GRIZZ (44-20) V Jazz(33-32) Saturday 3/16/13

NBA TV 9:00 pm CDT
FM 92.9
AM 680


Hold onto your seats,..it's going to be a wild ride in the next week and a half.
First up Tuesday night March 12 are the Trailblazers and I'm pretty sure they'd like to start my Grizz off with a loss, but I'm thinking the retooled Grizz are starting to figure themselves out in spite of having 2 big men down.......maybe it wasn't such a terrible thing as Big Ed Davis is looking confident with his extra PT.
Got ZBo back and he looks great. Ed gave us some good minutes again and ZBo should be good to go again tomorrow. Hope we get Darrell back but damn!!! We are playing some great ball. Let's go clip the Clips !!
Next up are the Nuggets who are playing red hot right now, and it's time for a cool down. I know the odds are stacked against us, but this team will not back down. So get on out there GRIZZ fans in heart and soul and send them some Memphis love to get this job done. And thank you bookies for the line, WE ALWAYS PLAY BETTER AS UNDERDOGS !!!
And the LAST ONE..............for awhile.......against the Utah Jazz who are favored.......yeah right. Bookies have NEVER known how to predict this team. Do YOU think they'll be tired and demoralized?? I don't. But I also respect the Jazz and know they can win it outright.
SO !!! One more time
LET'S DO IT, GRIZZ !!!!!! WIN !! WIN !! WIN !!!!!!!!!

Huge stretch to test us! I feel 3-1 record will be sufficient. However, with da and z-Bo coming back, 4-0 is very possible!

mzgrizz
03-10-2013, 11:40 PM
I won't be greedy........I'll take 2 of 4 even............with Ws over the usual suspects

MrfadeawayJB
03-11-2013, 04:16 PM
Didn't realize we had Denver and lac...if we beat one of them ill be happy

MrfadeawayJB

Blazers looking for revenge...

MrfadeawayJB
03-12-2013, 11:10 PM
Physical first half. Need to gut this one out, we are playing well enough to win out there

mzgrizz
03-12-2013, 11:47 PM
Agree. Lots of bodies hitting the deck. Letting them play for the most part.
Getting a little lazy at the end of the 3rd

mzgrizz
03-12-2013, 11:49 PM
Come on Grizz. Get down and grind this one out

mzgrizz
03-12-2013, 11:51 PM
Nice series right there

RipCity32
03-12-2013, 11:51 PM
What's your guys record since the Rudy trade?It seems like I'm always seeing Ws from you guys whenever I do check in on the box scores.

mzgrizz
03-12-2013, 11:58 PM
Think it's 13-4 or better. Definitely the trade had worked for us. Back to feeding the big boys and basic basketball.
Except when Bayless goes boneheaded on us

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 12:00 AM
Or Ed getting a tech for crap. Needs to get that hot head under control. Gimme a big Gasol right now Lionel.

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 12:02 AM
Down to 6. Crud.
Except Jared might be microwaving

Hey guests. Glad you are here but we'd love for you to sign in and contribute!! Pretty nice small group who post here.

Ed is really showing me something tonight

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 12:08 AM
Need to close out strong and get this win guys!

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 12:10 AM
Ed Davis is REALLY coming on
Need to tighten this one up

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 12:12 AM
Crap. Over the limit. Lionel needs to try and win this in spite of trying to rest ZBo. We need this W

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 12:14 AM
Good time out.
Regroup.
Don't let them think they will steal it from us now.

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 12:15 AM
Need zbo and tony back in to close it out

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 12:19 AM
Huge block!!!

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 12:22 AM
Prince and Conley have struggled scoring but make timely baskets

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 12:27 AM
Missed ft's killing us

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 12:33 AM
Not the best close out but a win is a win

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 12:35 AM
Bayless make up for your boneheaded mistakes

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 12:40 AM
Alrighty then !!! Nice W in the Rose Garden. Remember when we couldn't buy a victory there!!
Damn we got a good team. !!!!!

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 01:07 AM
Oh yeah. Ed will pay off for quite a long while. He needs to PRACTICE free throws instead of free throes lol

Cracka2HI!
03-13-2013, 05:01 PM
Hey friends! I'll be at the game tongiht. Obviously I'll be rooting against you guys ;)

Sounds like a good time! Surprised Espn didn't pick up this game, it's become quite a rivalry

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 09:45 PM
Hey friends! I'll be at the game tongiht. Obviously I'll be rooting against you guys ;)

Surely !!! Glad you're getting to go. I missed the gawdawful Clips game here in January when we got stuck on the icy interstate for over 2 hours!!!
And of course, GO GRIZZ !!!! It'll be a miracle if we can contain your guys tonight.

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 10:52 PM
Congrats on 10k Tay! Starting off hot

RipCity32
03-13-2013, 11:04 PM
Good to see my man Prince finally shooting the ball well again.

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 11:08 PM
Damn 3G network. Can't follow it. I'll have to go back to NBA lite.
Besides these Clippers' announcers are pretty bad.

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 11:21 PM
We are playing well so far. Hopefully our legs don't leave on a second night of a back to back

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 11:21 PM
Damn. NBA radio no better with those announcers. In fact they are worse.
Grizz need some ref love. Every few seconds they are proving that Clips fan wrong. Do believe they get the beauty calls

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 11:35 PM
Idiot says Marc had no style points on his dunk. Cretin.
Guess they wanted sparkly stuff

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 11:36 PM
Wish I could see this ****.

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 11:38 PM
I can dream we can win this one.

mzgrizz
03-13-2013, 11:41 PM
That crowd sounds flat. I keep thinking this radio announcer is going to say " swing batter". Lol. Sounds like a baseball dude.

MrfadeawayJB
03-13-2013, 11:56 PM
Need to build a lead cause i dont have a feeling the ft disparity may soon change. Not in our favor

mzgrizz
03-14-2013, 12:02 AM
Come on Grizz !!!

MrfadeawayJB
03-14-2013, 12:16 AM
Games getting chippy...and i love it!

mzgrizz
03-14-2013, 12:30 AM
Come on Grizz !!! Wouldn't it be great ???

mzgrizz
03-14-2013, 12:37 AM
Hang in there Grizz !!!!

MrfadeawayJB
03-14-2013, 12:38 AM
We almost got this one...just need to finish strong. I can feel the refs turning the home teams way once paul and griffin come back in. Need to execute and play smart to close out! Hey we get a day off after this guys!!!

mzgrizz
03-14-2013, 12:43 AM
And here come the phantom calls

mzgrizz
03-14-2013, 12:44 AM
Come on Grizz !!!! Come on Grizz !!!! Come on Grizz !!!!!

MrfadeawayJB
03-14-2013, 01:00 AM
Great and Gritty win on a night where the guys could have easily packed it in. I love how this team never settles for bad shots. That was common place when Rudy was here, but now the leadership is in the right peoples hands. Very business-like attitude from our guys. On to the next one!

mzgrizz
03-14-2013, 01:00 AM
HUGE win !! Wowowowow!!!!
Now for a days rest and get braced for the Nuggs.

mzgrizz
03-14-2013, 01:41 AM
Actually they need to leave for Denver tonight!!! Get used to that mile high city. Are you listening Lionel ??

RipCity32
03-14-2013, 01:55 AM
Good job there fellas.Goes to show your guys success has always come from those bigs you have and being defensive minded.

You got it Rip! Glad the new owners had the balls to make what seemed an unpopular trade ! The naysayers are quiet now. And what a fit Tay has been !!!

Cracka2HI!
03-14-2013, 06:33 PM
Really good win for you guys. You guys didn't even play that good of a game and beat us easily. I was pretty crushed by the loss. Not really that we lost, but how. I wanted to see a great game, not that. I do want to share a nice story with you guys. I was sitting next to a family in town on vaction from Memphis. I was sitting next to their oldest kid who was high school age. They were a black family and the kid totally looked like a thug. Had a Z-Bo jersey and kinda looked like him. He was talking a little trash but the type of trash that should be talked at a sporting event. I ended up talking with him and he was one the nicest most well manered kinds I've met in a long time. The whole family was just a joy to sit next too. Memphis was represtend well by that family!

Great story, Cracka.........and I felt your pain last night. It's always such a letdown when you get pumped for a game and then it deflates you. I am personally amazed that the Grizz won in the way they did. This incarnation of the Grizz are pretty damn good as are the Clips, Nuggs, Spurs and Thunder! It will be a wild ride to the WCF !

Cracka2HI!
03-14-2013, 11:48 PM
That's for sure but I'd rather be where your teams at right now. We look like the 5 seed right now. That's going to be a tough road. There isn't much time to turn it around! You guys are tough, I'm surprised the trade ended up turning out so well!

03-15-2013, 02:38 AM
how come there aren't more grizzly pro sports fans?? With this great team its a shame there isn't much of a talk here. Come to the nuggs forum to chat during the games guys! Always is fun when we play you guys. Always competitive. Can't wait.

MrfadeawayJB
03-15-2013, 12:36 PM

Sounds cool to me. You guys have always had the classiest forum.
Our Memphis fans are isolationists and do a heavy trade in the local team sponsored forum. They really miss out IMO

Argh!!!! League pass just went out to "technical difficulties" !!!!

MrfadeawayJB
03-15-2013, 09:50 PM
This game is Memphis style so far. Grizz just need the offense too click

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:01 PM
3 on Faried. Might just might have a chance here. To be honest , I already figured the long road trip would take a toll in Denver. But there's still a slim chance they'll get enough legs to do this.

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:03 PM
Back to 3 down. Make that 5 after chandlers dunk. Come on Grizz !!!!

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:04 PM
GREAT play!!!! Keep on Grizz !!!

MrfadeawayJB
03-15-2013, 10:08 PM
Grizz are playing well enough to win this game. Defense needs to tighten up in the second half though

MrfadeawayJB
03-15-2013, 10:37 PM
Expand the lead guys!

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:40 PM
Come on Grizz !!! Nuggs are stunned right now

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:41 PM
I'll settle for swapping buckets

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:42 PM
Now Jared. Smart shots please

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:45 PM
The Nuggs announcers are funny. They just said " they actually believe they are going to win this game "
Really??? Really? We are now 8 points up and we THINK we are going to win?

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:50 PM
Ok maybe they know something I don't. Nuggs on a run and Grizz looking flat. What a schizophrenic game

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:50 PM
Come on Grizz!!! Come on Grizz !!! Come on Grizz !!!!!

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:52 PM
Poppa bear !!! Don't do that!

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:53 PM
Composure guys. You knew it was coming. Now just try and wear them back down. They actually forgot how good they are!

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:58 PM
Nice ball movement. Now we have to concentrate on scoring. Nice 3 by bayless

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:59 PM
How is that a foul on ZBo ?

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 10:59 PM
There are no beauty fouls in this game. Refs must be stumped.

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 11:00 PM
Aha!! 5 on Faried. That helps

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 11:02 PM
****. Second run with us not getting one.

MrfadeawayJB
03-15-2013, 11:03 PM
Need to regroup and get our second wind...game is still in reach!

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 11:05 PM
Need some Q about now. Definitely getting momentum swing to Nuggs.
Do the Grizz have enough PLUS enough to get a W in Utah tomorrow ?
Decisions , decisions. Glad they're Lionel's and not mine.

MrfadeawayJB
03-15-2013, 11:05 PM
Playing gallo at the 4 had changed the game

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 11:07 PM
Yes!!! Mike Conley !!!

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 11:08 PM
You cretin , Joey Crawford.

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 11:10 PM
Each possession counts guys. No cheap points
And I'm about to :puke: with the Nuggs' announcers

mzgrizz
03-15-2013, 11:11 PM
Come on Grizz
Come on Grizz
Come on Grizz

MrfadeawayJB

Koufas having game of his life

MrfadeawayJB
03-15-2013, 11:27 PM
Tough loss, tomorrow looks like a loss too. I'm confident in a seven game series koufas won't look like the second coming of Wilt Chamberlin lol

3iverson3
03-16-2013, 02:53 AM
lol I was suprised Koufas got a career high in rebounds but that is the nuggets for ya. Always someone random doing good, almost every forum I see people say 'Brewer is killing wtf' hahah

GG guys! Hope we really don't see you guys in the playoffs you guys are crazy good and I really want to see both teams go far. Here is hoping for a Grizz-Nuggs matchup in the conference finals. That is the dream. We take out Spurs and you guys OKC (because you guys matchup better)

Back in the day when we were perennial lottery picks, I would wander over to the Nuggs forum and was a regular poster for them and with them during the playoffs. They are truly a great group of guys and they've ALWAYS made me welcome !

mzgrizz
03-16-2013, 10:20 PM
If the Grizz are as tired as I am of this road swing , we're in trouble :(

MrfadeawayJB

Lethargic effort so far

MrfadeawayJB
03-16-2013, 11:08 PM
Winning at the half. Need to continue the effort second half

MrfadeawayJB

Anyone got a stream?

03-17-2013, 12:07 AM
Wow if we somehow pull this out i will be thrilled

MrfadeawayJB
03-17-2013, 12:16 AM
That's game. Frustrating night. Shots that typically fall did not because we are exhausted

MrfadeawayJB
03-17-2013, 12:30 AM
Hope we can rebound against minny and avoid a three game slide

no way grizz are losing to minny...

03-17-2013, 02:17 AM

mzgrizz
03-17-2013, 09:21 AM
Didn't surprise me. I tried to follow this and couldn't get anything. Guess it was for the best I couldn't se or hear it or even follow on Game Time. THAT's never happened before !
I'll be glad they are home and hope they saved enough for tomorrow night

mzgrizz
03-17-2013, 10:26 PM
I just want the clips to keep losing haha

That's at least 2 of us!! But they do have some nice fans !
