Trail Blazers @ Grizzlies Game Thread
The Grizzlies live and breathe Grit n Grind basketball. It's their team identity and the style of play that's got them to where they are currently - a 20-9 record and a clear path to home-court advantage in the playoffs. Really, only JJ Hickson can match that brand of basketball for 48 minutes, so Portland would be wise to "pretty" the game up. The Trail Blazers should push the tempo at any given chance, attack the basket, shoot the open 3 and try to get as many possessions out of this game as possible. It's this one becomes a slobberknocker, grinf-it-out affair, it really plays into Memphis' hands. That's not to say the Blazers shouldn't fight for every rebound, but this game needs to be up in the 100's for the Trail Blazers to win.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
