Grizzlies are a very good team. But I highly doubt that they will hit 60% from 3point range in every game like last night. But of course Miami has no answer to Gasol & Z-Bo anyway...

The main thing is that people will respect our 3 point shooters now. People have always clogged the paint against us and dared our players to shoot the 3. Spreading the floor will help zbo and marc so much.

Are Ellington and Bayless even going to be playing much in the playoffs, though? Conley and Rudy will have to knock 'em down.

Your 3 point shooting is being carried by your two new bench additions. It's not something that can be counted on long term over the course of a season. Your bread and butter still needs to be destroying teams in the paint but I agree at least now teams can't pack the paint as much.

I believe the Grizzlies are up there. For them, anything less than the 2nd round should be considered a season failure.

Lakers/Thunder/Spurs/Clippers in no particular order.

Im not sure if Clippers can beat the Grizz again in a 7 game playoff series. that was a really close series last playoffs. Kenyon Martin and Reggie Evans were huge for the Clippers in that series. Neither are back this season. It really remains to seen if Blake and DJ can hold up their end vs Marc and Z-Bo. I'll love watching it though. that was a throwback series to the 90s. The grittiness and physical play was epic. Loved every minute of it

Surprised SpecialQue didn't say anything about the Grizzlies "peppering anguses" or something along those lines.

I think Thunder, Lakers and Clips... but Grizzlies have a chance of being there instead of Spurs depending on matchups. Denver definitely isn't scaring anybody right now. Still find it funny that so many were hailing them the dark horse to win the west, top 3 seed etc.

Clippers are SIGNIFICANTLY deeper than last year, more so than I even expected. The biggest issue the Grizzlies have currently with the Clippers is Chris Paul's lack of turnovers and ability to penetrate and kick. Prior to CP3 it was our defense because Memphis goes on huge scoring lulls.

If Grizzlies aren't forcing turnovers and running, the Clippers are winning. You can't use the playoff series as an example because the Clippers were up 3-1 before the CP3 and Blake injuries, before losing two straight including one at home.

The Grizzlies are going to be the Ron Popeil's of the NBA, slicing and dicing and making Julienne fries out of the opposition's anuses. They're going to slide their meat into the league's Showtime Rotisseries, setting it and forgetting it. And when the NBA begs them to stop, the Grizzlies will raise a solitary finger and yell, "BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!"
