Managing The Memphis Playoffs: How to Take Memphis to The Playoffs This Season

Last night's 104-85 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center was a huge stepping stone for the Memphis Grizzlies. While everyone wants to talk about how bad the Lakers looked and speculate as to why Los Angeles is no longer playing championship level basketball, I am interested in why Memphis isn't playing like this more often and solidifying themselves as a playoff team out West. I'm not sure if I should look at Memphis as a 15-19 team who is currently last place in the Northwest Division, an astounding 14.5 games behind San Antonio or if I should look at the Grizzlies as the team that has beaten Los Angeles twice (including at LA), won at Dallas, and beat the Miami Heat. The Grizzlies have a lot of young talent and two legitimate stars with Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph, I think they should finish as the 7 or 8 seed out West and this is how they can get there.
