The return of Darrell Arthur! Kosta Koufas goes up against his old team. Randy Foye returns and man do I dislike that guy.

This should be an interesting game to watch. I hope the fans turn out to cheer the team on to victory.

At some point I'm sure we'll have Johnson going against Wilson Chandler, in a fierce battle of the neck tattoos.

I am sorry for the Nuggets. The Grizzlies will come up very angry and hungry. This is a big win.

I really liked the combo of JB,MM,& JJ last night in the first half. I don't remember seeing it in the second half but it was fun to watch.

Man me too. Zach passed out of a double team and JB hit a three and made em pay. JJ stole the show in that second quarter

I will keep preaching that. The Zbo we need right now is a playmaker from the post. NOT the carry offense on back as strictly a scorer. What good is drawing double teams if you are going to just shoot into them anyway.
Find the cutters and find the guys spotted up behind the arc. That's the jolt our offense needs not more isolation postUps and midrange jumpers.

The Grizzlies looks energized on the last few games. I can tell they are on the comeback. Gasol is also coming back soon so, watch out for The Angry Bears!!! Go Grizzlies.

I don't have a good feeling about this one, the Nuggets seem like a team that will do us wrong. I'll be tuned in.

Andre Miller this season is shooting 50% from 3 this season (9-18). Way above his career averages.

why wont that guy just freakin retire---jeez, he kills us. You think he is old and slow and we might have an advantage when he is in, but he always just kills us. Normally its him backing down his defender and posting up and making the shot in the paint. I guess now he is a 3 pt sharp shooter. EVERYBODY in the West shoots 3s--EVERYBODY but us

This game would be a solid win (have to beat solid teams at home) but a BAD loss. We have to make up some ground at home.

NOLA spanked DEN pretty good last night. And as far as playing somebody on the 2nd night of a back to back, the Grizzlies have proven that it is of no advantage to them. MEM can lose to a team playing for the 2nd night in a row just as easily if not more easily than a rested team.

MEM has no clue how to step on an opponent and put them away. This season is full of games that MEM has led only to collapse and lose.

DEN will come out ready to play and determined not lose on back to back nights. They know MEM is down. This will be a hard game to win.

Good idea. This also looks like a draft that the Grizzlies could royally screw up.

I agree totally. Zach is extremely important to the team, but he doesnt have to just try to do it all himself. He can be a good passer out of the double team when the others move and get in position.

Tillery pointed out that with 10 min left in the HOU game, MEM led by 10. Of the next 10 MEM shots, Zach took only one. The team went away from at least going through him. They settled for jumpers, blew the lead and it was a dogfight until the end when HOU lived on the FT line.

I am not saying that Zach has to shoot everytime. In fact I think he shouldnt, but he needs to be part of the offense and be allowed to draw the double team. The guys had it going the right way in the 2nd quarter but went away from it in the 2nd half. Sure hope they will stay with it if things are working tonight against DEN.

something tells me we might see a nice helping of those elbow jumpers from DA tonight just to show the FO what they traded away.

Although, based on the records, DA ought to be thanking the FO for trading him to the Nuggets as they are ahead of MEM anyway.
