A most improbable victory

The Memphis Commercial Appeal calls it one of the greatest regular-season wins in franchise history. And maybe it is. Consider that last night the Memphis Grizzlies were playing the second game of a back-to-back, a scenario in which they typically do not perform well. There were playing in Cleveland. The Cavaliers are in 1st place in the Eastern Conference. The Grizzlies had just played at home the night before and lost to the lowly Phoenix Suns. Memphis only dressed out  8 players for the Cavaliers’ game due to injuries and other ailments. Three starters were unavailable. It had all the makings of a throwaway game, a definite loss. But somehow the Grizzlies won, 106-103. That’s why you play the game.
