Memphis Grizzlies: Grizzlies Must Change Starting Lineup By Mike Elworth: Publisher and Owner At Hoopstuff… The Memphis Grizzlies are now down 2-0 to the San Antonio Spurs, despite an excellent rally to put game 2 into overtime. However, their offense is still struggling, especially in the 1st quarter where they have a combined 27 points, which averages out to just 13.5 points per game. That obviously is not enough from their starting lineup and a big reason why they are losing games, as they are having to come back from very poor starts. This means that they need to make a change in the starting lineup to improve their offense in the beginning of games. That change should  be taking Tayshaun Prince out of the starting lineup and putting Quincy Pondexter in his place. Prince is a very solid defender and played very well on offense, shooting over 43.8% from the field and 40.4% on 3′s during the regular season, while averaging over 10 points per game. However in the playoffs, he is on...

Grizzlies Coach Lionel Hollins Forgets Jerryd Bayless’ Name During Postgame Interview (Video)

Jerryd Bayless did not play particularly well in the Grizzlies’ Game 1 loss to the Spurs on Sunday. The fifth-year guard out of Arizona was run ragged by the Spurs’ screen-setting, directly contributing to several of the Spurs’ 14 3-pointers, a franchise playoff record. Still, after playing in 92 games this season, including playoffs, Bayless should at least expect his coach...

Tony Allen’s flagrant foul flop deserved an Emmy

In the waning seconds of game two of the Western Conference Finals between the Spurs/Grizzlies, Memphis guard Tony Allen produced a rather epic acting job to gain a flagrant foul call against Manu Ginobli. After the Grizzlies made a defensive stop of Manu, the ball ended up in the hands of Tony on a fast break attempt which ultimately culminated with Ginobili fouling him in the act...

Levien: Grizzlies Using Analytics To Manage Salary Cap

The Memphis Grizzlies are using advanced analytics to manage the salary cap. “People talk about analytics in evaluating players, but there’s a lot of analytics around the salary cap,” said Josh Levien, the first-year CEO of the Grizzlies. “How much should we spend for a player at a certain position and what role he’s going to play? So that’s a lot of what we’ve done...

Tony Allen deserves a huge fine for flopping

The San Antonio Spurs escaped last night with an overtime victory in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Memphis Grizzlies, and we say escaped because Tony Allen put on a performance that no doubt influenced the referees to call a flagrant 1 foul on Manu Ginobili with under thirty seconds to go in the fourth quarter with the Spurs leading 85-81. It was a hard foul...

Tony Allen Embellishes Head Injury To Draw Flagrant Foul On Manu Ginobili

A Spurs turnover with 30 seconds left in Game 2 led to a Grizzlies fast break opportunity with Tony Allen in the open floor. As the Memphis guard went up for the layup, Manu Ginobili pulled down his arm in an attempt to stop him from scoring but as Allen fell to the floor, he sold it well, exaggerating a head injury as he stayed writhing on the floor in pain for quite some time....

Grizzlies' Gasol won DPOY, but is Spurs' Duncan proving to be more worthy?

AT&T Center – Four weeks ago, Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol was named the 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year. Gasol and the Grizzlies were defensive juggernauts in the regular season as they won games with their style of play, “grit and grind.” Today, with Gasol’s Grizzlies down 0-2 to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals, something was...

Jalen Rose does not know what the Pulitzer Prize is for

This clip comes from ESPN's postgame coverage from Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.  Near the end of the game, Tony Allen of the Grizzlies got a flagrant foul from Manu Ginobili.  Even though the call was fairly accurate, Allen writhed on the ground like David Luiz, holding his head that was never touched. After the game, Jalen Rose had a great line planned for...

Ginobili: Grizzlies' late-game rally might inspire them in Game 3

It took seven quarters, in which the Spurs outscored Memphis by 34 points, but the Grizzlies may have found a viable solution against San Antonio's pack-the-paint strategy -- spread the floor with Jerryd Bayless and Quincy Pondexter to make them pay for doubling Zach Randolph in the post.   Another fortuitous circumstance -- the nominally foul-averse Tim Duncan, averaging...

Down On the Farm, Season 3: Memorable Memphis

Memphis sits fewer than 300 miles down the Mississippi from St. Louis and might as well be its baseball sister city. Since the legendary Memphis Chicks (1901-1997) ceased existence and the parent club moved Triple-A operations west from Louisville 15 years ago, the Redbirds have been the highest affiliate in the Cardinals system. After playing their first two seasons at Tim McCarver Stadium...

San Antonio wins Game 2 in OT 93-89: Spurs take 2-0 series lead over Grizzlies

So much for the favored Memphis Grizzlies to take at least one game in San Antonio. The Grizzlies find themselves in an 0-2 hole as the Spurs held on in overtime to win Game 2 93-89.
