Not Sick OR Tired: Grizz Blowout Pesky Celtics

Jonny Badger had a (gulp) JORDANESQUE game against the Celtics. He fought through that nasty stomach bug to hang 19 points, 7 boards, 4 assists and 2 steals on the Celtics. Then, he had to get some fluids after the game. All photos courtesy of Warren Roseborough. In a close game on Wednesday night up in Toronto, half of the Grizzlies were sick (with a stomach virus), and the other...

Bench Comes Alive, Grizzlies Beat Lakers, 107-102

Beno stripped Jeremy Lin and ran out for two of his 16 points. And yes, that’s Ed Davis in a Lakers uniform. All photos by Warren Roseborough. Players have slumps. It happens. That the Memphis Grizzlies bench seemed to be slumping all at the same time was troublesome, but tolerable given that the team found ways to win anyway. But as much as players can slump, they can also work...

2014-15 NBA Preview: Memphis Grizzlies

We don’t know when a team’s reign is done until it’s done. That’s not a trivial truism, full of cliches and signifying nothing; it’s a conclusion reached after considering cognitive biases and the history of the league. Memphis may have already peaked when they reached the western conference finals and Marc Gasol won Defensive Player of the Year, but the growing rate from...

Michael Beasley Coming To Memphis

Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news that Beasley, the No. 2 pick in the 2008 draft, has agreed to a non guaranteed contract with the Grizzlies. He will be on the training camp roster this fall and my guess is that he’ll make the team. Here’s hoping he rocks the ‘Fro. The Grizzlies need a guy with wild hair.

Memphis Grizzlies Hold Off Scrappy Utah Jazz for Win, 96-86

Balanced Attack Leads to Memphis Win: Grizzlies 110 Suns 91

Ed Davis is getting good at this double double thing, but he was also aggressive on the defensive end, where he blocked two shots and altered many others. One sentence can sum up what kind of night it was for the Memphis Grizzlies in their 110-91 victory over the Phoenix Suns: Jon Leuer led all scorers with 23 points off the bench, and fell just one rebound shy of a double double...

Kosta Koufos lobs a baby hook over the Brooklyn defense . . . and misses. Overall, the team offense sputtered, and the Grizzlies lost 88-97.

Three Point Play: Grizzlies at Celtics

So much has happened in this only-one-month-old NBA season, that it’s hard to comprehend that it’s only been one month. New coach, new players, injuries in training camp, rocky start, catching fire in California, and now Marc Gasol is sidelined for at least 4-6 weeks, maybe longer. And it’s not even December yet! Now the Bears head up to Boston, looking to complete a season...

Grizzlies adjusting to life without C Marc Gasol

Boxscore Breakdown: Grizzlies 86, Rockets 93

This was NOT the matchup we expected or hoped to see. Still, all in all, it wasn’t horrible, as Kosta Koufos snagged 13 boards and helped hold Dwight Howard to 15 points and 7 rebounds. It was the Grizzlies’ first game without Marc Gasol in the lineup. Kosta Koufos filled in admirably, with a dominant performance on the boards, racking up 13 rebounds, including 6 in the first...

The post-Marc Gasol era starts tonight, and it’s a doozie, as presumed starting center Kosta Koufos will have his hands full with Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard. So not only do the Grizzlies have to figure out the new wrinkles in their offense and defense without Gasol, they have to do it against one of the most dominant big men in the game.
