GRIZZLIES RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Memphis Grizzlies can hardly afford to get bogged down in a lengthy losing streak in a competitive Southwest Division and will try to end their brief skid in a visit to Western Conference's last-place team.
The Grizzlies, though, couldn't pull out a road win over the Minnesota Timberwolves earlier this month and will try for a better result Saturday night.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies dropped their second straight game, 97-79, on Friday to the Los Angeles Clippers. Memphis (41-16) cut a 15-point lead to five in the fourth quarter, but a hack-a-DeAndre-Jordan-rally fell short. It snapped a seven-game home win streak.

All-Star Break lasted a little longer for the team here at GritGrindGrizz.com, but we’re back for the sprint to the playoffs, maybe even the Finals.

And in what is certainly disappointing...

DeAndre Jordan has stepped it up since Blake Griffin went out with an injury. And he definitely stepped it up with this jam on Marc Gasol.
Look at DeAndre yam this on the younger Gasol:
Being 6’11” and having a 95-inch vertical can be so unfair.

This does not sound very serious, but, still, how worried should the Memphis Grizzlies be about their free-agent-to-be? He's their most important player, and losing him for any significant stretch...

Due to the extended NBA All-Star break, the Memphis Grizzles do not play again until Sunday at Portland -- and they won't play at home until Feb. 27 against the Clippers. Here are five post-break questions to ponder in the meantime.

It’s the little things in life and even in the NBA. Sure there’s scoring, dunks, rebounds, and pinpoint assists, but for the Grizzlies’ Tony Allen, it’s turnovers that get him going.

Remember Michael Beasley? You now, the guy who played with the Heat and was picked No. 2 overall in the 2008 draft?
Well, he resurfaced and is playing overseas in the Chinese Basketball Association and recently was named the MVP of the CBA All-Star game after dropping 59 points in the win.
Nothing like a game where absolutely no defense is played for Beasley to shine.
