O.J. Mayo keeps rolling along for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by alleyoop on Tuesday 19 January 2010 at 9:30 am

2nd year shooting guard O.J. Mayo is doing a great job again this season for the Grizzlies. He has played in 40 games (40 starts) and he is averaging 38.2 minutes, 18.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals per game. The Grizzlies have great balance on offense and Mayo is a big part of that because he is not selfish with the ball despite being a outstanding basketball player. That is was has made the Grizzlies so tough this season and that is because they are playing team basketball. I have no doubts that Mayo could probably score 23-25 points per game but the team is better because he isn’t.

Bryant Reeves is still all over the record books for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Saturday 16 January 2010 at 4:12 pm

Former center Bryant “Big Country” Reeves never made it to Memphis to play but he is all over the team’s record books due to his time in Vancouver. Reeves played in 395 games (341 starts) in his career with the Grizzlies and he averaged 30.6 minutes, 12.5 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. He is #4 all-time in games played (395), #4 in minutes played (12,071), #3 in rebounds (2,745), #5 in blocked shots (302) and #4 in points scored (4,945) in Grizzlies’ history. Hopefully the Grizzlies keep the young bunch of players they have now together for a while so they can bump Reeves down on a few of these lists.

The Memphis Grizzlies need more out of Michael Conley

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by alleyoop on Monday 11 January 2010 at 11:35 pm

Starting point guard Michael Conley doesn’t have the kind of game the Grizzlies need. He has played in 34 games (all starts) this season for the Grizzlies and he is averaging 30.1 minutes, 10.0 points, 2.1 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.1 steals per game. The Grizzlies need a pass first type of point guard to run the offense as they already have enough scorers on the team. It looks like Conley will be safe for the rest of this season as long as the Grizzlies don’t make a big trade to bring in someone like Andre Miller of the Blazers who would be a perfect fit on this team.

The Memphis Grizzlies claim Lester Hudson off waivers from the Celtics

Blogged under Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Friday 8 January 2010 at 9:19 pm

The Grizzlies have claimed 25-year old rookie shooting guard Lester Hudson off waivers from the Celtics. Hudson played in 16 games (0 starts) for the Celtics this season and he averaged 4.4 minutes, 1.4 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.5 assists. Hudson was a great offensive player at Tennessee-Martin in college so maybe he can help them off the bench.

The Memphis Grizzlies are happy with their trio of rookies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by alleyoop on Thursday 7 January 2010 at 10:25 am

The Grizzlies are happy with their back-up front court crew of rookies this year so far. Small forward Sam Young has been the best of this bunch so far this season. He has played in 34 games (1 start) for the Grizzlies so far this season and he is averaging 17.4 minutes, 8.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. Power forward DeMarre Carroll is not shooting too well this season hitting only 39.3% of his shots from the floor. He has played in 31 games (1 start) for the Grizzlies this season and he is averaging 13.9 minutes, 3.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. Center Hasheem Thabeet has been getting better each game this season. He has played in 30 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he is averaging 11.1 minutes, 3.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.1 assists and 1.1 blocked shots so far this year. Thabeet is shooting 60.9% from the floor so far this season (on mostly put backs and dunks) but he is only hitting 46.2% from the free throw line and that just won’t get it done.

Rudy Gay is playing well for the Memphis Grizzlies this season

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by alleyoop on Saturday 2 January 2010 at 8:27 pm

Rudy Gay is taking his game to a new level this season. He has played in 29 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this season and he is averaging 39.3 minutes, 21.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game. The Grizzlies are really starting to improve as a team and Rudy Gay has been a huge part of it. They need him to keep up the good work.
