The Grizzlies fire coach Mike Fratello

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Front Page by Nothing but Net on Friday 29 December 2006 at 12:32 am

Someone had to be the scapegoat for the poor start to the season for the Grizzlies…and that somebody was Mike Fratello. He will be replaced by the Grizzlies director of player personnel, Tony Barone, who will be introduced later today as the interim head coach. Fratello finishes as the winningest coach in Grizzlies history with a 95-83 record. Fratello had taken the Grizzlies to the playoffs in the two seasons prior to this year. The Grizzlies played their first 22 games without their best player Pau Gasol who broke his foot in the Summer World Championships, so it’s hard to blame Fratello for the mess that the Grizzlies are currently in. But, you can’t fire all the players.

Mike Miller leading team through dark times

Blogged under Front Page,Steppin Up by Nothing but Net on Tuesday 19 December 2006 at 4:07 am

Mike Miller is really having a good season. He’s averaging 13.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game so far this season. Miller has a fine all-around game and he’s a good shooter. Miller has been their best player while Pau Gasol was out, but now he can slide into his more comfortable role of #2 scorer.

The bright spot in this game was that Pau Gasol played in his first game of the season. Gasol didn’t play that well in the 17 minutes he was on the court. He was only 1 of 5 from the floor and wound up with 4 points and 3 rebounds, but it was nice to see him back. Better times lie ahead for the Grizzlies now that their best player is back.
