Grizzlies Roar

Grizz have blasted the Wolves at home after sneaking a win by the Mavericks on the road. OJ Mayo is reawakened. Darrell Arthur is filling some big shoes. Marc Gasol is back in black and blue.

The team travels to the city of devils in California for an NBA TV game at the Staples. It's always nice seeing the Gasol brothers going head to head.

When a player goes down the silver lining is that it creates an opportunity for others to step up. The Grizzlies were said to have overachieved last season. In order to meet the mild expectations of some, and reach a playoff birth this season, they will have to overachieve again.

No one is saying they are "young" anymore though. It's an exciting time in this upcoming 4 game road trip out West. Do the players on this squad have what it takes to go 50/50 against the NBA elite and continue to manhandle inferior competition such as the Wolves?

My other biggest concern is how General Greivis and the X-Man settle into their roles. Do they ace it? Do they flail around? Or do they fail?
