The Grizzlies were outrebounded 53-34 last night and that was a big reason for the loss. Rudy Gay (19 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 1 blocked shot) and Marreese Speights (17 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals in 29 minutes off the bench) led the way for the Grizzlies in this game. O.J. Mayo (15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 steals), Quincy Pondexter (14 points and 4 rebounds in 18 minutes) and Mike Conley (11 points, 2 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals) also had solid games for the Grizzlies last night. The Grizzlies are now 3-5 on the year.

30-year old SG/SF Tony Allen is doing a decent job for the Grizzlies so far this year. Allen has played in 9 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 21.9 minutes, 9.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 1.9 steals per game. The Grizzlies need Allen to keep up the good work as they are off to a very slow start to the 2011-12 season.
OJ Mayo admits that he wasn’t happy when Memphis Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins asked him to come off the bench last season, but now he’s happy with the role. Per the LA Times: “O.J. Mayo had talked about being an NBA Hall of Famer going back to his days at USC, so his reaction was predictable last season when he was told he would be coming off the bench. Bench players...

Rudy Gay and the Memphis Grizzlies may have gone home with an L against the Lakers last night, but Rudy Gay can always take pride in the big hammer dunk he threw down in Matt Barnes’ face.
The Memphis Grizzlies will be wearing a "GB" patch on their uniforms the rest of the season in tribute to the late Gene Bartow. The team announced the patch will debut Tuesday night against Oklahoma City, and the Grizzlies also plan to give pins with Bartow's initials to the first 10,000 fans attending the home game.
Rihanna was courtside at Staples Center to watch the Lakers take on the Memphis Grizzlies. The Lakers had 27 turnovers but pulled off the win including a Kobe dunk that was extremely “from Kobe-esque” Matt barnes has earned his way into the starting small forward spot. I think he thinks Rihanna was the key to [...]
A new beginning is all the Grizzlies care about with center-forward Marreese Speights, who they believe is ready to turn the corner.
It’s generally never a good idea to give any NBA player the baseline, let alone Kobe Bryant, who shows Rudy Gay and the Grizz defense that he still has some quickness and hops.
Without Zach Randolph in the lineup, the Memphis Grizzlies have lost all semblance of order on offense.
Last season the Memphis Grizzlies gave Oklahoma City all it could handle in the Western Conference semifinals. This time around the Grizz might want to duck as the Thunder rolls onto Beale Street.
Nobody said that making $84 million over five years would come without its pressures, you know?
