The Memphis Grizzlies have an opportunity to end their first round series with the Portland Trail Blazers on the west coast this week. That possibility and a lot more were discussed on the latest episode of GBBLive! Listen to the archived podcast of the show on ITunes, in the player below or at BlogTalkRadio via this link.
Producer Chip Williams and myself held down the fort during the "Grizzly Bear News" segment with Chris Faulkner out, running down some of the great analysis and game coverage articles from grizzlybearblues.com this week and talking about the Grizzlies' two-game domination of the Portland Trail Blazers in Memphis since our last show. We were also joined by a special guest when we opened up the phone lines; listen to find out who it was!
Sam Tongue, Contributor over at Portland SB Nation site Blazer's Edge, came on the show in the second segment to talk the struggles of Damian Lillard and the fact that a hobbled Mike Conley is beating him regularly at this point. We also discussed Memphis' tendency to over-react to articles written about them, even ones intended to be funny.
Finally, Ben Hogan of 92.9 FM ESPN Memphis' "Eric Hassletine Show" returned to GBBLive and made a bold prediction about what we will be discussing on our next episode of GBBLive! He also talked about who has surprised and disappointed him so far in the series.
