The Pre-Funk: Blazers at Grizzlies 11/10

The all day coverage you need to go into tonight's contest.  We're just making sure you're prepared to drop that extra knowledge on the brosephs to get you another smidgen of respect.

Party Attendees...

If Nate McMillan really wants to use this new lineup to get the Blazers to run, then a match-up with tonight's opponent couldn't have come at a better time.  The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing an astounding 120 points per game all while mustering up a 5 game losing streak.  It's unlikely that the Grizzlies are a more pathetic basketball team than the Timberwolves, especially when you look at the talent on their roster, but they have zero control.  This may not be the blowout we saw on Sunday night, but it should be high flying and exciting as hell to watch.

As I'm sure you are all aware, our buddy Zach Randolph is putting up his exact career numbers for the Grizzlies:  20 points per game, 10 rebounds, 18 fadeaways, 0 defensive efforts, 4 pouting faces, and 3 swaggers.

Make sure to keep an eye on O.J. Mayo as this kid is the real deal.  He put up 40 on the Nuggets earlier this year and has completely lived up to the hype that's followed him around for the past 5-6 years.  Plus, no one can work 2 arm sleeves any better.  Take note Jerryd Bayless.

Lastly, tonight will also provide the opportunity for the Mike Conley lovers to bitch about Steve Blake, the acquisition of Dre Miller and pop off another dozen trade machine scenarios on how to steal him from Memphis.  "But he's Greg's best friend!"  Our fans are pretty fantastic, but the ones obsessed with Conley are complete fools.

And no, I'm not bringing up Allen Iverson. He's so 1996.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
