Memphis is starting to find their groove again.
The defense is stout. The Core Four is thriving. Vince Carter is a robot. The Grizzlies are 2-0 in the wake of the Chandler Parsons shutdown, and their first real test of "are they back?" is tonight against the Hawks.
For you see, the Hawks smoked Memphis last week. A 17-point thumping at the hands of Atlanta. Surely the Grizzlies have some personal pride, and even the most ardent Chandler Parsons supporters (me) have to admit the team looks better now that he is likely out for the season.
Will that make a difference tonight? Time will tell. But if Marc Gasol and Mike Conley play tonight the way that they did last night? I like the Grizzlies chances.
