Grizz Welcome Atkins/Lose at Heat

Forget trying to work new Grizzlies Point guard Chucky Atkins in easily..

He's called on Early as the Grizz try to Beat the Heat in Miami..

Atkins just signed on Monday, worked out yesterday..and figured he'd have some time to watch before taking the court..

Not so..

Grizz Starter Bobby Jackson, who spent the first quarter lighting up the Heat from downtown early..goes hard to the floor on loose ball scramble before Miami fans get settled in their seats..

In comes Chucky..and it's off to the races for Memphis..

He cans his first jumper..a 3...

Leads the Grizzlies on the Fast Break..for 2 and a Jam..

And Hits the Runner in lane for a Great Debut..

Mike Miller off the Bench goes Downtown and Down Home with Authority..

But, it's too much Shaq Diesel and Dwyane Wade in this one.

25-for Wade.. 20-and-15 for O'Neal..

Grizzlies fall 94-82.

Memphis Back Home vs Minnesota Wednesday, 8pm Tip at FedExForum.
