Trail Blazers @ Grizzlies Game Thread


For the Trail Blazers to walk out of Memphis with another win, they'll have to take a page from the Grizzlies' playbook and grind it out. There will be no first to 100 tonight as the Memphis D is tops in the NBA , as they allow a league-low 89.5 points per game. Not many thought the Trail Blazers could win playing Memphis' style of game, but they did so earlier this season. This means that points will be at a premium so free-throw shooting will be key. The Grizz shot a perfect 18-17 from the charity stripe compared to Portland's 10-15. Also, quality shots will play a role. The Blazers shot just 10-27 from downtown last meeting and will need to work inside out to get the good looks they'll need to pull out the W. Finally, every possession matters when the score is in the 80's, so whichever team can take care of the ball will have a distinct advantage in this one.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory? Continue>>>
