  1. New Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger says he’ll play starters less than Lionel Hollins did

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    The Grizzlies didn’t overly rely on any single player last season. Marc Gasol played 35.0 minutes per game (32nd in the NBA), Mike Conley 34.5 (40th) and Zach Randolph 34.3 (45th). But collectively, Memphis was extremely reliant on its starters Just three other teams – the Warriors, 76ers and Trail Blazers, who had four –…

  2. Report: Grizzlies sign Nick Calathes to two-year, nearly $2 million contract

    Aug 9, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

    Nick Calathes

    Nick Calathes rated No. 6 in the 2009 NBA Draft, according to John Hollinger’s statistical system – behind only Ty Lawson, Blake Griffin, Tyreke Evans, Austin Daye* and Stephen Curry. Back then, there was nothing Hollinger could do about Calathes falling to No. 45 in the draft. Now an executive for the Grizzlies, Hollinger has…

  3. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  4. Brandon Jennings says Pistons could become Lob City, pledges to change his game

    Aug 6, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    As he sat down for his new conference to introduce Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars muttered, “Oh my god.” I don’t know what Dumars was referring to at that moment, but I cant think of a better way to describe the experiment he’s conducting with the Pistons. Jennings at point guard with Josh Smith, Greg Monroe…

  5. Report: Grizzlies reach three-year deal with second-round pick Franklin

    Jul 25, 2013, 7:16 PM EDT

    Jamaal Franklin

    Jamaal Franklin was a great second round pick by the Grizzlies, maybe the best athlete in the draft and a first round talent they got at No. 41. The Grizzlies have locked him up with a three-year deal, reports Sam Amick of the USA Today. The deal is for basically the minimum (we don’t know…

    Jul 18, 2013, 5:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat player Miller laughs as he talks with Wade during a team practice ahead of Game 7 of the NBA Finals basketball playoff against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami

    In the end, neither the Cavaliers nor any other NBA team submitted a waiver claim for Mike Miller, who was amnestied by the Heat two days ago. Marc Stein of ESPN: Mike Miller, I'm told, has cleared waivers and is a free agent — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 18, 2013 I fail to understand why…

  7. Report: Timberwolves rejected trading ‘minimal’ for Tayshaun Prince

    Jul 15, 2013, 5:49 PM EDT

    Alexey Shved, Tayshaun Prince

    The four-year, $28 million contract Tayshaun Prince signed with the Pistons in 2011 didn’t necessarily make him overpaid, but it was definitely too long. Prince will make $7,235,955 and $7,707,865 the next two seasons, seasons that will end with him 34 and 35 years old. He played fairly well for an improved Grizzlies team, but…

  8. Grizzlies don’t renew Lionel Hollins’ contract

    Jun 10, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins

    May 28, 2013, 9:55 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Through the wickets. Nutmeged. Just plain showing up. Maybe this was the first real sign Monday night was not going to be the Grizzlies night. The Spurs were on a first-quarter run and Kawhi Leonard is bringing the ball up in transition and the Grizzlies do a good job of stopping the ball, so he…

  10. In impressive sweep, Spurs lay out path for future Grizzlies success

    May 28, 2013, 1:03 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    That was impressive, San Antonio. A sweep was just not something anyone saw coming (even those of us who picked the Spurs in the series). Tony Parker was again playing like the guy everyone wanted to put in the MVP conversation mid-season. All series long he would turn the corner off the pick and do…

  11. 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.…

  12. 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…

  13. For fun, here are the top 10 dunks of the second round (VIDEO)

    May 21, 2013, 8:08 PM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Reggie Jackson

    While the defensive minded teams are left (not so coincidentally) and that has some fans missing the flavor of the day in the NBA playoffs (Curry?), there have been some good plays. So for a little fun, here are the top 10 dunks of the second round of the NBA playoffs as compiled by the…

  14. Spurs/Grizzlies preview: Game 2 will be closer, but will that be enough for Memphis?

    May 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    Game 2 is not going to look like Game 1. Memphis is not going to get its doors blown off from the opening tip as happened in their Game 1 loss. You can expect better pick and roll defense out of Memphis. You can also expect better ball movement and more Zach Randolph. You can…

  15. 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…

  16. Tayshaun Prince dunks on pretty much half the Thunder (VIDEO)

    May 16, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Reggie Jackson

    Tayshaun Prince was channeling his 2004 self all of a sudden on Thursday night for a play (actually, for a lot of this series), running baseline-to-baseline on this play, getting out on the fast break and just throwing it down over Reggie Jackson and Serge Ibaka and it felt like half the Thunder. That is aggressive.…

  17. Clippers lose Blake Griffin, then lose to Grizzlies in Game 5

    May 1, 2013, 2:52 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Jordan, Griffin, and Billups watch their team lose to Memphis Grizzlies during Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Blake Griffin would have needed to be at full strength and then some if the Clippers were to have a shot at winning Game 5 and reversing the recent trends that the Grizzlies had established in the previous two games of the series in Memphis. A high ankle sprain suffered by Griffin in practice on…

  18. Seven players whose teams need them to step up big in the postseason

    Apr 20, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Jeff Green Since his 43-point game in mid-March (excluding Boston’s season finale, when regular players rested), Green has averaged 20.0, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. By any eye test, he’s looked excellent. But in that span, the Celtics have been outscored by 3.6 points per 100 possession with him on the court and…

  20. Tony Allen states the obvious: Memphis better without Rudy Gay

    Mar 15, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    Remember when Memphis traded Rudy Gay, getting back Tayshaun Prince and Ed Davis, and the consensus among television talking heads was this was going to set Memphis way back because they gave up all that shot creation? What they gave up was inefficient shot creation. What this trade allowed Memphis to do was focus on…

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like the Miami Heat have started to get focused and in the West it is the Spurs, Thunder and everyone else. The rest of the league has less than two months to state their case that they can knock one of those big three off. 1. Heat (40-14, last week ranked No. 2).…

  25. Detroit made its big trade already, don’t expect another

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Jose Calderon

    The Detroit Pistons have made a big move — Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye are out, Jose Calderon is in (part of the three team Rudy Gay trade). So as the trade deadline approaches, Pistons fans shouldn’t expect another big move, reports the Detroit Free Press. One source even said: “You have already had the…
