World Champion Mavs?

Oh boy, The Grizzlies are looking good after the All Star break. They kept the Mavs at bay for all four quarters, and pulled out the victory 96-85.
What I Liked Seeing:
-Dante Cunningham played some SICK minutes last night! He was in for 20 minutes and shot 5/6 from the floor with 10 points, 2 boards, 1 assist and 1 steal. His hustle was unmatched by any of the Maverick role players, and was pivotal in the victory.
-ZBo is close to coming back boys. He shot around for about 20 minutes before the game, and let me assure you, he still has his stroke. He made 85% of the warm up shots he took from 18-22 feet. It makes me very excited about him coming back. The Grizzlies will have the best front court in basketball, at least the deepest.
-Josh Selby was called back from the D-League, and actually looked like he learned something while down there. He averaged 22 points in 4 games, and when he got in with the big boys last night he didn't look confused like he had previously. If we can solidify the backup point guard position, the Grizz have a legit shot at the Western Conference.
-Divisional wins are ALWAYS good wins. Look out Toronto!
