Simple question. A mod can close it after it's been answered but I was just wondering, if Memphis loses do they get the 8th seed thus having to play San Antonio?

yeah its pathetic. stern should punish them for tanking by giving them the 7 seed. blakes gonna go for 50 tho

I don't think Dallas is as bad a matchup for them but I agree, SA would be more favorable.

Sure enough, they're down 11-2 to start against the Clips.

No joke.........I personally would have rather seen them play as hard as they have been with all their players and go for it. BUT ! They didn't ask me

it's all cool, we are resting our starters so when the real season begins we can punch the spurs in the mouth

i never said we would win the series, but if you think it will be a cakewalk you are seriously under-estimating the grizz

Ginobili may have a possible injury tonight. Memphis will more than likely play SA.

well i'm sure the truth is somewhere in the middle, but imo the spurs already hit their ceiling earlier in the season, and are declining latley...their age will catch up to them in at least 1-2 games this series..

ps: if you think the grizz team/effort you are watching on espn right now is the one you will face in a few days, i feel sorry for you....but i trust your not that naive

Let's all agree to disagree and see what happens this next week. SA is tough for sure, but they can be had. Split the series with them this year and trust me, they don't like to lose to our boys. I don't mind being underrated at all; it's what actually happens next week that matters AND that we fought our way back into the playoffs in a VERY tough conference and the baddest division in all of the NBA.

Powe just got ejected for running over BG....they'd been at it back and forth in the fake game tonight. Hope that doesn't mean he'll be out the first playoff game?????

Is your team disrespected, sure...i recognize thier accomplishments in the regular season, great job. But if you think like some LA or BOS fans that you are entitled to have a great team every year based on past successes, then :facepalm: to you sir. That's what makes rational fans like myself dislike irrational fans. Now with the possible Ginoboli injury will you still not concede that the grizz will be a tough out. Only team that will be an easy out in the west is the Hornets imo

LOL I'd be happy to take one in Memphis but I'm telling you, this team is different than the ones from 5-7 years ago. I'm not sure we can take the Spurs in the series, but I'm also not so sure that we cannot do just that. It will be a wonderful week. Absolutely can't wait !!!!

I was laying on the sarcasm pretty thick woman!

and yes, if I were the Grizz, I wouldn't be overly happy about facing either. But who would you rather face? The two time current champs, or the bad *** Spurs?

Obviously you take your chances with the Spurs.

there will be a PSD Roundtable thread on write ups for the entire 1st round. I volunteered for the Spurs-Grizz (assuming that is the series). I would love if you would send me any opinions you have girl. I will be done with it by late thursday, and I am sure Grizz fans will be more than ok with my fairness.

It's too bad they lost Rudy although they continued to play well regardless. I think with the playoffs you really need your best player but I think they give the Spurs a good fight. I just hope they win their first ever playoff game.

Memphis is gonna give a big scare to San Antonio. The game goes to 7, but San Antonio survives only to lose in round 2
