ESPN says Grizzlies #8 in Power Rankings this week

The Grizzlies are 22-15, in second place in their division, 11-0 when they score 100 points, and number 8 in this weeks ESPN power rankings. What Lionel Hollins has done with this team is truly astounding to me.
The Grizz had a great fourth quarter and came out with the win against the Pistons over the weekend, which makes it 4 straight wins, and 9 wins in their last 11 games. This team is getting hot, and besides the Thunder (maybe), should the Grizzlies be scared of any other team in the West? Especially if ZBo gets healthy, and makes a decent return, I wager the Grizzlies have a fighting chance against any of them.
Lionel and the Boys are in Oakland tonight to play Steph Curry, Monta Ellis and the 15-20 Golden State Warriors tonight at 9:30pm. Your NBA leader in steals, Mike Conley is going to have his hands full, but good thing Tony Allen is there to back him up. Look for this to be a close one...
