Beyond the Arc Podcast #73: Z-Bo: Sixth Man of the Year?

Beyond the Arc Podcast #73: Z-Bo: Sixth Man of the Year?

This week on the show, Kevin and Phil talk about: Zach Randolph's candidacy for Sixth Man of the Year, and who some of the challengers might be. How can the Grizzlies win four straight games right after losing five straight? How much of that is tied to Marc Gasol's engagement level? Is Chandler Parsons ever going to play again? The effect of Gasol's three-point shooting on the Grizzlies Bench numbers after the All-Star Break, and a requiem for Toney Douglas A preview of the weekend's Griz/Warriors matchup. The Beyond the Arc podcast is...

Beyond the Arc Podcast #72: Torn Knees, Mended Lineups

This week on the show, Kevin and Phil talk about: The big news of last night: Chandler Parsons is out indefinitely with a partial meniscus tear. What does that mean for the Grizzlies this year? What about the years after that? How much better does it make the Grizzlies (this season, anyway) not to have Parsons taking up 20 minutes of rotation time? Vince Carter's incredible night in a big win over the Milwaukee Bucks Are the Grizzlies the West's Atlanta Hawks? Are the fans OK with that? Is Mike Conley mediocre? (Spoiler: no) With the Grizzlies rest...
Chandler Parsons out indefinitely with partial meniscus tear

Chandler Parsons out indefinitely with partial meniscus tear

The Grizzlies sent out a press release moments ago (just before the team came out to warm up for tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks) announcing bad news for their big free agent signing of last summer: Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons has been diagnosed with a partial tear of the meniscus in his left knee. Parsons will be out indefinitely as the team fully evaluates the appropriate course of action. “To suffer a setback like this after working so diligently to rebound from the injury to his right knee is obviously tough. That said, we know he will continue to...
Clippers 114, Grizzlies 98: The Pinto and the Guardrail

Clippers 114, Grizzlies 98: The Pinto and the Guardrail

It wasn’t even that they lost by 16 points, or that they trailed by 20 most of the 4th quarter. It wasn’t that Mike Conley played a heavy minute load again and shot 3–14 from the field. It wasn’t that Toney Douglas ended up –12 in 12 minutes, further cementing my opinion that hanging on to him as the permanent backup point guard was a huge miscalculation. The most frustrating thing about last night was the inevitability of it all, the lack of any doubt from about 15 minutes in that the Grizzlies were going to lose. From there on out, it was all theater, going through the...

Beyond the Arc Podcast #71: Losing, Parsons, and #FreeJamesEnnis

This week on the show, Kevin and Phil talk about: Our email thread from last week about what makes the Grizzlies hard to talk about What happened to the Grizzlies against Dallas and Houston? What is it about athletic centers and bad help defense? Should the Grizzlies really have done nothing at the trade deadline? A preview of this week: Brooklyn, the Clippers, and Atlanta Why can't James Ennis get back into the rotation? Everyone finally agrees: Chandler Parsons should have shut it down for the year a couple of weeks ago. The Beyond the Arc...

Grizzlies 130, Suns 112: Vincebus Ejectum

Something about this year’s configuration of the Phoenix Suns just doesn’t agree with the Grizzlies—probably mostly Devin Booker—and after all of the “no, really, I do want to fight you but this much smaller person is inexplicably able to hold me back” of the last meeting between these two teams, the ersatz fisticuffs started early in last night’s rematch at FedExForum with this message in a bottle from Vince Carter: when you think you're being slick and call your dad by his first namepic.twitter.com/tz5BLK0yoR — ☕netw3rk (@netw3rk) March 1,...
Why are the Grizzlies hard to talk about this year?

Why are the Grizzlies hard to talk about this year?

The Grizzlies, for all of their seeming success, have been difficult to pin down this year. It's hard to find a narrative through-line to the whole season in a way that makes it easy to frame what's currently happening in the context of the 2016-17 season as a whole. But why is that? What could be the causes of that? Instead of doing a Beyond the Arc podcast this week, I thought Phil Naessens and I could have a running conversation about it:
