We are right back on track, it's weird to think about but if we win on Saturday, we're doing better than we did last year. We were down 3-1 after the first four last year. I want to head back to LA 2-2 with all the pressure on the Floppers. I really liked our game plan in game 3, very effective. Clippers barely hit 80 for the game, this is the effort it's going to take each game. A couple threes throughout the game dont hurt either. Get after em Grizz

Keep the momentum going into Game 4. One game at a time. Zach needs to stay hot, Mike will have a better game, but then again so will CP3. We just have to focus on our game, just like we did tonight. Points in the paint, rebounds, defense, physical play. Get it in to Marc and Zach when they're in the spots, don't just give it to them whenever and expect them to score. Mike done a great job of getting them the ball in their spots (10 assists). Hollins done a much beter job with the matchups Game 3. Keep the grind going!

I know ZBO had the big game but Tony Allen is working so hard giving us all he has that it makes me believe.

Watching QPON guard CP3 was pretty interesting. Definately putting a big body on him.
Game 3 is going to be all about effort. If the Grizz bring it we should be good.

It started in Game 2 and it was perfected in game 3; Aggressiveness. Attack attack attack. Get them in foul trouble, get to the line, fight for every rebound. Game 4 should be no different. Hope Mike feels better and ZBo reactivates his beast mode. Grizz in 6

Chris Paul is going to decide his legacy with the remaining games starting Saturday. If yet again he folds under pressure and blows a series he's going to take a HUGE hit to his reputation. I mean for him to attempt 4 shots the first half, have more turnovers than assists and finish with just 8 points on 30 percent shooting? Pretty fail on his part. I don't see game 4 going the same way at all after the Clippers got punched in the mouths but if it somehow does, Memphis will obviously have all momentum with the pressure on the Clippers to hold them off.

I always remember Chris Paul and the Hornets taking the Spurs to game 7 in 2008 in the 2nd round of playoffs. That was awesome. But he hasn't gotten back there in a long time. I like to see whoever wins this series go all the way this year!

Good lord please give CP3 to us since you think he is such a choker.

He was a little shaky, but Memphis changed their strategy and paid a little more attention to him. He saw several bodies, Conley, TA, QPon, Dooling. I mean it only took like 12 out of 16 games lost to finally make an adjustment but I guess Lionel finally caught on.

Of course the Clippers had NOTHING to do with the Grizzlies and the way they played/slowed Paul down. :rolleyes:

Give me a break.

Thursdays win was very needed. Saturdays is a must.

Need to really put some pressure on the Clippers. If the Grizz can win Saturday they will win in L.A. in game 5.

Thursday was the one we REALLY needed, no one has ever come back from 3-0

Gotta come out hungry. I hate these early games, seems like the Grizzlies don't play as well in the day time. Our game 7 last season was early too. Anyway, I don't think it really has an effect on the players, more just me finding things to worry about.

Hopefully we can contain Paul again as he's going to impose his will and probably try to foul out the entire Grizz starting lineup in the first quarter. It's imperative that Zach and Marc stay out of early foul trouble as this was Zach's downfall in the first 2 games. Go Grizzlies!!

A few years ago, the Hornets got knocked out of the playoffs by - I forget which team - that put our old friend Dahntay Jones on CP3. He just dominated him physically. Maybe that's the plan with QPon. Either way, CP3 is going to come out looking to dominate, so Mike Conley needs to come out attacking first. If he waits for CP3 to "throw the first punch" he's going to be backpedalling and get into foul trouble. He can't do that; we need him to have a big game.
