Please don't start Miller and please don't get off to a slow start. Hopefully the guys caught some momentum that last game and come out hungry and ready to ball

I think Courtney Lee will start this game... Coach just didn't want to throw him in a starter on 1st day. I hope he stays a starter but probably won't once TA comes back.

Hey guys! We play the Suns in two days, but tonight is the Celtics aka JBay.

Don't watch it!!! They are the worst team and should be obliterated! I'm only watching if for JBay and you can too, just know it's going to be long and painful.

For the love of gawd we should never tank. It's the worst thing I've ever witnessed. Bayless looked like he was at a loss for words after the game at how AWFUL they were. The 16 year old head coach was at a lost for words!! When they asked "did you see any positives?" He just stared into space for like 8 seconds and then said, "yeah, individuals. I thought bayless tried all that he could do...( being at how dreadful the team is and there was no hope)"

The grizzlies should never tank. It's beyond depressing.

The funny thing is, they are trying to tank but only one game out the playoffs. The East is so bad tanking teams are in the playoffs and teams that wasn't to win are out of it.

5 out of next 6 at home ( dont know if that is a good thing or bad thing this year) and the one road game is in MIL. Grizz have got to make a move and get over 1 or 2 of the teams ahead of them. No more room for moral victories. Got to start with this game.

What scares me about this game is that it is at home for starters and we will be going for a 3rd straight win over the Suns. That is just hard to do. Sooner or later you would think PHO would beat us once. Got to hope it isnt tomorrow night.

Yeah, the Bulls just about went full tank mode. The Sixers don't know what they want to do. I think the Celtics are waiting things out.

Does anyone have an injury report on Marc and/or Pondexter?
Pheonix looks like a very winnable team for us.Looking at their roster I cant really see how they are doing so well. They seem to have a prolific offence so if we slow it down like we always try then we should be able to come out with a W. I believe that we will have a winsteak after the game agains the spurs. The team looked like it was finally starting to play like a playoff team should.

Pondexter is out for the season. Marc is just guessing, anywhere from a couple of weeks to a month would be my guess.

not able to watch YouTube clips at work. Work computer firewall blocks it. Can somebody give me a synopsis of what Marc is doing at practice these days? Is he working with the team or is he off doing his own thing while the rest of the team works together?
