Odom got more rebounds then Gasol and ZBO who got 5 each in game one.

We got out hustle in game one we cannot let that happen if they beat us by skill so be it.

CF86 is banned for tonights game :clap:

It's only 3 days, I'm a little disappointed they couldn't get for the entire playoffs!

The series is going to be tough for the Grizz if it is going to be officiated like Game 1 was. Our games are usually physical wars where Memphis pushes us around but we do enough to either win or keep it close. They called EVERTYHING in game 1...on both teams. Before everyone starts in on the all Clippers flopping crap, I didn't notice 1 flop...our gaurds however are very good at getting to the line and carried us in game 1. Memphis needs much better guard play to even this series up.

Prince and Conley struggled big time in game 1. If they can get production out of them and Z-bo and Gasol return to form they win tonight. Those were key ingredients for victory in the first game. Fouls got them early too.

Frickin frustrating to me. ZBo disappears again.

kinda wishing you had Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo right about now? or at least one of the two?

seems to me that they are now just a regular season team. Not saying their future is in question but realistically, who do they look for after Randolph (considering Gasol is not an offensive force) on their team and in the future?

Rudy Gay was a stupid contract and maybe Mayo was a disappointment but i'm sure they could use other scorers right now

Same ole story against the Clips for the Griz. A dismal 4th quarter. Poor scoring, rebounding, turnovers and missed free throws.

Cant have Marc guarding Barnes in the weakside corner on that last play. He wasnt even at the rim to challenge CP. Take Arthur out and match the small of Clips.

Also would have thrown more at CP but seems like Griz got what they wanted other then Marc in corner.

You say it as if it was a blatant push off. Refs aint gonna call small contact like that, same reason they didn't call the handchecking before the play. CP3 knew they were letting the players decide the outcome.

Even Kenny said it was a 2-way foul, the kind of stuff the refs always let go.

Fts doomed the grizz

Hollins getting outclassed by Del Negro aint helping either.

Lol I wanted the grizzlies to win. But if you wanna call that a push off you'd be seeing a foul every minute in the nba.

I had no problem letting the Paul push off slide since tony hand checked , but I'm not so fond of Griffin holding Arthur to not allow the help defense. But the refs swallowed the whistle and the grizz should expect it

Meh, if they call the first foul, we're at the line.

And I dont think he saw that one since all eyes were on the ball, cant swallow the whistle on something you didn't see, particularly when its not egregious. And Im surprised the Grizz dont expect it, the Clips sure as hell dont.

Believe me, I would much rather this series be decided by skill than physicality. We played your game last year and won, we have proven to be able to adapt against the Grizz, but if this were a free flowing game devoid of physicality, we would sweep IMO.

Clipps can't buy any respect around here. Both games have been officiated consistantly. Game 1 they called everything. Game 2 they swallowed the whistle. Like Chronz said if they called everything CP3 goes to the line on the hand check from Allen which was just as "clearly" a foul as the CP3 push off. Blake holding is irrevelent. If you just going to swallow the whistle that doens't get called either. No matter what the first foul was Allen's if you want to complain.

I've just never seen a player push off several times like that before. It was such an awkward slow sequence.
