Grizzlies 84 @ Phoenix 86

Not only did Jared Dudley kill the Grizzlies with free throws in the final minute of the game, he dominated Tony Allen in points. The Suns guards won the battle off of hustle and terrible shooting by the Grizzlies.

They have to bounce back at home and return to winning ways to be a factor in the West going forward.

Grizzlies in Game 19:
PlayereStatμ = mean difference
Mike Conley -6 μ = -4.649
Tony Allen -10 μ = -13.404
Rudy Gay +9μ = +5.211
Marreese Speights +6 μ = +0.912
Marc Gasol +5 μ = +7.386
6th (O.J. Mayo/Dante Cunningham) -4 μ = -5.842

Graphical chart of the above Average Differences:

The 5 weeks of NBA and 289 games have been played. Small-forward holds an edge over the power-forward. Shooting guard is a bit further behind after a terrific week5. Also in week 5 the center and point guard fell off the map and overall their contribution is low. The margin of victory by average has been going down each week.

Go Grizz!
