It's great to be a Grizzlie right now. They're winning and they have the stats to back it up. Coming into tonights game against the Hornets, ESPN has them ranked 3rd in the power rankings. Mike Fratello's team is allowing a league low 85 points per game. They better that Tuesday night with a 89-73 win for their 6th straight. They're forcing a lot of turnovers, Damon Stoudamire got the scoring going off one, knocking down a jumper.
Offensively they're doing it inside and out...Mike Miller to the rack like cat and when Bobby Jackson knocks down his 2nd 3 in the 2nd quarter, Memphis opened up a 6 point lead and didn't look back. (21 points for Jackson) Pau Gasol continues to torch opponents with an array of nifty moves in the post, he had a game high 29 points and 15 rebounds.
Tey'll go for their 7th straight Friday night at FedExForum against the Dallas Mavericks.
