Quick Recap: Grizzlies Colonize 76ers 101-83

The Memphis Grizzlies took care of business at home, wiping out the Philadelphia 76ers 101-83 in a game that was basically over at halftime. If you stayed awake throughout that entire slaughtering, I applaud your effort! If not, here's three highlights to take away from it:

1) Vince Carter is Back! (Kind of)

On December 26th in a game against Houston Vince Carter scored 10 points in 23 minutes of action. It was his sixth game in a row scoring in double figures, and it looked like he was finally starting to get things going after his slow start to the season.

Well as we know that didn't happen at all, and tonight was the first time since that December 26th contest that Carter has reached double digits in the scoring column. It wasn't a perfect showing by any means — his 13 points came on 14 field goal attempts — but it was an encouraging sign that maybe he can still figure things out. Even if this was against the lowly Sixers.

2) Bob Thornton Takes No Prisoners

Hey assistant coach Bob Thornton! What do you guys need to do to hold onto this lead in the second half?

Oh... oh no. Those poor Sixers.

3) Kosta "DIkembe Mutombo" Koufos

Jerami Grant tried to dunk on Kosta Koufos. That's a rookie mistake.

Kosta knocked Grant to the floor, AND gave him the Mutombo finger wag. Maybe this is what Bob Thornton was talking about.
