Haiku Recap: Blazers 105, Grizzlies 98

This is Zach Randolph/Z-Bo scored 21 points/This is a haiku

Rather than the frustrated rant I originally had in mind after last night's ill-timed loss in Portland, I decided to express myself through the power of poetry. A haiku for each point by which the Grizzlies lost:

1.

The defense has left—
Soft interior is like
Reese's Easter Egg.

2.

Tonight in Denver
The legs will feel the tired weight
Futile comeback push.

3.

A five man lineup
None have ever seen before—
A grasping at straws.

4.

Clinging to playoffs
Is like clinging to all things:
Harder than it seems.

5.

Z-Bo on defense:
Collapse of a great fortress
Anyone may pass.

6.

Five games on the road
Treacherous places to play
Season on the brink.

7.

November Grizzlies
Cannot be the March Grizzlies
Or no May Grizzlies.
