Post Game Thoughts on the Grizzlies Loss to the Spurs

I liked the way the Grizzlies looked tonight against the Spurs. They lost, but they kept it close despite relentless attempts by the more talented Spurs to put them away.

Also, I have to give credit to Darko Milicic and Mike Conley. If each player can play like they did against the Spurs consistently, they'll be solid players for the Grizzlies.

I appreciated that Coach Marc Iavaroni kept Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo in the game for extended minutes instead of going with the regular rotation. The bench looked pretty bad, and Mayo and Gay kept the team in the game.

Finally, one last note: OJ Mayo will score 40+ in a game this season.  Watch for it. It will happen.
