Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Game Recaps,General,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Wednesday 20 April 2016 at 4:14 am

I can’t sugarcoat this…..the Memphis Grizzlies sucked tonight!  They shot 32.6% from the floor, 14.3% from three point range and 55.6% from the free throw line tonight……which is pathetic!  Tony Allen led the way for the Grizzlies with 12 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals in 21 minutes off the bench.  Zach Randolph had 11 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal in 30 minutes on the floor, but he only shot 5 of 17 from the floor!  Matt Barnes pitched in with 9 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal in 30 minutes on the floor.  But, he only shot 3 of 11 from the floor and 1 of 4 from three point range!  The Grizzlies are now down 2-0 to the Spurs as the series shifts to Memphis.

Game #1: San Antonio Spurs 106, Memphis Grizzlies 74

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Game Recaps,General,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Monday 18 April 2016 at 12:27 pm

The short handed Memphis Grizzlies never had a shot last night in San Antonio!  The Grizzlies only shot 39.2% from the floor and they were not aggressive, as they only attempted six free throws in this game!  The Grizzlies were out-rebounded 44-35 and they played no D as the Spurs shot 51.9% from the floor and 43.5% from three point range last night!  Ancient Vince Carter led the way for the Grizzlies last night with 16 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 blocked shot in only 19 minutes on the floor.  Lance Stephenson pitched in with 14 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal in 19 minutes on the court.  Carter and Stephenson were the only two Grizzlies’ players to score more than 7 points last night, and that it pathetic!  The Grizzlies are now down 1-0 to the Spurs in this series.

Memphis Grizzlies (42-40) vs. San Antonio Spurs (67-15)

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Sunday 17 April 2016 at 3:03 pm

Memphis Grizzlies‘ head coach Dave Joerger is a master, as he somehow got them to the playoffs despite a massive amount of injuries to big time players.  The problem is that he is going to run into a buzzsaw in trying to match up with a Spurs’ team that is well rested, deep and very talented.  The Grizzlies are going to need Zach Randolph to step up and be the go to man offensively in this series.  It won’t be easy for Randolph either as he will have to score against Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge in the paint.  The Grizzlies are also going to need someone else to step up offensively in this series or they are going to have a hard time scoring points.  The Grizzlies are also going to have their hands full defensively in this series.

PREDICTION:  Spurs in four games!

The Memphis Grizzlies are getting solid work from their rookies lately

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 6:40 pm

21-year old power forward Jarell Martin, 23-year old point guard Briante Weber and 28-year old power forward Alex Stephenson are getting minutes for the Memphis Grizzlies due to widespread injuries and they have been stepping up so far.  Martin has played in 12 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 12.9 minutes, 4.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.  But, in his last four games, Martin is averaging 23.3 minutes, 12.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game.  Weber has stepped right into the starting lineup.  Weber has played in 3 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 35.3 minutes, 5.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.0 steals per game.  It’s not all rosy for Weber, as he is only shooting 31.6% from the floor so far for the Grizzlies.  Stephenson has played in 2 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies since recently signing with them and he is averaging 22.0 minutes, 8.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 blocked shot per game.  The opportunity is going to be there for these guys, so the Grizzlies need them to keep playing well.

Matt Barnes and Tony Allen are stepping up for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 6:34 pm

36-year old small forward Matt Barnes and 34-year old shooting guard Tony Allen have both been stepping up lately for the Memphis Grizzlies.  Barnes has played in 62 games (31 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 27.5 minutes, 9.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.1 steals per game.  In his last five games, Barnes is averaging 32.4 minutes, 15.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.0 blocked shot per game!  Barnes had a Triple-Double against the Pelicans last week in a Grizzlies’ win, as he finished up with 27 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 2 steals.  Allen has played in 52 games (45 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 24.9 minutes, 7.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.7 steals per game.  In his last five games, Allen is averaging 29.0 minutes, 13.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 3.2 steals per game.  With the rash of injuries the Grizzlies have suffered lately, they need Barnes and Allen to keep up the good work.

The Memphis Grizzlies sign Xavier Munford

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 1:13 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 23-year old point guard Xavier Munford to a 10-day contract.  Munford played in 41 games (37 starts) earlier this year for the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League and he averaged 33.7 minutes, 20.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  He has now played in 88 games (52 starts) in his first two years in the D-League and he is averaging 27.4 minutes, 15.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  He has yet to play in the NBA yet.

The Memphis Grizzlies add a couple of reinforcements

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 6:07 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 24-year old point guard Ray McCallum and 28-year old power forward Alex Stephenson (to a 10-day contract).  McCallum played in 31 games (3 starts) earlier this year for the Kings and he averaged 8.3 minutes, 2.2 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.1 assists per game.  He has now played in 144 games (43 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 18.0 minutes, 5.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.  McCallum and Briante Weber will likely share the point guard spot until Mike Conley returns to action (which is going to be a while).  Stephenson gives the Grizzlies a much needed big man.  He played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Clippers earlier this year and he averaged 3.0 minutes, 0.5 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.5 blocked shots per game for them.  He also played in 31 games (all starts) earlier this year for the Iowa Energy of the D-League and he averaged 34.2 minutes, 15.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.4 blocked shots per game.  Stephenson could get into the rotation as a backup player for the Grizzlies.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without Chris Andersen indefinitely

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 6:01 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 37-year old center Chris Andersen indefinitely due to a separated shoulder.  Andersen has played in 9 games (4 starts) for the Grizzlies since they acquired him from the Heat and he is averaging 16.9 minutes, 4.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.  Until Andersen can return to action, look for 31-year old center Ryan Hollins to play more.  Hollins has played in 20 games (3 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 12.1 minutes, 3.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without Mike Conley for the next 3-4 weeks

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 5:57 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 28-year old point guard Mike Conley for the next 3-4 weeks due to Achilles tendinitis.  He has played in 56 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he is averaging 31.4 minutes, 15.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game.  The loss of Conley combined with the loss of Mario Chalmers puts the Grizzlies in dire straits at point guard.  Newly signed 23-year old rookie Briante Weber made his Grizzlies’ and NBA debut in last night’s win and he played 40 minutes in which he scored 10 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out seven assists.  He also stole the ball once and blocked a shot.

JaMychal Green has been playing well for the Memphis Grizzlies as of late

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Friday 11 March 2016 at 3:41 am

Due to injuries, 25-year old power forward JaMychal Green is starting to get more minutes for the Memphis Grizzlies and he making the most of them.  He has played in 5 games (2 starts) for the Grizzlies so far in March and he is averaging 27.7 minutes, 14.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.  He has now played in 60 games (8 starts) so far this year for the Grizzlies and he is averaging 16.3 minutes, 6.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  He is shooting an impressive 51% from the floor, 41.4% from three point range and 76.5% from the free throw line so far this year.  Green is a player on the rise for the Grizzlies and they need him to keep up the good work!
