    conley and foul calls

    Unless I'm at the Forum, I watch all games now on DVR. Besides the reviews and commercials, the 25 trips to the free throw line drive me insane to watch live. Plus, on those periodic games when the Grizzlies get down 12-15 and the lead starts expanding to 20, having FF to see if the team gets back into it keeps me from wasting my time.

    Conley Is Going To The ASG

    In watching him tonight, I really want him to make it for the recognition he's earned, but I also want him to stay home so that his body can rest.
  3. Just glad it wasn't a Wade Baldwin revenge game.
  4. Blazers just lost to the Rockets. Hopefully there is a little fatigue in them tomorrow. Aminu played 37 minutes, and Lillard and McCollum played 39.

    conley and foul calls

    I would not have guessed those stats the Father posted. I always felt like ZBo would get the shaft on foul calls because of his limited jumping ability and the fact that 3 point shooters can't be touched but refs let them play maul ball underneath. But I guess, I'm also wearing Beale Street Blue colored classes when I watch as well.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Denver Nuggets -12/10/18

    Well, they did send him home after the Nuggets game.

    The Grizzlies should trade for John Wall

    Until the 1st round pick conveys to the Celtics, the Grizzlies aren't able to trade any of the 2019, 20, 21 or probably 22 first rounders as the pick could be any of the next 3 years, and they aren't able to trade consecutive years first round picks.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Denver Nuggets -12/10/18

    The 2020 1st round pick can't be traded because that could still be Boston's pick which eliminates the possibility of trading the 2021 pick because consecutive draft picks can't be traded (and the 2021 1st round pick also can't be traded as that could end up being Boston's pick).

    Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Lakers - 12/8/18

    As bad as this was, I'll take the Pelicans/Lakers split. It would have been nice to have been competitive, but this isn't out of character for most NBA teams to have a crappy game.

    Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Lakers - 12/8/18

    I think other teams are going to duplicate what the Lakers do. They better start making baskets or this will be a very common defensive game plan

    Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Lakers - 12/8/18

    Got them right where they want them. Down 23. Time to start playing defense.

    Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Lakers - 12/8/18

    The game hasn't even started yet and Ed Malloy has already whistled JJJ for 2 fouls. I'm expecting that type of treatment tonight.

    Playoff watch - how many wins do you think it will take

    I don't disagree with anything you're saying, but I want to point out that OKC has yet to play many divisional games. Right now, they've only played one and so they have 15 games remaining in the toughest division in basketball (it pains me to now say the Northwest is the toughest division in basketball, but it's true). Given how tight the West is, they are like the rest of the West (minus Suns and Warriors) as a non-gimme to make the playoffs. Although, injuries are going to play a big role.
  14. After 20 games, the team sits 12-8. Playing .500 ball the remainder of the season gets them to 43-39. That is almost equal to the win % for 8th place right now. A- Does 43 wins get a team into the West in the playoffs? If not, how many wins will the 8th place team have? B- If the season ended today, these 8 teams would make the playoffs. A) Clippers, Warriors, Nuggets, Thunder, Blazers, Grizzlies, Lakers, Mavs are in. B ) Timberwolves, Pelicans, Kings, Spurs, Jazz, and Rockets are out but borderline. Suns are basically eliminated. Predict what team(s) not in the top 8, and who in the top 8 won't be there in the end? Basically, for each team you add from line B, remove a team from line A.

    Grizzlies at New Orleans - 12/7/18

    In his defense, it is Saturday in Tokyo right now. He's so far ahead of us, he probably already knows the outcome of Friday night's Pelicans game.

    Seattle Gets NHL Franchise

    It's really not a big deal IMO, but I was never one to play the role of hall monitor.

    I'm more of a Ricky Davis man myself.

    Playoff watch - how many wins do you think it will take

    After the Clippers win, the 538 projection jumped to 44% on probability and they must have forecast a Clippers victory as the projected record climbed to 43-39, and 11th in the West.

    Seattle Gets NHL Franchise

    It doesn't need to be moved, although it could have been put in one of the other threads that talks about Seattle that are on this board: Seattle updates arena to attract NBA/NHL teams Seattle and expansion https://boards.grizzliesonline.com/topic/20632-grizz-to-seattle/
  20. Looking ahead, the elsewhere mentioned month of Febrarpril could be a trial as well.

    Welcome Joakim Noah!

    Good addition. I think all 4 bigs will play a role throughout the season, especially when the injury big hits. This might be a good time to reassign Rabb to the Hustle for some games.

    The Grizzlies should trade for John Wall

    He is, at best, a 1x All-Star in the West, and that's a lot of money to pay for that long. However, if they want to take Parsons and fluff, I'm fine.

    Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Clippers - 12/5/18

    Prediction: The teams will be within 4 points of each other with less than 3 minutes to play. If Grizzlies avoid foul trouble and make baskets down the stretch, they win. Edited to add: Given the placing of the 2 teams within the divisional race, this is the standard must win game comment.

    Welcome Joakim Noah!

    So will the free agent signing soon go down with an injury too?

    Record Comparison

    Yes, I agree, the columns like SixthMan used to do will be a nice touch.
