Second, let me say this: WOW.
In regards to that last statement, the recipient of my all-caps sentiment is, obviously, Zach Randolph. He pretty much single-handidly took the team on his back and led them to a 108-98 overtime victory.
Randolph went for 38 points on 15-of-22 shooting, 22 rebounds and three blocks -- two of which came in overtime. It was a classic, beastly Z-Bo performance. The Grizzlies fought back to tie the Suns in a game that looked like it might have slipped away. They then went and outscored the Suns 14-4 in overtime.
Again, this one wasn't pretty, and I was way off in thinking the Grizzlies could "coast" here. This was a struggle game, indeed, and the Grizzlies shooting 4-of-19 from the 3-point line was a big part of that. Also, losing the turnover battle (19-16) wasn't very helpful. Just a game you don't want to take all that much from, unless, of course, you're Zach Randolph.
ZACH RANDOLPH: BEAST MODE!
Note: Kevin was at the game tonight and will have a complete diary up tomorrow morning.
