Matchups to Watch

James Posey and Peja Stojakovic will do battle in hopefully more ways than one.

Notes
The Grizzlies take their six game winning streak back to the Pyramid to face the Sacramento Kings for the fourth and final time in the regular season. The game will feature a rematch of the Posey/Stojakovic scuffle that occurred a month ago to the day. On December 23rd, Peja tried to run up the score in the closing seconds in a game where he had already bumped a referee after a technical foul call and slapped at Posey's hand later in the game. Posey threw Peja to the ground in retaliation, prompting Posey's ejection, although he was vocally supported by his teammates. To get the better of Peja tonight, Posey will have to stay out of foul trouble, which has limited him in the regular season series against the Kings. The Grizzlies are shooting for a franchise-high seven wins.

Injury Report
- Troy Bell (sore left knee), Theron Smith (back spasms), and Ryan Humphrey (concussion) are on the injured list.

Notes
The Kings are sporting the best record in the Western Conference and are coming off a hard-fought victory over the Cavaliers. Stojakovic scored 37 points, continuing his early campaign for MVP, while Vlade Divac put in a near triple-double. Stated in other game threads, Divac and teammate Brad Miller lead the NBA in combined assists for starting post players. The Kings could have put away the Cavs last night, but kept letting Cleveland sneak back into the game. Divac was 1-8 from the free throw line. This is the second game of a six game road trip for the Kings.

Injury Report
- Lawrence Funderburke (left Achilles surgery) is out.
- Chris Webber (left knee rehabilitation) is on the injured list.

I wouldn't miss watching this game for anything. This should be a real intense game after the last one in Sac Town.

I really, really, really want this win.

please let this be a win. this game is important because this is an elite team we're playing. we've beaten them earlier this season, we need to beat them again, let them know it wasn't a fluke. also, in the tough west all the games are important. most importantly, we set a franchise record for longest winning streak if we get this.

kings is one of the few teams in the league that has a bench comparable to the Grizzlies. what's different between the two is that kings have a couple proven stars(Peja, Miller, Bibby). If Posey, Pau, and JWill can hold their own, then hopefully we'd be able to clench this win. this is going to be a fun exciting game. both teams are incredibly athletic.

If we are truly a play off contender, and we are moving to the next level, then this is the kind of game that becomes a "must win".

We got to bring it tonight!! And we've got to shut Bobby Jackson down. He eats our lunch every time we play these guys. He may be the best guard in the league & he comes off the bench!! Oh, to have that kind of talent.

Yep, I got courtside seats next to the bench. :bsmile: Happy day before my birthday to me! :bsmile:

I'm pumped for this game. We beat the Kings last time they came here and it was quite a game. Hopefully we'll be in for another great one tonight.

Nice. How nice does he probably feel for getting the chance to play in a huge (huge huge) game like this. Who woulda figured??

Jebus (Memphis's basketball deity) would do that though.

I am starting to feel that what made Earl Watson so good off the bench last season was Brevin Knight running the offense.


Another Sacremento cheap shot on Posey!
