The Memphis Grizzlies travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls in their second game of the preseason.

Tonight, the Grizzlies head to Chicago to take on the Bulls in what will be their second -- but really first; Real Madrid? Really? -- preseason game of the season. And in honor of their efforts, I give you a nifty chart!

A few things to watch for tonight, in bullet format!

- Josh Selby's health.

- Tony Wroten's minutes, or lack thereof.

- Jerryd Bayless-Mike Conley sets.

- Rudy Gay's intensity.

- Our 3-point shooting, from the likes of Wayne Ellington and Bayless, to be specific.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Joakim Noah will play, after the loss of his grandmother. This will be his first preseason game, so we'll see how rusty he may be.

Again, in these preseason games you're looking for signs of improvement in certain areas -- for example it was great to see Z-Bo working on his high-post, low-post passing. We want to see the improvements in 3-point shooting and, really, offensive pace. Let's get out on the run, especially against this team who without Derrick Rose is really among one of the slower teams in the NBA.

Hey, let's open up the floor and talk some hoops!
