There are no moral victories in the NBA. ; Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said so himself. ; If there were, Sunday's 133-123 loss at Denver would have qualified. ; The 10-point final margin is a bit misleading because the Grizzlies led by ;five after the opening quarter and hung around for much of the game. ; The Grizzlies put up 40 points in the first quarter on 77 percent shooting, which at least ensured they would not ;start out ;flat on the road as they ;did so many times last season. ; They shot the ball extremely well, finishing at 57.8% for the game. ; Offense is not the problem. ; What has hurt them in their first two losses is turnovers. ; They gave the ball away 20 times on Sunday and 14 times in their opener against Detroit, robbing themselves of chances to build runs. ; With the way they are shooting the ball right now, if they maximized their possessions, they could be undefeated or at least have played Detroit closer. ; Against the Nuggets, the Grizzlies just didn't play enough defense to win. ; The Nuggets weren't a whole lot better defensively, but the extra possessions they got allowed them to stay just far enough ahead of the Grizzlies to claim the win.
