Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins insists that Zach Randolph will continue to come off the bench. Not having Randolph at all contributed to two losses for Hollins' club to the Utah Jazz. The Grizzlies, in fifth place in the Western Conference, seek their seventh straight home win Saturday night as these teams complete their season series. Randolph had 10 points and 11 rebounds as Memphis (34-24) saw its four-game win streak end with a 107-97 loss Thursday at San Antonio. The former All-Star has missed 37 games with a torn right ACL and come off the bench over the last 13 contests with four double-doubles in his last five efforts. "I don't know that we're ever going to do that," said Hollins about starting Randolph. "Zach can come in and score anytime. He's getting his double-doubles, so what else is there?" Randolph wasn't with the Grizzlies as they averaged 86.5 points in their losses to the Jazz (31-29). He could help slow down Al ...

Vince Carter's proximity disgusts Rudy Gay

Vince Carter pulled the old burp-n-blow on the Grizzlies Rudy Gay last night. Gay is waiting to inbound the ball. Carter approaches, like a lion stalking its prey. Gay, unexpecting, like a gazelle. Then it happens. Carter attacks, letting that burp go, and blowing in Gay’s face. Gay responds by half gagging, half wincing, followed by looking to the referee for help. Carter can...

Arenas dishes on poop-in-shoe prank

In a recent interview, Grizzlies point guard Gilbert Arenas comes clean on his prankster ways, including one time when he put dog poop in one of Andray Blatche's sneakers.

Players To Watch: Grizzlies vs Rainiers

The Grizzlies take on the Tacoma Rainiers this weekend in a four-game set. Here are four players to watch.

Grizzlies 103, Jazz 98

O.J. Mayo scored 17 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter to rally the Memphis Grizzlies to a 103-98 victory over the Utah Jazz on Saturday night. The Jazz held a 4-point lead early in the final period, but Mayo scored 10-straight points for Memphis to erase the advantage. His 3-pointer with 46 seconds left gave the Grizzlies enough of an advantage to win for the fifth time in...

Popovich: Grizzlies tough physically and mentally

The amount of media available before the San Antonio Spurs (40-16) prepare to face the Memphis Grizzlies (34-23) is noticeably smaller tonight, now that the Los Angeles Lakers have left town. The Spurs will face the Grizzlies for the final time this season, in a series where the Spurs are 3-0 against the Grizzlies, though most of those games have been played without Grizzlies forward...

Spurs-Grizzlies rematch?

There was something different about entering the Memphis Grizzlies locker room last night after they had just lost by ten points and lost all four games of the season series.While the losing locker room is usually very quiet with players holding their heads down and talking about lack of execution or lost opportunities, I walked into what seemed like a positive environment. Players...

Love sees stars, Ant-Rand shines like the sun

Kevin Love meet JaVale McGee’s elbow. Fantasy owners meet Anthony Randolph who went off for 28/61 with 5 blocks in 31 minutes. Oh, wait, you already met him like 12 years ago when he was 19, now he’s 22 and mostly sitting next to the rotting corpse that’s also known as Darko Milicic. Am I running out to pick up Ant-Rand? Hellz to the no, son! You know what they say, fool me...

Grizzlies-Spurs Preview

With only a few weeks left in the regular season, the San Antonio Spurs' first losing streak since January couldn't come at a more inopportune time. A visit from the streaking Memphis Grizzlies and Zach Randolph may not help. The Spurs will try to sweep the season series Thursday night from the Grizzlies, who have won four straight. San Antonio (40-16) had its 11-game...
