Recap: Grizz dethrone Kings, 106-88

January 20th, 2018

The Grizzlies extend their winning streak to three games on Zach Randolph’s homecoming. The Grizzlies took on the Sacramento Kings on Friday night. Undeniably, the most important part of this game was the homecoming of the Memphis faithful Zach Randolph, and to a lesser degree Vince Carter. This game brought back memories of success and triumph in years past, but alas there was a game to be played. Thank you for believing in the color of our collars. For embodying the soul of a city. And for never bluffing. All Memphis all heart. #50Forever — Memphis Grizzlies... Read More

Zach Randolph: The memory remains

January 19th, 2018

The Memphis Grizzlies miss Z-Bo. But the breakup needed to happen. Tonight in Memphis, Tennessee, there is going to be quite the celebration. One of the city’s greatest adopted sons is coming home. Zach Randolph, who left Memphis and their Grizzlies in free agency this past summer, will be back on the hardwood of FedExForum. Many fans have been looking forward to this opportunity to thank Zach for all he’s done for the Grizzlies, and the city of Memphis at large, since he signed his 2-year $24 million contract with the Sacramento Kings. His contributions to building both a winning culture... Read More

Report Card: Memphis holds on against New York 105-99

January 18th, 2018

Back-to-back wins for the Grizzlies, as they take down the Knicks It was a full team effort from the Baby Grizz in this one. Memphis had to face the New York Knicks Wednesday night without pretty much half their roster- Marc Gasol, Brandan Wright, and Chandler Parsons (and of course Mike Conley). However, the Grizzlies pulled out a promising win 105-99 and won back-to-back games first time in a while. Memphis called on the bench to help out as all Grizzlies scored in the game. Of course, led by Tyreke Evans and his 23-6-10 night. The game ended on a hilarious flop by Dillon Brooks to get Courtney... Read More

Grizzlies upset the Knicks 105-99

January 18th, 2018

No Gasol? No problem. In a game where they led by as many as 18 and nearly let it slip away, the Memphis Grizzlies found a way to hold their ground and pull of a victory over the New York Knicks. On a night where Mike Conley, Chandler Parsons, Brandan Wright, and Marc Gasol were all out for Memphis, it was the young Grizzlies (led by Tyreke Evans) who got the job done. Memphis has now won consecutive games for the first time since October 26th-28th. A few quick takeaways from this nice win, made nicer by the fact that another bad team in the Atlanta Hawks also lost. Tyreke Evans, man. If Memphis... Read More

SB Nation NBA Trade Deadline Primer: Memphis Grizzlies

January 17th, 2018

There’s a lot going on…or nothing at all. You may or may not have known this…but the NBA Trade Deadline is rapidly approaching. Three weeks from this Thursday teams will be furiously working their phones, trying to gauge interest in bad contracts and supposed “assets”. Some fringe playoff teams will try to improve their odds, and then some teams will try to get as many young pieces and draft picks as possible as they sell their present in the hopes of a brighter future. Or, nothing will happen. This thing is a crap shoot. What will the Memphis Grizzlies do? We here at GBB take... Read More

JaMychal Green is back…kinda

January 17th, 2018

Oh hey, remember this guy? He is back to form, for now. JaMychal Green spent much of his 2017 offseason under the radar. The Memphis Grizzlies fan base was left with nothing more than speculation about Green’s eventual landing spot in the NBA, and apparently so was JaMychal himself. After a 2016-17 season that was an breakthrough of sorts for the underrated power forward out of the University of Alabama, Green was seeking a large-ish long-term deal to solidify his place in today’s NBA. I think I speak for the whole of Memphis’ fans when I say we wanted JaMychal back. His role on this team... Read More
