They say third time is a charm, but in my case the fourth time was. I went to see my fourth NBA Memphis Grizzlies game this season -- they lost the first three. Tonight, however, they beat the Houston Rockets and their all-star center Yao Ming. The Grizz were clicking on all cylinders.
Everything goes better with mayo. O.J. Mayo, the rookie from Southern Cal, led the way with 32 points. Yes, I think he's a keeper.
I don't remember who sang the national anthem, but she was good. The attendance was announced at 10,109, but there sure were a lot of empty seats, as you can see in the above image.
The Houston Rockets won the tipoff.
Yao Ming (above) is 7'6" tall and strong looking -- no wonder, he weighs 310 pounds. If you click on the image to enlarge it, you can see the reflections of Brent Barry and Hakim Warrick in the paint.
Rookie out of Kansas Darrell Arthur slams one home for the Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies Dance Team performs.
The Junior Grizzlies Cheer and Dance Team also performed -- adorable.
