans of this team pack the house. Especially on the late Thursday game. Sell it out Memphis. I'm doing my part.

Obviously game 3 is huge. If we win it, I say we win game 4 as well. But if we lose I see a sweep coming. Its all about their mindset. Are they coming out ****** off with an edge or are they going to come out feeling sorry for themselves.

I think it's over, unfortunately. But let's win a couple and save some face. The Griz just can't compete with their bench.

Slight digression...But how about some hard Playoff fouls when these punks get open lanes to the basket?

I can think of several times last night when Bledsoe, Barnes, etc got back door cuts or other open lanes and Zbo, Marc, et al literally just stood there passively and let them finish with emphatic, deflating dunks. Don't injure anyone, but foul them HARD and at least make them hit the foul shots and, more importantly, think about it the next time they go for that dunk!

Remember what happened to DA in that Orlando game a couple of months ago? If Al Harrington can play like that for the Magic in a meaningless regular season game, why can't our guys play with that kind of fire against the Clips now?! FIGHT, D@%#IT! This is about pride as much as anything from this point on!

Seems crazy to say now, but his actual Brother would've been more help in this series. (Pau had 16pts 16rebs 6ast against Spurs)
