It wasn't pretty, but the Griz got a win at home against the Derrick Rose-less Bulls tonight.
There's not any other way to say it: tonight's game was terrible to watch. Neither team could score (the Grizzlies shot 38% and the Bulls shot 37%) and even though they won by 9, four of the five Grizzlies starters (Rudy Gay, Tony Allen, Zach Randolph, and Mike Conley) had negative +/- numbers for the night.
We'll have a full recap and more analysis up in the morning, but for now, a new segment I'd like to call Straight Outta Haikuver:
Starters played like hot garbage
No one could score points
With tonight's win, the Grizzlies improved to 16-6 on the season.
