    Can this NBA season be saved?

    I'm not sure how much resting teams are going to do, with only 8 games as a warmup for the playoffs. They're coming off what will be 4 months off too, so I would guess teams will be hesitant to sit guys.

    translation on "more competitive formats": Dame probably wanted a tournament.

    ZION INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT (ZIT)

    It's a relatively good outcome for Memphis, if they are indeed set on doing the play-in this way. We are already 3.5 up, if we finish 4 or more ahead, the 8th is ours regardless. Schedule was tough for us to close and easy for everyone else, now those teams will have to play nothing but playoff teams as well so it balances out more. Also if we are the 8th team and don't finish 4 ahead, we play the 9th seed but have to lose 2 times, vs only once for the 9th place team. About as good of an outcome as Memphis could expect, based on the modified end of the season.

    Memphis Grizzlies @ Atlanta Hawks - 3/2/20

    Atlanta is the 2 pt favorite for a reason. They're 5-5 in their last 10, coming off 2 straight wins and at home.

    Memphis Grizzlies @ Sacramento Kings 2/20/20

    Sacramento is a 1 or 2 pt favorite. I know we're on the road, but that is a bit surprising to me.

    NBA Rising Stars Game

    They definitely need to tweak it so that it doesn't end on FT's. Can't believe that wasn't already in there.

    The overly optimistic, highly unlikely 19-20 playoff thread

    also, some encouragement for the doubters:

    The overly optimistic, highly unlikely 19-20 playoff thread

    If Grizz just finish out playing 14-14 .500 ball, that puts them at 42-40 Just to tie us and hope to have the tiebreaker: Portland must go 17-9 NOLA must go 19-8 Spurs must go 19-9 And that's only if we play at .500, if we steal a game or two we are not supposed to, that makes it close to impossible for those 3 teams to catch us. NOLA is 7-5 since Zion came back, which is only a 58% winning clip, whereas if we go 14-14 they would need to bump that up to a 70% rate. If we play 1 game over .500 that means they need to win at a 74% rate. Even with Zion there hasn't been much proof (yet) they will be able to do that. Even WITH Dame, Portland has lost 4 of their last 6 as well.

    He may be back, but they miss Dwight Powell a lot more than anyone thought they would.

    that's one of their forecast models. The other forecast model on that site has us with a 37% chance, finishing a game behind Portland in 9th. That's probably much more realistic right now.

    I will just leave this here, in response to ESPN claiming we hurt our playoff chances this year

    Grizzlies trading James Johnson for Gorgui Dieng

    That's exactly it. Now we aren't forced to go small, which often times leads to foul problems, and things tend to snowball down low.
