Why do I get the feeling that this is a beatdown waiting to happen?

The Memphis Grizzlies are in TO tonight to face the Toronto Raptors and I'm getting the feeling that this one could get ugly. The Grizz are coming off two very strong wins, first over the Philadelphia 76ers prior to the All-Star break, then, following that up immediately after the All-Star reprieve, by beating the defending champion Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday evening.

The two wins gives them eight W's in their last 10 matches, so again, not a good sign for the Dinos.

Perhaps Toronto can take some solace in the fact that Memphis hasn't been great on the road (losing six of eight and averaging only about 91 points a match), and that stud power forward Zach Randolph is still on the DL, but the bottom line is that it's going to take a full team effort tonight from Toronto to get a win.

And um...maybe not get down 12 after the first quarter?
