Tons of away games huh?

Well after dropping three straight on the west coast, the Grizzlies got a huge win against the L.A. Lakers on the shoulders of Tony Allen's sick defense on Kobe. Mike Brown (coach of the Lakers) benched Kobe for 5 of the last 7 minutes of the 4th quarter which made ole Kobe pretty mad. He was slamming his fist into the bench and yelling at everyone around him, which was pretty funny.
The Grizz came home for just one game before going out on the road again. In that game came another win against Kevin Love and the T-Wolves. The Grizzlies ending up shoot 0-11 from behind the arc, and Marc Gasol didn't play with a sore right ankle, but the good guys still came away with the much needed home win.
Next up for the Grizzlies is another away game against the Houston Rockets. In the past few meetings, the Rockets have had the Grizzlies number winning 10 of the past 11 meetings in Houston. This could spell trouble for the Grizzlies, but hopefully the team has turned a corner and will not let this game get past them without getting the win!
Grizzlies play the Rockets at 7:00pm (CST) Friday night, so don't forget to tune in!
