Both team had tough games on Friday night but the Grizzlies may be in worse shape despite playing at home. Marc Gasol left the game in Miami with an ankle injury and after the Grizz loss, left the arena in a walking boot making him questionable to play tonight. If Gasol can't go, I assume Kosta Koufous will join the starting lineup at center.
Memphis boast three former Indiana All-Stars with a backcourt of Mike Conley (Lawrence North) and Courtney Lee (Pike) playing along with Zach Randolph (Marion). If Gasol can't go, the Pacers will have to focus on all three of those guys. The monster matchup between Z-Bo and David West should be plenty entertaining and also ensure a physical game throughout.
Roy Hibbert has been trending in a positive direction over the past couple of games and will catch a break if Gasol can't go. Hopefully the lessons learned last night about efficient execution carry over for the Pacers as they try to win a big game on the road since...hmm, at Atlanta on Feb. 4? If not, then the win at Golden State on Jan. 20 was nice. Yeah, been awhile.
