Grizzlies get beat at the buzzer 95-94 by the Mavericks

November 23rd, 2017

They deserved to lose. The Grizzlies came into this game losing five straight and looking to get back on the right track with a win against the Dallas Mavericks.

Chandler Parsons was having another good night with some post moves against a smaller Mavericks team. The defense from the Grizzlies was much better than it has been in previous games for the start... 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

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.
