Tonight the Utah Jazz start off their amazing three games in three nights trip. Game 1 of the back-to-back-to-back is tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies. Tomorrow night the Jazz tip off against the New Orleans Hornets in Louisiana. The night after that? Final road game facing off against those darlings, the Oklahoma City Thunder. The rest of the week doesn't seem so hard in comparison when the Washington Wizards roll into down for the Guess the Game Score game of the Week. Don't worry, I made a map.
Can you believe only ONE of these teams is in the Eastern Conference?
Anyway, let's not get too head of ourselves -- tonight is the Grizzlies for Game 2 of our 3 game season series against them. We beat them last time at home, when they were playing without All-Star Zach Randolph, and serviceable reserve Darrell Arthur. This time around -- yep, they are both still out. That's fine with me because spectacular forward Rudy Gay and follicular center Marc Gasol will be enough.
This season the Jazz have been pretty bad on the road, and I don't expect things to change during this road trip. Memphis has lost 7 of their last 11 games. We're not exactly on a hot streak either right now. Something has to give. Old man Corbin may even play Alec Burks tonight? Naaaah . . . .
