Next Day Notes: Grizzlies 112, Flamengo 72

Next Day Notes: Grizzlies 112, Flamengo 72

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 ]
Thunder 117, Grizzlies 107: Let’s Play “Jump To Conclusions”

Thunder 117, Grizzlies 107: Let’s Play “Jump To Conclusions”

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 ]
Next Day Notes: Grizzlies 93, Hawks 88

Next Day Notes: Grizzlies 93, Hawks 88

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 ]
Next Day Notes, Preseason: Rockets 113, Grizzlies 93

Next Day Notes, Preseason: Rockets 113, Grizzlies 93

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.… ...

What to Watch For: Grizzlies @ Bucks

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 ]
Monday 2-Pointer: Is QPon Good? Is It Preseason Yet?

Monday 2-Pointer: Is QPon Good? Is It Preseason Yet?

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 ]
Five Haiku for Media Day

Five Haiku for Media Day

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 ]
Griz sign Michael Beasley, begin The Michael Beasley Project

Griz sign Michael Beasley, begin The Michael Beasley Project

Last night, news broke that the Grizzlies had reached an agreement with Michael Beasley. I'd seen somebody (I think it was Chris Vernon) tweeting that Beasley was working out with the Grizzlies, but I'd already assigned Beasley to the "Spurs" bucket in my head after reading pieces like this and this when the "Beasley to the Spurs" chatter really started going.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]
