Alright Mavs fans, let's all collectively root for the Grizzlies tonight. This is a crucial game for just about the entire Western Conference. If the Spurs lose, the Mavs take the division-record tiebreaker and will move to no. 1 again. Also, Memphis is playing to move ahead of the Clippers for the 5 spot.

The Spurs are 3-0 against Memphis, but two of those games were decided by one and three points respectively, and the Spurs are without Ginobili.

Go Grizzlies!

If I was the Grizz it would make more sense to lose... and this is just me... but winning this game would be suicide. Ok lets beat the spurs, now we are the 5th seed and have to play one of the top two teams in the conference in the first round. Denver is a significantly easier opponent and then once your over them you have Phoenix (likely) instead of the other top team in the conference. This is logical isint it?

Oh well... hopefully Memphis wants to prove that it can be a darkhorse in the playoffs and prove they can beat the spurs. I hope Pau destroys Duncan!!!!

How in the world can the grizzlies go on living if they allow a decimated spurs team to sweep them. I mean they might as well emasculate themselves if they let that happen.

One could say the same thing about the Spurs if they lose their third game in row to a team they've beaten all season when they deserately need to win this game.

Gasol is going to end up with a triple double with points rebounds and to's. 7 already.

Yea the "pros". I think it had artis gilmore and rick barry on it. I remember going to watch them in my youth.

Memphis looks to be bringing it tonight. Miller, in particular, looks to be having his way with Bowen and the rest of the Spurs. It was almost ready to get out of hand a moment ago, before the Spurs battled back.

Memphis is probably going to need to make a couple shots they shouldn't in order to pull this one off, as I'm sure the champs have more fight in them still. But the chances look pretty good!

didn't gilmore play for the kentucky aba team?

found this:

The ABA's Memphis franchise was first located in New Orleans, as the Buccaneers. In 1970, the franchise packed up, moved to Memphis and chose the name "Pros." When the national media questioned the nickname, team officials had a dubious explanation. To save costs, the team had decided to use the New Orleans uniforms left over from the year before. Those uniforms had the word "Bucs" sewn on the front. After removing the word "Bucs", a simple four-letter "replacement" nickname was necessary. Apparently, the team could not think of any better candidate than "Pros." Of course, in the world of the ABA, once "Pros" was placed on the recycled uniforms, it was too expensive to change.

The Pros had players like Steve "Snapper" Jones , Gerald Govan, Jimmy Jones, and Wendell Ladner and a coach Babe McCarthy.

Finley's won his share of games for the Spurs this year when it didn't look good. There is still a lot of time left so let's not get down yet.

04-09-2006, 08:15 PM
It's weird because the Spurs are up but this game still feels like a loss for them. Not because we want it but because they're not playing that well as a team today.

Horrible...you've got to call something there.

I will hand it to Memphis. They play really tough, and really smart. They could use some size inside in a terrible way.

Man, that drive Miller made it to tie it at 81 was, dare I say, Kobe-esque.

Gasol is a nice player but we saw again tonight that he's not ready for prime time.

I'd have like to see Miller take the shot.

Mavfan + Ravenfan
04-09-2006, 08:28 PM
damn. gasol killed his own team. how do you turn the ball over that many times.

MavsFanFinley
04-09-2006, 08:29 PM
I'd have like to see Miller take the shot.

I was positve that we'd see a 3 pointer by Miller early enough that if he missed that it would turn into a ft shooting contest.

Gasol gave nothing today.

We'll have to hope that Orlando (who's been pretty damn good lately) can sneak away with one or maybe Minnesota even.

Memphis= weak finish

Still, SA is getting beat up down the stretch, so maybe two teams can sneak in and give them a loss. I'm betting Utah gives them a good game on the back to back. We just have to hope for another loss. It'd be nice if Tmac came back...

Minnesota or Orlando beating the Spurs doesn't do much for the Mavs unless that's coupled with another Spurs loss. The Mavs need the Spurs to lose a division game.

MavsFanFinley
04-09-2006, 08:45 PM
NM. I misread your post.

I was banking on a couple Spurs losses while the Mavs win out. I was thinking Orlando and maybe Minnesota or Utah.

damn it...i can't believe the endless opportunities...WHY does SA get so many close wins...especially in the beginning of the year i remember that it seemed like every friggin win was between one and three points...damn it i despise them

Go Rockets! The odds of the Spurs losing TWO more games than we do are close to non-existent.

I'm certainly not betting on it, chum, but I wouldn't say the odds are non-existent. Actually, if Ginobili's out, I'd say the Spurs are much more likely to drop a couple of games against other opponents than they are to lose to Houston, who's eliminated from the playoffs and has nothing to play for.

It's not just today...Memphis is now 6-10 in games decided by 3 or less and Gasol is a big reason. We benefitted from it a couple of times but it bit us in the ass tonight.

But I said lose a couple MORE than we do. We're likely to lose one as well. We need the Spurs to lose two more than we do, unless they lose to Houston. It's a tall order, in that it will be hard enough for us to win out.

The Spurs are now 11-4 without Ginobli this season. That's pretty solid with one of your best 3 out.

chumdawg
04-09-2006, 10:53 PM
Mike gets a lot of minutes when Manu can't go. Mike is a multiple-All-Star and a cagey vet if ever there was one. He also has extreme range. This helps the Spurs out.

Rawle Marshall, on the other hand, does not help the Mavs out. Hence you can understand the comparative Mavs record when Howard has to wear dress clothes.

What's the Mavs' record without Howard?

I know the Spurs have played well without him, that's not the point. The point is, I think they're more likely to lose two games against other opponents than they are to lose to a McGrady-less Houston team that's already been eliminated from the playoffs.

I dont know the exact record but the mavs are around 16 and 9 without howard. Something in that area the problem is that alot of those games were also without devin and either griff or quis. This causes serious problems because those are the guys who could take up for his abscence
