We need a win,but I wouldn't take odds for it as Detroit has lost 5 straight and must be salivating for tomorrow . That being said, COME ON ,GRIZZLIES !!!!!!!! WAKE UP AND GET OVER IT !!!!!

The problem in this game, is the way we match up with the backcourt in Detroit. They can actually start Stuckey-Iverson-Hamilton against our team and not have to worry about it on the defensive side. Even is Hamilton struggles, they will just put Prince on Rudy, and we definitely won't get the best of that match-up. They are better at every position, and they want to end that losing streak. Not a pretty picture for the Griz!

The worst part is that teams like the Thunder and the Timberwolves are starting to win games, while we just keep on losing. It would be great to have the worst record and be guaranteed a top-4 draft pick, but it would also show how awful this team really is right now.

I just hope they dont get embarrassed on national television. And i hope OJ Shines in front of America. And put on a show. And people see he is the Rook of the year.

Well, we have the 5th worst record right now, and I don't think we'll outplay TOR or IND for the rest of the season. Teams like MIN or GS might be a different story though.

So, Conley got the start, huh? Was this to boost trade value or to test his mettle?
