A look at the Grizzlies frontcourt
Gay is averaging 21.5 points and Gasol has posted 20.5 points per game on 58-percent shooting. Randolph's shooting is off at 40 percent. But the veteran big man is second in the NBA with 15 rebounds per game and appears content with mainly working the offensive boards.
So while the rest of the NBA focuses on Dwight Howard joining forces with Pau Gasol and Ron Artest on the Los Angeles Lakers, the Griz frontcourt plans to not-so-quietly establish itself as the Western Conference force.
"When we play like this it's going to be tough for teams," Randolph said. "We're sharing the ball, playing good defense and helping each other. It's what we're about."
