In Pro Hoops, I'd say right about NOW is the time for the Memphis Grizzlies to start showing improvement Defensively with a week and a half to go in the Pre-Season..
The Grizz started getting their offensive act together somewhat Wednesday night at FedExForum against the Atlanta Hawks..
Memphis shot 51% from the field...and fans got a reasonable taste of what to expect from Big Off-Season acquisition Zach Randolph with 18-points and 8 rebounds...
Fans can also expect Rookie Forward DeMarre Carroll to fill up the Stat Sheet with Hustle points, steals and assists..
But, the Grizz are giving up way to many easy baskets.
Atlanta scored 71 in the first half en route to a 111-96 victory.
Memphis next hosts the Detroit Pistons Saturday night at FedExForum.
