Griz-Suns Game Post



Alright. I'm courtside at FedExForum where the Grizzlies will host the Phoenix Suns on national television in about half an hour.

The building is overrun with people from the TNT network, including former Grizzlies coach Mike Fratello, who will be doing color commentary on the broadcast.

I got here today in time to see the second half of the high school in which Melrose beat Germantown behind a big game from junior Adonis Thomas, who looked like a boy among men despite the presence of numerous seniors heading to D-1 colleges.

And I just got back from the Martin Luther King Day Symposium, where Alonzo Mourning and Oscar Robertson were honored.

I'll have notes on all this in my post-game report later tonight. But first, the Grizzlies, winners of eight straight home games, will try to move to 22-18 over a Phoenix Suns team that has lost all three games on its current road trip heading into today.

Let's do this.
