As the Grizzlies work to find a 2013-14 team identity that will yield consistent wins and fan satisfaction, reminders that things can change in a heartbeat in the NBA rolled into town recently.
Last Saturday (Nov. 9th) former Grizz reserve big man Marreese Speights stepped in to the FedExFourm with his new team, the Golden State Warriors. On Wednesday, longtime Memphis star forward Rudy Gay returned with the Toronto Raptors.
The Grizz went 1-1 in those games. And while they looked good beating the Warriors (108-90), the outing against the Raptors was, well, a painful loss (103-87).
On Friday, Memphis begins a West Coast swing, going up against the L.A. Lakers.
