The Grizzlies may have dropped game two to the Spurs on Wednesday night but they proved something in that game; they proved that their game one victory was no fluke and that they could compete with the Spurs at full strength on their home floor. Even with Manu Ginobili making his return the Grizzlies were a few fourth quarter plays away from taking a 2-0 lead in the series.
With the scenery changing to Memphis tonight, expect a spirited performance from your Grizzlies tonight. Zach Randolph will no doubt have something to say about the egg he laid in game two and we all know how hyped the Memphis crowd gets when Randolph and Gasol are crashing the offensive boards. So long as Memphis' bench can outplay San Antonio's in this one - and they'll have the advantage being at home - the Grizzlies should have a 2-1 advantage by the end of the night.
