The taste of revenge is oh so sweet. The Grizz pummeled the Nuggets at the Grinhouse, 99-69. The game was the first Grizz game televized on TNT this season. The Grizzlies avenged their worse loss of the season by winning by the largest margin of the season. Yes, revenge is sweet. Marc Gasol celebrated his 30th birthday and his team won by 30!

Grizzlies had six players is double figures. Zach Randolph lead the way with 15 points and 17 rebounds. Zbo had his 11th straight double double and 17th straight game with double digit rebounds. By the way, Zach Randolph can ball!!

The birthday boy, Marc Gasol finished with 10 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks. Gasol vs Nurkic didn’t fair well for Nurkic. He went 0-7 with 6 rebounds. Gasol even had a big block on him.
