    This is pretty much a must win right out of the gate. Otherwise, they have to beat everyone else to #9 and then sweep the Griz in the 2-game play in.

    Go-Play-Destroy!

    Welcome back goat.

    As for the matchup, just judging from what I saw in the scrimmages I think Collins should start.

    Yeah, if Stotts goes with Hassan with Nurk instead, I will be surprised and dismayed. Our starting lineup (as shown above) and our bench both look better than Memphis. I think we got this.

    It’s weird on paper we should be a damn good team. Especially with Hood but obviously he’s hurt.

    I voted with everyone else BUT we were four losses behind the Grizzlies going into the March 12th game against them. Kings, Pels, and Spurs had 1 fewer loss than us. If we’d lost that game, we probably wouldn’t have recovered esp with a 6 game road trip looming. With this CURRENT schedule, there’s no pressure on us to pass Memphis and our two extra games played is an unfair disadvantage to the Pels and Kings esp since Pels won the season series. Ok I’m changing my vote.

    For a brief moment, seeing this game thread made me forget about the pandemic.

    Darkwebs is the cure. We must go into testing.
