A fast start, especially through energetic defense like we saw earlier this week against the Spurs, would be an encouraging sign for this one, as would another strong outing from Mike Conley, who isn't opposing George Hill tonight. Chris Paul may be struggling, but he's still Chris freaking Paul. Some nights, that's enough for the Hornets. Hopefully tonight, the Grizzlies can match that and more.
The comments, pregame, in-game, post-game, they're all yours on this Friday night. And don't forget the whiskey; you'll need some whiskey.
