Memphis
New Orleans

[NEW ORLEANS] — The New Orleans Pelicans played host to the Memphis Grizzlies last night and Pellies fans will wish that they could have another crack at this one. The narrow 108-110 defeat was and still is a tough one to swallow. The loss bumps New Orleans's record down to 7-15 on the season, while the victory gives Memphis a 14-8 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Pelicans would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

Team results aside, a monster night from Marc Gasol is all that fans will be talking about as they process the contest. Gasol pumped out a stat line of 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals in 45 minutes on the night, quantifiable proof of his place among the top tier of NBA players. Most importantly, the Grizzlies managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Gasol keeps producing at this rate and Memphis keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though New Orleans didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Anthony Davis did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 28 points, 17 rebounds and 1 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

From a personal standpoint, Troy Daniels made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 7 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Pelicans can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though New Orleans wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the .
