Mavericks at Grizzlies coverage: preview, recap, news, highlights

After seeing its six-game win streak snapped, Dallas heads to Memphis in a tough road matchup. What did the Grizzlies do over the summer? You mean other than steal everyone's favorite player? Memphis has probably seen less turnover than most of the West's better teams the last four or five years. They kept their biggest free agent, Marc Gasol, in town, and will hope to do the same next summer with Mike Conley. Early on it seemed that they might have stagnated a little, stumbling out to a 3-6 start, but a four-game win streak put them back over .500 and it appears they have righted the ship....

Gasol and Barnes With Gritty Defensive Play and Sweet Fast Break

Marc Gasol plays quarterback for a moment and delivers the long pass to Matt Barnes on the fast break for the dunk. After stealing the ball from Danny Green, Gasol and Barnes orchestrated a smooth fast break in the third quarter. On this play, Marc Gasol thew a quarterback-esque pass down to Matt Barnes, who finished the fast break with a commanding dunk. The bucket cut the deficit to 6, but the lead for the Spurs quickly expanded again. Barnes had 10 points on the night, and Gasol had 6 assists.

Vince Carter Makes Difficult Fadeaway And-1

Vince Carter has still got it. Vince Carter has gotten some minutes the past two games, and he's made the best of them. So far tonight, he has 5 points in less than 10 minutes. With less than a minute left in the first quarter, Carter made a tough and-1 jumper that cut the deficit to 5. Carter has shown in the last two games that he can still contribute to this team. In this play, Vince did a great job finishing the play and afterwards made the free throw.

Recapping The Enemy: The View From San Antonio

The Memphis Grizzlies' four game win streak came to an end tonight with a 92-82 loss in San Antonio. What did the enemy say before, during, and after tonight's game? Pre-game views - Conley and Chalmers are probably going to combine for 60, tbh. - Interesting matchup. The spurs aren't as bad of a matchup for Memphis as they were two years ago...well see. Chalmers is contributing really well. - Can't wait to see Chalmers score 30.. Anyway, Spurs with Manu win by 10, Spurs without Manu lose by 20. (SPOT ON). - It should be a good game bc the Grizzlies have trended up, but I will miss...

Marc Gasol Finishes the Impressive Acrobatic And-One!

Marc Gasol took it to Enes Kanter and finished the tough and-one in the second half to regain the lead for Memphis. Wendigo scored an impressive, over-the-shoulder and-1 bucket in the fourth quarter against the OKC Thunder. On the night, Gasol had 17 points and 6 rebounds in tonight's 122-114 win. Gasol did a great job of finishing the tough shot on this play, which put Memphis up 82-80 after making the free throw. Big Spain has been showing up big in the last handful of games, and it seems we finally have Aggressive Marc back.

Quick Recap: Memphis Grizzlies Defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-114

It was a tight contest that saw the Memphis Grizzlies pull away from the Oklahoma City Thunder by the score of 122-114. An interesting night in Memphis, for a variety of reasons. Yes, the Memphis Sounds jerseys are awesome. But the game being played by the guys in the uniforms was quite a sight to behold as well, especially on the offensive end. Russell Westbrook played a monster game (40 points, 14 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 steals) but it was in a losing effort as the Memphis Grizzlies took this one from Oklahoma City 122-114. Three quick takeaways from tonight's contest. 1. The Mario...

Grizzlies 114, Wolves 106: Winless Without Rubio

Game Notes: Marc Gasol and the Grizzlies' bench lift Memphis over Portland

The Memphis Grizzlies broke a five game losing streak Friday night with a 101-100 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. It still wasn't a flawless victory, but the Grizzlies are slowly starting to look like themselves again. The Memphis Grizzlies broke a five game losing streak Friday night with a 101-100 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. It still wasn't a flawless victory, but the Grizzlies are finding the smallest possible ways to look like themselves again. Gasol Marc Gasol looked like the Aggressive Gasol from early last season by shooting 18 times and getting to the foul line 8...

Brandan Wright will be "out for a while" according to Dave Joerger

Eek. Brandan Wright has missed the last two games for the Grizzlies and most of a third game prior to that. Apparently his knee issue needs a while longer to heal up. Brandan Wright will be out for awhile, says Dave Joerger. — Ari Alexander (@AriA1exander) November 12, 2015 This leaves the Grizzlies with JaMychal Green to back up both Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol so expect to see Matt Barnes getting time at the 4 and for Jeff Green to ... be out there ... and stuff. Get healthy, Grizzlies. All of you. I don't want to look up in a week and see Mario Chalmers starting at small forward.

Thoughts from the Warriors loss: Gasol's battle, Mike's struggle, JaMychal's fit

Six thoughts from Wednesday night. Thoughts from the Memphis Grizzlies loss to the Golden State Warriors. Marc Gasol - It's strange what happens to Marc Gasol against the Warriors. If you just look at the box score, you'd see Marc posted 26 and seven, and probably think he played a really good game. And relative to how's he's look for most of the season to this point, he did have a good game. But the Warriors are able to guard him with a 6-7 guy that Marc significantly outweighs. He did a much better job at times using his size to seal off his defender, making an entry pass easy, and he was...
Trail Blazers 115, Grizzlies 96: Ten Thoughts

Trail Blazers 115, Grizzlies 96: Ten Thoughts

Last night's game ended very late and I didn't have much time to do a full Next Day Notes treatment—and I'm not sure the Grizzlies' performance deserved one anyway—so instead, here are ten quick reactions to the Grizzlies' third loss of the season (and third by double digits, though 19 ain't so bad when compared to Monday's 50-piece). 1. If Marc Gasol sits Thursday's game out with his neck injury instead of trying to play, this is a different story.…

Warriors bracing for challenge against revitalized Blake Griffin

Warriors bracing for challenge against revitalized Blake Griffin “He’s taken his game to another level,” Livingston said of Griffin after Golden State’s shootaround Wednesday morning. Curry, remarkably, seems to have raised his level of play. Green and center Festus Ezeli played spirited defense Monday night, in neutralizing Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol of Memphis. Remember, the Warriors lost to Los Angeles in a first-round playoff series in 2013-14, in part because center Andrew Bogut was sidelined. Bogut is out again, this time with a concussion, but the Warriors are cruising...

The Grizzlies Lost by 50 and That's a Problem

The Grizzlies lost by 50 points on Monday night. The Memphis Grizzlies lost by 50 points to the Golden State Warriors on Monday night.  It was the fourth game of the season so it's really difficult to say if anything important can be taken from that. But the Grizzlies have some serious issues at the moment. The game was close after the first quarter; the Grizzlies actually led by one! Memphis looked like they had flipped the switch and were going to compete against the best team the NBA had to offer. Matt Barnes was doing Matt Barnes things, Marc Gasol looked like the best player on the...
