Grizzlies vs. Raptors at 1 PM today

Great news! The Portland Trail Blazers lost yesterday!!!

That loss puts the Grizzlies in 8th place in the West  by 1.5 games, with Phoenix and San Antonio 2 games back, New Orleans 2.5 games back, and Sacramento out of the playoff race at 3.5 games back.

The Grizzlies play Marc Gasol and the Toronto Raptors today at 1. The Raptors are pretty much locked in to the 2 seed in the East at this point, so they may choose to rest some of their best players in anticipation of round 1 of the playoffs. The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Southeast and the Fox Sports GO app.

Other games of interest today:

  • San Antonio at New Orleans, 2 PM, ABC (Too bad they can’t both lose… despite the Spurs having a half-game lead, I will be rooting for them, because I don’t want to see Zion in the play-in series)
  • Philadephia at Portland, 5:30 PM, NBATV (We want the 76ers to win and further sink the Trail Blazers in the standings)

That’s all the news I got this morning. Let’s all remember to wear our masks, social distance ourselves, and wash our hands, because we have a goal to shoot for… can you imagine if we get the average number of new cases below 180 and the positivity rate below 10% in a couple of weeks AND THE BARS OPEN BEFORE SHELBY COUNTY SCHOOLS DO??? The social media “medical experts” would have a shit fit!!! Just think of the tirades we would see on Facebook and Twitter! You know Mayor Harris would try to walk it back somehow, but how could he, when he signed the health directive! Please, let’s make this happen!

That’s all for now. I may do a second post later today. If not, see you tomorrow.
