Burnt hair

The Memphis Grizzlies got singed by the Houston Rockets earlier this week. The bears, who never led the game, did manage to tie it up in the 3rd quarter as mike miller hit consecutive 3 pointers to tie it up at 45 but then Houston went on a run of 9 points decimating the scoreboard. This game was really about Shane Battier who was on the Grizzlies for 5 consecutive years but traded over the summer to Houston. He received a standing ovation in Memphis which was probably nice, but i think he might have enjoyed being victorious even more.

Grizzlies almost claw back

Isiah Thomas, who knows something about basketball, was talking about the one point victory his New York Knicks managed to survive with, after our season opener with them went into triple overtime. He said, “It was nothing we [the Knicks] did wrong. It was everything they did right. They were making shots and taking it to the rim.”

Way to go, Grizzlies! Losing by a point is hard, but when you were down by 19 in the 4th quarter…well, that puts things in a different perspective. So don’t beat yourselves up. (Just do practice those free throws!)
