I will have the simulblog going during the game tonight.

* Neither team has played good defense this year. The Sonics rating is at 109 per 100 possessions and the Grizzlies are at 108. League average last season was 105

* Grizzlies have been terrible on the offensive glass getting just 26% of their rebounds. The Sonics defensive glass has slide from 71% last season, 15th in the NBA, to 61%.

* The Sonics have been committing turnovers on 22% of their possessions. However, the Grizzlies have not been forcing turnovers only at 14%. Last season the Grizz were 3rd in the NBA in forcing turnovers. This may be due to the new guards.

I think the reason most people don't like these stats is that they are a realy pain in the ass to track during a game. Personally, I don't want to sit in the game and go ok we have 60 shots and 15 Offensive rebounds and so that equals xx%.
