The Grizzlies are still a full game out of the picture, but could make up some ground with a win tonight. They'll have a very physical contest with the Bulls and need to utilize as much of their brains as possible so they can rest their braun for a home game in Memphis against the Bobcats tomorrow. Easier said then done, eh? The Grizzlies are making a steady habit out of taking on large, early point deficits that require massive amounts of energy and effort to combat - somewhere along the line they've got to start finding some easy wins.

Previews of games that will affect the Grizzlies playoff hopes tonight:

Recaps of games that affected the Grizzlies playoff hopes last night:

Final Score: Phoenix Suns roll over Thunder in second half, win wild one 128-122

The Suns came out tight, but eventually loosened up thanks to Gerald Green's career high 41 and Goran Dragic and Markieff Morris' dagger scores at the end to ice it.
