Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Monday 21 November 2016 at 9:10 pm

35-year old power forward Zach Randolph and 39-year old SG/SF Vince Carter are both proving to have a lot left in the gas tank so far in 2016-17 for the Memphis Grizzlies.  Randolph has played in 13 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 22.0 minutes, 14.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game.  He has now played in 491 games (441 starts) in his first 8 years with the Grizzlies and he is averaging 33.5 minutes, 17.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.  He has been an NBA All-Star two times for the Grizzlies (2009-10 and 2012-13).  Randolph is currently #3 in games played (491), #9 in assists (976), #7 in steals (397) and #4 in points scored (8,421) in Grizzlies’ history.  He is also the Grizzlies’ all-time leader in offensive rebounds (1,738), defensive rebounds (3,379) and total rebounds (5,117)!  Carter has played in 13 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 27.2 minutes, 9.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.  Carter has now played in 139 games (4 starts) in his first three years with the Grizzlies and he is averaging 17.6 minutes, 6.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.  The Grizzlies would be smart to manage the minutes for Randolph and Carter to keep them fresh and healthy this year.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Friday 4 November 2016 at 11:23 pm

26-year old small forward James Ennis and 26-year old power forward JaMychal Green both stepped up late last year, Ennis for the New Orleans Pelicans and Green for the Memphis Grizzlies when both teams suffered huge rashes of injuries.  They have continued to play well so far this year for the Grizzlies.  Ennis has played in 5 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 29.6 minutes, 12.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  Ennis is shooting 52.6% from the floor, 44.4% from the three point line and 75% from the free throw line so far this year.  Green has played in 5 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 31.2 minutes, 11.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game.  Green is shooting 47.9% from the floor, 43.8% from the three point line and 75% from the free throw line so far this year.  Ennis will likely only keep his starting gig until Chandler Parsons is ready to return to action.  He is recovering from a knee injury.  Green has smooth sailing to keep his starting power forward spot, as long as he keeps playing well.

The new guys are stepping up for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Thursday 3 March 2016 at 8:30 pm

When the Memphis Grizzlies dealt Courtney Lee and Jeff Green at the trade deadline, most “experts” laughed at the return outside of the draft picks (a first rounder and four second rounders).  But, 25-year old shooting guard Lance Stephenson, 23-year old shooting guard P.J. Hairston and 37-year old center Chris Andersen are all playing good for the Grizzlies.  Stephenson has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far and he is averaging 22.5 minutes, 11.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.  He is shooting an impressive 51.8% from the floor for the Grizzlies so far.  Hairston has played in 7 games (6 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 22.1 minutes, 9.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  Andersen has played in 7 games (2 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 16.7 minutes, 4.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.  The Grizzlies’ front office is looking like they really knew what they were doing at the trade deadline last month!
