A Game of Runs: Grizzlies Stomp Brazil’s Flamengo, 112-72

Mike Conley had a quiet night, going 1-4 but dishing out seven assists. Hey, the shot he made was a 3-pointer anyway. . . They say that basketball is a game of runs, and this one seemed to prove the point. Emphatically. The Rio De Janerio Brazil Flamengo, fresh off a reasonably competitive game against the Orlando Magic, made their first three shots while the Grizzlies misfired early...

Mike Conley outplayed his counterpart Jeff Teague. Conley led the Grizz in scoring with 23 points. After back to back preseason losses to Milwaukee and Houston (yawn), the Grizzlies finally suited up in the home whites and played in front of the home crowd at FedExForum (also yawn). I suppose the downside of having a pretty good team like Memphis over the past few seasons is that...
