    The Sixers started 3-0 in 2013/14, beating the Miami Thrice and the then relevant Bulls, but finished 19-63. So let's just keep in realistic: The Grizzlies still have no shooting, terrible scouting and after Randolph, Carter and Allen are all gone, they wholly rely on two 30+ guys with significant injury histories. Hence they will miss the playoffs by far.

    If they fight, they probably can come close but I dun want to speculate in the Wild West Powerhouse.

    They are overrated. Curry and Durant were ejected.

    But Parsons is the G.O.A.T. (at sitting on the bench while collecting millions)

    Just ask Cuban and swyyyguy

    Big, versatile centers that can match up with Draymond Green give the Warriors problems. Marc Gasol, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Karl Anthony Towns etc. GSW doesn't have many weaknesses but this is one. Also, GSW feasts on turnovers, if you keep YOUR turnovers down that is huge.

    Yeah, the Grizz seem to give GSW trouble at times over the years.

    I did take from the game that Grizz are a playoff contender still. With the new look Wolves, Pelicans, and Nuggets and Jazz playing better, I thought that perhaps they may not make it, but it seems Conley and Marc are still a very formidable duo.

    As for the Warriors, not sure what's going on with them if anything, but I'm sure they will fix it.

    Curry and Durant were ejected at the end of the game. Griz were blowing them out.

    Conley and Gasol are just good at basketball and leadership. That's why no matter how much talent they have around them, no matter who's injured, they are always able to compete. Talent, defense, hard work, and high bball IQ go a long way. Paul Millsap is cut from the same cloth as well.

    It's too bad we play the Grizzlies so many times in the beginning of the season without CP3. I still think we're better though. And thank god they don't have Tony Allen anymore. Harden should feast on their inexperienced wing rotation.

    The game was under control when they got tossed. The Griz earned this win. The tossing was in frustration of losing the game and it being out of hand. But I agree that Parsons is the goat. Amazing warmer of seats.

    Grizzlies will finish 82-0 if the refs call games like that. Can confidently say that.

    Still a lame franchise
    Very boring to watch; a slow painful death (but obviously works for them)

    Warriors are going to have problems incorporating Casspi and Nick Young into their system.

    Too much of anything can be bad. Like icing on a cake.


    Yes, did anyone else feel like the refs were paid to throw this game?
