Grizzlies at Pacers Quick Recap: Griz look like a Bag of Ass

The Grizzlies were steamrolled by a hot Indiana Pacers team tonight, and it was never competitive after the first quarter. Memphis needs to check itself and take a long, hard look in the mirror after so many disparaging performances to start the season.

There's not much good to take away from this game. Absolutely nothing went right for the Grizzlies, again, but this time it looked especially awful. The Grizzlies couldn't sell their souls and buy a shot, and they played with emotional recklessness and a general lack of discipline in every aspect of the game. They allowed the usual Griz killers, George Hill and Luis Scola, to suck out any momentum that Memphis could muster.

Besides another complete lack of offensive competence, the Grizzlies showed little ability to combat the adversity that came their way. They were out rebounded through the entire game, couldn't get back on transition defense and featured a bizarre rotation of players that never matched up to the Pacers, who looked like the superior team in every facet tonight.

Up next for the Grizzlies is the return of Rudy Gay to FedexForum, his first homecoming since his blockbuster trade to Toronto last season. I hope the Griz show up to defend their court again their prodigal swingman, but at this point I wouldn't be surprised to see Rudy drop 30 and sink Memphis early in the game.

If the Grizzlies can figure out their rotations and offensive sets, we might start feeling better.
