Bad news. Calathes suspended 20 games for violating nba anti drug policy. Prob something weak like Oj taking energy pills at a gas station.

It's actually a breast cancer drug used to block estrogen. Damn supplements don't have to tell you what is in them. Legally !! If he was trying to game the system somehow, shame on him, but he doesn't exactly look ripped, does he?

Yikes, this is about my worst nightmare for today. After learning about Calathes, I was worried they'd be jumpy. Can't find a rhythm.

OKC is on fire and with the Uni-blue robots; and us not getting the freebies; and shooting under 20%; :puke:

Would the Calathes revelation have made any difference after all? OKC is looking unbeatable. And with the 3 earlier games going to the underdog, no way OKC was going to get caught tonight.

Ugly first half. We are missing fts

Good third quarter. Keep fighting grizz, we are in it!

Tough loss but we can play with them

Yes we can. Had to have built their confidence. But damn referees will snatch that away. In the main forum most of the posters thought refs were horrible. First time I've not felt stupid about criticizing them! Showed a lot of heart. Hope Conley's ankle gets better. It should be crazy Thursday night when the suckers come here!!!

Yeah we missed too many fts and Beno can only improve chemistry with teammates.

Game 2 let's go grizz!

Up after the first half. Keep it up grizz!

Memphis showing their heart and effort again. After Perk tied the game and forced OT I thought for sure Memphis was in trouble. Credit for never giving in. Mission accomplished though, steal one on the road and take home court advantage away from OKC. Now handle home court!

Now that's Grit n Grind. they played very compose and man, what a heart they have there. Really good win to go back home and take care of business there. If we play like this always, there's no doubt we could topple this mighty Thunder.

Great win! Memphis should get some calls in the grindhouse and the role players should excel

Hey LFLOL !!! Great game. Can't wait to be there Thursday. !!!

Hello! Enjoy it should be fun! I expect the game to be rugged and rough. Put them on the ropes when the return home and who knows what'll happen!

Ok with me but you'll have to break the news to my hubby !!! :)
A friend said she gets tickets online right before every game. If you drove in , you'd be taking a chance but at least you'd be here !

Oh I hope they come out with the killer instinct!! And keep the foot down !!
Go Grizz !!!

Hope we can sustain and build our leads. We are sure to start off on fire tonight in front of our home crowd!

Great first half. Need that same effort in the second

MrfadeawayJB
04-24-2014, 11:14 PM
Awesome win although we were fortunate our choke job didn't cost us. Get game 4 and we are in great shape

cyclonw
04-24-2014, 11:21 PM
what an ugly win.... we should learn to keep a lead like that. If we loss that game that would be it for us coz I don't know if we can still recover from that game...
Well, at least the team showed their heart again in there. Hopefully the team won't be complaisant next game and take it as a must win game... my heart has still not recovered. :-)

MrfadeawayJB
04-24-2014, 11:34 PM
We need to treat game 4 as a must win because okc will likely shoot 40 fts a game at home

mzgrizz
04-25-2014, 12:46 AM
Only 40????

LionsFan..LOL
04-25-2014, 01:50 AM
Great win! Wish I could have watched more but the derp wings were on and lost :sigh:

Sorry about that ... But man oh man ,what a gritty group of Grizzlies !!! And the addition of Beno Udrih saved the playoffs !!! Was fun hearing TagTeam at halftime doing "whoomp there it is " !!

Getting ready to head downtown. GO GRIZZ !!!! GO GRIZZ !!!! GO GRIZZ !!!!!!!!!!!!

Need a much better second half... Go grizz!

MrfadeawayJB
04-27-2014, 01:06 AM
Tough loss. Need to rebound in game 5. Joeger make them practice fts!

mzgrizz
04-27-2014, 02:50 AM
Absolutely. Maybe they should be paying $$$ for missed fts.
Hey Pera !! How's that idea?

cyclonw
04-27-2014, 09:47 PM
I only watch until the first half coz i had to do something, judging by what I saw I got the feeling that we will loss game 4. We are missing FTs and our bench were non factor during the period. But I was surprise though that we got another OT and that we are actually leading before the OT. Hopefully we'll know how to keep leads and make our FTs. Hopefully we will win this series and goes to the finals in honor to Heisley. R.I.P. Heisley

MrfadeawayJB
04-29-2014, 10:15 PM
Wow great first half. Execution was nice but we need to hit fts and have another awesome 24 mins

MrfadeawayJB
04-30-2014, 01:01 AM
Unbelievable game! Need to flush it and bring intensity in the grindhouse! Let's end it game 6!

LionsFan..LOL
04-30-2014, 02:40 AM
Good win Grizz! I don't like making predictions but playing like they did early on, from what I saw, should put the thunder away.

MrfadeawayJB
04-30-2014, 08:23 AM
Yeah the grizz have outplayed the thunder most of the series. The explosive scoring of the thunder and lack of for the grizz makes it interesting though

MrfadeawayJB
04-30-2014, 10:54 PM
Man it sucks I'll be at work thurs night and miss the game. Hopefully we close them out!

LionsFan..LOL
05-01-2014, 01:49 AM
Dvr it and don't look at your/a phone/comp/tv until you get home. I've done it before and the anticipation and angst builds 10 fold! Not knowing what everybody else does sucks but is really rewarding should the team you want to win, wins.

MrfadeawayJB
05-01-2014, 09:51 AM
I don't have dvr. Need to put it on my wish list though, no doubt

The Grindhouse is gonna be a absolutely insane tonight.

Hopefully the fans carry is to a victory. We need to treat this like a game 7

Weather the early storm Memphis. If they can stay close the Grizz should be able to pull away late.

MrfadeawayJB
05-01-2014, 11:02 PM
Tough loss. Grizz always play focused on the road, I expect nothing less game 7

mzgrizz
05-01-2014, 11:13 PM
Turrible performance !!! Poor shooting and little defense. Gross !!!!!

MrfadeawayJB
05-03-2014, 08:16 AM
What the NBA has done is disputable, unfair and flat out cheating. If they want to hold the rules like that, then why was mcroberts and George not suspended like ZBO and Blair were? Pathetic. Hope we and the Mavs shock the world!

mzgrizz
05-03-2014, 09:40 AM
For the life of me, when this blatant crap happens, I wonder why I give my money to the NBA for tickets for 13 years. We build a team over the years, build widespread community support for the team and then they screw us over with a LEAGUE call over the refs in the actual game. My husband has always thought I was too conspiracy minded but for the first time ever, he's thinking it was a deliberate action by the league to insure the OKC victory.
I won't be surprised if they downgrade the suspension AFTER OKC wins tonight, and fine Zach instead. Of course it will be moot at that point. Other than to not dock ZBo some money. Some consolation that will be.
I just wish somehow we could still pull it out and win tonight. If there is a basketball god that cares about consistency in applying the rules of the game and not interfering with the refs , it will happen.
Go Grizz !!!! Go Grizz !!! Go Grizz !!!!!

mzgrizz
05-03-2014, 06:46 PM
Let me backup and make another point. IF the refs had ejected ZBo in game 6 instead of waiting for the league to suspend him the next day, we would have had ZBo to play tonight.
I WANT A MEMPHIS MIRACLE TONIGHT !!!! LET'S GO GRIZZ AND KICK SOME THUNDER *** !!!!!!

MrfadeawayJB
05-03-2014, 08:03 PM
The sad thing is we built this team the right way on a small market. We play the right way. Maybe not the sexiest, but we play as a TEAM every night and play hard every night unlike others

LionsFan..LOL
05-03-2014, 09:30 PM
Given all that has happened from the end of game 6 to now, I'd being only down 3 is a good thing in the Grizzlies book.

MrfadeawayJB
05-03-2014, 11:09 PM
Tough way to end the season. I still am in love with this team and look forward to next season

I Am Awesome-O
05-04-2014, 01:22 AM
Strange season and even stranger playoffs, and I had a blast the whole time. I love the pure heart and determination we showed all year. I can't wait to see what kind of moves we make this summer.
