Report: Grizzlies Looking To Acquire Luol Deng Or Jeff Green

Luol Deng, Jon Leuer

If you don’t think Marc Gasol‘s impending free agency this summer isn’t at least partially the reason the Grizzlies are looking to upgrade their wing rotations, then you don’t understand how insecure small market teams feel when their stars are coming up for a new deal. League sources — aren’t they always — tell Marc Stein of ESPN.com the Grizzlies are looking to trade for Luol Deng or Jeff Green before the Feb. 19 trade deadline. Read More »

Video: Marc Gasol Hits Over-The-Backboard Floater

Marc Gasol

The Grizzlies are still missing Zach Randolph, which is their only saving grace after a 96-86 loss in Atlanta tonight. The Hawks beat them in every quarter except the last, which they only lost by a single point, but center Marc Gasol can hardly be faulted for the loss. His numbers were impressive on both sides of the ball, and while the Grizzlies lost, he certainly had the shot of the game. Read More »

Video: Tony Allen Misses Layup Then Three More Shots On Same Possession

Tony Allen

He brings so many things to the table for the Grizzlies, but sometimes Tony Allen can’t buy a bucket no matter how wide open, or how many attempts he gets to rip the nylon. After intercepting an Ed Davis pass midway through the second quarter of Memphis’ surprisingly close 109-106 win over the Lakers Friday night, Allen had a breakaway layup. Things went quickly downhill however. Read More »

GIFs: Giving Credit To James Harden For His Defense

James Harden, Courtney Lee

A couple weeks ago, James Harden was named Western Conference Player of the Week after dominating in a Rockets OT win over the Blazers. He was even better on Friday in Houston’s 117-111 overtime win over the Grizzlies, and we want to call attention to his clutch defense in that extra session, since we’re all so quick to point out when he bungles a defensive assignment.

Video: Vince Carter Turns Back Clock For Vintage Facial Jam On Rudy Gobert

Rudy Gobert, Vince Carter

Rudy Gobert is 22. The Utah Jazz center was a mere six years-old when Vince Carter made his professional debut in 1998, dunking his way to immediate superstardom. 16 years later, Vinsanity is far more likely to come off a barrage of three-pointers than a soaring poster jam. But the 37 year-old can still get up when the occasion calls for it. To wit, this vintage facial jam over the 7-2 Frenchman that left his Memphis Grizzlies teammates and all of FexEx Forum in a frenzy. Read More »

Memphis Grizzlies Buy Car For Staff Member Who Recently Had His Stolen

Mike Conley

The Memphis Grizzlies: America’s team? If the Grit ‘N Grind crew keeps winning games at a 21-4 pace and donating cars to unsuspecting team employees, that’s a more likely possibility than it seems. After a Memphis assistant named Brandon had his car stolen, Grizzlies players surprised him with a new one on Friday. Read More »

Memphis Grizzlies Beat San Antonio Spurs 117-116 In Triple Overtime Classic

Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol

The Memphis Grizzlies led the short-handed San Antonio Spurs by 23 points in the second quarter and 17 points in the third. But Gregg Popovich’s team doesn’t feel sorry for itself, and certainly doesn’t play the scoreboard. Thank god – we’d have been robbed of an all-time classic if it did. In a game containing multiple game-tying buzzer-beaters and much more clutch shot-making, the Grizzlies beat the Spurs 117-116 after three wildly entertaining overtimes. Read More »

Video: Marc Gasol & The Grizzlies End Warriors’ 16-Game Winning Streak

Klay Thompson, Marc Gasol, Marreese Speights

The Warriors and Grizzlies, who own the top two records in the NBA through the NBA’s first quarter of the season, squared off in Memphis last night, and the Grizzlies ended the Warriors franchise-best 16-game winning streak, defeating them 105-98. Despite the win, the Warriors were right in the mix late in the game, and with a hopeful return of Andrew Bogut from a lingering knee issue, they’ll do a lot better at stopping Marc Gasol, who led the way for Memphis with 24 points and seven rebounds in the home win.

Mike Conley Continues As NBA’s Most Underrated PG

Mike Conley, Jr.

Let’s play a game. On the count of three, name the five best point guards in the NBA.1…2…3…go! I’m sure the likes of Chris Paul, Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook came to mind. Other names you may thought of are Tony Parker, John Wall, Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo, and even Damian Lillard. But a player whose name likely didn’t rise up from the depths is Mike Conley, which has been an ongoing issue for the Grizzlies point guard. Read More »
