Grizzly Bear Blues Grind Prophecies: Keep Lubing the Gears

The Griz had a day off to think about what they did right against the Warriors on Saturday night. Will the start to the week look fluid and smooth? Or will the Grizzlies slam on the brakes?

I'm going to be an honest managing editor and let everyone know that I missed the past two games while I was honeymooning in eastern Tennessee. I hear that I missed the worst of times and the best of times. I'm hoping that my viewing return to the Grizzlies has me seeing something in between with a victory at the conclusion. Something of a, how you say, in the words of my uncle, Grit and Grind win.

I'll post these basic rules for another couple editions, but after that you'll need to refer to the official rules for info on the Grind Prophecies (or you can email me.)

Grind Prophecies 2013-14 November Rules

  • Four questions, based on performances during the game, are posed for each Grizzlies game.
  • Post your answers (use corresponding numbers) in the comment section below to enter.
  • For each question, the scoring possibilities will be explained.
  • The "Grindmaster" category will be subjectively awarded by the GBB staff.

This month's winner of the Grind Prophecies (largest point total at the conclusion of Grizzlies vs Nets on Nov 30th, 2013) will be awarded an Adidas Memphis Grizzlies Revolution 30 Replica Jersey! Since this is the 2013-14 debut of the Grind Prophecies, we will let this month's winner choose the player, color (home, road or alternate) and the size, obviously.

The Grindmaster from the last edition of Grind Prophecies (vs Pelicans) was Mike Conley.

  1. Game Score and Winner (correct predictions receive 3 points, if no correct predictions, 1 point awarded to member(s) with closest differential)
  2. The Grindmaster (3 points awarded to correct predictions; if Grindmaster title is split between 2 players, 2 points go to each member who predicted either player)
  3. Combined total of Mike Conley's steals and assists (3 points awarded to correct predictions; if no correct answers, 1 point awarded to member(s) who are closest without going over)
  4. Which will player log more playing time, Ed Davis or Jon Leuer? (3 points awarded to correct predictions; zero points awarded for incorrect predictions.)
