UPDATE: Bruno is boldly going where no NBA team blog has gone before and using Cover It Live for his Inside the Game feature tonight. Bruno will be commenting in real time and you can offer him your thoughts, as well. Act civilized.


The Memphis Grizzlies are in town tonight with Lawrence North's Mike Conley running the point and running it well since Lionel Hollins took over as the head coach. Rudy Gay and O.J. Mayo are always a threat to go on a scoring binge, so the Pacers will have their hands full trying to keep them in check.

In late December, the Pacers did keep Gay and Mayo under control, but still lost one of many head-scratches this year. The Pacers will need T.J. Ford and Marquis Daniels tonight so hopefully their health has improved since Monday night.

Here are the Matchups.
