Remember that aggressive version of Marc Gasol? Well, he's still hanging around, but he's backed off a touch in the past four games.

After averaging around 15 shots a game in the first five games and shooting over 53% from the field, Marc has backed down to taking around 11 shots and shooting under 40% in the past four contests.

Now, I'm not complaining about Marc Gasol. I'd still carry his children if they figure out a way to put a fake uterus inside me. But I like my Wendigo to be furious. Fury fuels his ability to devour souls.

And this is a part of my bigger picture for tonight: I want the Grizzlies to beat the hell out of a team for a change. Detroit is on their 4th game in 6 days, so this should be the Grizzlies prime chance to give the fans a dull, boring game where they build an early lead and lock in for an entire 48 minutes to destroy someone inside the Grindhouse.

Let's start the night off with a heavy dose of Marc Gasol. GNG
