Creating consistency by causing chaos

Creating consistency by causing chaos

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Using disruptive defense as a means to create offense has become a clear identity for this Grizzlies team. A recurring theme in many of the Grizzlies media sessions leading up to the season was many of the players’ specific goals of improving in certain aspects of their individual games. From Brandon Clarke’s ball-handling to Tyus Jones’ shooting to Ja Morant’s desire to be aggressive at all times, despite the short, unprecedented offseason, nearly every player had an area they were intent on getting better at. For Dillon Brooks,...

Quick Recap: Shorthanded Memphis narrowly defeats hobbled Nets

Quick Recap: Shorthanded Memphis narrowly defeats hobbled Nets

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports The Grizzlies bested an injury-riddled Nets squad for the second time this season. Dillon Brooks and company attempted to finish off their inauspicious homestand with a win against the defanged Nets. Here’s how Memphis fared in the outing before their week-long road trip: First Quarter: It’s an open secret that Brandon Clarke has had a rocky beginning to 2020-21, but he looked like the Clarke of old to start this one— the Gonzaga product was playing at the top of his game. By the three and a half minute mark, Brandon scored 12 points...

Dillon Brooks the creator

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Dillon Brooks has embraced becoming a better playmaker, but can he do it full time? Dillon Brooks has always been the same. You could count on him, night in and night out, to give it everything he had at all times, providing energy for the Grizzlies. He has routinely guarded the other team’s best player all while having the mentality of killer on the offensive end. The only problem is that, at times, the results don’t always equal the mentality, leading to his fair share of scrutiny. Dillon has had to be the alpha scorer on the team during...

Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/ See a Spurs view of tonight’s game! It’s opening night for both the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs! Though it’s not the same without fans in the arenas, and more importantly while we’re in the middle of a pandemic, it’s still refreshing to have something to be excited about to close out 2020. So, let’s rejoice there! The last time these two faced off was in the Orlando bubble where the Grizzlies lost in heart-breaking fashion — thanks to DeMar DeRozan pulling a vet move on elite fouler Dillon Brooks to get to the...

2020-2021 Memphis Grizzlies Player Preview: Dillon Brooks

2020-2021 Memphis Grizzlies Player Preview: Dillon Brooks

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Is this the year the much maligned wing wins over the fan base? Dillon Brooks is arguably the most polarizing Grizzlies player since Chandler Parson signed a four-year deal in 2016. Many at Grizzly Bear Blues have stronger opinions on DB than I do, so maybe I’m not the best person to write his preview - or maybe that makes me the perfect one to do it. The trigger-happy wing has spent three seasons with the Grizzlies. Toward the end of his rookie year, it looked like Brooks was coming into his own. But knee and foot problems in the 2018-19...
