The Grizzlies faced the Chicago Bulls for the second time this season after losing to them early in the season 110-102. Last night, the Grizzlies were without Ja Morant, Kyle Anderson and Brandon Clarke. The game undoubtedly started strong for the Chicago Bulls. The Grizzlies had to call an early timeout within the...

Full Recap: Grizzlies fall to Clippers in nail biter

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports Clippers defense stifles Grizzlies in final seconds It may not have been Thanksgiving quite yet, but the Grizzlies big men were feasting against the Los Angeles Clippers stout defense last night. Jonas Valanciunas bullied his way to a double-double, while Jaren Jackson Jr. continued his hot shooting from the perimeter. Through most of the game, the Grizzlies looked the part of a young, competitive team. They stayed close, but trailed a majority of the game. That is, until the 4th quarter. After a quiet first 3 quarters, Ja Morant woke up and ignited a...

From game to game you can see the ebbs and flows of Memphis Grizzlies fans and media and their views on certain players and their capabilities. Jaren Jackson Jr. is a disappointment, Ja Morant is a (point) god, Jonas Valanciunas is out of shape and/or washed, Marko Guduric isn’t an NBA player...the list of opinions goes on and on, and it remains a talking point for those that die on those hills until the hill moves and the line shifts in favor...

Quick Recap: The Memphis Grizzlies Smoked by Denver

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Oof. The Memphis Grizzlies entered Sunday’s afternoon game with sights on extending their winning streak to 4. It wasn’t going to be easy, as the Denver Nuggets are one of the top teams in the West. I just wish it was a bit easier. Things started out nice for the Memphis Grizzlies, jumping out to 32-28 first-quarter lead — while also going on a 16-3 run in the quarter. Jonas Valanciunas, in particular, had a hot start. He drilled two 3-pointers and finished the quarter with 12 points and 6 rebounds. Then, the second quarter happened. The Denver Nuggets...
