It’s actually harder to write a recap after a game like this. They Cavs played so well, and the Grizzlies looked so out of it that there is hardly anything to discuss. It would be nit-picking to try and find negatives . Let’s look at a few numbers-
6- As in six wins in a row without Mo and Delonte both in the lineup. This was the game that I thought we might not extend the streak.
