The Indiana Pacers take on the Memphis Grizzlies tonight at the FedEx Forum, scene of one worst performances the Pacers had last year after Frank Vogel took over the team.

The Grizz will be without Marion's Zach Randolph this time around, plus the other candidate for "Worst game under Vogel last year" was at Minnesota and the Pacers did a pretty good job of wiping away that memory earlier this season.

There are some interesting matchups in this one with all-star centers in Hibbert and Gasol, all-star caliber forwards in Granger and Gay, cat quick points guards in Collison and Conley. Paul George has a length advantage over my man Q-Pond, while David West has veteran savvy to throw at the physical presence of Marreese Speights. Pacers will need to get in smash-mouth mode early.

Here is the preview. For a Memphis perspective, check out Straight Outta Vancouver. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
