It was an ugly game for the Grizzlies, who were without Rudy Gay (personal reasons), as they got blown out at home against the Clippers.
And while we can make a big deal about the Grizzlies not having Gay, the Clippers were without their best player, Chris Paul, who is suffering from a right kneecap contusion.
Eric Bledsoe started for the Clips, scoring 14 points with four assists in 28 minutes. It was a complete performance from the Clippers, who didn't play any one starter more than 28 minutes.
The Grizzlies were led by Zach Randolph who had yet another double-double, going for 15 points and 12 rebounds (he had 10 offensive rebounds!). Marc Gasol was bad, Mike Conley was even worse.
Imagine this, the Grizzlies had 24 offensive rebounds, but were blown out by 26 points.
They shot 30 percent from the floor and made just 6-of-20 threes.
The lone bright spot for the Grizzlies was that Tony Wroten played 14 minutes of garbage time, scoring 8 points on 2-of-7 shooting (yuck), with five rebounds, three assists and zero turnovers.
Really, there's not much to take from this game, save for the fact that Wroten got some minutes, and they finally found a way to stop Chris Paul! (Hooray?)
It's probably best to forget this one even happened, really.
