Grizzlies Hold Pregame "Moment Of Song" In Memory Of B.B. King

Memphis legend B.B. King died last night, and given his importance as a cultural icon to the Blues capital, it was a given the Grizzlies would do some sort of tribute before tonight’s Game 6 against the Warriors. But the occasion didn’t call for the standard moment of silence; instead, the Grizzlies produced a “moment… » 5/15/15 10:07pm 5/15/15 10:07pm

An Absurd Defensive Adjustment Won The Warriors The Game

After being manhandled by the Grizzlies in Games 2 and 3, the Warriors needed to do something different in Game 4. A lot of suggestions—double team Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph in the post, play Steph Curry off-ball, more David Lee—were bandied about, but instead Steve Kerr went with something more radical than… » 5/12/15 1:22am 5/12/15 1:22am

Two-Shootin' Beno Udrih Killed The Blazers And It Was The Best

That the opening game of the Grizzlies-Blazers series ended up being dominated by the work of a slick, cold-blooded midrange jumpshooter makes sense. Probably all of us expected that to happen at least a few times in the series, anyway. Probably most of us expected that player to be Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge, one… » 4/20/15 12:39pm 4/20/15 12:39pm

Vince Carter's Old-Man Dunk Makes Me Happy

Let's be honest, this probably isn't a bloggable dunk if it had been done by, say, Terrence Ross or Gerald Green. A good-but-not-great dunk is a little more noteworthy, however, when it's 37-year-old Vince Carter throwing it down, showing us all that sometimes—even when you're a shell of your former self and your best… » 12/23/14 10:14am 12/23/14 10:14am

Everybody Do The Andre Iguodala Travel Dance!

Late in last night's game between the Grizzlies and Warriors, Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley dropped in a layup that put his team up 95-88 with three minutes to play. Warriors forward Andre Iguodala thought Conley took one too many steps on the drive, and he used the language of dance to express his displeasure: » 12/17/14 12:14pm 12/17/14 12:14pm

Vince Carter Receives Standing Ovation, Cries During Return to Toronto

Vince Carter's Memphis Grizzlies are playing in Toronto tonight, and for the first time since the Raptors traded the former Air Canada to the Nets in 2004, he was cheered. Carter has played 16 games in Toronto since the trade—including a playoff series in 2007—and in every single one of them he was vociferously booed.… » 11/19/14 8:58pm 11/19/14 8:58pm

Buzzer-Beating Tip-In Winner Called Good After Five Minutes Of Replay

The Memphis Grizzlies somehow pulled out a 111-110 win tonight at home over the Kings thanks to a buzzer-beating inbound pass-to-tip-in from Vince Carter to Courtney Lee with just 0.3 seconds remaining. It then took officials nearly five minutes to declare the basket good and to allow the Griz to celebrate. » 11/13/14 10:48pm 11/13/14 10:48pm

Tony Allen Gets Frustrated, Smacks Cameraman's Camera For Some Reason

Cameramen creep up on the baseline at NBA games, and sometimes that causes players to fall into the media line after a foul or shot. But Tony Allen was nowhere near one cameraman during last night's game against the Pelicans, so it makes no sense why he turned around and smacked the guy's camera after a foul. » 11/04/14 12:00pm 11/04/14 12:00pm

Anthony Davis Comes Out Of Nowhere For The Putback Dunk

Welcome to the latest edition of Anthony Davis Does Something You've Never Seen Before. Today we have him launching himself from just in front of the dotted line, extending his Groot arm to collect a shot that clanged high off the rim, and then throwing down the putback dunk over poor Zach Randolph—all in one fluid… » 11/04/14 9:33am 11/04/14 9:33am
