Memphis Grizzlies Rumors & News
Beyond The Arc | Memphis Flyer Oct 23, 2014
LeBron James may not have been in the building last night, but ESPN was, and the Grizzlies and Cavaliers still played a pretty close-fought game (for preseason, anyway). After previously announcing that the starting wing players would be Courtney Lee and Tony Allen, an injury to Lee forced Dave Joerger to go with Quincy Pondexter as the opening tip in his place—a lineup that some predicted would be the “real” starting lineup anyway.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]
The Cleveland Cavaliers will wrap up preseason play on Wednesday night in Memphis against the Grizzlies without LeBron James, who is resting. Tipoff is at 8 p.m. and the game will be shown on Fox Sports Ohio and ESPN.

At some point between the Apology and the Crito, Plato appears to have written down this dialogue between Socrates and a Grizzlies fan. It remains undetermined whether this Grizzlies fan was just a smart person who liked to watch basketball, or was involved in writing about the team in some capacity.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

The Grizzlies played a preseason exhibition against Brazilian team Flamengo last night, and… it went about the way you would expect it to. Flamengo hung in pretty well against the Grizzlies’ starters (Conley, Lee, Allen, Randolph, Gasol) only trailing 27–20 after the first quarter, but it all fell apart from there for the visitors, whose names (like “Olivinha” and “Gégé”) Rick Trotter said he had to study three days to … [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

I don’t know how many of you have seen the Mike Judge classic Office Space, but if you haven’t, I’m going to lose you for a second (or at least until you watch this clip). I couldn’t watch the Grizzlies’ game against the suddenly Durant-less Thunder last night because I was at a concert, but I’ve looked at the box score and I read back through my Twitter timeline, so I’m ready to share some things I/we learned about the Grizzlies last night: … [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

Last night was the first home preseason game for the Grizzlies, and their third game in four nights, but it felt like a “real” game (or, well, if about 6,000 more people had been there). The Grizzlies’ starters (Conley, Pondexter, Prince, Randolph, and Gasol, presumably because Tony Allen was out to rest up and Courtney Lee was out with a “personal matter”) played a lot of minutes, and mostly looked good doing it.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

If last night’s painful-to-watch loss to the Houston Rockets had been a regular season game and not a preseason game, this piece would consist of a great deal more weeping and gnashing of teeth. The lineups were mostly bad, the starters didn’t look good (mostly because it was the 2nd preseason game and they knew they’d only be playing about 10 minutes each, at 75% effort), and the guys fighting to get signed by somebody somewhere—Kalin Lucas, Earl Clark, Patrick Christopher, et al—were an object lesson that playing hard is sometimes not as important as playing well.… ...

Tonight's the night: the Grizzlies are taking on the Milwaukee Bucks in the first game of the 2014 preseason. The game is in Green Bay, not Milwaukee, and the TV options are, well, sparse.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

It's that time of year again: the time where I actually write stuff about basketball on a semi-regular basis and post it here. Seriously, though, the Grizzlies' 2014 preseason schedule starts this week with games against the Bucks, Rockets, and Hawks, and we're less than four weeks away from actual, meaningful basketball being played at the FedExForum.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

Well, we made it, folks: today marks Grizzlies Media Day and the official start of the preseason. It's been a long, weird summer, with short bursts of activity separated by entire months of nothing to talk about, but it's ending today, and in its place the new season is almost here.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]
