First to say, must win.

Put the nail in the Timberwolves coffin.

Also, not sure if others are watching Timberwolves games at all, but that Dieng who has been playing center for the T'Wolves is very impressive.

Hope he is much less impressive on Monday.

This game scares me.

And Adelman looks like he wasn't ready for the picture to be taken

I keep saying that Love and Pekovic are a horrible combination. Both are great offensive players who don't play a lick of defense. Plug a defensive center like Dieng in the lineup and suddenly they stiffen up.

Today I shall cheer for the T'Wolves to deliver a win against the Suns.

This is a big 48 hours for their very tiny playoff hopes.

Timberwolves did us no favors. They lost to Phoenix tonight. Phoenix just refuses to lose. I'm starting to really dislike the Suns. Still hard for me to believe that they would be this good this season.

The Grizz have to keep winning. Phoenix keeps winning their road games. And the Grizz have to go to their place April 14th for the 2nd game of a back to back.

TWolves are not playing for anything but pride. That makes them dangerous but if you start quick they should quit fighting early.

We are only 1/2 ahead of the Suns, and tied w/ Mavs...

Warriors about about to be right in the mix for the 9th seed. We need this W!

I'm thinking/hoping that the T-Wolves loss against the Suns took the wind out of their sails. If the Grizzlies get an early lead there shouldn't be too much fight left in these guys.
Beno will get some playing time tonight. :)

I saw Gorgui Dieng on TV yesterday. Forgot all about him. The TWolves are sorry.

On paper, they look like they could give us serious trouble. Rubio and Kevin Martin with Corey Brewer, Kevin Love, and Dieng on the inside.

Anyone surprised that the Grizz are only favored by 2 points? I'm surprised. Grizz are at home with a full days rest.

I mean the Wolves just played last night and were in a high scoring run and gun game last night. Shouldn't they be a bit leg weary on a back to back. Vegas must know something I don't. I would have said at least 4 to 5 points. Their record is 34-34. Grizz are 41-28.

Now I'm worried again . Already sweating. This season has aged me 10 years, and I'm already ancient!

I'm here in San Diego, and my son in Collierville called me earlier and told me that the Memphis Commercial Appeal's Sports Section had Grizz only favored by 2. I guess I should have checked my newspaper out here.

Haven't had a chance to read ours yet. Been to busy with other fun things.

Well, he and Brewer seemed to have a competition yesterday to see who could screw more plays in the 4th. I'd swear there was a 5 minute stretch in which they took turns turning over the ball and launching airballs with no opposition. Let's hope their trend continues.
