Coach Dave Joerger knows a championship team isn’t built in a year. The Memphis Grizzlies have been a force in the West for each of the last five seasons, but they’ve been unable to break through and get past the Conference Finals in their relatively short history as a franchise. Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph will both return to lead the gritty Grizzlies once again in 2015-16, as the defensive-minded squad seeks to build on last year’s second-place finish in what’s sure to be another competitive Southwest Division. Memphis Grizzlies tickets are on sale now for home games at the FedEx Forum in Memphis—better known by fans and foes around the league as The Grindhouse.

Memphis Grizzlies 2015-2016 News and Updates
1/27/16 - The Memphis Grizzlies broke their four game winning streak with a loss against the Timberwolves on the 23. Since then, they have won their next two games. They played the Magic on the 25 in a game that went into overtime. It was a back and forth game, and it looked like it might go to the Magic after they had a late 9-0 run during regulation. However, the Grizzlies fought back and Jeff Green scored one of his season-high 30 points with 1.3 seconds left to tie the game and send it into overtime. The defense kept the Magic from scoring all but one shot in the overtime to win. The Grizzlies next play the Kings, and tickets are available for $13 and up.
1/20/16 - The Memphis Grizzlies have won their last three games in a row. Their last victory was against the Pelicans on Monday, January 18. It was a close one, with a final score of 101-99. Multiple players tied for the top scoring position with 16 points (Marc Gasol, Jeff Green, and Matt Barnes), demonstrating this victory was truly a team effort. Gasol also had 10 assists for a double-double. Throughout the game, there was a tool of 18 changes in the leader as well as 14 times the score was tied. The Grizzlies will look to continue their winning streak when they head to Denver to pay the Nuggets on the 21. You can still get tickets, for prices starting at just $10.
1/13/16 - After winning two in a row, the Memphis Grizzlies lost to the Rockets on January 12. However, they came back on the 14 to beat the Pistons in a close game. The Pistons were ahead in the first quarter, but then the Grizzlies found their groove and went into the locker room at the half ahead by 5 points. They outscored the Pistons in the third quarter, but then the Pistons took back control. A last-second jumper by Mario Chalmers clinched the 103-101 victory. Chalmers led the team with 25 pints and also had 8 assists. The Grizzlies host the Knicks on the 16 and the Pelicans on the 18. You can still get tickets, with prices starting at $22.
1/6/16 - While the Memphis Grizzlies were dominating last week, they have been struggling slightly now that they are on the road. They have only won one of their three away matches in this series. It was when they took on the Portland Trail Blazers on January 4th. While it is their only victory, it was a particularly strong win, with the final score coming to 91-78. There is good news, however, because the Grizzlies are now ready to return to Memphis and start dominating once again. First up, they will be hosting the Denver Nuggets on January 8th, followed by the Boston Celtics on the 10th. Tickets for the latter matchup are available starting at $5.
12/30/15 - After a pair of disappointing road losses, the Memphis Grizzlies have rebounded with consecutive W’s at home. The Lakers fell to the Grizz 112-96 before Marc Gasol and company finished off Miami 99-90. They’ll enjoy a few days off before returning to action in 2016, starting with the Utah Jazz on January 2nd. At 18-16, the Grizzles are in the middle of the Western Conference pack with the potential to jump or fall in the standings with a few key wins or losses. Can they start the new year off on the right foot? Get your tickets for Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City to find out firsthand! Seats start at just $17!
12/16/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies hosted the Washington Wizards on December 14th and came away with a strong 95-112 victory. The Grizzlies were on a short losing streak, so it is good that they were able to break it before hitting the road. From here, they are going to be playing mostly away matches, only returning briefly on December 19th to face the Indiana Pacers. Tickets for that match start at just $10. Afterward, they will not return until December 27th, more than a week later. The Pacers matchup is your best opportunity to catch the Grizzlies in action. Be sure to come out and show your support before their long trek on other teams’ courts.
12/9/15 - Memphis Grizzlies won a close game against the Pistons on December 9. The game came down to the final seconds, when Matt Barns threw a desperate half court shot with just over a second left to play and made the 3-pointer to bring the Grizzlies ahead 93-92. Zach Randolph was the leading scorer with 21 points and also grabbed 16 rebounds. Marc Gasol helped out with 19 points, including a free throw with 29 seconds left that helped to get the team within two points. The Grizzlies will look to add another win to their 13-10 record when they host the Hornets on December 11. Tickets remain available, with prices as low as $7.
12/2/15 - The Gasol’s are tearing up the court, but are just on opposing teams this season. Mac Gasol, of the Memphis Grizzlies, was the star of the show when the team took on the New Orleans Pelicans on December 1. He scored a career high of 38 points and to top it off he was able to rebound the ball 13 times and get in four blocks. This was a breakthrough moment for Gasol, since in the last five games he hasn’t been able to score in the double digits. His aggressive and on-point offense against the Pelicans definitely was a contributor to the 113-104 win. Watch them play live when you get your tickets for their upcoming game against the Phoenix Suns on December 6.
11/25/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies extended their winning streak to four games when they beat the Rockets on November 20. Mike Conley led the team with 26 points, and Marc Gasol helped the offense with 16 points, 11 assists, and 11 rebounds. The Grizzlies had a 20-point lead in the third quarter, but the Rockets started to fight back, getting to within 9 points. The Grizzlies were able to hold onto their lead and win the game 96-84. However, their streak was ended when they lost to the Spurs the next night. The Grizzlies have a chance to start a new winning streak when they host the Mavericks on November 24. Tickets remain available, with prices starting at just $4.
11/18/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies are definitely not the team in the Western conference that is leading it all, but they are an organization that needs to be looked out for. Currently they are in the middle of the standing board and have evened up with six wins and six losses. The Grizzlies have won their last three games in a row, which is nothing but helpful to their record. On November 16, the Grizzlies faced off against the Oklahoma City Thunder powerhouse. Scoring 43 points in a single quarter alone was what put the Grizzlies in the winning position that night. See the Grizzlies hit the court again when they play the Houston Rockets on November 20. Get your ticket today.
11/11/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies snapped a four game losing streak with a narrow 101-100 win against the Trail Blazers. Zach Randolph hit a last-second basket to bring the Grizzlies ahead to snag the win. Marc Gasol helped with 31 points, which was a season high. Randolph's game winning point came after several unsuccessful attempts from teammates, including Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, and Allen Grabbe. Portland attempted to get the game back with a final shot at .6 of a second, but it fell short. The Grizzlies kept up their winning momentum when they beat the Timberwolves 114-106. They will look to build on this growing winning streak when they play the Thunder on the 16. Tickets remain available, starting at $6.
11/4/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies are halfway through a series of tough away games. Still, they are holding their own admirably. Their record for the season is 3-3. Having five consecutive away matches is always difficult, but the Grizzlies managed to take a 103-89 victory against the Sacramento Kings on November 3rd. The Grizzlies will return to Memphis on the 11th when they host the Golden State Warriors, who are still undefeated. This huge obstacle is not what the Grizzlies were hoping to return to, but it should be an immensely exciting game, so get your tickets today. You can secure your spot in the stands starting for as low as $22.
10/28/15 - For the first game of the 2015-16 season, the Memphis Grizzlies had a slow start, which cost them the game. They were outscored 26-10 in the first quarter, and never had a chance to rally and get ahead of the Cavaliers. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol both had 12 points to tie as the team's leading scorers of the game. The Grizzlies had a tough time all around finding the basket, with only Gasol and Tony Allen being able to make at least half of their attempted shots. Overall, the team had a 35 percent shooting average. They will look to improve on this when they face the Pacers on October 29. You can still get tickets, with prices starting at $10.
10/21/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies are an NBA team that you don’t hear a lot about, but they have been in the league for over 20 years now and have been in Memphis for 14 of those years. Last year the Grizzlies played well for the majority of the season and were on top of their division leader board. Unfortunately, as the season went on, the Grizzlies had some setbacks and weren’t able to complete the regular season as the top dogs. They did make it to the playoffs though and were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in the semi-finals. See what they bring to the court when they play their first season game on October 28 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
10/12/15 - It's preseason time for the Memphis Grizzlies, and they seem ready to have a great 2015=16 season. They won their first three preseason games against the Houston Rockets, Israel's Maccabi Haifa, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The leading scorer for each game was different, with Russ Smith, Marc Gasol, and Zach Randolph each getting a chance to be the high scorer. Fans, team members, and coaches are also celebrating the Grizzlies being named second in ESPN the Magazine's Ultimate Standings, which ranks all 122 professional sports teams from the main four sports. The Grizzlies next host the Oklahoma City thunder on October 16, and you can still get your tickets for prices starting at $3.
8/12/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies finished with a respectable 55-27 record last season and finished second in the Southwest Division. For players and many of the team’s fans, however, it simply wasn’t enough. They are eagerly waiting for the 2015-2016 season to kick off so they can try to prove themselves once again. The NBA recently published the official schedule for the upcoming season, and it looks like the Grizzlies will have a tough start. They’ll be tested in the home kickoff game against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers before hitting the road to play the Indiana Pacers. Come see all of the action kick off in person on Wednesday, October 28 at FedEx Forum. Tickets to the home opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers start at $151.
5/12/15 - When the Memphis Grizzlies entered the second round of the playoffs, they had their work cut out for them. Taking on the league leader is a daunting task, and they had to do it without the home court advantage. While the Golden State Warriors put up an impressive fight initially, the Grizzlies have turned it around with two consecutive victories, one of which even being on the Warrior's court. Unfortunately, the Grizzlies lost their second home game, which tied their records up. With three games remaining, it is impossible to say who will advance to the semifinals. Two games will be away matches, but the Grizzlies have already proven they can handle themselves on someone else's court. Be sure to catch May 15th's round as it is their final home game. Tickets are still available.
5/5/5 - It was clear that the Memphis Grizzlies were missing their starting point guard on Sunday afternoon, as they fell to the Warriors in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals. The 101-86 loss put the Grizzlies in a 0-1 hole in the series, although play has yet to shift over to The Grindhouse, a.k.a. FedEx Forum in Memphis. Marc Gasol led the Grizz in their second-round opener, putting up 21 points and nine rebounds. Fellow big man Zach Randolph nearly matched his teammate with 20 and nine, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the high-octane offense of Stephen Curry and Golden State. Memphis will try once more to steal home court advantage in the series at Oracle Arena on Tuesday night, and a select number of seats are still available starting at $137!
5/1/15 - The good news for the Memphis Grizzlies is that they have secured a spot in the conference semifinals, and they played exceptionally well in the first round to boot. Unfortunately, their opponent in the second round is going to be the Golden State Warriors, who are the leading team in the entire league. The Memphis Grizzlies only took one loss, on April 27th, so it seems they are at the top of their game, but the Warriors are going to be their biggest challenge yet. We will get a feel for how the second round will play out on May 3rd at the first match. The Grizzlies are also playing at a court disadvantage, so they certainly have their work cut out for them if they want to advance to the conference finals.
4/20/15 - Continuing their domination of the Portland Trail Blazers that stretches back to their 4-0 regular season series sweep, the Memphis Grizzlies took the first game of their opening round playoff matchup, 100-86. The Blazers couldn’t get a foothold early against the Grizzlies’ aggressive defense, posting only 39 points in the first half compared with 58 for Memphis. Backup point guard Beno Udrih showed the playoff mettle he developed during his days in San Antonio, coming off the bench to pour in 20 points in just 24 minutes of play. Zach Randolph added 16 and 11 rebounds, and Marc Gasol chipped in 15 and 11 as the Grizz dominated the paint en route to the Game One win. Game Two is Wednesday night at the FedEx Forum and tickets are on sale now!
4/13/15 - Down to the final night of an 82-game season, the Memphis Grizzlies know they will be in the playoffs, and they know they’ll be starting out on the road. Depending on the outcome of the Rockets’ and Grizzlies’ final games, Memphis can finish either fifth of sixth place in the West, potentially placing them in a matchup with either the L.A. Clippers or Portland Trail Blazers. On the outside, they could possibly even see San Antonio in the first round, but one thing is for sure—their twin towers in Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph will be ready for the challenge regardless of the opposition. Playoff tickets are on sale now! Postseason action begins on Saturday, April 18th. Get your seats at the FedEx Forum starting at $38!
4/8/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies, currently holding down second place in the Southwest Division and third place in the conference, are a game behind resurgent Houston with five games left to play. Both the Grizz and Houston have similar finishes to their schedule – three games against .500 or better opponents, and four against other Western Conference teams.
3/25/15 - This week, the Memphis Grizzlies officially joined golden State as playoff qualifiers in the NBA’s Western Conference. The Grizzlies, winners of their last three, still have yet to clinch the Southwest Division, however, with Houston still a very close 2 ½ games behind.
3/17/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies are aiming to secure a three-game winning streak when they face the Pistons on Tuesday, March 17. The last time the two teams met was in November, where the Grizzlies defeated the Pistons 95-88. With the Grizzlies coming off of a 96-83 victory over the Bucks on March 14, and a 92-81 defeat of the Nuggets on the 16, they look good to secure the win, especially as Detroit is currently in a 10-game losing streak. However, the Pistons will be looking for revenge, especially as their earlier loss to the Grizzlies started another double-digit losing streak. The Grizzlies will also be looking to maintain their position as top in the Southwest Division, with a current season record of 47-20. Tickets to the game against the Pistons are still available, starting at $2.
3/11/15 - With the end of the season in sight, the Memphis Grizzlies are well placed for a deep run in the postseason this season. Currently second in the overall Western Conference, and leading the meat-grinder that is the Southwest Division – where every team is over .500 – by two games over Houston, the Grizzlies have to avoid getting complacent down the stretch.
3/4/15 - The Memphis Grizzlies have been unable to make up any conference ground on West leading Golden State recently. The Grizzlies, who dropped their last outing, remain 4 ½ games behind the Warriors, but a game and a half ahead of Southwest Division second place club Houston.
2/25/15 - Winners of their last two, on the road against Portland and the L.A. Clippers, the Memphis Grizzlies continue to put pressure on Western Conference leader Golden State in the race for the conference’s top seed. The Grizz are just 3 ½ games behind Golden State in the overall conference standings.
2/19/15 - Starting the two-month homestretch to the playoffs, the Memphis Grizzlies take to the road and a date this weekend in Portland. The Grizzlies are still the top team in the Southwest Division, and in the larger conference picture, are three games ahead of the Trail Blazers and four behind top seed Golden State.
2/4/15 - With a seven game win streak going, the Memphis Grizzlies are the hottest team in the Western Conference at the moment. The Grizzlies lead the Southwest Division by three games over Houston, and are second overall in the West, just 2 ½ games behind Golden State.
1/28/15 - Winners of eight of their last nine games, the Memphis Grizzlies have put a small cushion between themselves and their nearest competitor. The Grizzlies, winners of their last three as well, have opened a game and a half lead on Houston and are 2 ½ games up on Dallas.
1/21/15 - Even though they lost their last game, the Memphis Grizzlies are back atop the Southwest Division. The Grizz have company at the top, though; they’re a half game in front of both Houston and Dallas (all three teams have 29 wins), and three games ahead of fourth place San Antonio.
1/14/15 - After spending much of the season as the top team in the Southwest Division, the Memphis Grizzlies were finally surpassed. Now second in the division to Houston, the Grizz also have to look over their shoulders as well, as Dallas is in a virtual tie with them as well.
1/7/15 - While the Memphis Grizzlies have blazed a hot streak through the league out of the gate, they still have the third best record in the conference. The Grizz, at 25-9, trail Golden State (27-5) and Portland (27-8) in the race for best record in the conference.
12/23/14 - The Memphis Grizzlies have hit a tough spot in their schedule. Having dropped three straight after a six game winning streak, the Grizzlies will be looking to gain some ground the day after Christmas with a game against second-place Houston.
12/17/14 - Was it a statement win? The Memphis Grizzlies took care of business Tuesday night, handing visiting Golden State just their third loss. The Grizzlies relied on a deep bench to take over the game in the second quarter and hold on for a 105-98 win.
12/10/14 - The Memphis Grizzlies continue to be one of the hottest teams in the NBA. At 17-4, they stand atop the Southwest Division, a half game in front of Houston and two games ahead of San Antonio and Dallas; along with Portland from the Northwest Division, they also have the second-best record in the league.
12/3/14 - The Memphis Grizzlies continue to be one of the hottest teams in the NBA, even in a division where four of the five teams are playing over-.700 ball. The Grizzlies’ five game winning streak, however, is second in length to San Antonio’s eight game streak.
11/19/14 - It’s no surprise that the Memphis Grizzlies are the first NBA squad to 10 wins this season. The Grizz, who have only lost once this season, are just a single game ahead of Houston and two ahead of Dallas in the Southwest Division.
11/12/14 - How are the 7-1 Memphis Grizzlies getting it done this season? Look at the defense. The Grizz are tops in the Association at the moment in team defense, allowing just 89.1 points per game on average.
10/29/14 - The Memphis Grizzlies won their first season opener in thirteen years, hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves at the FedEx Forum. The 105-101 score marked and end to the opening night drought that the Grizzlies have had since October of 2000 and relocating from Seattle. Marc Gasol got a career best of 32 points, leading the team to victory by shooting 12-of-17 shots and assisting with nine rebounds in his 37 minutes of game play. Other high scorers of the game included Zach Randolph and Mike Conley who scored 25 and 16 points, respectively. Memphis had 43-of-82 with Gasol and Randolph having a combined 24-of-33 of that. Upcoming games promise to be just as exciting as the Grizzlies face off against other amazing teams with tickets selling for as little as $8.
8/26/14 – The 2014-2015 Memphis Grizzlies schedule recently released, and it’s filled with must-watch matches from start to finish! The Grizz will tip-off their season at home, against Minnesota on Oct. 29. Memphis plays five of their first seven games on the road, before returning to FedEx Forum for a long homestand that features Kobe Bryant and the Lakers (Nov. 11), Dwight Howard and the Rockets (Nov. 17) and Blake Griffin and the Clippers (Nov. 23). See the Memphis-Oklahoma City rivalry renewed when Kevin Durant and the Thunder visit on Jan. 31 and Apr. 3. Score your Memphis Grizzlies tickets today and see if this squad can take it to the top of the West!
The Memphis Grizzlies proved that they are among the best in the West, when their squad is healthy. With the injury to Marc Gasol, the Grizzlies struggled on the year and slipped into the postseason—the franchise’s fourth straight appearance—in the eleventh hour. Memphis was unfavorably pitted against OKC, and although they pushed the Thunder to seven games, the Grizzlies ultimately exited in the first round. Can Memphis score a return trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2015? The franchise made a few roster moves that will certainly further the Grizz's chances this year.
Memphis has kept their core in tact by securing Zach Randoph and Beno Udrih for more years to come. They added talent in the draft with Jordan Adams and Jarnell Stokes, but no acquisition for this small-market franchise is as big as scoring Vince Carter in free agency. This will make the Grizzlies as formidable as ever heading in to the highly anticipated 2014-2015 season. Don't miss the return of a super-talented Grizzlies squad who added veteran Carter and drafted young talent to provide instant offense off the bench! Take in the action at FedEx Forum with Memphis Grizzlies tickets today.
5/2/14 - If the Memphis Grizzlies advance to the second round of the playoffs over Oklahoma City, they will do it without a key player. The league announced that Grizz forward Zach Randolph will be suspended for Game 7, after Randolph elbowed, then hit Thunder center Steven Adams in the fourth quarter of their 104-84 loss to OKC. The loss of Randolph takes a key weapon away from the Grizzlies at a critical point, as he had been averaging a team high 18.2 points per game in the series; in Game 6, he accounted for 16 points (one of just four Grizzlies who scored in double figures), eight rebounds, an assist and a steal. Marc Gasol led the Grizzlies’ scoring effort in the loss with 17 points.
4/18/14 - In a final game of the season battle for seeding, the Memphis Grizzlies edged Dallas by one, 106-105 in an overtime battle at FedEx Forum, thereby setting up a matchup with Oklahoma City and sending Dallas to meet the West’s top seed in San Antonio. Zach Randolph had a strong outing, recording a double-double of team highs in points (27) and rebounds (14); Mike Conley was not far behind statistically, adding 22 points, five assists, four rebounds, and a pair of steals. Marc Gasol nearly had a triple-double, scoring 19 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, with a pair of steals and a blocked shot; Tony Allen was the top reserve for the Grizzlies, chipping in with 13 points, seven boards, a pair of assists and a steal. The Grizzlies held advantages in rebounding (48-39) and points in the paint (58-42) over Dallas.
4/14/14 - Go figure. After falling to San Antonio on April 6, 112-92, the Memphis Grizzlies bounced back in a major way to squeeze past Miami, 107-102, on April 9 at the FedEx Forum. The Grizz got a trio of 20 point performances in this key win, which kept them one game back of Dallas for the final Western Conference playoff slot. Mike Conley was the leading scorer for the Grizzlies with 26 points, while Zach Randolph’s 25 (combined with 11 rebounds) was not far behind. Marc Gasol was the third Grizzly with 20 points, scoring that amount exactly while pulling down 14 boards for his own double-double. Courtney Lee was the other Memphis player to break into double digit scoring, adding 18 points.
4/7/14 - With just seven games remaining, and in eighth position in the Western Conference overall standings (tied with Dallas but owning the tiebreaker with the Mavericks), the Memphis Grizzlies can ill afford to lose games to teams under them in the standings. Yet, that’s what happened on April 2, when the Grizzlies traveled up to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves, and lost 102-88. It was a lackluster performance statistically for the Grizz, as only one player – center Marc Gasol, with 18 – exceeded the 15 point mark for Memphis; just two other players, Courtney Lee with 14 and Ed Davis with 10 in a reserve role, rose into the double digits in scoring. High rebounder was Gasol, who pulled down eight boards; while guard Mike Conley dished out eight assists for the Grizzlies.
3/28/14 - Livin’ on the edge, these Memphis Grizzlies. Clinging precariously to a playoff spot with just 11 games left (seventh place in the West, half a game up on Phoenix and a full game up on Dallas), the Grizz have won their last three in a row, including a 91-87 victory on the road over Utah. Zach Randolph was the BMOC (big man on court) for the Grizzlies, combining 22 points and 13 boards, while Mike Conley combined 19 points and six assists, and Marc Gasol added 18 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals. Another difference maker: The Grizzlies were nearly perfect from the free throw line, making 15 of 16 for the night.
3/21/14 - A pair of 20-and-10 double-doubles – 21 points and 11 rebounds from Zach Randolph, with 20 points and 10 rebounds from Marc Gasol – sparked the Memphis Grizzlies to a 96-86 victory over Utah earlier in the week, giving the team their eighth straight win at the FedEx Forum. Gasol also swatted away four shots, while Mike Conley contributed 18 points, seven assists, and three steals to help keep the Grizz in the mix for one of the Western Conference’s final two playoff slots. The Grizzlies are currently in seventh place, just .003 ahead of division mates Dallas in the playoff race.
3/14/14 - Leaving the comforts of FedEx Forum, where they have won seven straight, the Memphis Grizzlies took on Southwest Division mates New Orleans on March 12, and needed a last second basket from Mike Conley to emerge with a 90-88 win over the Pelicans, and remain in contention for a Western Conference playoff spot. Conley led the Grizz with 16 points for the evening, while center Marc Gasol put up 15 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Also with nine rebounds, to go along with 13 points, was Zach Randolph, while Tony Allen also scored 13 coming off the bench.
3/10/14 - The Memphis Grizzlies just cannot pick up any ground on the top eight teams in the West, and with just over 20 games to go, the Grizzlies have very little margin for error if they expect to be in the Western Conference mix come playoff time. Case in point: dropping their last game 103-94 to Brooklyn, allowing the Nets to move one game over .500. Among their starters against the Nets, only center Marc Gasol was able to break through into double figures, with 18 points to go along with seven rebounds. The bulk of the Grizzlies’ scoring came off the bench, with five reserves in double digits, led by Jon Leuer’s 19.
3/3/14 - The Gasol brothers faced off once again on February 26, with the Memphis Gasol (Marc) victorious over his brother (Pau), 108-103 at the FedEx Forum near the banks of the Mississippi River. Marc (14 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two blocks) was outscored by Pau (17 points, along with 10 boards) for the game, while Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee led the Grizzlies in scoring with 18 points. Tony Allen chipped in 17 points off the bench in the winning effort.
2/21/14 - Despite sitting just a game outside the playoff contenders, the Memphis Grizzlies ultimately stood pat at the league trading deadline on February 20. A deadline deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves fell through, which would have involved Grizzlies Tayshaun Prince and Tony Allen; and T’wolves Chase Budinger and J.J. Barea. Memphis came out of the break on a good note, holding New York’s Carmelo Anthony to just 22 points in a 98-93 defeat of the Knicks. Former Ohio State Buckeye Mike Conley led the Grizz with 22 points of his own in the win.
2/11/14 - History of sorts was made by the Memphis Grizzlies last Saturday, as the Grizz attempted just one free throw in the entire game, a 79-96 defensive struggle against Atlanta. The lone attempt was by Courtney Lee, who sank it as part of his total of 14 for the game. Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies in scoring with 20 points, while Marc Gasol cleared a total of eight boards and also dished out seven assists. Memphis remains just three games out of the playoff picture in the West.
2/4/14 - Since December 21, the Memphis Grizzlies were the proud owners of the NBA’s best record…then they headed into Oklahoma City on February 3 to take on white-hot Kevin Durant and the Thunder, and came up on the short end of a 86-77 loss to OKC. A contributing factor may have been the missing presence of point guard Mike Conley. The Ohio State product has been sidelined with a sprained right ankle and is being listed as day to day by the Grizz.
So far this season, the Grizz have picked up a win-one-lose-one pattern game in and game out. Last week Memphis fell to the Pacers (95-70) on the road, lengthening Indiana’s undefeated start, and the week before they had a convincing victory over the Warriors (108-90). Tomorrow they have a chance to snap out of the hot and cold play, in one of the most anticipated games for Grizzlies fans this year. A potential win over the Toronto Raptors comes Nov 13, when forward Rudy Gay returns to “The Grindhouse” for the first time since being traded to Toronto. Gay was such an integral member of the team, fans may be conflicted whether to cheer or jeer upon his return—get in for as low as $1 to be there—unbeatable!
The Memphis Grizzlies ended the 2013 NBA Playoffs with a Western Conference Finals appearance; it was their best season ever. Returning players on the Grizzlies roster include Defensive Player of the Year Marc Gasol, Tony Allen, Mike Conley, and Zach Randolph. The four will be joined by Mike Miller from the Miami Heat who was the biggest signing for the Grizzlies this offseason.

3/4/13 - Since leaving Vancouver after the end of the 2000-01 season, the Memphis Grizzlies have quietly built themselves into one of the better squads in the NBA. Although falling back a bit after winning their first postseason series in 2010-11, the Grizzlies are in the middle of the Western Conference pack, behind the surprising LA Clippers. Defense has become the Grizzlies hallmark; the team is first overall in the NBA in points allowed at 89.5 points per game. However, the team is towards the bottom of the league in team offense, averaging just a little over 93 points per game in scoring. Forward Zech Randolph is leading the squad in points per game, while point guard Mike Conley (an Ohio State product) has been quite effective in getting the ball to the frontline scorers. Defensively, the Grizzlies are led by center Marc Gasol (brother of Lakers star Pau), who is averaging 1.7 blocks per game and is second in rebounding. Additional contributions are coming from guard Tony Allen, as well as Tayshaun Prince and Jerryd Bayless. Coach Lionel Hollins has been effective at turning the Grizzlies into a top defensive squad; the Fedex Forum faithful have to be hoping for a deep run in this season's playoffs.
