GameThread: New Orleans Hornets at Memphis Grizzlies

I feel like I've watched this game 8 times this season. Even though the Hornets and Grizzlies only play each other 4 times every year, this year the two's matches have been stacked in the last couple months of the schedule.

So far the Grizzlies have lost two of three, but they really should be splitting against a team like this. The Hornets have been coming on strong lately, though, so it's reasonable to be worried. With Chris Paul back New Orleans should be even better than ever, and it's not like Marcus Thornton and Darren Collison have been getting any worse.

Hopefully Zach Randolph will be able to have a big night against the somewhat under-performing David West, and Rudy Gay's always strong against the Hornets. But ultimately the backcourt is going to have to step up and stop the Hornet's newly formed three-headed monster.
