I'm back from a bit of a hiatus and courtside at FedExForum where the Grizzlies will take on the Houston Rockets in about 20 minutes.
I missed a bad second-half meltdown against the Hornets and what was surely a thrilling win over the Lakers (probably the most significant Grizzlies home game that I wasn't in the building for), but I had a good excuse: My wife and I welcomed our second child and first son into the world. (His arrival roughly coincided with that meltdown against the Hornets, but I'll take no blame for that.)
I'll try to get into some broader team-related issues over the next couple of weeks, but for now I'm just going to dive into this game, a particularly important one against one of the Grizzlies' key competitors in the tight Western Conference playoff race.
Check back here later for a post-game report. In the meantime I'll chime in with occasional Twitter commentary during the game.
Let's do this.
