Report Card: Grizzlies bomb in Toronto

Well that was...something If you watched the Grizzlies game in Toronto Saturday evening, read the box score, or read the recap, you know what happened. One positive? If you take the three quarters other than the third, the Grizzlies won the game, 76-74. Moral victories! Because actual ones are few and far between at this point. Let’s get this over with. Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports Danny Green: 24 points, 7 rebounds. 7-of-9 from three in the 3rd quarter Yes, Danny Green. Green hit 7 threes in the third quarter to somewhat single-handedly flip the switch for...

Grizzlies embarrass themselves against the Raptors

Grizzlies embarrass themselves against the Raptors

Change is needed. Usually in this space after a game, a quick breakdown of what happened in the game for Memphis Grizzlies can be found. Who did well, who struggled, and what comes next. Not tonight. Tonight, we officially declare a season dead. The Toronto Raptors killed it. If it wasn’t already deceased, a 45-14 3rd quarter in Toronto got the job done. Marc Gasol being out isn’t an excuse - Toronto was without their best player Kawhi Leonard. Mike Conley was playing. Jaren Jackson Jr. was playing, and even without Marc on the floor Jaren was still not enough of a focus on both ends of...

5 Questions with Raptors HQ

5 Questions with Raptors HQ

I caught up with Joel Stephens from Raptors HQ to talk about tonight’s game. The Memphis Grizzlies are coming off a road game against the Boston Celtics to take on the Toronto Raptors. Good Lord, whoever made the schedule must’ve been done wrong for the Grizzlies to deserve this. You could say both teams are in a last-ditch effort. The Memphis Grizzlies wanted to ride with Mike Conley and Marc Gasol once again, and it has failed thus far. Meanwhile, the Raptors wanted to delay a rebuild for one more year, trading cornerstone DeMar DeRozan for a top-5 player in Kawhi Leonard. It’s...

Report Card: Memphis falls late to Celtics

Report Card: Memphis falls late to Celtics

Finally Memphis was watchable for four quarters. Memphis fell to the mighty Boston Celtics Friday night, 122-116. In a game that had some highs and lows, Memphis looked like a real basketball team for the first time since their win over the Spurs. The Grizzlies have now lost 15 of their last 18 games, trending in the wrong direction in many ways, but looked competent against the C’s. Big games from Jaren Jackson Jr. and Mike Conley kept the game competitive, but Kyrie Irving was just too much for Memphis. Here are my grades for Friday night’s loss at the Celtics: Mike Conley, B+ You...

Grizzlies compete but fall to Boston 122-116

Grizzlies compete but fall to Boston 122-116

Kyrie Irving put on a show scoring 38 points In their last meeting on December 29th, the Grizzlies built up a 19 point lead, only to watch Kyrie Irving and Al Horford lead the Celtics back to steal the victory 112-103 at FedExForum. Friday night was a little different as the Grizzlies and Celtics each used big runs until Boston finally took over late. Boston used excellent ball movement early to catch the Grizzlies defense out of position often and go up five midway through the first, 16-11. After the three by Marcus Smart to get that lead, Boston missed their next 7 in a row while the...

On Jevon Carter, Ivan Rabb, and the future

On Jevon Carter, Ivan Rabb, and the future

The Grizzlies’ struggles means a focus on the future is becoming more of a reality. That focus should begin within. Following the loss to Milwaukee, the Grizzlies are now 19-25, including a 7-20 record over their past 27 games. In six weeks, Memphis has transitioned from a clear playoff contender to a likely lottery lock. The Grizzlies are in a situation that no one wants to face, but one that must be embraced. The best way to stay positive in the present is to focus on the future. This is a rebuilding franchise, and because it is in a small market, it must commit to doing the rebuild...

Mike Conley should be an All-Star

Mike Conley should be an All-Star

The All-Star is about a month away. Here’s the case for why Mike Conley should be among the Western Conference stars playing in Charlotte. As we hit the halfway mark of the NBA season, the conversation has shifted towards February 17 and the All-Star game in Charlotte, North Carolina. For the third consecutive year, the voting will be broken up by three different groups of the NBA world. Fans will account for 50% of the vote, current players will account for 25%, and the media will account for the last 25% to determine who will make the game in Charlotte. Now, there can be a much longer...

The difficulty of goodbye in Memphis

The difficulty of goodbye in Memphis

The Grizzlies have clung to the past for far too long, and it now severely hampers both their present and future. Life is full of difficult goodbyes. As my high school career winded down in the spring of 2016, my college decision had basically come down to two schools—the University of Memphis and Union University. And while I was drawn to the ministry side of Union, I simply couldn’t shake my attraction to Memphis. It was simply home. It was the city where I had been born and raised, and my fondest memories were there. Of course, it has its problems just like any other major city does....
