Wouldn't be surprised to see the Starters all playing 35+mins in this game after a B2B. Joerger says #screwanalytics

So basically another episode of the Grizzlies playing down to the level of their competition coming up. Let's face it. We all know it's coming.

I'm still LIVID. Joerger cost us the game because of his blind stubbornness.

Philly has lost 19 straight games. Obviously they are a bad team. But at some point they are going to end that losing streak. I hope the Grizz are not the one's that end their losing streak.

Maybe, it's just me; but I don't like to play a team that has got to be tired of losing and would like nothing better than to knock a team like the Grizz off.

Yep, call me a worrier. We can not afford to lose this game!

I still remember when the Grizzlies faced the Bobcats 2 seasons ago who were on a long losing streak and they jumped out to a 17-4 lead on the Grizzlies and had a double digit lead on the Grizzlies in the 2nd half. The Grizzlies main guys played so horribly that Lionel benched Gasol, Randolph, Rudy, and Allen in the 4th quarter. When the 7-59 Bobcats dominates you to the point where you're forced you to bench most of your main guys that when you know you suck. I also remember when Cleveland was on their long losing streak and had a double digit lead on the Grizzlies homecourt 3 seasons ago. I hate it when the Grizzlies have to play horrible competition.

On paper, this should be one of few times where the Grizzlies' "Leaving Everyone Open And Pray That They Miss Their 3s" defense could be an advantage considering that the only player who shoots over 35% from 3 is Byron Mullens shockingly enough. They have 3 other players who shoot in the low 30s (Hollis Thompson -34.5%, James Anderson -32.7%, Eric Maynor -32.4%). Everybody else is under 30% from 3. The Sixers as a team shoots 30.6% from the 3 point line.

Maybe it's just me, but this is the kind of game that scares the poop outta me.

And the sad thing is, it really shouldn't...

You guys all have the same idea I have. How many teams have broke their losing streaks against us this year? If I was in Vegas, I would place a bet on Philly + the points. Having said that, I expect us to win...but I would still place that Vegas bet, because I think it will be kind of close.

Another day, another dollar.

I'll put yesterday behind me, and I hope the Grizz boys and Dave do as well.
Need to concentrate for the full 48MINS, and ensure a victory, with play we all know they are capable of.

Go Grizz!

How can we win, when the great Tony Wroten is on the other team?
