The NBA season is a real grind. Here's some facts about the schedule of the Memphis Grizzlies the past nine games (including part II of the Fizdale Bowl tonight in Miami) to back it up-
- The Grizzlies have played these nine games over the course of 14 days.
- Memphis has been in a different city each game, including Memphis twice, but not for consecutive games.
That's quite a handful...and it doesn't get much easier until the schedule turns to December 1st and 3rd, when Memphis will finally get two games in a row. Considering the schedule the past two weeks, and the fact that tonight's game against the Heat is the second of a home and home back to back, it is certainly possible that minutes will be limited and legs will be tired. Something to watch for.
