    I wouldn't go that far, but something was fishy. We need to learn to play above it. It's going to happen again. The goal is to win anyway. We were terrible in the last 8 minutes. Even worse in the last 4.

    Where is @what ? If I were him I be gloating. Apparently he has class. Must stem from the cow dung mixed into his Memphis bbq. ;)

    Still not too legit...... proves the point that in the NBA almost every team can beat another team.

    Grizzlies will wear out and go on a big slump. Their style of play isn't sustainable. They will be too tired and end up in a low seed and lose to a more talented team in the Playoffs.

    Grizzlies are like a poor man's Spurs. Even if they are missing important players or playing second round picks big minutes, they just kind of grind out wins. It's all in the system. I watched the game today, and your Rockets are more talented, even without CP3. Harden is just THAT good. Memphis got gritty, Conley hit some really stupid contested 3's, and Harden went waaaay too hero mode. Your team is best when guys like Capela are getting easy as **** shots from Gordon and Harden breaking down the defense. Same goes for open 3's by all of your wing role players. When CP3 gets healthy, he is probably the best in the league at game management. It will help big time.

    I'm still pissed that my Blazers could have drafted Paul, but traded down in the draft for ****ing Martell Webster, because we were set at PG with Telfair.......... thanks John Nash (I know that he did good things for Houston, but **** him).

    Grizzlies have failed to improve the team, they are still good, have the best Center in the game, and an Allstar caliber yet not acknowledged Conley jr.

    They are getting worse......the sad thing is they still have potential but do not have enough talent to sustain it over a whole season and through couple of playoff series.

    We will agree to disagree.

    I saw the Grizz allowed to play football while when the Rockets tried to match, they were hit with ticky-tac and
    phantom calls. You are not beating an opposing team coupled w/ one sided leaning refs the entire game.


    The clincher to me was when the ref was hit with the ball. I’m watching other refs in other games now to see
    where they are positioned (same play).......they are on the court but find a way to stay clear of
    that 3-pt shooter quit easily.

    Funny schedule. They got to play Mavs and Rox in their latest 5 games TWICE this early on.

    They are good. Two keys are health and how they manage Tyreke. IF Parsons can get and stay healthy and Gasol and Conley don't go down and IF they can keep Tyreke on a tight chain and keep getting him to play the right way without getting selfish with the basketball THEN they have a chance to be great this season.

    Grizzlies down to 6-4. They would be 4-4 without the Rockets. Some of you people overreacted.

    The grizzlies play way down to their opponent's, which is so frustrating. That had no business losing to dallas or lakers.
    So with the grass always greener, the one thing you can say about harden, is that he always plays hard every game. Mike and marc dont.

    Like I said. Grizzlies will be fighting for 8th seed come playoff time. They'll be a tough low seed team, but they will be a low seed.

    ??? That shows how little Rockets basketball you watch.

    Rockets have one of the oldest teams in the league, and have been coasting all year long. I have yet to see a game of fantastic effort.

    The short answer is yes, he absolutely can If his jumper is on like it was. He is just that smart.

    The long answer is,
    What does Harden putting up 56-13 have to do with his consistent effort from game to game?

    Oh wait, it has nothing to do with that. Yes, you are very much entering the Twilight Zone.
