Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol, the brothers once traded for each other, will do battle for the 11th time on Sunday night as the Los Angeles Lakers host the Memphis Grizzlies at Staples Center. Pau is four and a half years older than Marc, but by no means is Marc his little brother. Pau is listed at 7'0", 250 pounds, while brother Marc is 7'1", 265 pounds.
The two brothers got together for dinner on Saturday night, and hopefully they got all their conversations out of the way. Because they don't converse much when they play one another. "We don’t really talk about it," Pau told Dave McMenamin of ESPN LA. "We don’t talk about the game. We don’t talk during the game much. We’re just focused on trying to compete and trying to go at each other if we have the opportunity when we do."
It's not always fair to compare the two Gasol brothers to one another, since they don't always guard one another. Marc plays center for Memphis and figures to see an awful lot of Andrew Bynum on both ends of the floor. But here are their 10 matchups against one another, dating back to 2008.

Pau's Lakers have won seven of the 10 meetings, with Pau having the advantage in points and rebounds as well. Pau has outscored his brother in seven of 10 matchups, and has had more rebounds five times compared to four for Marc, with one even matchup in their first game against each other in 2008.
