1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. 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.

14. 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.

15. 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.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. 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:

19. 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.

20. 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.

21. 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.

22. 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.

23. 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.”

24. 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.

25. 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.

26. ‘Intertwined’ -

In 2007, the Grizzlies were no longer a novelty in Memphis. They also were no longer a playoff team. Rather, they were a punch line lost in the expansive blue and gray shadow of the University of Memphis and a fast-talking operator/coach named John Calipari.

27. Grizz Desperately Seeking Strong Finish to Preseason -

Seven practice tests down, one to go. So far, the results have been mixed as the Grizzlies under first-year coach Dave Joerger at times have looked more dynamic, but also more erratic on offense and less devoted to playing defense.

28. Grizzlies Make Appearance on Annual GM Survey -

The results from the 12th annual GM survey from NBA.com are in and the Grizzlies show up in several categories. But Tony Allen was the only player to finish first in a category as the league’s general managers voted him the league’s best perimeter defender.

29. Leuer, Davis Provide Bright Spots in Preseason Loss -

October makes for some great postseason baseball. But the preseason basketball? Not so great.

The Grizzlies were, at times, flat-out ragged in their play while losing 95-90 to the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday, Oct. 9, at FedExForum. It was especially rough in the early going as in the first half the Grizzlies made 13 of their 17 turnovers while running first-year coach Dave Joerger’s new offense aimed at moving the ball sooner in the 24-second shot clock.

30. Good Feelings Abound as Grizz Open Camp -

The immediate past features a franchise-best 56-win season, a first-ever trip to the Western Conference Finals and a declaration from ESPN The Magazine that the Memphis Grizzlies are the No. 1 pro sports franchise in North America.

31. Levien Discusses Grizzlies’ Accolades, Offseason Focus -

A day after the news broke that ESPN The Magazine had crowned the Memphis Grizzlies the best franchise in North American pro sports, team CEO Jason Levien sat down for a one-on-one interview with The Daily News.

32. Miller: Grizzlies ‘Right There’ on Path to Winning Championship -

Mike Miller had several teams interested in his 3-point shooting as a possible missing link for a long playoff run. It didn’t take him long to figure out where he wanted to be: Memphis.

33. Grit ‘N’ Grind Lives On in Memphis -

With apologies to the Rolling Stones, the Grizzlies’ off-season is its own lesson on the difference between what you want and what you need.

As yet, that much-desired pure 3-point shooter has not parachuted into Memphis. But the Grizzlies did what they needed to do, retaining free agent guard and fan favorite Tony Allen; reportedly, they have agreed in principle to a four-year, $20 million guaranteed contract.

34. Coaching Hire Presents Risk/Reward for Grizz -

So the Grizzlies finally made it official and promoted lead assistant Dave Joerger to head coach. This qualified as breaking news about as much as reporting that barbecue has been discovered in Memphis.

35. NBA Playoffs Serve as Reminder: Players More Valuable Than Coaches -

Game 6 of the NBA Finals was a lot of things, including epic and unbelievable and an instant classic. But it was also something else: a vivid reminder that players matter more than coaches.

From TV to Twitter San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, roundly recognized as the best coach in the NBA, took much criticism for the Spurs letting go of a 5-point lead with 28.2 seconds remaining as their fifth NBA title vanished – at least for a night.

36. Morris to Lead Main to Main Project -

Downtown Memphis Commission President Paul Morris will become the new project director for the Main Street to Main Street revitalization project that includes a Harahan Bridge boardwalk.

37. Morris to Lead Main to Main Project -

Downtown Memphis Commission president Paul Morris will become the new project director for the Main Street to Main Street revitalization project that includes a Harahan Bridge boardwalk.

38. Grizzlies Confident Despite Odds Against Them -

The Grizzlies have to win four of five to beat the San Antonio Spurs and advance to the NBA Finals. In other words, if reality itself could hold up a towel it would read: “I don’t bluff.”

The Grizzlies dropped the first two games in San Antonio and, historically speaking, a fool would soon part with his money if betting on the Grizzlies to come back and win the series. Because when a team wins the first two games of a seven-game series, it goes on to win that series 93.7 percent of the time. The Grizzlies already have upset these odds once, falling behind the Los Angeles Clippers 0-2 in this year’s opening-round playoff series before rallying to win four straight.

39. Grizz Win With Tony Being Tony -

Had things turned out differently, we would know too well Rule 12, Section V, item a, from the NBA rulebook:

“An official may assess a technical foul, without prior warning, at any time. A technical foul (s) may be assessed to any player on the court or anyone seated on the bench for conduct, which in the opinion of the official, is detrimental to the game. The technical foul must be charged to an individual.”

40. Grizz Claw Into Conference Finals -

His team had just overcome a 17-point first-half deficit and beaten Oklahoma City in overtime to win Game 4 and take a commanding 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal series. So someone asked Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins if he was impressed.

41. Grizzlies Take Down Thunder in Overtime -

Moments before Game 4 of the Grizzlies-Oklahoma City playoff series tipped off at FedExForum Monday night, Tony Allen, Mike Conley and Marc Gasol stood at midcourt to be recognized for making the NBA’s All-Defensive teams (Allen first-team, Gasol and Conley second-team).

42. Grizzlies Must Maintain ‘Thirsty Dog’ Mentality -

As the Grizzlies’ series with the Oklahoma City Thunder shifted to Memphis for Game 3 on Saturday, May 11, the Grizzlies found themselves in much better position than during the Clippers’ series.

Instead of staring up at a 0-2 deficit, their Game 2 victory tied the series 1-1 and has allowed them the possibility to advance to the Western Conference Finals just by winning three games at FedExForum.

43. Grizzlies Trying to Create Season to Remember -

Disappointments past can set up unmitigated joy in the present. At its best, that’s how this whole sports fandom thing works.

You invest yourself emotionally (yes, perhaps financially, too) and if you hold the stock (your loyalty) long enough, there’s a nice payoff.

44. Harahan Bridge Project Plans Nearing Completion -

Design work on the “Main to Main Connector” project is at the halfway point. And the city team overseeing the project is due to complete plans by the end of May to trigger a $15 million appropriation of federal funding in June.

45. Z-Bo, Defense Bolster Grizz in Win -

In Game 1 in Los Angeles, the Grizzlies were missing in action. In Game 2, they were just good enough to lose by two points.

So Game 3 Thursday night at FedExForum provided a choice: win or try to become the first team in NBA history to rally from a 0-3 deficit to win a best-of-seven playoff series.

46. ‘Old School’ Gasol Feted As League’s Top Defender -

The NBA’s new Defensive Player of the Year was remembering another ceremony, more than a decade ago at The Pyramid.

“I was just a little kid watching my older brother be happy to be recognized,” center Marc Gasol said.

47. ‘Real Big Decisions’ Looming for Grizzlies -

The Grizzlies returned from Los Angeles down 2-0 to the Clippers, the idea of “Believe Memphis” being put to the test.

Thursday night, April 25, the Clippers and Grizzlies were to play Game 3 at FedExForum, and then Saturday, April 27, Game 4.

48. Clippers’ Bench Spells Trouble for Grizzlies -

The Los Angeles Clippers may or may not prove to be serious Western Conference title contenders. Count TNT analyst Charles Barkley as their No. 1 doubter, having called them “fool’s gold” and compared them to a pretty girl that steals your heart only for you to discover she is “dumb as a box of rocks.”

49. Grizzlies Shift Gears Into Playoff Mode -

Center Marc Gasol is never happy after a loss. Sometimes, he is not in a good mood after a victory because, like a coach, he sees the potential for future failure if the Grizzlies don’t play hard, focused and together.

50. Grizzlies Proving Their Brand is Winning Games -

The long-term benefits of the Grizzlies’ 90-89 overtime win against the Oklahoma City Thunder, if there are any, won’t be known for a while. The Western Conference playoff standings are ever-changeable.

51. Patterson Warehouses Adds Space -

Patterson Warehouses Inc. is boosting its longtime local presence with a new lease in DeSoto County.

The renowned player in Memphis’ third-party logistics industry is leasing 237,952 square feet of Class A space in Marathon Distribution Center, 295 Marathon Way in Southaven.

52. Grizz Showing Scrappiness as Final Stretch Awaits -

Ever notice how the view from the winning and losing locker rooms is never the same, even though the teams played in the same game?

On Wednesday, Feb. 27, at FedExForum, the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks conspired, perhaps unwittingly, to set or match several season and franchise records (we’ll get to the numbers in a moment). But the shorthand for what happened is that the Mavericks won the first quarter, 38-19; the Grizzlies won the third quarter, 24-5; and ultimately Memphis overcame a 25-point first-half deficit to steal a 90-84 victory.

53. FTN Financial Grows With New Offices, Hires -

First Tennessee Bank’s capital markets subsidiary has been on a tear lately. FTN Financial has grown on several fronts, including with the addition of a public finance department as it expands into the general market municipal bond sector and with the opening of new offices as part of that expansion. The company also has opened additional new offices around the country and added employees in other areas to handle general growth.

54. Nothing Too Absurd With These Grizz -

Trade 40 percent of your bench to Cleveland, play the Lakers the next night, and everything will be just fine. The Fakers are so bad they might not beat El Segundo Middle School at their gym.

But so what? Teams that make trades to avoid the luxury tax – small-market beggars – can’t be choosers. So the Grizzlies graciously accept the 106-93 victory, marvel at the 27-14 record and No. 4 spot in the Western Conference standings, and do all they can do to keep it going.

55. Tony and DJ: The City’s Basketball Game-Changers -

The supreme talents – the All-Americans, the All-Stars – can take possessions off and still score their 25 or 30 points a night. They can pick their spots to play defense, which in reality means going for a steal here and there, and then mostly defer on the hard work. You know, staying with their man step-for-step, cleaning the glass – sorry, I don’t do windows – or risking humiliation by contesting potential dunks – sorry, I’m not ending up on somebody’s poster.

56. Pre-Grizz Comments Show Change is Coming -

Deadspin.com has been getting a lot of publicity for breaking the story about the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax. But the site also compiled a list that is of far more relevance to local NBA fans:

57. By the Numbers -

John Hollinger is a familiar sight at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, the event Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has jokingly described as Geekapalooza.

Hollinger was a panelist this past March at the most recent conference, when he was still an ESPN columnist and a few months away from being offered a job in the Memphis Grizzlies front office.

58. Grizzlies Proving Life After Mayo Just Fine -

It seemed only fitting that on the night O.J. Mayo returned to Memphis with the Dallas Mavericks – averaging 20 points a game and leading the NBA in 3-point shooting – that Mike Conley would break the Grizzlies’ franchise record for career assists.

59. Memphis Bar Association Announces New Positions -

The Memphis Bar Association has its new officers for 2013.

Linda Warren Seely, director of private attorney involvement with Memphis Area Legal Services Inc., is the 2013 president. Kirk Caraway, an attorney with Allen, Summers, Simpson, Lillie & Gresham PLLC, is the new vice president. Tommy Parker, an attorney with Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC is the new secretary/treasurer.

60. Memphis Bar Association Announces New Positions -

The Memphis Bar Association has its new officers for 2013.

Linda Warren Seely, director of private attorney involvement with Memphis Area Legal Services Inc., is the 2013 president. Kirk Caraway, an attorney with Allen, Summers, Simpson, Lillie & Gresham PLLC, is the new vice president. Tommy Parker, an attorney with Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC is the new secretary/treasurer.

61. Grizz Nation Grows With Every Convincing Victory -

Joe McDuffie was just another fan in a Kobe jersey, glancing around FedExForum and pointing out patches of purple and gold.

62. Grizzlies Ramp Up Charitable Efforts as Holidays Begin -

On the court, the Grizzlies have given away next to nothing. They reeled off an eight-game winning streak. Night after night, 48 minutes at a time, they have been stingy – selfish, even.

But off the court, the Grizzlies have embraced this holiday season of giving as though it, too, were a competition. This month, they haven’t just been making baskets but giving them away hundreds at a time: Zach Randolph distributing food baskets to families from Carver and Booker T. Washington high schools; Rudy Gay passing out foodstuffs at The Pursuit of God Power Center; and Quincy Pondexter’s food basket give-away at New Direction Christian Church/Power Center Academy as part of his ongoing “Random Acts of Q-Ness.”

63. This Den of Grizzlies Players Doesn’t Bluff -

They were three words that were perfect for summing up Zach Randolph. Three words that were perfect for describing the Memphis Grizzlies seven games into this NBA season.

“I don’t bluff,” Randolph told reporters when asked about his exchange of unpleasantries with the Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins after the Grizzlies’ 107-97 victory on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Oklahoma City, and on national television no less.

64. Gen X Inks State’s First Location on Austin Peay -

A trendy Vernon, Calif.-based retailer has inked its first Tennessee location in Austin Peay Plaza.

Gen X Clothing Inc. signed a 35,000-square-foot lease at 3252 Austin Peay Highway. The space was formerly occupied by Big Lots.

65. This Den of Grizzlies Players Doesn’t Bluff -

They were three words that were perfect for summing up Zach Randolph. Three words that were perfect for describing the Memphis Grizzlies seven games into this NBA season.

“I don’t bluff,” Randolph told reporters when asked about his exchange of unpleasantries with the Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins after the Grizzlies’ 107-97 victory on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Oklahoma City, and on national television no less.

66. Obama Carries Shelby, Cohen Over Flinn and Two Tax Hikes Defeated -

President Barack Obama carried Shelby County in unofficial Nov. 6 election returns as his Republican challenger Mitt Romney took the state’s 11 electoral votes.

Voter turnout in the most popular election cycle among Shelby County voters was 61.9 percent, about the same percentage as four years ago. But the 371,256 voters is fewer than 2008 when more than 400,000 Shelby County voters cast ballots. The percentage is about the same because there are fewer registered voters in Shelby County than there were four years ago after a purge by election officials.

67. Words Few as Grizz Celebrate New Era on Court -

Just before tipoff Monday night at FedExForum, NBA Commissioner David Stern stepped to center court with microphone in hand and the spotlight squarely on him.

“The future of the NBA in Memphis never looked brighter,” Stern said.

68. Words Few as Grizz Celebrate New Era on Court -

Just before tipoff Monday night at FedExForum, NBA Commissioner David Stern stepped to center court with microphone in hand and the spotlight squarely on him.

“The future of the NBA in Memphis never looked brighter,” Stern said.

69. Opening Game Not Necessarily Preview Of Grizz Season -

So on the first day of their new NBA season, the Grizzlies picked up where they left off – losing an intense, physical game in Los Angeles on Halloween night to the Clippers. It was a game that, quite honestly, did not look or feel like a regular-season game.

70. A Season for More -

Last season, the Grizzlies made the playoffs and even earned home-court advantage for their first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Last season, the Tigers made the NCAA Tournament after winning the regular season and tournament Conference USA championships.

71. Grizz Bench, Outside Shooting Hitting Stride -

Don’t make too much of the preseason. That’s a mantra that has been well-tested. But also, don’t make too little of the preseason.

The Memphis Grizzlies finally addressed their need for more outside shooting – enter Wayne Ellington – and a viable backup point guard – welcome Jerryd Bayless. Through the team’s first seven preseason games, the newcomers have been adjusting to their new team and the team has been adjusting to them. The final preseason game, on Friday, Oct. 26, will bear no resemblance to what is to come in the regular season because Coach Lionel Hollins has said he’s giving the team’s key players the night off, or at least most of the night off.

72. Team Mantras Usher in New Basketball Seasons -

Although the date and time are unknown, there was a point some years ago when it became mandatory for every big-time college and pro team to have a mantra.

And so it is for the Grizzlies and University of Memphis Tigers. The Grizz and local media gathered at FedExForum and coach Lionel Hollins said: “Our buzz words are sacrifice, trust and consistency.”

73. FTN Financial Expands Municipal Bond Group -

FTN Financial, a division of First Tennessee Bank, has made several recent hires in its Municipal Bond Group.

74. Grizzlies Must Answer Many Difficult Offseason Questions -

In the world of sports talk radio, improving the Grizzlies would be easy. As easy as, say, “Eddie from East Memphis” calling in and suggesting the Grizzlies ship Dante Cunningham, Jeremy Pargo and Quincy Pondexter to the Oklahoma City Thunder for James Harden.

75. Grizz Get Back To Formula That Worked All Year -

Tony Allen has a way of getting to the heart of things. “We went through our All-Star Marc Gasol,” Allen said after the Grizzlies won Game 5 of their playoff series with the Los Angeles Clippers, 92-80, at FedExForum, Gasol scoring 23 points. “He was big for us.”

76. Box Scores Reveal Grizzlies’ Strengths -

Two box scores. In one, right there in black and white, is the proof that the Memphis Grizzlies hit 11-of-16 three-point shots (68.8 percent). In the other is the evidence of an 0-for-6 night from three-point range, which even a math-challenged sports writer can figure out is 00.0 percent.

77. Memphis Responds With Trademark Grit, Grind -

“We gave this game away,” Rudy Gay said. “We got too casual and comfortable,” said O.J. Mayo.

What else were these Grizzlies to say after a 24-point fourth-quarter lead disappeared on their home court in a 99-98 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series?

78. Grizzlies Shift Focus To Playoff Grit, Grind -

As the shortened but grueling NBA season was winding itself down into so many ugly wins over mere Hornets, Bobcats and Cavaliers, the Grizzlies’ Rudy Gay looked back and summed up the journey.

79. Loaded Garage Has Grizzlies Revved Up -

Just how deep are the Memphis Grizzlies? So deep that Zach Randolph’s second car is a Rolls-Royce.

No kidding. Another driver hit Randolph’s Dodge Challenger on Bill Morris Parkway the other day, so Z-Bo had to go to the automotive bench and drive the Rolls to his office (alias, FedExForum).

80. Conley Becoming Master of the Steal -

The NBA’s steals leader this season, Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul, has his opinion.

The coach of the team leading the NBA with 9.7 steals per game, Lionel Hollins of the Memphis Grizzlies, has his opinion.

81. Grizz Capable, But Must Do More With Less -

Going into their Friday, April 6, game at Miami, the Grizzlies were 30-23 with 13 games left in this lockout-shortened season. We’ve seen them win at Oklahoma City, inspiring that “Believe Memphis” sentiment from last season. And we’ve seen them lose at home to Toronto, making us wonder if they’re still capable of finishing ninth or worse in a Western Conference playoff picture with room for only eight teams.

82. Gay, Cunningham Lead Grizzlies Over Wolves -

MEMPHIS (AP) – Rudy Gay scored 21 points, Dante Cunningham added season highs of 13 points and 14 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 93-86 on Tuesday night.

83. Gay, Mayo Help Grizzlies Beat Lakers 102-96 -

LOS ANGELES (AP) – After losing the first three games on their West Coast trip, getting a win in the finale should let the Memphis Grizzlies rest easier on the flight home.

Rudy Gay scored 18 points and Mayo had 12 of his 16 in the fourth quarter, helping Memphis avoid a winless trip by beating the Los Angeles Lakers 102-96 on Sunday night.

84. County Redistricting Battle Continues -

Shelby County Commissioners will meet privately with their attorneys Monday, March 26, to see whether they have any options left in a redistricting scrap that is now firmly in the courts.

The commission meets in formal open session Monday at 1:30 p.m. at the Vasco Smith County Administration Building, 160 N. Main St.

85. Batum Leads Blazers to 97-93 Win Over Grizzlies -

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – This season is not a lost cause to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Nicolas Batum had 24 points and the new-look Blazers held off the Memphis Grizzlies 97-93 on Thursday night. Jamal Crawford added 17 points, including four clutch free throws in the final seconds as Portland snapped a two-game skid to even to 2-2 under interim head coach Kaleb Canales.

86. Believe Memphis? Not if Lakers in Town -

The evening started with such a great vibe. FedExForum public address announcer Rick Trotter just mentioned the visiting Los Angeles Lakers and sweet boos rained down onto the court.

87. Believe Memphis? Not if Lakers in Town -

The evening started with such a great vibe. FedExForum public address announcer Rick Trotter just mentioned the visiting Los Angeles Lakers and sweet boos rained down onto the court.

88. Bynum, Bryant Help Lakers Beat Grizzlies in 2 OTs -

MEMPHIS (AP) – It took two overtime periods, but the Los Angeles Lakers eventually made sure the Memphis Grizzlies stayed behind them in the Western Conference standings.

Andrew Bynum had a season-high 37 points and 16 rebounds, Kobe Bryant scored 22 of his 34 points after halftime, and the Lakers beat Memphis 116-111 in double overtime on Tuesday night.

89. Warmath Nears 50 Years At Allen & Hoshall -

James “Jim” D. Warmath is approaching 50 years of service at Allen & Hoshall engineering firm. He began as a draftsman after seeing an advertisement for the job. Today he is project manager in the electric utility department.

90. Mayo Scores 22 to Lead Grizzlies Past Nuggets -

DENVER (AP) – Sitting quietly at his locker, Andre Miller tore the stat sheet into shreds and put the bits of paper in the trash.

91. Hollins’ Intensity Evident In Grizzlies’ Play on Court -

Sooner or later, every conversation with Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins comes back to his core basketball beliefs.

“You’ve got to go out there and play your game and let whatever happens happen,” Hollins is saying one day – or any day – in the hallway outside his office at FedExForum. “And if it’s not good enough, I’ll let you know.

92. Gasol, Conley Lead Grizzlies Past Mavericks 96-85 -

MEMPHIS (AP) – The Memphis Grizzlies wanted to make sure they maintained the momentum they had before the All-Star break.

They did it by turning back the defending champion Mavericks on Wednesday night – albeit with Dallas getting little production from Dirk Nowitzki, who left with a balky back.
