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...

Marc Gasol chasing title big brother couldn't win in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Marc Gasol is a creature of habit, a player who embraces his daily routine and assesses what must be done next at the day's end.

Have the Grizzlies accomplished anything?

The Memphis Grizzlies are up 2-0 in their first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. That's the good news.

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.

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,...
