Oh yeah- that would be awesome. DJ and Blake need to do their part. We don't rebound, we can't run, and a lot of those 3's Clippers have made this season are from being able to steal/rebound, push, and launch before the defense sets.

time to nerd out with some key trends:

  • in all 4 games thusfar, the team that wins the first quarter, wins the game. its all about setting the tone.

  • naturally, the team that wins the rebounding battle in the first quarter has won the rebounding battle in the game and also wins game 1: lac 11, mem 9 game 2: lac 11, mem 7 game 3: mem 11, lac 8 game 4: mem 13, lac 6

  • shots werent falling in memphis FG% by game game 1: 55% game 2: 47% game 3: 38% - loss game 4: 41% - loss


here are the 4 big categories that have dictated the series

second chance points: game 1: lac 25, mem 5 (!) game 2: mem 15, lac 11 game 3: mem 22, lac 4 (!!) game 4: mem 22, lac 2 (!!)

grizz offensive rebounds game 1: 4 game 2: 8 game 3: 17 - loss game 4: 13 - loss

rebound war (self explanatory) game 1: lac 47, mem 19 game 2: lac 40, mem 38 game 3: mem 45, lac 33 game 4: mem 45, lac 28

points in the paint (close gap in wins, distant in losses) game 1: lac 46, mem 48 game 2: lac 50, mem 46 game 3: lac 26, mem 40 game 4: lac 38, mem 46

^good post ekker. No question we have to win the rebounding war, stop them from getting 2nd chance opportunities, and make wide open shots. Too many missed open shots. I think we should shoot better at home. I'm more concerned about the rebounding.

^^Yup good stats Ekker. We can't rebound, we can't run, and have to contend with the tough Memphis half-court defense, and that's a big reason why the FG % drops. And of course, you work so hard to get a stop, and if you let Memphis score on a putback, then all that effort/energy defensively was for naught. So you can work your ass off defensively, but don't secure the board- that's just as bad as allowing an easy layup. Actually it's worse. You might as well allow the easy layup to start because then you don't waste all that energy, lol.

i might be wrong, but i dont think 2nd round games are on FSW (meaning no ralph and mike).

id encourage everyone to avoid the national tv coverage and get their fix of lawler while they can.

We need CP3 and Griffin to play well and not get pushed around. Allen and Z-Bo respectively just pushed them around.

Correct. Only TNT and ABC (maybe ESPN) will carry games from 2nd round on.

On another note, you guys better hope the Kings vs Blues game doesn't go to OT as it is on FSPT before the Clippers game. Remember, OT in the playoffs is continuous, no shootouts.

We need Del Negro to play them longer. Grizz have Gasol playing over 40 a game. Griffin is right around 31 and Paul like 34. They need to be playing more!!!

Having home court is an advantage but we have had some pretty sick loses this year at home so we are by no means invincible

It's Gotta Happen tonight. Everyone must step up and everyone must play with a killer instinct. We cannot let Memphis have their way with us, otherwise it will be a repeat of Games 3 and 4.

Wouldn't be so sure about that.Combined Griz record of playoff games officiated the last two years by tonight's game 5 crew is 7-1. D. Crawford 2-0 Phillips 2-1 Davis 3-0.

It's officially 5 on 8 IMO.

What if this Kings game goes overtime? You know how playoff hockey games can go forever. Does FS have a back up plan?

Whoever controls the boards, wins this game. Sense of urgency better translate to performance on the floor.

Blake injured his ankle in practice yesterday per fox sports west. Dam. He didn't participate in shoot around this morning. The last thing I wanted to hear was so injury on our team.
