  • Mike Miller had a season-high 19 points against the Knicks.

A stellar first half,
A second half of ugly:
Mike Miller still lives.

Mike Conley's ankle
An All Star break of healing
Hesistation moves.

Tayshaun guards Melo:
Johnson could not stop fouling
Five in twelve minutes.

Calathes assists
Five dimes in nineteen minutes
Such a great passer.

Too close for comfort
"A win is a win" is true
On to the Clippers.

In Other News...

• The next game the Grizzlies play—Friday night's home game against the Clippers—will take place after the trade deadline. We've really only seen one rumor pop up so far, but over the next day and a half you can rest assured that lots of phone calls are being made to and from the Grizzlies to kick the tires. More rumors will probably come. Don't panic.

• Supposedly—this is according to reports that circulated before Tuesday night's game—Tony Allen will be back in action on Friday night against the Clippers. While I'm not sure Chris Paul is a great opponent against whom to shake off the rust of not playing for so long, I hope Allen is back in action. Like it or not, he's still very much these Grizzlies' spirit animal.

• Phoenix beat Denver last night, but Dallas lost to Miami. Golden State plays the Kings tonight and the Rockets tomorrow. Plenty of opportunities for the Grizzlies to gain a little bit of ground on some playoff rivals if they can beat the Clippers Friday and the Bobcats in Charlotte on Saturday. As it stands, Golden State is 7th at 31-22 (11 games back of OKC), Dallas is 8th at 32-24 (also 11 games back) and Memphis is 9th at 30-23 (which puts them at 12 games back of OKC). Once you add Phoenix into the mix, the 6-9 seeds are separated by a game and a half. Things are tightening up.
