    Default Vs Grizzlies Gameday Thread

    Conflict of interest tonight boys, so I'm just going to (hopefully) enjoy a good baskeball game. Should be easier than trying to simultaneously cheer for two Hockey teams. I'm a bit more picky about that haha.

    Cavs have won 27 of 33 since Mid-January and beat Memphis in their previous encounter this season, 105-91.

    Should be interesting to watch the matchups tonight. Will he have Allen try to guard LeBron? Could see Jeff Green or even Courtney Lee guarding him as well. I expect Joerger will have some aggressive defensive match-ups. Kyrie vs Conley will be another match-up I am very interested in seeing how it plays out. Z-Bo not typically a great perimiter defender, wonder how much they will try to get Love the ball tonight. On offense, I go through ZBo all day, and make them try to stop him on the inside. Mozgov should mitigate Gasol but I don't think we really have a PF on the roster who can stop ZBo. So their bigs are going to test us tonight.

    Memphis has only lost 2 of its last 13 home games. Opponents are averaging below 90ppg and shooting under 41% in that stretch. The Forum will be alive tonight for this one, I wonder how the Cavs will play when the crowd isn't on their side.

    Both teams are playing well of late. The Grizz shaking off a recent cold snap, have won 3 straight. Similarly, the Cavs are on a 3 game win streak as well. This should be a doozie tonight.

    Back and forth so far. Cavs transition D needs to get tighter.

    Cavs pulling ahead, taking advantage of sloppy play from the Grizzlies and forced shots. Making the most of their opportunities.

    Cavs big 3 with 45 points so far (just in to the second half)

    Grizz 1-6 3's in the first half, Conley has two 3's already.

    The Grizz stars have to get going. Losing Vince Carter to a double-technical puts the Grizz in a bad position. I don't see them coming back in this, without any kind of offense the Cavs are just too strong.

    Grizz HAVE to quit forcing these 3's. I get that they need to make up ground but this is painful.

    Cavs with almost a 30 point lead. set to become the first opponent of the Grizz to put up 100 points on them at home in months...

    On the plus side... the Grizz bench IS outscoring the Cavs bench considerably, not that it matters. The Cavs have the lowest scoring bench in the NBA.

    The Grizz are losing morale right now, they're getting their heads down. This is the kind of loss that makes a team look at themselves.

    One thing I have to say too, the Cavs have MURDERED the Grizz on the glass, especially on the offensive end. TT and Mozgod have been a pain in the ass.

    James Jones in with the 4th Q again...

    Why not play him in the 3rd with this ridiculous lead and give Love those 4Q minutes?

    That's what Joerger seems to be doing. 25 point game now...

    I don't know why the Cavs aren't playing their bench guys right now, this is a route. The Grizz are not mounting a comeback.

    Jeff Green and Beno Udrih the only Grizz players in the + collumn... Wow. The worst game I've seen from them all year.

    On the flip side. LeBron was LeBron and Kyrie made Mike Conley look bad, he was the clear winner of that duel. He did have twice the number of dimes as Kyrie though...

    The turning point was Carter getting ejected. I think the Grizz just lost their energy completely after that.

    Gasol was one of the Grizz' only bright spots. He had a rough time defending Kevin Love though.

    Seriously watching LeBron tonight I really just appreciated it. He had a very solid performance but the thing I love is watching LeBron when he's dialed in, it just comes so easily to him. The way it comes to him on the court is really something. He just slices through defenses and shares the ball and it didn't matter who was defending him.

    I dunno dude you don't leave LeBron open for a jumper opportunity he's too good. Not as aggressive as say Kyrie at drawing fouls.

    Yeah...he's by no means terrible lol. I should have said where is he weakest at? You guys watch wayy more than I. I didn't watch many games when he left Cleveland....but always thought his jump shot was not on par with the rest of his game.
