Grizzlies-Blazers Game Post



Hey! I'm live at FedExForum — courtside in official mode for the first time in a long time.

The Grizzlies will try to go on a little two-game winning streak tonight following their upset win Sunday in Detroit.

Tonight, I'll be focusing almost exclusively on the four-man "core" of the team — O.J. Mayo, Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol, and Mike Conley. Though there are a few other players who matter, the Grizzlies looming offseason will be driven in large part by what the team feels they have in these four players and how they fit together.

I haven't written much about the team on the court lately, but will check in later tonight with a post-game that addresses these four players in addition to whatever other game-specific stuff seems necessary.

I'm not live-blogging this but, as always, feel free to pepper the comments section with conjecture, complaint, astute observation, and maybe the occasional haiku. I'll pop in occasionally if there's any action.
