Memphis Grizzlies: What’s Next?

This summer will be an interesting one for the Memphis Grizzlies. With key free agents on the market, what’s next for the Grizz? The Memphis Grizzlies had a weird 2016-17 season. For one, they didn’t play the same brand of basketball that has brought them success. Marc Gasol was shooting 3-pointers. Zach Randolph was coming […] Memphis Grizzlies: What’s Next? - Beale Street Bears - Beale Street Bears - A Memphis Grizzlies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Memphis Grizzlies: Closing Time

Last night, the Memphis Grizzlies fell to the San Antonio Spurs 103-96 in a hard fought six-game series. The Memphis Grizzlies started out slow at the beginning of the first quarter. Their offense was stagnant, and the Spurs, well, were being the Spurs. Then, the Grizzlies were down 20-10, and Mike Conley came off the […] Memphis Grizzlies: Closing Time - Beale Street Bears - Beale Street Bears - A Memphis Grizzlies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

A Spurs salute to the vanquished Grizzlies

San Antonio outlasted Memphis in a memorable first-round matchup. My goodness. What a basketball series. For a matchup featuring two small-market teams and Kawhi Leonard, Mike Conley and Marc Gasol as its headliners, the San Antonio Spurs’ six-game series win over the Memphis Grizzlies may have been the most compelling first-round series of them all. Game 4 is already an instant playoff classic, a basketball game that evolved into a basketball masterclass in the fourth quarter between Kawhi and Conley, the two quietest stars in the league exchanging haymakers until one of them hit the...

Grizzlies' Mike Conley needs big help to extend series vs. Spurs

Grizzlies coach David Fizdale said he needed Mike Conley, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol to all play well to win Game 5. The same holds true or Game 6.

Game 5: Spurs 116, Grizzlies 103: Home Cooking

The home team hasn’t lost a game in this series yet. On Tuesday night the role players for the Spurs who didn’t play well in Memphis finally snapped out of it, and the Grizzlies got nothing from players not names Mike Conley or Marc Gasol (and even the latter had another tough outing). Simply put, given how poorly the Grizzlies guarded the perimeter, and how well the Spurs shot even when they defended flawlessly, the Griz should’ve gone down 20 in the third quarter and stayed that way. That they didn’t is a signal of just how close this series really is, and...

This is how you stop Kawhi Leonard

This is how you stop Kawhi Leonard

It’s gonna work. Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale jokingly asked during a press conference for suggestions on how to guard Kawhi Leonard. “I've tried everything,” he said which is mostly true. He’s tested James Ennis III, Wayne Selden, Vince Carter and JaMychal Green against Leonard, and Marc Gasol has fared just as poorly when switched in pick and roll situations. There’s really not many other options except to outright double team the San Antonio Spurs forward. But, there may be some extra-legal manners in which the Grizzlies could stop Leonard. Let’s take a look at...
