That "worst team" label is decieving. Memphis has Gasol back. This won't be a cake walk, by any means...


::lol: What am I saying? The Grizzlies are 2-8 WITH Gasol this year!


I'd think the Warriors should take this one (especially since they're due to start playing at their highest level again).

Well Baron played 48 minutes against the Hornets so we'll see if he's mobile enough for a back-to-back.

The Grizz have a new coach but just aren't the same. I say throw the rest of the year and find a complementary player for Gasol!

Only thing that worries me is that is a back-to-back road game... still, it's Memphis. Should be a win.

Maybe Greg Oden would be a good fit next to Gasol :-o


Tough win to pick as it is a back to back and on the road.

Not only will the Warriors win, but Murphy will suck so bad that he won't start until February. Warriors by 10. Biedrins & Gasol go at it, Diogu gets a litte run (hell, he's rested :roll: ) and BD returns to form.

Haha lets hope your right about the Murphy part! I think we win even though it is a back to back. The grizz just blow this year.

giving up 140 to a team who were 7-25 is downright atrocious. shame on the w's.

Wow, 144 points to the Memphis f***ing Grizzlies. EMBARRASSING. There's a reason why they are 7-25. Its not because they score 144 points a night. And the no-name loser to light up the W's tonight is...... Mike Miller with 33 points.

Disappointing loss. The Warriors were out-played in every aspect of the game (FG%, 3P%, rebounding, turnovers, ect)... EXCEPT the dreaded free-throws. Golden State shot 10% better from the stripe than Memphis.

Where you at now, Bob??? (thats a joke, btw. Non-offensive and socially acceptable).
