  1. Tony Allen is watching broadcast replays during game to find an edge

    May 27, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

    Grizzlies' Tony Allen celebrates on the bench during the third quarter in Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series against the San Antonio Spurs in Memphis

    There are certain things Tony Allen does. Play his pregame music at deafening volume, for one. Watch a lot of film to gain a defensive edge, for another. Allen is even trying to watch some film during games against the Spurs to gain an edge. That from a great note by Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com.…

  2. Preview: Did Grizzlies figure out Spurs or will Game 3 be more of the same?

    May 25, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Spurs' Parker drives to the net past Grizzlies' Dooling during the second quarter in Game 2 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series in San Antonio

    There have been seven quarters — 84 minutes — of the Western Conference Finals where the Spurs have looked much the better team. But the last 17 minutes — the fourth quarter and overtime, Memphis erased a 16-point deficit, pushed the game into overtime and made this start to look like the close series we…

  3. Three things about Game 2: Tony Parker is that good but Randolph, Grizzlies figuring it out

    May 22, 2013, 2:57 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    That was more like what we expected out of this series — close, intense, physical. Well, it was close for the final 17 minutes (just ignore the first 36), but in the end the Spurs got the win and are up 2-0 in the series. Here are three takeaways from this game. • Yes, Tony…

  4. Spurs shut down Zach Randolph in Western Conference Finals’ first major strategic move

    May 20, 2013, 9:22 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    Zach Randolph recovered the opening tipoff in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, and he didn’t touch the ball again until the possession following the Grizzlies’ first timeout. Moments after cameras caught Randolph and Tim Duncan sharing a laugh coming out of that timeout, Randolph ran a seemingly designed pick-and-pop with Mike Conley, caught…

  5. Spurs would like to remind you they are very good, crush Grizzlies in Game 1

    May 19, 2013, 6:35 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The San Antonio Spurs are never the “it” team. Never the sexy squad with high-flying stars casual fans gravitate toward in the postseason. The collective national will was behind Stephen Curry and Golden State last round. Then a whole lot of prognosticators — very smart, good ones — picked Memphis this round. The Grizzlies were…

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    The Grizzlies imposed their will on the the Clippers for the second straight game of the series, and as a result, we’re all tied at two games apiece. Memphis got monster performances from both Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol that allowed the team to pull away for a convincing 104-83 Game 4 win over the…

  8. Dominant Zach Randolph leads Grizzlies to Game 3 win over Clippers

    Apr 26, 2013, 1:42 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Zach Randolph

    Zach Randolph didn’t have much of an effect at all on the first two games of the Grizzlies playoff series against the Clippers in Los Angeles. In a must-win Game 3 situation once the series shifted to Memphis, he was the reason the Grizzlies stayed alive. Randolph finished with a game high 27 points and…

  15. Quincy Pondexter has sprained MCL, out indefinitely

    Dec 31, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Jae Crowder, Quincy Pondexter

    Quincy Pondexter has been giving the Grizzlies 23 minutes a night… not great minutes (6.7 points per game) but he was defending and knocking down threes at a 42 percent clip. However they are not going to have that for a while — he had to be carried off the court on Sunday night after…

  16. Rudy Gay not with Grizzlies due to personal reasons

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:57 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

  18. Grizzlies continue impressive start with road win over Thunder

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Marc Gasol Zach Randolph

    The Memphis Grizzlies look like a team ready to compete in the postseason. The Thunder look like a team still searching for answers. The result of the meeting between these two teams reflected that on Wednesday, as Memphis had little trouble in cruising to a convincing 107-97 win in Oklahoma City. When we last saw…

  20. Grizzlies trade Vasquez to Hornets for Pondexter

    Dec 24, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    VASQUEZ_GREIVIS

    In a trade that if it winds up affecting the NBA season means something has gone horribly horribly wrong, the Memphis Grizzlies traded guard Greivis Vasquez to the New Orleans Hornets for guard-forward Quincy Pondexter. Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins has spoken highly of guard Jeremy Pargo backing up it Mike Conley in preseason play,…

  21. Cole Aldrich is officially a Thunder

    Jul 8, 2010, 11:35 AM EDT

    New Orleans and Oklahoma City’s draft night trade that sent the draft rights to No. 11 pick Cole Aldrich to the Thunder has been approved by the league, according Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman. For a refresher: the Hornets received the draft rights to No. 21 pick Craig Brackins and No. 26 pick Quincy Pondexter…

  22. NBA draft: Sam Presti refuses to let the Thunder fade to the background, moves up to grab Cole Aldrich

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Sam Presti doesn’t just wait by the phone. He had antennae implanted in his brain years ago, for convenient and instantaneous connections to each and every GM in the league. Every time the draft broadcast goes 5 minutes without mentioning the Thunder or showing Kevin Durant, he makes a brain call and a subsequent move.…
