Grizzlies Grind Out Two-Game Lead at Home

The Memphis Grizzlies took an early two-game lead in their round one playoff series with a 15-point victory over the Portland Trailblazers Wednesday night. What’s incredible is that it wasn’t even that close. So far this season the Grizzlies are winners of six straight versus the Trailblazers, and have won 11 of the last 12 match-ups. Not only that, but they have been winning...

The Memphis Grizzlies are taking care of business

Portland ruffled some feathers with the “We don’t lose to Spanish players” motto written in their locker room. This dig at Marc Gasol doesn’t seem to have had the impact that the Blazers hoped it would. They have lost to a Spanish player. Twice, actually. There has been very little in the first two games to convince anyone that Portland can turn it around. Memphis has looked...

Tony Allen Air Balls a Point-Blank Layup

Before the start of Game 2 between the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies, Tony Allen was on Twitter pumping himself up with “inspirational” tweets: Personally, I think those accounts are a massive waste of space, but clearly it works for The Grindfather — just not on offense. During the second second quarter, Allen cleverly maneuvered himself through Damian Lillard’s...

Nicolas Batum and Portland face the music in Memphis

I’m pretty sure nobody really thinks Nicolas Batum meant to hurt anybody with his recent motivational message that happened to include an inflammatory remark about Spanish players. It was a joke. People joke all the time. Let’s move on, right? Well, of course. This story is ultimately pointless. Marc Gasol said it best because he’s the best. “I don’t have no take,...

Thoughts For Game Two Of The Portland Trail Blazers / Memphis Grizzlies Series

On Sunday, it’s fair to say that the Portland Trail Blazers, to steal a quaint English phrase, caught ol’ barney off the Memphis Grizzlies Sunday. The starters on both teams struggled, but when the Blazers’ thin bench came in, Beno Udrih of the Grizzlies spat fire and burped ice, draining his first seven shots and keying a Grizzlies run that put Portland away before halftime...

Grizzlies' Conley playing through foot pain during playoffs

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Mike Conley should be resting right now, letting his sprained right foot heal. But he won't, no time. It's the playoffs. So the Grizzlies guard is playing even though sharp pain shoots through his foot when he runs or jumps - just not enough to keep him on the bench. ''It's going to flare up no matter what I do,'' Conley said Tuesday of the injury that kept him...

Veteran reserve guard Beno Udrih had an impressive Game 1 with the Memphis Grizzlies. Scoring 20 points in a win over the Blazers off the bench. No, I did not see that one coming either. “I was just mentally ready like I always try to be,” Udrih said in a TNT postgame interview. “I was open in my sweet spot, 17 feet and I got going early.” Udrih also added seven rebounds...
