Jazz Slap Hapless Griz, 118-94 

What happens when the NBA's highest-scoring offense meets the Grizzlies' "Bluff City" defense? Well, in Salt Lake City Saturday night it was all that Jazz all over Memphis. And it was all over early.

A sidenote: In the Flyer office, there's an interesting betting pool. Entrants have to predict which Memphis basketball team will win more games this season -- the Memphis Tigers or the Grizzlies. Early betting has the Tigers coming out on top. If things continue as they went for the Griz tonight, those bettors will be in the money.

Memphis reverted to last-season's NBA-worst-record form, and the Jazz, led by Carlos Boozer's 31 points, took advantage, coasting to an easy win.

Rudy Gay led the home-team in scoring with 18; Pau Gasol added a very un-AllStar-like 11. Check out all the depressing stats, recap, etc. here.
