New Orleans vs Memphis

The Memphis Grizzlies will be visiting the New Orleans Arena tonight. I don't know that there's much to say about this game. New Orleans has a 2-1 lead on the season series thus far, and I'd be very surprised if it doesn't turn into a 3-1 series win. The one loss was mostly the result of Chris Paul, David West and Tyson Chandler all being sidelined. How good do you think Boston would play without Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen? Would that team lose to Memphis? I think that yes, they probably would. That said, our star-less Hornets put up a good fight and only lost by a few points in what was one of the ugliest games I've ever seen.

Now of course Memphis could find a way to win tonight... it's entirely possible. I don't think that will happen though. The Hornets will win this, and what I'm hoping is that Chris Paul doesn't have to play more than 35 minutes to ensure that victory. If Mo Pete and the rest of the reserves can play like they did against Minnesota, then Chris Paul (along with David West and Rasual Butler) having an easy night is also entirely possible. Come on New Orleans, let's put em away early.

One last note: please participate in my poll on the right, and if you'd like to comment on the subject of annoying fans do that here. Let's make fun of other teams and the people who like them!
