Interesting that the Grizzlies are playing well the last several games to win 4 in a row. Remember when Ja was hurt early in the season, and, the Grizzlies ended up having a winning streak. It's time to start thinking, will JJJ upset this team chemistry when he gets back on the court.

This game will test the Grizzlies, to see if they can continue their streak.  Don't count Knicks out.  

Go Grizz!!

We didn't miss anything, because Knox is terrible.

But, you will have to look really close, because Thibs has only played Knox for 5 minutes total in the last 6 games. He is out of the rotation. https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/k/knoxke01/gamelog/2021

I would bet on you being a superstar before Knox. He sucks.

Would probably be a good bet. I’m closer to fringe all star if I’m being honest with myself

Knicks 1-5 in their last 6. And apparently Julius Randle is slumping. https://nypost.com/2021/04/08/julius-randles-knicks-slump-has-come-at-the-worst-time/?utm_medium=SocialFlow&utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=NYPTwitter

"Randle is shooting 40.4 percent from the floor over his last seven games and just 31.1 percent (14-for-45) from beyond the arc after connecting on a career-best 42.8 percent on 3-point attempts in his first 44 appearances."

Well, he does lead the league in minutes played, so he is probably starting to get tired.  Thibs is known for running his best players into the ground.

And RJ Barret is 3rd. Noel has filled in ok, but Knicks are missing Mitchell Robinson. Robinson coincidentally broke his foot 7 games ago. 

3 Kings are 4-6 in minutes played. Apparently Luke Walton doesn't believe in load management either.

Clumsy Dwight Howard might have hurt DeAnthony’s leg worse than we feared. 
 

 

I hope Clarke play it because we will need him badly. NY is totally different than they used to be lately and if we want to win tonight we better play hard for 48 min. 

This game will be really important, if we want to make the Playoffs this is the type of games you havs to win, and we actually have a chance to fight for the 6th seed, we will face Dallas and Blazers in the next week or the one after.

Kind of trap game... NY is not bad and we still have so many injured player. Hope Dilon, Grayson keep playing as good as they currently play. Won't even talk about JV who will go for another double-double ...

True, they have been awful lately, reeling off losses. That’s why the Grizzlies have to take advantage and try to win tonight’s matchup

Their interior defense has actually been one of their biggest strengths. I saw a post on reddit yesterday commenting that Nerlens Noel has been one of the best defensive bigs in the league this year in NY. 

JV is a monster and should still get his, but we'll definitely be relying on some outside shooting again to win this one. Trap game for sure.

Trap game from a mile away. Extremely worried and scared. Every time the Grizzly are favored to win a game they lose ON PURPOSE!
