Utah Jazz won’t get my blessing. I don’t fell they’ve deserved my respect. I hope Luca or Kawhi will show them their place.

Heck of a season. The better team moves on, but man I'm proud of our guys. We should only get better here on out too.

There are times when I watch an 8 seed get creamed by a 1st seed and I think it's such a waste. Very little value in terms of learning experience when you have 4 blow outs in a sweep. In this case, I think Memphis got some great experience with the 2 wins and 5 losses this post season. 3 out of the 4 losses against Utah were well fought games that tested both teams. As a Jazz fan, it was a little worrying to lose game 1 after we blew a 3-1 lead in the 1st round last year, but now I think Utah was lucky to have a 1st round opponent push them like Memphis, as they should be better prepared for a battle in round 2.

Anyway, the future looks bright in Memphis. Congrats on finishing the season out strong.

Congrats to the jazz. Well deserved win. Hope they have our-former-conductor 100% healthy for the reminder of the po.

Very valuable series for the grizzs, including the play-in. Hope this little scars makes us better for the years to come!

Strong showing by the Grizz. Against any other team, I would have been rooting for them. Love the fight they show.

Ja is an amazing player. Once he gets some consistency from behind the arc, he'll be flat-out scary. His ability to get in the paint & finish is elite. Hoping he's a player who stays in Memphis for the long haul.

Long before this series (on other platforms) I've called Brooks one of the most underrated players in the league. He needs to learn to harness his intensity, but he's a really good 2-way player. I promise that Jazz fans would LOVE him on their team. The booing was an over-the-top playoff reaction, IMO. You're lucky to have him. (Y'all want to trade him to Utah? lol)

Jackson may be the difference between whether the current roster can take it to the next level. Lots of talent there. Hope he can put it together consistently.

4-1 may be the final score, but that was a really good series to show the Jazz they need to bring their A-game if they really expect to go far. Toughness hasn't always been the Jazz' strength, therefore that series was the perfect way to start what I hope is a deep run.

Wishing your Grizzlies luck in the upcoming years. Future is bright.

This is not just pleasantries. Hoping Jazz win it all this year.

It would mean Memphis faced the #1 seed, NBA champions in round 1 & were competitive. Good luck Jazz & fans, you have a great team & shot at it.

Memphis young players should be proud with how well they played & fought. Jazz are well built, well coached & more than capable to win it all.

This blow out loss on the road should leave a bad taste in this teams mouths going into next season.

It's a shame Memphis couldn't extend the series.. 3J was getting better by the game.

Favorite moment of the series was 3J taking Gobert off the bounce & dunking on him. Need to start putting these flashes of promise together.
