(Miami, FL) — 11. That’s the number of times the Miami Heat cut the Memphis Grizzlies‘ lead to within one or two points in the second half.

Pelicans-Grizzlies Preview

The Memphis Grizzlies are off to the franchise's best start, but their victories haven't come in the most aesthetically pleasing manner.

Pursuit of next Wolves coach continues

MINNEAPOLIS -- So, now what? As of Saturday, it appeared the Timberwolves had their man to become the franchise's 11th head coach. By Sunday evening, in a turn of events all too indicative of the club's disappointing history, he'd turned tail and reverted to the southern-plains brushfire he'd hoped to flee.
