GameThread: Utah Jazz vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Boy do we need this win... especially with the Utah Jazz on our tail, 2 games behind us for the final spot in the Western Conference playoffs. It's not only that we need to win this game, for obvious reasons, but there are also some not-so-obvious reasons why we need this game.

First, we're at home, where winable games need to be won. Second, we're about to embark on a 3-game set against three of the best teams in the league (two of which are road games) -- @Boston, @Chicago, vs. San Antonio. If there was ever a moment where we need to be at our absolute best, it's now. Finally, we need to win this game because we're selfish and we hate losing. If that's not reason enough...

Paul Millsap is back for the Jazz, so there's no Zach Randolph toying with rookie Derrick Favors in the paint like he did with Tyler Hansbrough on Saturday night.

Let's get loud and start talking about our Grizzlies.
