Grizzly Bear Blues Grind Prophecies: Rudy Tooty, Aim and Shooty

I think we can define that as a "disingenuous smile." - Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

Who's going to take the reigns for the Grizzlies tonight? After their game in Toronto in the preseason, Memphis may need help from several players tonight.

Considering what I had to watch on Monday, I wish I had extended my honeymoon vacation for another day or two. While Toronto won't provide us a very accurate measuring stick for the progress we need to see from the Griz, this is a game that absolutely no one inside FedexForum wants to lose tonight.

Rudy Gay or not, the Raptors are one of the few teams whose number the Grizzlies have when they're at home in Memphis, only losing two games to them inside FedexForum since 2004. I imagine, however, during those wins, the Grizzlies haven't played like the crap they've been playing like so far this season. We need to see the cerebral play of Conley and Gasol, along with the savvy veteran play from Prince, Randolph, Allen and Miller. Oh, and this would be a fantastic time for Ed Davis to shut the traps (at least partially) of all the haters here at GBB (myself included).

I'll post rules tonight and on Friday night, but from there on out you'll need to read them for yourselves.
