Memphis wins in Detroit

Wow, what a first half today in Detroit. The Grizzlies played inspired basketball in the first half. To go into Detroit who is a great defensive team and to score 57 points while only allowing 40 points was great. Detroit made some great adjustments in the second half to make a great comeback. They actually took a lead late in the 4'th quarter. Something that rarely ever happens lately is that Memphis didn't fold and lose the game when pressured in the last 3 minutes. I realise that the Pistons were missing a couple of players, but injuries occur all throughout the season.

Darko Milicic came out with a grudge and played a great game. In just 20 minutes, he had a double double with 12 points, 11 rebounds along with 3 assists and 1 block shot. Conley also had a great game scoring 20 points. He must cut down on the 7 turnovers that he had today, but most teams are as good defensively as Detroit is. For Detroit I was quite surprised with Kwame Brown. He played great with 13 rebounds, 5 steals and 6 points.

Today's game was an enjoyable game to watch and just hope that the Grizzlies learn from today's game. They must remember how they played team ball today. They played aggressively both on offense and defense. Come home and win tomorrow night and build a small winning streak.
