  • This picture is from the Raptors game, but Ed Davis did a bunch of this against the Nuggets tonight.

IN commemoration of the Grizzlies' first 120-point game since January 21st, 2012: a sonnet.

When Johnson plays, the Grizzlies run the floor
With pace unseen when Tayshaun is checked in.
The chains of age have bound up greater men
Than our fair Prince, yet Joerger plays him more.
The question then: should Prince be shown the door?
To some fans Rudy's trade is still a sin
That will not be absolved until again
A Grizzly at small forward gives us more.

Hail Johnson, Leuer, Davis, hail them all:
These athletes, wearing Memphis on their chests—
A bench that runs and scores: An answered prayer!
The season's hopes have surely tak'n their fall,
And yet, while these reserves still give their best,
These Grizzlies give us reason still to care.

For you English nerds, this is Petrarchan, not Shakespearean.
