Granted, we won’t get Jaren Jackson Jr. vs. Karl-Anthony Towns...or Ja Morant vs. D’Angelo Russell...or Justise Winslow vs. Anthony Edwards. But hey, it’s still going to be a good one, right?

The Grizzlies standard is saving Memphis

Photo by Jason Miller/ Hard nosed defense. Team first offense. Complete faith in the process. When the Memphis Grizzlies announced that they would be without Ja Morant for 3-5 weeks due to a sprained ankle, it was easy to write this team off. After already being down Jaren Jackson Jr., Justise Winslow, and others at any given point, it felt natural to go to YouTube and look up Cade Cunningham and Jalen Suggs highlights. After all, as has been stated numerous times, this is the last Grizzlies season without real expectations. The playoffs (or even a play-in) would be a...

Report Card: Grizz Start a Streak

Photo by David Liam Kyle/NBAE via Memphis defeats Cleveland for their second straight win The Memphis Grizzlies won their second straight game Monday night in Cleveland against a depleted Cavaliers team. It starts a winning streak that should be extended at least one more victory this week. Ja Morant. Collin Sexton. Jaren Jackson Jr. Kevin Love. Justise Winslow. Darius Garland. John Konchar. Kevin Porter Jr. That’s just the beginning of the list of players that were not dressed out to play Monday night’s matchup due to injury. If you were to grade the watchability...

GBB Podcasts: Going through storms towards a bright future

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Not the ideal start to 2021 but better days are ahead. It’s 2021, and we just completed the first full week of the podcast network. 2021 is looking like a sequel to 2020 at the moment, with the unjust ruling in the Jacob Blake case, and the double standard existing in the raiding of the Capitol building. On the basketball side of things, the Memphis Grizzlies are battling a long list of injuries, particularly with 3 of their main guys — Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Justise Winslow. As we’re all looking to do right now, the podcast...

The Long View: Value in a plug-and-play system

The Long View: Value in a plug-and-play system

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via The Grizzlies have a wonderful system that allows Coach Taylor Jenkins to plug and play different players and adjust on the fly. Coming into this game, I didn’t know what to expect or to really take away. The Memphis Grizzlies were without their two best players (Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr.), and they were without two rotational wings (Justise Winslow and De’Anthony Melton — though active, team held him out for conditioning reasons). The primary reason for my early skepticism was their opponent, a Los Angeles Lakers team that...

They will be without [takes breath] Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., De’Anthony Melton, Justise Winslow, Grayson Allen, Xavier Tillman, Jontay Porter, and Killian Tillie.
