I Will Make No Such Apology

Last night's Grizz game? First off, it was a great win. When you the win games that you aren't supposed to, it's like found money. It's like they stole something and got away with it last night.

It's too bad that Memphis lost that Portland game that we had NO BUSINESS losing. The Grizz could be 3-3. That's how close it is. So maybe there is hope for this team, which is pretty crazy since I was all about ready to just throw in the towel.

But you can't continue to lose those Portland-type games. If Memphis is ever supposed to win a game, they HAVE TO win it. There isn't enough wiggle room for this team to lay down on any night, if they want a shot at the playoffs.

Which leads me to wonder - now that we are 1/14th in, what are the goals of this team? We can see how close we are to being .500, but we are only that close because of a better than average night against the Rockets. Otherwise, it'd be 1-5, and we'd be throwing in the towel.

So I guess what I'm asking the Grizzlies coaches, players, and management is: what is the real goal this season?
