    Darko and his lottery bound Griz team come to the Palace to match wits with the Pistons. They still have that Gasol guy which should make things interesting.

    Have to love these Friday night games no matter the level of competition.

    I wonder if Pistons would be interested enough in that game to show up. Hopefully lots of bench play in that one.

    Gasol has been out of action. They still have Rudy Gay, would love to see Tay get his Cajones back by dominating Rudy Gay on both ends of the floor. Maybe we'll see Amir in this game..........They may say that I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.......

    Memphis has lost a lot of close games, so they aren't quite as bad as you would think.

    Rudy is taking and making shots like a superstar player. I.e. one on one moves that are well guarded where he just gets the ball in the hoop. He's going through that process right now that will make him a true force in the future. He's playing a ton of minutes for a bad team and he can take any shot he feels like.

    Miller has been overly unselfish. Looks like he decided to take some shots last night.

    Navarro- he was very tentative at first and wasn't getting regular minutes, but now it seems as though he is taking over. Very deadly 3-point shooter when the pressure is on.

    Darko, seems like he has a lack of confidence lately. I would say that it is primarily because he tried to play through injuries and got used to not looking for opportunities on the offensive end. Still, he can shut down the paint when he's active. Against us, that won't matter, cause we spread it out so much.

    All the rest of their guys- young and streaky.

    Now that Hot Rod is good to go will he make his debut against the Griz or will it be on Sunday against the Rockets, given that Flipper has said on numerous occasions that Hot Rod will need at least a couple of contact practices before being put on the court during an actual game.

    I think it would be ironic if he made his NBA debut against Darko since we got the draft pick that eventually allowed us to draft him for Darko,

    This game is just what is needed after a such a high stress outing at the Garden. Going against the Swiss Cheese Griz will seem like a walk in the park on the ofensive end.

    Out of 30 teams in the league we are by far and away a helluva lot better than 15 of them, and clearly better than 9 of the remaining 15,but there's a real dog-fight going on between the top 6 teams in the league (Det, Bos, Orl, SA, Dal,Phx). I say that to say this, for us half of the gosh-darn league is nothing more than practice time when we play against them. Memphis is a team that Amir and Stuckey should always get mins against. Earth to Flip, we're trying to win a Title.

    They are a year or 2 away, although Farmar is scary good as well as Bynum. I'm starting to think that the UCLA guys are about as good as it gets for ready-mix NBA players, just add contract. They're kinda like Lloyd Carr's wolverines, OK in college, boring system, put it was a pro-style system where guys were ready for the NFL immediately, as oppossed to Spurriers gimmicks in Florida back in the day.

    Could be interesting, though. They just beat Orlando in Orlando, and San Antonio.

    They would like to make it 3 straight against top teams in a week.

    Wouldn't that be a shocker??

    How about that snazzy new timer that is accurate no matter what time zone you're in?

    Looks great, Low. I thought it might have been just for the Celtics game, since it was such a big event, but is it going to be up there for every game? That's definitely cool, although it's a little weird seeing it now after it debuted for that huge matchup. Are you ready to face the Grizzlies? :sssh:
