Well, all it took to beat the Melo-less Knicks on Wednesday was some hot shooting by the Nets. The Grizzlies are a decent defensive team, and even without Mike Conley Jr., they present some tough match-ups for New York. Soooooo I hope the Knicks defend a lot better and get some regular scoring from multiple people, not just Derrick Williams.
Other things! Instead of starting Lance Thomas, Derek Fisher will go small-ish:

And yeah, Matt Barnes is playing. He has tried everything in his power to make the entire pre-game news cycle about him and Fisher (and the news media have been more than happy to oblige!), and I wouldn't be surprised if he tries some dumb shit on the court. Hope not.
Tip-off tonight in Memphis is at 8 PM. This is your game thread. This is Grizzly Bear Blues. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in this thread. Please be kind and respectful to all. Go the Knicks!
