1. Memphis Redbirds, Grizzlies Partner for ‘Grit & Grind Night’ -

The Memphis Redbirds and Memphis Grizzlies play in different sports and at different levels, but for years the people running the teams acted as though they were quasi-rivals.

Change has been in the works for a while – the annual Cardinals Caravan was at FedExForum this winter when AutoZone Park was getting a makeover – but now a growing partnership is in even greater evidence.

2. Scheduled Good Times: The Next Grizzlies Season -

Turns out, Marc Gasol was wrong.

“I don’t think LeBron is coming through that door anytime soon,” Gasol said after the end of last season.

But in fact LeBron James, albeit wearing a Cleveland Cavaliers uniform, will come through the doors at FedExForum for the 2015-16 season opener on Wednesday, Oct. 28.

3. Preseason Analysis: Vols Will Defeat Oklahoma, Finish 8-4 -

Tennessee’s football team has something to prove as it concludes the first week of preseason practices and moves forward to the 2015 season.

The Vols must prove they belong in the national picture in Butch Jones’ third year as coach.

4. Every Year’s Different, and 2015 Belongs to Golden State Warriors -

It went six games, Golden State winning 105-97 in Cleveland to give the Warriors their first NBA championship in 40 years, Andre Iguodala winning the series MVP, and LeBron James saying he didn’t know if this loss hurt more than his three others in the NBA Finals.

5. Browne Named RISE Foundation Board Chair -

Terri Browne, chief people officer for Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc., has been named board chair of the nonprofit RISE Foundation, which seeks to improve the lives of low-income working Memphians through financial literacy.

6. Next Step: Returning Grizzlies Have to Be Better -

The possible return or exit of All-NBA First Team center Marc Gasol won’t be known for a while. So for our purposes today, let’s assume Gasol takes the mostly likely free agent path and signs a two-year deal with the Grizzlies that allows him to opt out after next season.

7. Reality Change -

“The ecosystem of the team is always live and is always shifting. You have to be able to adjust with whatever the situation might be at the time.”

– Marc Gasol

Roll those words from Marc Gasol over in your mind. Hold them up to the light so you can see them from every possible angle, so you can find hope, fear, inspiration, desperation and, last but not least, ambiguity and mystery.

8. This Grizzlies Era Will Stand the Test of Time -

Tony Allen, you’ll be happy to know, plans to be in town for much of the summer. Which means there’s always the chance you might run into him at the Zoo, a Redbirds game, on Beale Street, at the mall, and at any of those places he might suddenly stop, make that first down signal, and repeat what is now legend:

9. With barrage of 3-pointers, Warriors close out Grizz in Game 6 -

Stephen Curry said the Golden State Warriors didn’t find themselves until the Memphis Grizzlies “hit us in the mouth two games in a row.”

10. Warriors Make Adjustments to Even Series With Grizzlies -

In Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger’s mind there is a magic number, and that number is 100, as in points.

The Grizzlies were far from that number in losing Game 4 101-84 to the Golden State Warriors Monday, May 11, at FedExForum as Stephen Curry lived up to his MVP status with 33 points. The series shifts to Oakland for Game 5 Wednesday night, May 13, all even at 2-2.

11. Grizzlies Enjoy 2-1 Series Lead Over Warriors -

For hours, the cheering inside FedExForum had off and on sounded like so many jet airplanes – a tribute, perhaps, to Memphis International Airport pitchman Tony Allen.

12. The Joy of Tony Allen; Inflategate Worse Than Deflategate -

Wading in with a few quick takes …

If I had the money and the inclination to open up a bar on Beale Street, the name is set: One-Eyed Charlie.

Mike Conley’s masked-man performance in Game 2 as the Grizzlies defeated Golden State to even their Western Conference playoff series at 1-1 now stands atop the list of true grit-n-grind moments. And for the record, playing point guard with a broken face > than pitching with a bloody sock.

13. Grizz Aim to Make Memorable Win the Start of Long, Grinding Series -

They have made a memory. No matter what happens going forward, the Memphis Grizzlies have earned a measure of respect that cannot be stripped away like Tony Allen taking the ball from Klay Thompson.

14. Without Conley, Grizzlies Use Team Effort to Take Out Portland -

Zach Randolph scored the first six points of the game – “throw it to the hand” being an immediate and excellent choice.

Marc Gasol finished with a double-double – 26 points and 14 rebounds – and afterward spoke of team defense being the key component in the victory, saying, “It’s always our key.”

15. Shoot to Score: Lee and Grizzlies Find Touch and Go Up 2-0 on Portland -

Plenty of NBA players need to shoot less. But pretty much everyone on the Grizzlies roster is in agreement that guard Courtney Lee needs to shoot more.

And they told Lee so on a night when he would finish with 18 points, hitting on 8-of-11 shots from the floor, 2-of-3 from 3-point range.

16. Grizzlies-Blazers Series Just Getting Started -

Had this been an NFL Playoff game, Portland coach Terry Stotts would have summed up the just-ended season and perhaps said an optimistic word about next year.

17. Grizzlies Game 1 Victory ‘Like a Breath of Fresh Air’ -

For weeks, maybe months, the Memphis Grizzlies played as though they often didn’t have enough oxygen. It was as though during the last third of the NBA’s 82-game regular season, their air would be cut off at the start of the games, or for a quarter, or when trying to protect a lead.

18. Taking Care of Business -

The postseason is – take your pick – a new season, the second season, the only season that matters.

But before delving into the Grizzlies’ path in the NBA Playoffs, which starts with the Grizzlies as the 5 seed in a first-round Western Conference matchup up with 4-seed Portland Sunday night at FedExForum, a rewind is in order.

19. Gasol Keeps Grizzlies at Home for Game 1 of Playoffs -

Why not make Fan Appreciation Night simple?

Maybe that’s the question center Marc Gasol asked himself before going out and, despite a sprained ankle, scoring a career-high 33 points, pulling down 13 rebounds, and letting go a happy expletive after a sweet fade-away jumper didn’t even touch net.

20. Grizzlies Playoff Picture Muddled, but Another Clippers Series Very Possible -

Sit down, take a couple of aspirin – and no one will blame you if you reach for something stronger – and let’s try to figure out the maddening playoff possibilities for the Memphis Grizzlies.

21. Make Some Noise? Grizzlies’ Goals Still Attainable -

Stylistically, it was a bit of short of spectacular. No one on the Grizzlies cracked 20 points, the opponent was bound for the NBA Draft Lottery, and the game was less about buzz and more about finally taking care of business on the home court.

22. Grizzlies’ Carter, Lee Confident Long-Range Shots Will Fall -

The Memphis Grizzlies take and make fewer 3-point shots than any team in the NBA not named the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Yet in the early days of this season, when seemingly everything the Grizzlies did went right, guard Courtney Lee was at the top of the league’s 3-point shooting list and point guard Mike Conley wasn’t far behind.

23. Grizzlies Turnaround Not As Easy as Flipping a Switch -

Consider just one headline from Yahoo Sports to demonstrate how fast a single word in a quote can blow up and get the media and fans alike into panic mode:

“Have the Memphis Grizzlies gone ‘soft’ since going Green?”

24. Grizzlies’ Worries Shouldn’t Include Tony’s Temper -

What, you expected this Grizzlies season to be all wine and roses? Or in the Memphis vernacular, all microbrew and barbecue?

The NBA season does not work like that. Not even for the really, really good teams.

25. Three Questions Grizzlies Must Answer to Keep Momentum -

They have banked 39 wins and earned their current standing – emphasis on the word current – as the team with the second-best record in the Western Conference behind Golden State.

So if the playoffs started today….

26. One Team, Two Coaches: Grizzlies A Product of Hollins-Joerger -

Lionel Hollins’ departure from the Grizzlies was awkward, messy, ill-timed and could have been the start of a very disheartening chapter in franchise history.

“It could have been a train wreck, honestly,” point guard Mike Conley said.

27. Grizzlies Dominate Inside in Win Over Atlanta -

Guess which NBA team this player is talking about: “It’s a playoff team. It’s a team that’s going to play hard on every possession. Offensively and defensively they pay attention to executing.” That sounds a lot like what many opposing players passing through FedExForum this season have said about the Grizzlies. But it was Tony Allen talking about the Atlanta Hawks – after the Grizzlies defeated the Eastern Conference’s top team 94-88 here last Sunday night.

28. Dream Season -

The Grizzlies had just defeated the rival Oklahoma City Thunder before a loud sellout crowd in The Grindhouse and Jerry “The King” Lawler had defended his Memphis championship wrestling belt, albeit with an assist from the Grizzlies’ crack game operations staff.

29. Staxtacular to Feature Grizzlies Players -

The Soulsville Foundation and the Memphis Grizzlies are bringing the worlds of basketball, music and mentoring together at the foundation’s largest annual fundraiser, Staxtacular 2015.

Presented by SunTrust, Staxtacular will be held Feb. 7 from 7 p.m. until midnight at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

30. Grizz Atop Southwest Division Despite Challenges -

Playing without starting point guard Mike Conley (left wrist sprain) and swingman Tony Allen (left ankle sprain), the Grizzlies pounded the Mavericks 109-90 Tuesday night, Jan. 27, in Dallas and perhaps delivered a message to the rest of the Western Conference:

31. Staxtacular to Feature Grizzlies Players -

The Soulsville Foundation and the Memphis Grizzlies are bringing the worlds of basketball, music and mentoring together at the foundation’s largest annual fundraiser, Staxtacular 2015.

Presented by SunTrust, Staxtacular will be held Feb. 7 from 7 p.m. until midnight at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

32. A Better Sports Village Than We Knew -

When the historic 2014 University of Memphis football season was just getting started, hope and doubt were still equally matched opponents.

The athletic department, as we all know now, had gone with a risky slogan: “Wait Til This Year.”

33. Overtimes, Trade Dominate Grizz Weekend -

The Memphis Grizzlies have played a lot of big games and made a lot of moments in recent years at FedExForum. Sunday’s game against the Phoenix Suns, which required two overtimes and included Tony Allen, aka The Grindfather, hugging an inflatable birthday cake as fans serenaded him, was one of the wilder and stranger ones.

34. Grizz Take Advantage of Knicks -

While the New York Knicks were busy dismantling the wreckage that is the basketball franchise under the care of team president Phil Jackson, the Memphis Grizzlies simply wanted to grab the easy victory that had been set before them.

35. Losing Streak Ends Impressive Stretch by Grizzlies -

After the Grizzlies lost to the Chicago Bulls, their second six-game winning streak of the season coming to an end, Mike Conley made a fair point.

36. Grizzlies Halt Golden State’s Streak -

For the starters, the best part of Tuesday night’s statement win at FedExForum came while they were on the bench.

A 20-0 run to start the second quarter – all the points coming from the Grizzlies’ reserves – turned this showdown between the two best teams in the NBA into a 105-98 victory as Memphis (20-4) stopped the Golden State Warriors’ franchise-record 16-game winning streak.

37. All-Star Voting Opens, Includes Grizz Players -

The National Basketball Association and Sprint have tipped off NBA All-Star Balloting 2015 and Grizzlies fans can vote for their favorite Grizzlies players, including Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen and Courtney Lee.

38. Q&A: Mike Conley, Memphis Grizzlies Point Guard -

Fast Facts: Now in eighth NBA season, he set a career high in 2013-14 by averaging 17.2 points; was fourth overall pick of 2007 NBA Draft after leading Ohio State to the 2007 NCAA Championship Game as a freshman; father, Mike Conley Sr., won the gold medal in the triple jump in the 1992 Olympics.

39. Prince, Leuer Lead Grizzlies Bench Above the Rim and Under the Radar -

Let’s start with the dunks. Dunks by bench players – Jon Leuer and Tayshaun Prince – who don’t even know from night to night if they will get to play, never mind have an opportunity to catch a sliver of the spotlight.

40. Grizz Prove Elite Status With Mavs Win -

The Dallas Mavericks were doing what they do, ringing the offensive cash register early and often as they scored 37 first-quarter points and went 7-for-11 from 3-point range.

It might have been enough to bury some teams. It might have been enough to put previous Grizzlies teams in a deep hole. But when the first quarter ended Tuesday night at FedExForum, the Mavericks owned just a 37-34 lead.

41. Grizzlies Playing With Dominating ‘Edge’ -

After Marc Gasol had demoralized the Los Angeles Clippers – which is what 30 points and 12 rebounds from the Grizzlies’ slimmed-down center will do – coach Doc Rivers noted that Gasol “looked great, he’s playing with an edge. Very serious.”

42. Grizz Want NBA to Know They’re the Real Deal -

It was early. How else do you define an NBA game played on Nov. 17?

But it was important, the game seeming to hold value beyond the single win (which went to the Grizzlies) or the one loss (which went to the Houston Rockets).

43. Watching Kobe’s Empty-the-Clip Tour -

For those first few minutes, Kobe Bryant was toying with us. He passed the ball and he passed up shots – open and otherwise.

The crowd last Tuesday night at FedExForum seemed unnerved by this. Let’s face it, whether you come wearing a white No. 50 Zach Randolph jersey or a purple and gold No. 24 Lakers jersey, you come to see Kobe be true to his DNA.

44. Pushing Through the Mud, Grizz Start Fast Their Way -

How early is it in this NBA season? Early enough that a coach will reach for a college football analogy.

“This is a team that we have struggled with, going 1-3 with them in our division, a.k.a. the SEC West in football, where we went 4-12 last year.”

45. Voters Approve Wine, Amendments -

Shelby County citizens voted 2-to-1 Tuesday, Nov. 4, against a proposed amendment to the Tennessee Constitution that gives the Tennessee Legislature the power to regulate abortion, including in cases of rape or incest.

46. Voters Approve Wine, Constitutional Amendments -

Shelby County citizens voted 2-to-1 Tuesday, Nov. 4, against a proposed amendment to the Tennessee Constitution that gives the Tennessee Legislature the power to regulate abortion, including in cases of rape or incest.

47. Grizzlies Brass Has Challenge In Analyzing Player Minutes -

It took but a single game for one of the Memphis Grizzlies’ main dilemmas to present itself. Namely, what’s a coach to do when his starters are playing well and the bench is giving him almost nothing?

48. ‘Anything’s Possible’ -

Seated at the same table as guard Tony Allen for the Grizzlies’ 13th Annual Tip-Off Luncheon on Monday, Oct. 27, fan Kim Cherry couldn’t help but notice The Grindfather’s Army fatigues sport coat. It was the booming fashion statement of the day.

49. Allen, Lee Named Grizzlies Starters -

The guesswork over who would start on the wings for the Memphis Grizzlies on Oct. 29 in the season opener vs. Minnesota at FedExForum is over. Coach Dave Joerger has named Tony Allen and Courtney Lee starters, joining point guard Mike Conley, power forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol.

50. Grizzlies Find Respect Hard to Come By -

Perhaps it was a just coincidence. On the day that the results of the annual NBA General Managers’ survey were announced, ESPN was in Memphis for its only scheduled visit of the season.

Or perhaps this was no coincidence at all.

51. Allen, Lee Named Grizzlies Starters -

The guesswork over who would start on the wings for the Memphis Grizzlies on Oct. 29 in the season-opener vs. Minnesota at FedExForum is over.

Head Coach Dave Joerger has named Tony Allen and Courtney Lee starters, joining point guard Mike Conley, power forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol.

52. Allen, Lee Named Grizzlies Starters -

The guesswork over who would start on the wings for the Memphis Grizzlies on Oct. 29 in the season-opener vs. Minnesota at FedExForum is over. Coach Dave Joerger has named Tony Allen and Courtney Lee starters, joining point guard Mike Conley, power forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol.

53. Time is Now -

For now, the Memphis Grizzlies’ window of opportunity is open.

With four straight playoff appearances in the immediate past, there is no reason to believe the Grizzlies won’t get there again. But it’s not about just getting there, not about playing a tough seven-game series, as the Grizzlies did in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs against Oklahoma City last season, only to come home after a dispiriting Game 7 loss.

54. Once High-Flying Vince Carter in Different Role With Grizz -

At this stage of his NBA career, there are a lot of euphemisms for Vince Carter.

Veteran. Elder statesman. Old guy. Those were Carter’s own words when describing his exit in Dallas this summer, after owner Mark Cuban put a three-year, $46.1 million offer sheet in front of 25-year-old Chandler Parsons. The Benefactor indeed.

55. McDonald Re-Elected at Filing Deadline -

Bartlett Mayor Keith McDonald was re-elected to another four-year term of office at the noon Thursday, Aug. 21, filing deadline for candidates in four sets of suburban municipal elections on the Nov. 4 ballot.

56. Bartlett Mayor McDonald Re-Elected at Filing Deadline -

Bartlett Mayor Keith McDonald was re-elected to another four-year term of office at the noon Thursday, Aug. 21, filing deadline for candidates in four sets of suburban municipal elections on the Nov. 4 ballot.

57. Wine Referendums Down to Final Day -

The deadline for signatures to be gathered on the still-forming proposed referendums to allow wine in grocery stores is Thursday, Aug. 21.

The deadline for candidates to file in the set of Bartlett, Germantown, Collierville and Millington municipal elections on the November ballot is at noon the same day.

58. ‘Two Ears, One Heart’ -

The phone rings and rings at the Memphis Crisis Center – 19,000 times in 2013, or 2.2 times every hour, 52 times a day, 365 days a year.

Of the 19,000 calls logged last year, 1,301 – or 3.6 per day – were from people talking about killing themselves.

59. LeBron’s Contract: Best Bargain in Sports -

The money can drive you crazy, if you let it. Each day in Memphis we’re reading about “blue flu” and the city’s ongoing financial crisis.

With that as our local backdrop, it’s easy to become disgusted with the LeBron James sweepstakes that sort of looks like a steel cage (no, make that bank vault) death match between glitzy Miami/slick Pat Riley and hardscrabble Cleveland/thin-skinned Dan Gilbert.

60. Events -

Memphis Rotary Club will meet Tuesday, July 8, at noon at the University Club of Memphis, 1346 Central Ave. Dr. Diane Knight, medical center director for the Memphis VA hospital, will speak. Cost is $20 at the door. RSVP to taylor@memphisrotary.org.

61. A Wise Sports Fan Appreciates the Journey -

So what does Team USA’s soccer experience and the Memphis Grizzlies experience have in common?

You know, besides the obvious – playing against a bunch of floppers/whiners, be they from Portugal or Lob City?

62. Finals Presents Intriguing Question About Coaching -

So if the Miami Heat win a third straight NBA championship, it’s all about LeBron James and a cast of future Hall-of-Famers that includes Dwyane Wade, Ray Allen and, in a lot of people’s view, Chris Bosh.

63. Health Insurers Just Say No to Marijuana Coverage -

Patients who use medical marijuana for pain and other chronic symptoms can take an unwanted hit: Insurers don't cover the treatment, which costs as much as $1,000 a month.

Once the drug of choice for hippies and rebellious teens, marijuana in recent years has gained more mainstream acceptance for its ability to boost appetite, dull pain and reduce seizures in everyone from epilepsy to cancer patients.

64. Grizz Looking Forward to Next Season’s Grind -

Tony Allen, still believing, had “packed for a three-day trip to L.A.” and another playoff confrontation with the Clippers.

65. Z-Bo’s Future Dominates Grizz Talk -

If there was one thing that the Memphis Grizzlies’ seven-game playoff series with Oklahoma City didn’t lack, it was drama. There were four overtimes and several plot twists before the Thunder put the Grizzlies down in Game 7 as they played without Zach Randolph, who was suspended by the NBA for a hard push/punch in Game 6.

66. Thunder's 'Easy Points' Take Grizz Down 104-84 -

In a season dedicated to doing things the hard way, the Memphis Grizzlies are now face-to-face with a Game 7 on Saturday in Oklahoma City.

Able to survive blowing leads, able to win three of four overtime games to take a 3-2 series lead over the No. 2 seed Thunder, the Grizzlies could not stomach their fleeting prosperity. In fact, they could not even make Game 6 Thursday night on their home court anything close to competitive.

67. Tactical Urbanism: Citizen Projects Go Mainstream -

MEMPHIS (AP) – The city painted a crosswalk and installed tennis-ball green signs, but the cars just kept on zooming through. But rather than wave a white flag, Sarah Newstok grabbed an orange one instead.

68. Heisley’s Legacy: Believing in Memphis -

It is said that the famous have their lives summed up in the first paragraph of their public obituary.

The first sentence from a recent obit in The New York Times read: “Michael Heisley, the billionaire financier, who bought the N.B.A.’s floundering Vancouver Grizzlies in April 2000 and soon moved them to Memphis, where he revitalized the franchise, died on Saturday in Illinois. He was 77.”

69. Best of Three -

After the Game 3 victory in overtime, Tony Allen made it plain that the Grizzlies were all about stopping Oklahoma City stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

70. Grizz Nation Rallies Around Entire Team -

It was a natural enough question, but if you’re a Grizzlies fan you had to love the answer.

On Wednesday, April 23, a day before Game 3 of the Grizzlies’ first-round series with Oklahoma City, a visiting reporter asked Tony Allen (who played at Oklahoma State) if he was finding extra motivation from playing the Thunder.

71. Allen, Grizz Ready for Thunder’s Adjustments -

If Kevin Durant is Superman then Tony Allen is … that’s right, kryptonite. At least that was the contention in at least one Internet headline after Allen rendered Durant mortal in the Grizzlies’ overtime win in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series at Oklahoma City.

72. Joerger Still Floating After Epic Game 2 -

About 12 hours after the Memphis Grizzlies’ epic 111-105 overtime victory at Oklahoma City Monday, April 21, in Game 2 of a first-round Western Conference Playoff series, coach Dave Joerger was still trying to find his voice.

73. No Bluffing -

Each season the last home game at FedExForum is Fan Appreciation Night and a Grizzlies’ player is charged with grabbing the microphone and walking to center court to say a few words before tip-off.

74. Wharton Outlines $596 Million Budget Plan -

Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr. warned Tuesday, April 15, that “half measures” in converting city employees to a defined contributions benefits plan would not restore the city’s financial health and resolve an unfunded pension liability of hundreds of millions of dollars.

75. Tony Back to Being Tony in Key Win -

Someday a professor of sports science will write a book on the Grizzlies’ Tony Allen or the good professor’s head will explode in the trying.

76. Grizzlies Ice Heat in ‘Huge’ Win -

A day earlier, the Grizzlies had talked a like a team that had misplaced its identity. The coach spoke of the team losing its “swagger.” The players spoke of still having everything in front of them – “we control own destiny” was mentioned more than once – and yet the prevailing feeling was one of doubt.

77. Avoiding Heartache -

The Grizzlies had just watched the Golden State Warriors score 14 straight points to turn a seven-point deficit into a 100-93 victory. Yet Memphis coach Dave Joerger rejected the notion that the Grizzlies, who also happened to miss their last seven shots in the fourth quarter, had lost the game more than the Warriors had won it.

78. Rested Grizz Prep for Playoff Push -

Historians, not to mention members of the 1985-86 Boston Celtics bench, will note that in the Grizzlies’ recent victory over the Utah Jazz the Memphis bench shot 42.9 percent: significant because it ended a stretch of 14 straight games of the bench shooting 50 percent or better, the longest such streak in the NBA since those Celtics did so in 15 consecutive games.

79. Grizz Players Also Have March Madness -

Point guard Mike Conley played in an NCAA title game with Ohio State. Mike Miller did the same with Florida.

80. Wins Come in Various Ways -

One night at FedExForum, the Grizzlies beat Portland by 10 points as they shoot a season-best 56 percent, three players score 17 or more points, and energizer James Johnson never gets on the floor.

81. Score-Watching Grizz Can’t Lose Sight of Opponents -

Two hours before the Grizzlies played the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at FedExForum, Memphis coach Dave Joerger talked about the last loss – at Charlotte – the game ahead, and that aggravating play that recently invaded Memphis living rooms, including Joerger’s own.

82. Fans Welcome ‘Grindfather’ Back -

Decades from now, it might be the first story Tony Allen tells. The night Allen returned to the FedExForum court for the Grizzlies, after missing more than a month with a wrist injury, and when he checked into the game he received a standing ovation.

83. Hobbled Grizzlies Won’t Go Down Without Fight -

Two years ago, Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph returned from a torn MCL in his right knee and essentially finished out the season on one leg.

In other words, Randolph walked – or hobbled – in the high tops that center Marc Gasol now wears as he plays with a brace on his left knee after returning to the court following an MCL sprain that kept him out of 23 games.

84. Grizz Look at Final 30 With Hope for Strong Finish -

As the Grizzlies took their leave from FedExForum, having won their last home game before the NBA All-Star break, forward James Johnson looked toward the next night’s game at Orlando. He made clear that the Grizzlies were not thinking of Disney World or any other fantasyland, but were committed to the work immediately in front of them.

85. Stretch Against East Teams Pivotal for Grizz Playoffs Push -

It wasn’t unthinkable that Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks would come into FedExForum and win. They were, after all, protecting a one-game lead over the Grizzlies for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference, Nowitzki has been on a hot streak, Rick Carlisle is one of the NBA’s best coaches and the Grizzlies were without point guard Mike Conley.

86. Playoffs Implications -

The calendar says the Dallas Mavericks will be at FedExForum to play the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, Feb. 5. Just one game of 82 in the coast-to-coast marathon that is the NBA season.

But it’s a game that has the potential to weigh heavily on the Grizzlies’ ultimate playoff fate. The Mavericks come in sitting in the eighth and final playoff position in the Western Conference with a record of 28-21.

87. Ethics Complaint Against Chism Dismissed -

It was commissioner against commissioner in the highest profile use so far of Shelby County government’s current ethics policy.

And the dispute that affected the commission’s deliberations on a county property tax rate ended last week with a three-citizen panel dismissing County Commissioner Terry Roland’s complaint against fellow Commissioner Sidney Chism.

88. Ethics Panel Dismisses Roland Complaint Against Chism -

The highest profile use of Shelby County government’s ethics policy since it was implemented in 2008 has ended with the three-citizen panel hearing a complaint by County Commissioner Terry Roland against fellow Commissioner Sidney Chism dismissing Roland’s claim.

89. Ethics Panel Dismisses Roland Complaint Against Chism -

The highest profile use of Shelby County government’s ethics policy since it was implemented in 2008 has ended with the three-citizen panel hearing a complaint by County Commissioner Terry Roland against fellow Commissioner Sidney Chism dismissing Roland’s claim.

90. That’s Entertainment -

It was late in Game 6 of the Grizzlies’ 2013 playoff series with the Los Angeles Clippers. Already, FedExForum was abuzz with anticipation. The hated Clippers were about to go down. Grizz, the team’s chest-thumping mascot, scaled a ladder inside the arena and unfurled a banner:

91. Grizzlies Now the Team Getting Kicked Around -

It is no longer too early to determine the highlight of the Grizzlies 2013-2014 season.

It happened on Nov. 18 in Los Angeles when Tony Allen jumped and inadvertently kicked Clippers guard Chris Paul in the face.

92. Grizz Games Ending in Predictable Fashion -

Point guard Mike Conley stood at his locker after the Grizzlies had lost their third straight game, seen their home record drop to 5-9 (they were 32-9 at home last season), and their overall record fall to 10-13.

93. Shooting Woes, Injuries Piling Up for Grizzlies -

Even open shots, depending on who is taking them, are not necessarily a good option. So says coach Dave Joerger and, yes, that’s how bad the Grizzlies’ offense has become.

The Grizzlies mustered just 82 points in a 26-point loss to Golden State on Saturday, Dec. 7 at FedExForum, and it was most notable for the fact that, well, such losses are no longer notable.

94. Grindhouse Now House of Horrors for Grizzlies -

The Grizzlies just started a six-game homestand with a loss – their fourth in a row at FedExForum.

Seems The Grindhouse has turned into a fun house for visiting teams this season as they have gone 5-3 against the Grizzlies.

95. Grizz Make Adjustments Without Center Gasol -

In the immediate aftermath of All-Star center Marc Gasol’s knee injury, frontcourt mate Zach Randolph had a simple plan.

“Man, praying, praying,” Randolph said after Gasol limped off the FedExForum court during the Friday, Nov. 22, game won by the San Antonio Spurs. “Need him.”

96. Looking for Last Season’s Grizz to Make Appearance … Now -

The Grizzlies are going out on a four-game road trip that starts with a Friday, Nov. 15, game in Los Angeles against the Lakers. Maybe a change of scenery will do them good. After a 3-5 start to the season that feels even worse than the record, a change of scenery is as good an idea as any.

97. Grizz Proving They Have a Lot to Prove -

To the question, how patient are Grizzlies fans willing to be, we now have a definitive answer.

Their patience broke as the third quarter ended Wednesday, Nov. 6, at FedExForum. Their Grizzlies – that gritty, lovable bunch that won 56 games last season and went to the Western Conference Finals – trailed the New Orleans Pelicans by 22 points.

98. ‘Intertwined’ -
