Tony Allen will start for the Grizzlies against the Pacers

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Dave Joerger might be generous and forgiving to a fault, but he also knows when the pull the plug before things go dumpster fire. Chris Vernon is telling us that Tony Allen will be in the starting lineup tonight when the Memphis Grizzlies play the Indiana Pacers.

One would assume he's starting in place of Jeff Green and not in place of Courtney Lee. If Dave Joerger starts TA and Jeff Green together my head might explode.

This will obviously give the Grizzlies starting unit some spacing and shooting problems because Tony Allen is Tony Allen, but it will give the Grizzlies a better chance of winning the dang basketball game. Winning ugly is better than losing ugly.
