No Zach Randolph. Already lost at home by 3 to the Thunder a couple weeks ago. We all know about the 7 game series in the playoffs last year.
Memphis is going to be the hungrier team tonight. We're still early but with the shortened season they really can't afford to continue to drop more games below .500. This Grizzlies team is still among the deepest in the league and I am confident that other players will step up in Randolph's absence. Rudy Gay is showing some good signs after a slow start but he doesn't need to carry the load. Guys like Mayo and Allen will play an important role tonight. I expect Memphis to get off to a fast start and not look back tonight.
Grizzlies +3 -108 (4x)
