Memphis Grizzlies vs Detroit Pistons Home Opener Poll

Wednesday was a rough night, Griz Nation. How do you feel about taking on a lighter opponent at home in the cozy confines of the Grindhouse?

If there's anything we learned from the Griz' season opener, it's that this team is capable of digging itself into ridiculous holes and mustering enough pride to make a run at a comeback (and you're only just now learning this if you started watching the Grizzlies two days ago). But as we've discussed in the offseason, the Grizzlies need to be able to get off to consistent starts and not fall behind early on in games.

It's a lot more fun to watch the Grizzlies when they can use their reserve energy to solidify victories instead of conjure their probability. Dave Joerger will do his part to pace the game and monitor the momentum, but the Memphis starters need to come out on point to avoid some nasty discussions in the GameThread later.

What do you think tonight?
