Beyond the Arc Podcast #69: Have a Nice All-Star Break

Beyond the Arc Podcast #69: Have a Nice All-Star Break

This week on the show, Kevin and Phil talk about: Heading into the All Star break, are the Grizzlies overperforming or underperforming our preseason expectations? Can they do both? The Grizzlies' big win over the Spurs and not-a-big-deal loss to the Golden State Warriors. How consistently good the Grizzlies' broadcast crews are on both TV and radio. Phil thinks the Grizzlies will end up with the 5th seed; Kevin says 5th or 6th. What would a Grizzlies/Jazz playoff series look like? Zach Randolph's great year coming off the bench, and what it says about...
Warriors 122, Grizzlies 107: Third Time’s Less Charming

Warriors 122, Grizzlies 107: Third Time’s Less Charming

The Warriors rolled into town on Friday night fully mindful of the fact that the Grizzlies were the team to hand them two of their eight (!) losses on the season. Even with Kevin Durant making his first return to Oklahoma City the following night, Golden State took to the floor with a focus not yet seen in the two previous matchups between these two—to me, the improvement in the way they defended the Grizzlies was even more impressive than the way they moved the ball and created good looks at the basket—and once the second half started, there was little chance the hometown team...
Slideshow Recap: Grizzlies 110, Suns 91

Slideshow Recap: Grizzlies 110, Suns 91

The Grizzlies beat the Suns badly last night—so badly, in fact, that the young guys on the end of the Suns bench almost started a fight in the last minute when Troy Daniels hit one too many extremely awesome long bombs right in their faces. Let's be clear, though: The Grizzlies were barely paying attention, listless and half-hearted, able to keep the Suns at a double-digit distance but not playing hard enough to really blow them out until garbage time. Brandan Wright looked good, a promising recent development. Vince Carter was out resting (he's been doing a lot of impressive...
Grizzlies 89, Spurs 74: Vince Carter’s Block Party

Grizzlies 89, Spurs 74: Vince Carter’s Block Party

You may not have been awake, but last night 17,000 of your friends and neighbors stayed out late at FedExForum to watch the Grizzlies beat the Spurs 89-74, one of the few such times that’s actually happened since the Griz eliminated the top-seeded Spurs in the 2011 postseason. Kawhi Leonard was a late scratch with a quad contusion, and the Griz made sure to capitalize on the opportunity presented them by his absence. It was a low-scoring affair (obviously) and at times it seemed impossibly so; the score after the first quarter was 17-14 Grizzlies. But despite the poor shooting...

Trail Blazers 112, Grizzlies 109: Sonnet Recap

Trail Blazers 112, Grizzlies 109: Sonnet Recap

The Grizzlies mounted a comeback in Portland last night but fell apart down the stretch. In honor of the three-point loss, a sonnet in the Petrarchan form. On The Grizzlies’ Disjointed But Hard-Fought Loss To The Trail Blazers of Portland on the Twenty-Seventh of January, AD 2017. Last night the Grizzlies could not quite come back; From op’ning tip they dug themselves a hole. With Tony Brothers’ calls out of control, In crunch time our Bears mounted no attack. The Grindfather’s decisions showed a lack Of care for...
Grizzlies 101, Raptors 99: Three Thoughts

Grizzlies 101, Raptors 99: Three Thoughts

The Grizzlies won a two-point game without scoring a single field goal in the final six and a half minutes against the Toronto Raptors last night, and this morning that feels like the miracle of miracles. A winnable game turned into another trademark Grizzlies nail-biter as Toronto made it a close game and the Griz offense collapsed in a heap of ashes, but the home team prevailed on a night which saw James Ennis and Zach Randolph (!) in the starting lineup against a Toronto team that’s currently sitting in second place in the Eastern Conference. In Which...

Beyond the Arc Podcast #67: Is it time to worry yet?

This week on the show, Kevin and Phil talk about: ESPN's Zach Lowe loves JaMychal Green and so do we With the Grizzlies' bad loss to the Rockets, is it time to start worrying? The Wizards game, and how real is a "schedule loss," anyway? Bigger All-Star starting snub: Marc Gasol or Russell Westbrook? The week coming up: Toronto is banged up, the Blazers aren't as good as we thought, and Utah plays tough and slow just like the Grizzlies.

Grizzlies 107, Kings 91: Game Notes

Grizzlies 107, Kings 91: Game Notes

The first time the Grizzlies welcomed former head coach Dave Joerger back to Beale Street manning the sidelines for a different franchise, they were greeted with a swift kick in the butt by an amorphous Kings squad. The second time around, things went much better for the men in blue. As is the Grizzlies pattern this season, they began the game at a snail’s pace, falling behind 9-0 before getting on the board. The Grizzlies followed the Kings hot start with a run of their own to put them briefly on top before eventually petering out near the end of an offensively unremarkable first...
