November 22nd, 2017

Mark and Joe talk about what is going on around the league. How have the Celtics won 16 straight and what is wrong with the Cavaliers.

Mark and Joe also talk about what ails the Grizzlies and how they can snap out of their 5 game losing funk. Marc Gasol has been playing like everyone wants him to and the Grizzlies still lose because other players have not held up their end of the deal. The guys... Read More

Don’t Stop Believing in the Memphis Grizzlies

November 21st, 2017

The night is darkest before the dawn. The Grizzlies will see the light. These are dark times indeed for the Memphis Grizzlies. A five-game losing streak, three of which came at home in FedExForum. A record of 2-8 in their last 10 contests. A hapless defense, a stumbling offense, a roster which has rarely, if ever, been healthy all season long, and a fan base asking whatever happened to their Grizzlies, who started the season so well at 5-1. If you listen to some media and fans, the end times are coming. But those calls are premature. With Thanksgiving approaching, it’s time to remind those whose... Read More

Report Card: Grizzlies Miss the Mark Against Portland

November 21st, 2017

The slide continues The game against the Blazers seemed like a microcosm of the Grizzlies’ season. When they were clicking, Memphis seemed unstoppable. They hit threes, defended and rebounded well, and spread the ball around. The bench was excellent. But they also struggled and the absence of floor general Mike Conley was apparent. As a team they shot a paltry 26.7% from downtown and were out-rebounded by Portland a staggering 71-41. Despite a strong second half and some big individual performances, Memphis’ comeback bid against the Blazers fell short. In this game, there was good, bad and... Read More

November 21st, 2017

The Grizzlies had lost four straight and came into this game looking to get back on track. Just when they thought they had gotten over the injury bug, it struck again with Brandan Wright going down with a groin injury. The Grizzlies came into the game with a new starting lineup, inclduing Chandler Parsons starting at small forward for the first time this year. The Grizzlies started off strong on offense, quickly getting out to a five point lead, but then the offense came to a halt mid-way through the second quarter. They were getting open looks, passing the ball well, and even shooting the ball... Read More

The Grizzlies’ Bench-mark of Success

November 20th, 2017

The chemistry of the Grizzlies’ second unit has been among the best in the league so far this season. Author Note: This article was written before Parsons was inserted into the starting lineup and the injury to Brandan Wright. However, all stats are updated through the Houston game. One of the main headlines for this Grizzlies team this season has been the dominant performance of its bench. The solid start for the Grizzlies and the bench’s success has been directly correlative so far. This points out two things, one of which could be concerning. First, it shows how deep this roster is.... Read More

View from the Enemy: Memphis vs Houston

November 19th, 2017

The point guard issues continue for the Grizzlies as the Rockets fans noticed Chalmers’ struggles Memphis collapsed defensively against Houston and lost its fourth game in a row. Despite a good run in the second quarter, the Grizzlies never managed to have the lead in this game. Before the game Mike Conley is out indefinitely. This figures to make Chris Paul’s comeback a little easier. Mario Chalmers, likely to start, has played well against the Rockets. Chris Paul had been put out of commission colliding with Mario Chalmers in our exhibition match. Coincidentally, I find Mario Chalmers... Read More

Report Card: Grizzlies fail badly against the Rockets

November 19th, 2017

The last meeting between these two teams this season did not go the Grizzlies way as they fall 105-83 to the Rockets. Once again, the Grizzlies matched up against the Houston Rockets.
