Pentacular: Memphis Grizzlies at Utah Jazz

The Grizzlies have won four in a row, but it's not going to be easy to win their fifth tonight.

Memphis is on the bad end of a back-to-back, the Jazz are notoriously unbeatable at home, and the Grizz were straight embarrassed during their last trip to Utah.

Ronnie Brewer smoked O.J. Mayo, he's big and athletic, unlike OJAM. Deron Williams could beat two Mike Conley's in a fight. Carlos Boozer and Zach Randolph might be the same exact player.

So it might come down to Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol's contributions tonight. Rudy missed the last game because of a funeral, but Marc had no excuse for his absence in the box score. Gasol barely even contributed against Mehmet Okur, not exactly the poster child for low-post defense.

Get heard in the comments thread and be sure to visit SLC Dunk and read up on "The Supposed Necessity of Trading, Part One," which has been one of my more comprehensive recent efforts.
