Grizzlies Take Down Warriors In Game Three, Lead Series 2-1

Grizzlies Take Down Warriors In Game Three, Lead Series 2-1

Just what in the hell is going on here?

The 2014-2015 Golden State Warriors weren’t just an awesome team. They were historically awesome. Steve Kerr posted the best-ever winning percentage for a rookie head coach. Golden State’s net rating of 11.4 was 4.5 points ahead of the second-place Clippers. (L.A.’s net rating was closer to ninth place than first place.) Basically, the Warriors were a...

Warriors Top Grizz, 119 To—Wait, I'm Pretty Sure This Is A Video Game Score

Warriors Top Grizz, 119 To—Wait, I'm Pretty Sure This Is A Video Game Score

There’s been a terrible mistake. The AP, ESPN, even the NBA itself—they’re all recording the final score of last night’s Warriors-Grizzlies game as a 119-69 win for the Warriors, but clearly that is the score of some kid’s video game. I mean, ha ha, 119-69, get the fuck outta here, who would even believe that shit.

For chrissakes, didn’t anybody watch the broadcast? Clearly hackers had...

Who Will Be Healthy For The Western Conference Playoffs?

Who Will Be Healthy For The Western Conference Playoffs?

All season, we’ve been waiting for the Western Conference playoff bloodbath to start. Unfortunately, it’s looking like a lot of the blood has been spilled too early.

The two-to-six seeds in the West should seemingly provide the most drama when the postseason begins. Memphis, Los Angeles, Portland, San Antonio and Houston are all in the midst of a wild finish to determine homecourt and...

The Grizzlies Are Lance Stephenson's Right Now, And That's Entertaining As Hell

The Grizzlies Are Lance Stephenson's Right Now, And That's Entertaining As Hell

You know how Marc Gasol broke his foot, Mario Chalmers tore his Achilles, Zach Randolph’s knee ain’t happy, Brandan Wright has a messed up MCL, and all the Grizzlies had was Mike Conley and some randos? Well:

And yet, somehow, the Grizzlies are on a roll right now. They beat the Cavs the other day, and they look like a lock to get the five seed and a date with L.A. Last night they downed...

The Warriors Are Cruel

The Warriors Are Cruel

I won’t presume to know how Grizzlies fans were feeling during the first few minutes of last night’s Game 5 loss to the Warriors. It was certainly too early for them to be feeling confident, but the Grizzlies being up by double digits early, with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph doing their thing and the Dubs throwing turnovers all over the court, had to have elicted at least a few declarations...

No One Is Surviving The Memphis-Portland Series

No One Is Surviving The Memphis-Portland Series

Memphis took a 3-0 series lead on Portland last night, winning a third straight game on the backs of Marc Gasol and Courtney Lee.

This series between the No. 4 and No. 5 seeds in the West could have been one of the first round’s most interesting matchups. Portland plays an aesthetically pleasing style of basketball, running up and down the court and bombing threes at will. Memphis is a...

Mike Conley Traded To Utah Jazz For Some Crud

Mike Conley Traded To Utah Jazz For Some Crud

Remember the decade basketbloggers and analysts spent appending the word “underrated” to every single mention of Mike Conley’s name? Then he signed what was, at the time, the largest contract in NBA history, and everybody stopped calling him “underrated” for a while. Heh, well, about that.

According to a tweeted report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Memphis Grizzlies just traded Conley to...

Jeff Green Dunk Annihilates Entire Nation

Jeff Green Dunk Annihilates Entire Nation

Jeff Green threw down a dunk during tonight’s game against the Wizards that certainly shook anyone and everything associated with Washington, D.C. that we should expect to awake tomorrow to pure and unadulterated anarchy.

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

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 of song.” You can watch it above.

King of the Blues B.B. King Dead at...

Uh Oh, Suddenly The Thunder Are A Huge Pile Of Ass

Uh Oh, Suddenly The Thunder Are A Huge Pile Of Ass

The Oklahoma City Thunder went into the All-Star break having won 11 of 13 games, including victories over the 76ers, the Bucks, the Rockets, and twice over the Blazers. They went a season-best 18 games over .500 with an overtime win over Utah on February 22; since then, they’ve lost 11 of 16, and have dropped all the way to eighth in the Western Conference standings. They are in zero danger...

Hardcore Grizzlies Fan Proposes To Girlfriend By Asking, “Will You Grit N Grind With Me Forever?"

Hardcore Grizzlies Fan Proposes To Girlfriend By Asking, “Will You Grit N Grind With Me Forever?"

Every girl spends her youth dreaming of that perfect proposal from her dream guy. You know what I’m talking about. The one where you and Prince Charming are visiting fans at a March NBA game between two below-.500 teams. Harry The Hawk is there. A woman with a microphone is narrating to a semi-engaged crowd. And then he gets down on one knee and pops that beautiful question:

“Will you Grit N...

These Damn Memphis Grizzlies Suffer Another Exquisitely Painful Loss

These Damn Memphis Grizzlies Suffer Another Exquisitely Painful Loss

Things are getting mighty sad in Memphis . Franchise cornerstones Mike Conley and Marc Gasol are on the trading block. Their once-promising start to the season has spiraled nightmarishly into full-blown, total hell. Monday night they blew a 25-point lead at home and suffered through an agonizing last-minute Kyle Anderson meltdown en route to their 20th loss in 24 games. They need a win, but...

Damn Paul Millsap For Ruining This Sweet Nikola Jokic Pass

Damn Paul Millsap For Ruining This Sweet Nikola Jokic Pass

The experience of watching the Denver Nuggets play basketball is often reduced to alternating between two distinct yet equally powerful emotions. The first is religious ecstasy, sparked through witnessing the soft god Nikola Jokic in the act of miraculous ball distribution. The other is anguish, brought on by Paul Millsap trying and failing to do whatever it is Paul Millsap is supposed to be...

Grizzlies Explore New Depths Of Misery Via Excruciating Kyle Anderson Meltdown

Grizzlies Explore New Depths Of Misery Via Excruciating Kyle Anderson Meltdown

The Memphis Grizzlies spent the late stages of their Monday night home game against the Nuggets barfing away what had been a 25-point lead. Denver grabbed its first lead of the entire game with under a minute left in the fourth quarter; the teams traded buckets over the following 15 seconds (including an extremely ugly go-ahead post bucket from Nikola Jokic), leading to the following...

Trade Marc Gasol To The Lakers

Trade Marc Gasol To The Lakers

The Memphis Grizzlies are swan-diving at a high rate of speed to the bottom of the West , and according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski they’re finally ready to see about trading away the two aging faces of the franchise, guard Mike Conley and center Marc Gasol. The team would likely need to get a lot back for either player if it hopes to assuage a fanbase that came into this season with some...

The Memphis Grizzlies Are Circling The Drain

The Memphis Grizzlies Are Circling The Drain

Throughout the first half of the NBA season, the Western Conference standings were an intractable mess, with 14 teams all harboring legitimate hopes of nabbing a playoff spot. Young upstarts like the Mavericks and Kings threatened the balance of power, while established playoff mainstays like the Pelicans, the Jazz, and somehow the Rockets faltered. Something was inevitably going to break—it...

JaMychal Green Wrecks Ersan Ilyasova And His Wasted Theatrics With A Thunderous Dunk

The Memphis Grizzlies were never really in their Wednesday night loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, falling behind by double digits in the first quarter, later trailing by 31 points, and eventually yanking their starters at around the 25-minute threshold. The only positives to take away from the game, for Memphis, were small moral victories, like JaMychal Green dunking a flopping Ersan Ilyasova...

Grizzlies Agree That Chandler Parsons Should See Other People

Grizzlies Agree That Chandler Parsons Should See Other People

Chandler Parsons was a clear risk when the Memphis Grizzlies signed him to a four-year, $94 million contract: he was coming off consecutive knee surgeries in his last two seasons with the Mavericks. This maybe wasn’t the worst signing of the summer of 2016, but it is the one with the least surprising ending. Woj reports that Parsons and the Grizz are “separating” after a torn meniscus in his...

The Spiraling Memphis Grizzlies Are Now Punching Each Other

The Spiraling Memphis Grizzlies Are Now Punching Each Other

The Grizzlies lost to the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night, 101–94. It was an ugly, frustrating performance for a Memphis team that has now lost 10 of their last 13 games after a promising 15–9 start to the season. The angst and frustration appears to have boiled over in a team meeting held after the game:

Garrett Temple has been surprisingly indispensable for the Grizzlies this season, and...

An NBA Trade Just Fell Apart Because Someone Confused Two Guys Named Brooks

An NBA Trade Just Fell Apart Because Someone Confused Two Guys Named Brooks

I am, admittedly, not the typical source of NBA information at Deadspin, let alone in the sports journalism universe writ large. But it’s Friday, I live on the West Coast, I’m home sick with a sinus infection, and my husband is a huge Phoenix Suns fan. I’ve been hearing about this all night. Also, almost everyone else is at the company holiday party. So here goes!
