Denver up by about 30 points on new orleans with 7 minutes left in the game.

Faried set a new career high of 34 points and also has 13 rebounds.

Does the Grizz even want this season? Heck, I will be happy if we even make the playoffs at this rate I fell asleep during last game (thankfully) so I didn't get to see the end but I will say this. Why does this team want to try anymore? Nowadays it's just 5 people on the court just struggling to get 2 points every 6 minutes it seems. I'm always for the Grizzlies but AT LEAST throw some effort into your games!

Still having a hard time believing how awful Z-Bo and Conley played last night in a game that was really important to win at this point in the season and considering that both Dallas and Phoenix are neck and neck with us in the standings.

Actually, the team as a whole looked nothing like a team that KNEW they had to lay it all out if they wanted to show they are playoff worthy.

The Grizz have really been struggling these last 5 games. They better get their act together when they play Denver Friday night. If they don't, the Denver game will be a loss.

It's either going to be (DO IT!) time, or doo doo time. The playoff window space is narrow. The Fat Lady is waiting behind the curtain to sing her final song for somebody.

PS: The Nuggets were obviously free wheeling and playing let er' fly basketball with their 137-107 victory v/s NOLA last night. They shot(52 of92)(56%),and made 15 of 27(3 pointers)(56.5%)

So we might want to guard both inside and outside the arc.

Grizzlies will likely come out flat again like they have been doing all year long. Joeger said the team was tired last night due to being on a long road trip, so I would think they will still be tired tomorrow.

Several? I could make a list that would need most all the digits on my hands AND feet to count.

Weak excuse when you have a roster that is 12 quality players deep. Anyone with eyeballs could see Starters were a step slow and reserves could hang.

Let's hope he manages rotations better in this game because this is officially a MUST win.

Am I the only one who thinks we're going to beat a team that loses 2 out of every 3 games away from home? We've only lost 3 games at the Forum in 2014 and the last one was on Feb 5.
