Grizzlies Grades: Memphis Grizzlies at Phoenix Suns

Grizzlies 97 - Suns 91 STARTERS Zach Randolph : (A) 39 MIN | 32 PTS | 15-25 FG | 9 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 1 TO | +2 My Grizzlies MVP of the season is no other than Zach Randolph. The pressure of a massive contract and constant trade rumours could have crushed many veterans in the twilight of their career, but Zbo took everything in stride and ended up with a lower usage rate version of his prime seasons, plus he has developed a better all-round game due to his improved passing. It was way too easy to overlook Zbo's contributions since we all got to see Gasol and Conley miss time this season,...

Court Vision: No tapping out with Memphis' Zach Randolph

Zach Randolph, in physicality and personality, evokes Memphis’ wrestling past. (Bart Young/NBAE via ) • Zach Randolph is a terrific basketball player, an altogether charming personality and a conduit for Memphis to merge two of its great loves: The thrill of basketball and the theatrics of professional wrestling. From Chris Herrington, moonlighting at TrueHoop: … one […]

Grizzlies Grades: Denver Nuggets at Memphis Grizzlies

Nuggets 92 - Grizzlies 100 STARTERS Zach Randolph : (B+) 42 MIN | 20 PTS | 7-22 FG | 15 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 3 BLK | 1 TO | +17 A game of two halves was the story for Zbo last night. Struggled mightily with Faried's intensity and assertiveness during the first half where he was unable to get into deep post position on offense and was allowing Faried to go wild by scoring on Zbo at will and hitting hard on the offensive glass. However in the second half, Conley's dribble penetration changed the landscape of the game and opened up the court for Zbo as he quickly went to work, generating...

Playoff push comes to shove as Randolph powers Griz toward postseason

Grizzlies squeeze all the toothpaste out of the tube for a win in Denver

Grizzlies 94 - Nuggets 92 I'm glad the Grizzlies decided to let me and themselves get some sleep tonight, although it might take a couple of hours to shake all this adrenaline. The Grizzlies took the lead early in the game and never gave it up even though it looked like, at times, they wanted to give Denver every chance possible to get back into the mix. Memphis again struggled from the free throw line, possibly making things a lot more difficult on themselves, again. But Zach Randolph, Mike Conley and Courtney Lee were prepared for the thin Rocky Mountain air tonight and put up 58 points...

"They came out harder than us," said Memphis forward Zach Randolph, who finished with team-highs of 21 points and seven rebounds in the loss.

Lazy Bears: Grizzlies stumble through Portland and give Blazers a comfy win

Griz fans hoped for a strong turnaround from a disappointing loss at Golden State of Friday but things never came together in an ugly game against the Trail Blazers. Grizzlies 98 - Trail Blazers 105 Don't let the final score fool you; this wasn't much of a competition in Portland on Sunday night. The Grizzlies led the Blazers early in the game and looked poised to ride Zach Randolph to the usual result that this meeting has produced this season, but Memphis began sputtering late in the first quarter and never could gain enough traction on either side of the ball to give themselves a fair...

Grizzlies Grades: Memphis Grizzlies at Golden State Warriors

Grizzlies 93 - Warriors 100 STARTERS Zach Randolph : (C+) 35 MIN | 21 PTS | 10-16 FG | 7 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | -11 Having David Lee sidelined this game was a bit of a blessing in disguised for the Warriors. Although Speights and Green were no match against Randolph's offense, it was just as much of a mismatch defensively for Zbo. The Warriors identified that Zbo needed to be attacked from outside the paint as they executed to perfection time-and-time again, especially during the 4th quarter. Two Draymond Green threes and several screen-plays by Curry where Zach was late to rotate really...

Grizzlies Grades: Memphis Grizzlies at Utah Jazz

Grizzlies 91 - Jazz 87 STARTERS Zach Randolph : (A-) 36 MIN | 22 PTS | 8-18 FG | 13 REB | 3 AST | 3 TO | +8 After squaring off just a week ago, the Jazz got a sniff of what it takes to beat the Grizzlies big men. The plan against Zbo was simple, to show more energy and be the aggressor so Zach won't be able to bully you around. The strategy worked like a charm throughout the 1st half, frustrating Zbo into hurried shots and having shots rejected. However, Zach extended his range and start hitting mid range shots. The Jazz could live with him taking those shots but in the end, some great...

Grizzlies Grades: Minnesota Timberwolves at Memphis Grizzlies

Timberwolves 92 - Grizzlies 109 STARTERS Zach Randolph : (A-) 28 MIN | 17 PTS | 7-11 FG | 4 REB | 2 AST | 1 TO | +26 Wolves frontline had a sense of inevitability as Zbo got whatever he wanted down low without much resistance. He was also able to bump, grind and use his subtle hand checking moves to throw off Kevin Love's offensive game. With Randolph dominating his matchup against Love (that the Wolves absolutely had to win), the game went out of hand fairly quickly. A bonus 3-pointer, first of the season, capped off a great night for Zach. Tayshaun Prince : (B+) 27 MIN | 12 PTS | 6-11 FG...

Chris Herrington's Pick-and-Pop: With a strong weekend win and surging Zach Randolph, Griz face crucial week in playoff race

The Blazers are only three games up on the Grizzlies in the loss column and a hard stumble that brings them back to the pack and opens up that fifth seed is possible.

Grizzlies Grades: Memphis Grizzlies at Miami Heat

Grizzlies 86 - Heat 91 STARTERS Zach Randolph : (A-) 37 MIN | 25 PTS | 12-20 FG | 14 REB | 4 AST | 5 TO | +2 Made the Heat pay for not doubling down on him most of the game, scored in a multitude of ways and was an absolute force on the offensive boards. He would have sorely missed Gasol during the 4th quarter as the Heat absolutely crowded the paint and simply did not allow Zbo to beat them. Gasol would have drawn a lot more attention away from Zach with his own threat on offense and his playmaking ability. It's easy to observe that Zbo was mauled during crunch time without foul calls,...

Grizzlies Grades: Utah Jazz at Memphis Grizzlies

Jazz 86 - Grizzlies 96 STARTERS Zach Randolph : (A-) 36 MIN 21 PTS 8-16 FG 11 REB 3 AST 3 TO, +16 People question his age and that he is no longer an efficient player, while Zbo just continues to pile up the numbers. Another double-double along with clutch baskets to finish off the Jazz in crunch time shows that although he may no longer be the best player on the team, he is still the most dependable and most consistent. Tayshaun Prince : (D+) 29 MIN 4 PTS 2-7 FG 1 REB 1 AST, +6 If losing his matchup against Richard Jefferson isn't bad enough, how about some missed point blank layups and...
