Whew, what a game. It was about as pretty as the game in Milwaukee last night, but the Grizzlies made some clutch plays at the end of the game to just barely finish off the Kings.

The Grizzlies regained their leash control over Rudy Gay, and while he had a great night statistically, Memphis completely took him over in crunch time when the ball always goes Rudy's way.

Whereas we've recently seen the bench takeover momentum and provide an advantage for the Grizzlies, it was the starters, led by Mike Conley (statistically) and Marc Gasol (fundamentally), that brought the Grizzlies out of a brick-filled funk in the 4th Q.
