The Memphis Grizzlies did their best to curb the appetite of starving fans in their 92 to 89, pre-season opening win against the Houston Rockets. 12,826 fans were able to see the debut of newcomers Matt Barnes and Brandan Wright as they showed flashes of what they will be bringing to the team this season.
