Grind Prophecies: And So It Begins

Jeff Gross

Another year in the playoffs; another match-up against the Los Angeles Clippers; another round of Grind Prophecies.

I have made it clear that I am dreading this Clippers series. My stomach is turning, forehead burning, hands wringing. Thank God I have a small work shift between now and the game to occupy my time and brain. However, I am ready to get this thing going. We've speculated, we've examined, now it is time to see if this year's grit and grind Grizzlies will fair any better than last's.

Please check out today's game preview and game thread to chat it up with fellow Grizzly fans as well as some hopeless Clippers fans.

Let's catch up on April's Grind Prophecies results. If you check out the leader board from last month, you will see Kwhittington won in a landslide scoring in seven of the nine games. When you post four points in three different frames, you normally have a clear path to the title. So congratulations to the winner of a Mike Conley jersey and our new Grindiest Prophecier of Them All: Kwhittington.

Former GPoTA, Chris Faulkner, did not fair so well. Too much wedding planning I suppose. (I jest). With his title passed to a new torch-bearer, he has been relegated to "Former" status. He, like the rest of you, have a new chance to reach the pinnacle of GP status. For the playoffs, we have decided to wipe the slate clean, reset all the scores and introduce a new prize. Whomever finishes with the highest point total in the entirety of the playoffs (however long they may be) will win a replica jersey of the man you voted the Grizzlies' Grindmaster of the Year, Marc Gasol.

So good luck to you grinders, good luck to our Grizzlies and good luck to all of Memphis!
