    Love having the back to back after losses. I hate stewing for a few days after a loss like this.

    Well, I'm happy to move on to another game. That last one stung but before knowing who was sitting and then seeing them sitting even more in the fourth quarter I had this as a loss for us. I had all of the rest of these games as wins and I think they will be. We will beat Philly tomorrow and maintain the ninth spot which we still occupy, just like we did before we lost to the Clippers. We got this!!! Go Blazers!!! Hopefully we can address our roster problems in the off season but for now these are the guys we are rolling with and I want them to go as far as possible.

    depending on what else happens tomorrow, if Portland loses, they could fall to 10th

    Portland has to win 2 of their remaining 3 games to guarantee a better record than New Orleans. They sure don't want to be in a situation where they have to beat the Pels twice to advance

    Is Whiteside injured or did he “rest” because of the back-to-back?

    If the latter, someone needs to be fired! We MUST take this one game at a time or might as well go home...

    We can still finish 8th. That should be the goal so we only have to win one play-in game

    Memphis has a 1.5 game lead over Portland, and with games against Toronto, Boston, & Milwaukee left, I wouldn't normally expect Memphis to win a single game with Jaren Jackson. But none of the 3 teams they play really have anything to play for. They can't catch anybody and they can't fall behind anybody; their seeds are locked. So it's possible that the Grizz can win one of those remaining games and hold onto 8th

    Honestly, I don't think it's likely but I hope that Memphis wins out. We can beat that Memphis team two times in a row (as long as we don't play like we did this morning). So if we can pass them great but if we just win our games, I think we'll end up the 8th seed in the playoffs.
