The Suns are playing well this season, they play tough. Took the Spurs and Thunder to the limit already this season.

Guys, take a good look at Gerald Green (Better Rudy at $3.5mil) and at Eric Bledsoe($2.6mil).
Grizz mission should be to drop Bayless/Prince and get 2 bargain scorers like Green/Bledsoe. Then with Marc/Zach/Conley/Miller the team will get hot again.

Regarding this game, suns Frye/Tucker/Dragic/Green/Bledsoe will rain 3s on Grizz and will advance by 10-12 fast, game will stabilize in second quarter but Suns will hold on to the lead all the way.

If Z-Bo plays they might win. If Z-Bo doesn't play they might win. Either way the Grizz are becoming a very boring team to watch.

I'm not going to go to the game or watch it. The team apathy towards playing hard is taking it's toll.

Much better things to do with my time and money.

Unfortunately, I see this happening too.

I was just going to say that I bet the Forum is pretty empty, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see tickets going for a song on StubHub and Ticketexchange.

Although, most NBA arenas are not exactly overflowing during weeknights unless the Lakers, Heat, or Thunder are involved.

Same.

The adjustments backfired on the FO. They tried to make a cool team, but we don't got the pieces for a cool team, we have the pieces to make a great team and a winning team with a crappy style that works.

2 reasons they won't fire Dave Joerger is:

Number 1: Losing money

Number 2: Pride



Watching more football than basketball lately... It's more fun. Hope LH gets another job away from here and proves he is a great coach.

I expect tonight's effort and performance will be greatly improved over Saturday. Here's hoping the Grizzlies continue to develop their young players and we start to see the impact on the court as well.

Why waste your time and ours posting here then? It's free, but it still takes time. Appears hypocritical to me.

I think it is very possible that the Griz will lose every game on this homestand.

Whose want's to much waste their money on this team or this mediocrity. Levian and group has ruined this franchise.

Yep. Watching Grizz has become as exciting as watching paint dry.

It's free. I can say what I want to post as long, unless censorship is the way you choose to go. I have not used any bad language. I speak my mind. I don't try to be anybody that I'm not. I'm no more than hypocritical than you.

And if I'm wasting your time or anybody's, there is a simple option. IGNORE! And you waste my time with your notion that your sense of what's best for this board is better than anyone else.

You're the one that said you were wasting your time and money, not me. Why keep posting if you have no interest? Spend your time doing something you enjoy. Someone that would continue to voluntarily participate in something they claim they don't enjoy is either a hypocrite, or lying about their interest. Which one are you doing?

Why are you worried about it? If it concerns you, ignore me. Are you really that dumb? Never mind; you obviously are. I don't suffer fools like you. Have a nice life.

Those senior moments are starting to getting to get to you. Maybe you need an mind enema. LOL!

Zach can only give Grizz advantage in the paint and even then Plumlee is like a 6'11" rabbit having been a high-jumper, but Suns relies heavily on 3s and fast cuts to the basket by Dragic, Bledsoe and Goodwin so neither of those can be affected by Zach being there.
If I were the coach I would start TA, Conley, Miller, Kouf and Bayless, then I'd bring in Prince and zach(if available) when Bledsoe and Goodwin rest. Smallball or else.
