The Griz lost to the Spurs on Wednesday night,
but Memphis had five players who were out.
Though youth and hunger they brought to the fight,
their offense—nothing to write home about.
This season moral vict'ries are the norm,
but last night fell short even in that way.
Some nights they never cohere, never form
into a thing resembling winning play.
One cannot yet say if they'll truly tank,
or whether winning's clarion call's too strong,
but even if by accident, they stank
for forty-some-odd minutes. That's too long.
     When Tyreke leaves town at the deadline's bell,
     the Grizzlies' record truly goes to hell.
