Big Spain With The Big Slam!

Marc Gasol took it all the way and hammered it down. Marc Gasol missed a dunk in the game on Saturday and promised he'd never miss a dunk again. Well, he definitely slammed it with authority during this play in the fourth quarter:

Film Breakdown: Marc Gasol's Baseline Spin Move

Marc Gasol has utilized a baseline spin move on the left block more than a handful of times this season with limited success. There are several things he could do to improve the move, and perfecting it would open up the rest of his post game. If you've ever tried to count Marc Gasol's various post moves on your fingers, odds are you ran out of fingers. Light enough on his feet to go right around his defender but brawny enough to power through one, there's not much Gasol can't do on the low block. Unfortunately for the Spaniard, teams have figured that out and now scheme for him in the post...

Marc Gasol and the Man in the Glass

Marc Gasol is having one of the worst seasons of his career. While there are some extenuating circumstances leading to Gasol missing out on the All-Star Game after starting in it the year before, Part I of the Friday Three this week looks to one person to blame in particular- someone Gasol knows quite well. The Memphis Grizzlies, and the city of Memphis at large, loves Marc Gasol. They love him so much they make videos declaring him one of their own. They love him so immensely they talk, tweet, meme, and blog about him...they made him the center of the universe in the Mid-South this past...

Final Score: Grizzlies Slide Past The Magic In Overtime, 108-102

The Memphis Grizzlies hosted the Orlando Magic Monday night in FedEx Forum, and fans were in for an overtime thriller as the Grizz pulled out the win thanks to a huge night from Jeff Green. Coming into tonight, the Grizz looked to bounce back from a tough road loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. During the entire first half, both the Orlando Magic and the Memphis Grizzlies were able to get whatever they wanted offensively, but both teams struggled on the defensive end. At the end of the first quarter, Orlando led 33-31. Marc Gasol came out strong in the first quarter with 9 points and had...

Matt Barnes seems likely to start in place of Tony Allen against the Magic

Marc Gasol is finally healed up to be removed from the injury report, but now the Grizzlies have another starter ailing. Shootaround- Tony Allen (knee/hammy) participated in @memgrizz shootaround. Head Coach Dave Joerger said Tony will be a game time decision — Rob Fischer (@thefishnation) January 25, 2016 The Grizzlies official game notes list Matt Barnes as the probable starter at small forward tonight against the Orlando Magic. Barnes has scored double digit points in 6 of his 9 games in January, and when he isn't scoring he's still filling up the stat sheet with rebounds, assists...

Memphis Grizzlies Fall to the Minnesota Timberwolves 106-101

The Memphis Grizzles don't always play the prettiest brand of basketball, and that was quite evident in Minneapolis Saturday night. It was the usual calling card of Memphis that failed them in Minnesota, as the Grizzlies fell to the young Timberwolves 106-101 despite a valiant fourth quarter effort. Well, that Memphis Grizzlies game was...something, wasn't it? It started innocently enough. Marc Gasol was playing well despite his knee injury that made him questionable to play in this game, Courtney Lee made two three-point shots in the first 6:17 seconds of the contest. The offense was...
What If Marc Gasol Was Always Aggressive?

What If Marc Gasol Was Always Aggressive?

Note: I'm out of town at a conference this week, so I asked my good friend Andrew Ford if he wanted to guest post. Andrew was on my staff at Grizzly Bear Blues and you can find his stuff at Grizzly Bear Blues, Upside & Motor, Today's Fastbreak, and InRecruit these days. (He stays busy, obviously.) He's got a great basketball mind, and I've learned a lot about hoops just by bouncing things off him. —KL Passivity is a dirty word uttered in many situations — often about Marc Gasol — over the course of Grizzlies games. When used, the word is certainly not meant to...

Grizzlies 103, Knicks 95: "Marc Gasol torched us"

Torched and scorched. New York battled and kept it close for a long time but Memphis was able to pull away in the closing minutes. The Knicks made their Metrocard comeback to pull it within five, but the damage was done. Missing Carmelo Anthony certainly played a role, but the team had enough to win. The waves broke in favor of Memphis who limited mistakes and got a fantastic effort from Marc Gasol. - The Knicks had Kristaps Porzingis guarding Gasol to start. While I like the idea because Gasol typically plays a bit further from the basket and that kept Robin Lopez closer to the hoop...

A Grizzly Pep Talk: All That Matters

In Part II of this week's Friday Three, "Coach Mullinax" returns to GBB with what he would say to a Memphis Grizzlies team supposedly struggling with coming together. Bring it in, fellas. (Team slowly walks up to Coach Mullinax, Tony Allen muttering Future lyrics to himself) That was a hell of a win last night. Mario Chalmers, you stepped up when we needed you, and that is what it means to be a professional. Marc Gasol, your third quarter performance was huge for this team. Zach Randolph, a solid and efficient game, Matt Barnes, goodness gracious, man, you couldn't miss from range! That was...

Opportunity Knocks for Mario Chalmers

With all the free agent wings on the roster, and the attention that Jeff Green and Marc Gasol's struggles have garnered, it is easy to overlook Memphis' most recent trade acquisition. In his recent opportunities as a starter, Mario Chalmers has overachieved and underwhelmed at the same time...and his future is quite up in the air. Part I of this week's Friday Three takes a look at "Super Mario's" struggles. It is only natural to blame a player like Jeff Green for the recent problems that the Memphis Grizzlies have faced. His effort has been questioned, his defense has been bad at best,...

Report card: Memphis Grizzlies vs. Houston Rockets

Grading the Memphis Grizzlies performance against the Houston Rockets. Grizzlies Report Card Grizzlies 91 - Rockets 107 Coach Dave Joerger: Grade: C Memphis played with a shortened rotation due to injury so Joerger benched a wing and played Vince Carter 20 minutes.

Starters Mario Chalmers: 41 MINS | 10 PTS | 3-8 FGS | 9 ASTS | -10 Grade: C+ Chalmers almost had a double-double, but he struggled to hit shots and turned the ball over three times.

Big Spain Steals It And C Lee Sinks Jumper To End 1st Quarter

C Lee is back! Marc Gasol is already having an overall solid night for Memphis with 10 points, and Courtney Lee already has 7 points in the game. On this play, Big Spain stole it from the Rockets and delivered a great pass to Lee, who promptly sunk the jumper that left only .3 seconds left on the clock in the first quarter.

First look at the Mount Grizzmore statues

omg! Maybe there have been pictures out before now, but this was my first time to see one of the Mount Grizzmore statues that the Memphis Grizzlies are giving out to the first 4K fans at FedexForum this Saturday when they host the Knicks. 1st 4k fans at #MEMvNYK will get first of four #MtGrizzmore set, feat. @aa000G9 > https://t.co/rYmuEHuGRs pic.twitter.com/dlTcoaz7U9 — Memphis Grizzlies (@memgrizz) January 12, 2016 I'm going to assume the other three to accompany Tony Allen will be Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley. That might not be people's All-Time Mount Rushmore for the...

Rockets facing another big team that is going with smaller lineup

When the Rockets face the Grizzlies on Tuesday, they will be playing another team that for years was known for its traditional frontcourt muscle butt has since downsized to play smaller with more spacing. The Grizzlies, long known for playing Zach Randolph with Marc Gasol, has switched to playing Randolph off the bench to start
