When you go to the city of Las Vegas, do you ever really win? Gambling, drinking, and very little eating doesn't sound like a healthy win, right? The Memphis Grizzlies are looking to change those odds.
Going a strong (3-0) in the three preliminary games, the Grizzlies earned a first round bye for the tournament. Entering the Vegas tournament with 60-1 odds to win the championship, Memphis is looking to upset the Vegas system.
This team is very well constructed with play makers and young defensive specialist. Second year point guard Wade Baldwin IV hasn't changed his offensive game, consisting of straight line drives, and prayer shots, but he plays really good defense. Also, second year guard Wayne Selden Jr., has played both ends of the floor really well. Then, there is the tall tower defending the paint in second year Center Deyonta Davis. Offensive game has been inconsistent, but his defense, and rebounding have been consistently there.
The Grizzlies opponent tonight is the Phoenix Suns (2-2). The Suns coming in off of a big first round win against the Utah Jazz yesterday. With having a little over 24 hours to rehab the Suns will have their hands full with a quick, and defensive team in the Grizzlies.
You can catch the game on NBA TV tonight at 8:00 ET, and follow @blu3worldorder on twitter for live updates.

The Memphis Grizzlies summer league team, young and full of first year players showed out in day one against the Washington Wizards in Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon.
Wayne Selden Jr, in particular seemed to be the most consistent player on the court for both teams. Scoring 29 points, and hitting the game winning shot with 2.3 seconds left. The kid showed how it was done. Undrafted, I remind you, and a raw talent, Selden is slowing finding his niche in the NBA.
