All The Analysis You Need


Attempt at Detailed Analysis


Second Attempt.

We suck, especially with Greg Monroe sitting out with a strained knee. Memphis does not.  That's about all I can muster at this point.

Players To Watch

Pistons: Joel Anthony

Our COTF exploded last game for 10 points and 5 rebounds.

Grizzlies: Zach Randolph

A homecoming for you Spartans fans to look forward to.
