Grizzlies vs. Bucks Game Thread (Nov. 7): Undefeated Bucks face big test

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Milwaukee Bucks (2-0) are undefeated in 2012, but things have never comes easy for the Bucks against Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and the Memphis Grizzlies. How will Milwaukee follow up its uneven performance in a dramatic over the Cavs on Saturday night?

How can you possibly follow up a spectacular buzzer-beating performance in a home opener? Brandon Jennings the Milwaukee Bucks will answer that question on Wednesday night when they take on Marc Gasol and the Memphis Grizzlies at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Everyone left the arena smiling on Saturday night, but Memphis is far more talented than the Cavaliers.

Gasol and Zach Randolph like playing against the Bucks. Gasol averages 15.4 points and 10.7 rebounds per game against Milwaukee in his career, while Randolph posts 17.1 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest. Larry Sanders has been very good in 2012, but can the lanky shot blocker hold up (and avoid foul trouble) against Memphis' bulky front line? The Bucks might need Samuel Dalembert to break out of his funk, turn up the defensive intensity and dominate on the glass. If Sam doesn't get off to a fast start, he might not be long for the starting center spot. That'd be good news for Larry Sanders fans, but it would be a less encouraging sign for those looking for a Fear The Deer redux -- Dalembert is someone the Bucks are relying upon to give solid minutes at center, and if he can't do it we might see more Joel Przybilla.
