- Friday, November 3, 2017
As calculated decisions go, it seemed like a good one. Probably, it was a smart decision despite the unhappy result.

3. Last Word: Paying the Piper, Sewer Regrets and The New Incumbent's Strategy
- Tuesday, October 24, 2017
Grizzlies over the Rockets 98-90 after being down 12 on the road in Houston. There is just something in the Memphis sports ethos that happens at halftime or between quarters. The Grizz are 3-0 in this young season. And for the second consecutive game some extracurricular action on the court. Mario Chalmers of the Grizz and James Harden of the Rockets scuffled after Chalmers got floored by Harden after Harden got swarmed by him and James Ennis. Harden got the foul and he and Chalmers each got a technical for what followed.

5. Turning The Page
- Saturday, October 14, 2017

9. Fizdale’s Rant Echoes Before Game 3 vs. Spurs
- Thursday, April 20, 2017

With Conley’s history of being banged up at this stage of the season, Tony Allen was understandably concerned.

12. As Rookie NBA Head Coach, Grizzlies’ David Fizdale Earns Acclaim
- Friday, February 24, 2017
He has been forthright – with his players and when speaking with the media. First-year Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale doesn’t go in for verbal gymnastics or political double-talk.
Nor does he worry about appearances. He cancelled shoot-arounds on game days multiple times right before the All-Star break because he believed his veteran guys could use the rest. A more paranoid coach, a less assured man, might have worried about the fallout if the results were not good.

17. More Rest for Gasol, Conley Means More Minutes for Young Grizzlies
- Friday, November 4, 2016
Five games into their season, the Memphis Grizzlies have provided a small sample size that is simultaneously encouraging, confounding and still mildly concerning.
Through games of Wednesday, Nov. 2, the Grizzlies were 3-2. Nothing wrong with that record given the team has a new coach in David Fizdale, is employing a new style of offense, and has new starters and rookies in the rotation. Yet they also needed overtime – at home – to dispatch the Washington Wizards (0-3) and the New Orleans Pelicans (0-5).
