    Wall Street Journal:
    Jared Diamond: The Grizzlies' Starch Madness


    At some point during the Memphis Grizzlies' home game against the Denver Nuggets
    on Saturday, one lucky fan will stand at half court and heave up a prayer for a chance
    to win a prize. This alone isn't particularly newsworthy. After all, nearly two-thirds of
    NBA teams are running a similar promotion this season.


    But the Grizzlies contest stands alone in one unusual—and tasty—way. If the fan
    makes the shot in Memphis, he won't receive a giant check or a fabulous new car.
    Instead, he'll receive Tater Tots. Lots and lots of Tater Tots.

    The Grizzlies' contest is sponsored by Sonic Drive-In, which agreed to award a lifetime
    supply of Tater Tots to any fan that hits the shot.

    Jason Potter, the Grizzlies' director of promotions and event presentation, said the
    winner would receive the equivalent of one coupon per week for a medium order of
    Tater Tots. Potter added he had a giant box of coupons sitting in an office, in case
    somebody hits the miracle shot. In addition, everybody in the stands would receive
    one free order just for cheering.

    Cash is the most typical reward for making a half-court shot, with prizes ranging
    from $1,000 in Utah to $77,777 in Phoenix. In Oklahoma City, the winner gets
    $20,000—and $100 just for hitting the rim or backboard.

    So what's the true value of hitting a half-court shot at a Grizzlies game?

    Factoring in the cost of a medium order of tots at a Memphis-area Sonic restaurant
    ($1.69 plus tax), a 30-year-old fan who lives another 50 years would get $4,628 in
    free Tater Tots. (Ketchup not included.)

    Might want to fix the title, it currently says Hawks instead of Grizzles.

    This is a great matchup. I've said before how I believe the Pacers and Grizzlies are extremely similar to each other.

    The matchup I'm looking forward to seeing the most is Paul vs. Rudy. I look at Paul and I see a lot of Rudy Gay in him and vise versa. Both guys have their advantages in the stats, but as far as how both play, they look similar.

    Also DWest vs. ZBo should be very interesting. Both guys who play the post and step out for open shots.

    The PG matchup will be exciting as well as the center matchup. Hopefully Roy turns it around this time.

    Overall a great matchup, but the Grizzlies have been known to beat us very often. We haven't beaten them since 08-09.

    It's a great match up in general.

    Hibbert vs Gasol

    West vs Z-Bo

    Paul George vs Rudy Gay

    George Hill vs Michael Conley

    It will be a great match

    I'm just sad that I'll be forced to miss the 2nd half due to the festivities

    @ScottAgness: George Hill is a game-time decision for today's game (strained right thigh), but will likely give it a shot. Stephenson & Young are fine.

    @1070Bruno: George Hill still listed as the starter at PG but not not on the court for pregame warmups. Aggravated thigh contusion late in Atl loss.

    @MikeWellsNBA: Hill's on the court having his right groin worked on. Pacers face a significant uphill battle vs the Griz w/o him this afternoon.

    I'm really hoping for a win today more than usual for two reasons.

    1. It'll make the New Year's Eve Party that much better

    2. The loss to the Hawks still isn't settling well with me. I don't like losing to a team consecutively when I don't understand the match-up issue.

    Ps. I'm not going to lie, I popped in Captain America for about 10 minutes until I received a text from my girlfriend reminding me of the game start time.

    Man, Lance definitely ranks in my top 5 Pacers hated players I wish I had not hated. Love that guy.
