Prediction

- 106
- 101




Outside of upsetting the Mavs last week, the Grizz have been playing some uninspired basketball. Still doesn't mean we take them lightly because we know all too well how we play against weaker opponents. The key obviously is to shut down Mayo and Gay. If we can't do either then this game will be a close one.

Still don't know the status of both Jose and JO, so for the meantime I'm leaving things be with the starting line-up or until I hear otherwise. Congrats to Jamario and his wife for having a baby girl. Moon expected to be back at the ACC on Friday night.

Predict and discuss guys.

Close down the lane as usual and make Mayo and Gay shoot contested 3s.

Don't let their bigs outhustle us down low.

We should win this one handily as long we don't cough it up 20 times like last night.

Raps - 110

Grizz - 92

If Mayo is on fire we are on trouble. Bargs NEEDS to take advantage of the slower Gasol.

Gasol will have a lot of trouble guarding bargs
Bosh will take it to Gay
...
my only concern is either rudy or oj exposing our weak perimeter D and taking over the game

Raps win a close one as the gay guy breaks out and has a huge game.

I heard that its possible that Caldy and O'Neal could play.

But I don't know if Triano would risk it when they're playing the Grizz

Eh why risk it when they can rest for a few more days and be fresh for the Celts.

Raps are going to take this one.

I'm really looking forward to watching Mayo play, I've only seen him a bit on league pass cuz its hard watching the Grizzlies, so I'm interested in what kind of player he is and who he plays like.

Thisll be a really good test for our perimeter defence with those two and how much our help defence has improved. Obviously Sunday is the big test with Pierce and Rondo, but tomorrow will be a good entree.

man, watching memphis play brings back memories of the vancouver grizzlies.
Rudy Gay was the Shareef and Conley was the Bibby.

I'm really afraid (again). They're playing very well lately, and usually stay close until the very end in most games, including against top teams. We are probably having a great feeling about ourselves (as we usually do after 2-3 wins) and we're not going to treat this game as we should. If we come out flat and they come out on fire, it could be a disaster. We really really have to win this game.
