I am starting to think teams start getting geared up to play their best ball right before they play the Grizzlies.

Either that or they break their losing streak against the Grizzlies. The Grizz can take the Bulls, hopefully they will do the same with the Nets.

I think their record is something like 20-9 when Kirilenko plays.

This is a very good team that is playing well right now. Like the Grizzlies, the overall record is deceiving for how good they are at full strength.

Wouldn't mind seeing Garnett on the bench again tonight.

What happened to all the teams in the East being weak? Every last one of them seem to be a handful for us.

Has Paul Pierce been playing PF for them all year? That's going to be a tough match up for Zach defensively. Zach isn;t comfortable guarding outside the lane. That being said Zach should be able to post up Pierce all night.

JJ would be great for this match up, but watch those pump fakes!! Pierce will get JJ fouled out in one quarter

Yeah, a Conley, Lee, Allen, Johnson, Gasol line up would be interesting to see here.

It looks like the East is turning it on. I think the Eastern teams are finally coming together (or something). The Heat and Pacers are still the only elite teams in the East, but there seem to be more 'solid' teams in the East this year.

It doesn't hurt that the Eastern teams have gotten their confidence up playing other Eastern Conference teams and are upsetting a few Western Conference teams that are tired from playing tougher competition every night and looking past these teams.

This should be a good one. But I think our guys are ready after that win in Wash.

Yep, since Brook went down. Brooklyn's most-used lineup this year is Livingston/Johnson/Anderson/Pierce/Garnett (sub Anderson for Deron, for the most-used since his return).

It means Marc needs to get aggressive, he can't let Paul Pierce defend him.

Well, we better win this. It seems we can't expect to get any help moving up in the playoff standings. The only way to do it is to help ourselves. Go Grizzlies!

If they are playing Pierce at the 4, we gonna need to punish them inside to win.

Marc's gotta be aggressive offensively and also gobble up rebounds. We have to dominate the rebounding with the small line-up they have.

Johnson can really hurt us so I hope JJ is ready to go and T.A can bring his continued good play.

Yeah, I hope our Johnson is better than theirs.
