Trail Blazers vs. Grizzlies Game Thread


It's the last home regular season game in the Rose Garden aka Fan Appreciation Night, and it couldn't carry any more implications. With Memphis defeating New Orleans last night, Portland now controls their own destiny for the #6 seed. Also, a Portland win assures them of a seed no lower than #7, but it won't be easy. Even without Rudy Gay, the Grizzlies are still 15-8 in their last 23 games without their star wing. Why? They're huge. The tandem of Gasol and Randolph allow Memphis to dominate the paint. Also, Memphis picked up Shane Battier at the deadline and the resurgence of O.J. Mayo have also offset the loss of Gay. The two teams haven't matched up with one another since the Grizzlies' 86-73 win back on December 13th. The Trail Blazers' took the first contest, 100-99, on November 16th. This will be the first and only time the Grizzlies will make a stop in the Rose City.

So Rip City, what must the Trail Blazers do to take care of the Grizzlies?continue
