Memphis Grizzlies: After losing seven in a row, the Grizzlies could care less how their next win looks. "Now I want any kind of win," center Lorenzen Wright said in the Commercial Appeal. "I'll take an ugly win, a pretty win. Any kind." But it wasn't too long ago when the Griz were 15-10. "It's just not going our way right now," guard Mike Miller said. "Things are tough. We're competing and playing hard. It's strictly athletics and the main thing is that we have to stick together as a team and continue to win games like we used to."
New York Knicks: You didn't really think Isiah Thomas was going to stop with sending Clarence Weatherspoon to the Rockets for John Amaechi and Moochie Norris, did you? Next up is troubled player Leon Smith, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen this year. "We looked at him and had a chance to talk to him," said Thomas in the New York Post. "Later on down the road, we'll revisit it, but probably not in the next couple of days." To which head coach Don Chaney would only reply: "I think he has tremendous upside."
