The Griz must have obtained some respect as they take only a small hit in the rankings after the two losses at home.  ZBo’s return is considered a great positive, in spite of losing his first game back.  Questions remain if ZBo and Rudy can play well together.  One guy raised the Grizzlies ranking.

What comments do you have ?  Where would you rank the Grizzlies at this point of the season and before this horrendous next 11 games, 9 of which are on the road?

Average ranking for the week is 7.91 a -1.6 fall (not including actual standings).  Covers Rankings updated later in week.

    After last night I think all these rankings deserve to be about 2-4 spots lower. That was just bad .. plain and simple. Maybe Arenas is a key locker room piece for us down the stretch … someone needs to kick these guys into gear.

    With all the forces healthy, I feel like the players think they can just walk out on the court and win without the grit-and-grind mentality that has led to their success. They will go nowhere with that attitude. I feel like Hollins will ultimately get the pieces working well together and get them to again embrace the grit-and-grind, defensive, Tony Allen-style.
