West coast games are rough for fans of the Memphis Grizzlies.
These trips are hard on the Grizzlies themselves, of course. Time zones get crossed as often as defenders of Mike Conley over the course of a grueling regular season. In fact, Memphis makes one more trip out to California this season (not including playoffs), to Los Angeles this Sunday against the Lakers. From west coast time to central time to west coast time, all in the span of a week.
That is just one example of how tough it can be for an NBA player. But fans, who stay up late and deal with having to wake up for work the next day, also carry with them a bit of pride in enduring a tough regular season slate.
