While the Tigers have been picture of perfection this season, the Grizzlies have been equally dreadful. With just 14 wins at the all-star break, having 3 players in Friday night's rookie/sophmore all-star game is a testament to the hope they have for the future.
Rudy Gay playing for the Sophmore squad...going up against his teammates Mike Conley and Juan Carlos Navarro as All-Star weekend kicks off in the BIG EASY! Gay gets busy early...on the break...and isn't this pretty... Brandon Roy throwing it up and Gay throwin it down....yeah...he's warming up for the slam dunk competition Saturday night. Conley teaming up with Seattle's Kevin Durant for a flush of their own but the rookies were still down 14 at the half...Conley with 8 assists.
2nd half Gay...more dunking of the basketball this time from Cleveland's Daniel Gipson...Gay with 22 points. Navarro gets in the scoring column for the rookie with a steal and 3 pointer..he has 14! But Gipson reached the Buddha within... unconscious from outside with (11) 3-pointers! Gipson is the MVP with 33 points as the Sophmores get the win 136-109.
