1. Grizzlies’ Struggles Continue in Loss to Lowly Nets -

By the end, FedExForum looked like the early days at The Pyramid. The Grizzlies were losing by double-digits as the clock was winding down and fans were filing out into the night.

The Grindhouse, once a fortress of defense and Memphis pride, had a sadness about it, a tiredness and a quietness about it, except for the occasional and echoing “boo-o-o-o” that was well-deserved, if also pointless.

2. TVA’s Nearly $1B Natural Gas Plant 70 Percent Complete -

The view is breathtaking. The Memphis skyline glints and gleams in the midday sun. The Pyramid casts its own unique light across the distance, and the Hernando DeSoto Bridge superstructure is an elegant silver set of curves to the west, filtered through bare trees. It’s a view you need a hard hat to see from the top of the massive heat recovery steam generator at the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Allen Steam Plant, under construction in southwest Memphis.

3. Evans Brings Precision, Experience To Chairmanship of TVA Board -

Lynn Evans is precise, a trait that comes with being a certified public accountant and the owner of her own accounting and consulting firm. It also works well with her path to becoming the new chairwoman of the Tennessee Valley Authority board.

4. Grizz Hit All-Star Break With Loss, But Their Goals Are Within Reach -

After he had answered the obligatory questions about the Grizzlies’ ugly 95-91 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans in the last game before the All-Star break, coach David Fizdale spoke to the big picture: “We’re in good position.”

5. TVA Drilling Controversy May Change Well Actions -

The controversy over Tennessee Valley Authority drilling water wells into the Memphis aquifer for the new TVA power plant in southwest Memphis is becoming a push for more public notice of such plans and better mapping of the water supply under the city.

6. Grizzlies Hold Spurs to Season-Low for Points in 89-74 Victory -

No Grizzlies player scored more than 15 points or made more than one 3-pointer. The team’s big free agent signing in the off-season, forward Chandler Parsons, suffered through another cold shooting night going 1 of 10 from the floor.

7. Body Count -

A day at a time, Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland has been writing the names of those who have been murdered in a notebook he keeps with him since he became mayor in January 2016.

When five people, two of them 15 years old, died violently the weekend that much of the world’s attention was on protest marches and the new administration in Washington, Strickland was getting updates on the latest surge in violence.

8. Environmental Groups Filing Lawsuit Over TVA's Plan to Drill Memphis Aquifer -

The Sierra Club and a group called Protect Our Aquifer were expected to file a lawsuit Wednesday, Feb. 1, in Chancery Court, challenging new water wells the Tennessee Valley Authority is planning to dig at its new Allen Combined Cycle Plant in southwest Memphis.

9. TVA Reports Profitable First Quarter 2017 -

The Tennessee Valley Authority continued strong performance in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 after reporting the highest net income in its history for fiscal year 2016.

10. Last Word: Connecting Downtown, Tranquil Treasure and Gas Tax Complexities -

Temple over the Tigers Wednesday in Philadelphia 77-66. East Carolina at the Forum is coming up Saturday. Grizz and Raptors at the Forum Wednesday evening and the Grizz win 101 – 99. The Grizz are on the road starting Friday against the Trail Blazers.

11. View From the Hill: Taxing Online Sales Not Such an Easy Fix -

Cumberland Transit owner Allen Doty isn’t sure if a rule requiring major out-of-state retailers to collect Tennessee sales taxes will create more equity for his shop.

But Doty, who has been selling everything from bicycles to kayaks and camping gear for 34 years in Nashville, is definitely tired of people shopping in his store for hours, snapping a picture of shoes they like, then going home and buying them online “just to avoid sales tax.”

12. Nonprofits Find a Winner in Grit. Grind. Give. -

The national #GivingTuesday movement had started in 2012 in New York on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It was, and remains, a global giving effort riding the power of social media as a way to respond to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

13. Final Goodbye: Roll Call of Some of Those Who Died in 2016 -

Death claimed transcendent political figures in 2016, including Cuba's revolutionary leader and Thailand's longtime king, but also took away royals of a different sort: kings of pop music, from Prince and David Bowie to George Michael.

14. Growing Pains -

First came the ho-hum start that left open the possibility the Grizzlies’ harshest critics might be right: This season could be the fast-forwarded beginning of an end, a sad narrative that could leave the Grizzlies on the outside of the postseason after a thrilling six-year run.

15. The Week Ahead: October 24-30 -

The real fall may finally have arrived in Memphis, but we’ll see. What we do know will arrive this week is the Memphis Grizzlies’ first real game of the 2016-2017 season at FedExForum. And the first public look inside a very historic Memphis church near FedExForum the day before that season opener. The Wolf River also is in the news this week and toward week’s end, Halloween will be lurking around the corner.     

16. Looks Like 10-2, SEC Title Game, Orange Bowl for UT -

Editor’s note: Nashville sports correspondent Dave Link has been accurate in predicting season outcomes for the Tennessee Vols in recent years. His 2016 season predictions, released just before press time, culminates with an SEC Championship appearance. Here’s his take on the season…

17. CLERB Powers Amended Again, Charter Amendment Possible -

Memphis City Council members took another try Tuesday, Aug. 9, at giving the Civilian Law Enforcement Review Board subpoena power in investigating allegations of police misconduct, not quite a year after its first try.

18. Council Takes Final Vote On Residency Referendum -

Memphis City Council members take a final vote Tuesday, Aug. 9, on an addition to the Nov. 8 ballot that would ask city voters to approve new residency requirements for future city employees.

The referendum ordinance is a proposal to require all city employees hired after a certain date to live in the city of Memphis. The current requirement is that city employees must live within Shelby County.

19. Grizzlies Introduce Free Agent Signee Chandler Parsons -

Fans who had gathered in the lobby of FedExForum began cheering as soon free agent signee Chandler Parsons came into view – wearing a plum suit – and walking with Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace toward a table where they would sit and conduct a historic press conference.

20. Grizzlies Get Wade Baldwin 17th, Deyonta Davis at 31 in NBA Draft -

The Memphis Grizzlies selected Vanderbilt combo guard Wade Baldwin with the 17th overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft and then nabbed three second-round players after making a trade with the Boston Celtics.

21. Grizzlies Get Wade Baldwin 17th, Deyonta Davis at 31 in NBA Draft -

The Memphis Grizzlies selected Vanderbilt combo guard Wade Baldwin with the 17th overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft and then nabbed three second-round players after making a trade with the Boston Celtics.

22. Grizzlies Get Wade Baldwin 17th, Deyonta Davis at 31 in NBA Draft -

The Memphis Grizzlies selected Vanderbilt combo guard Wade Baldwin with the 17th overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft and then nabbed three second-round players after making a trade with the Boston Celtics.

23. Believe It or Not -

Long before Jim Strickland was mayor of Memphis, he was a thirtysomething lawyer and sports fan. Not always in that order. He loved the University of Memphis – his alma mater – and rooted like crazy for the basketball team. And on those less frequent occasions when there was a reason to believe, for the football team, too.

24. Editorial: Telling the Whole Truth Against All Odds -

Have you ever heard of Samuel Allen McElwee, Isham Franklin Norris or Monroe W. Gooden?

All were Tennessee legislators who represented Memphis and the surrounding area during the era of Reconstruction following the Civil War. Reconstruction was the result of the three-day orgy of violence led by the Memphis Police Department 150 years ago this month.

25. Grizzlies Hope to Grind Out a Playoff Win at Home -

April 22, 2004. The Memphis Grizzlies’ first home playoff game in franchise history at The Pointed House now known as Bass Pro Shops.

Hubie Brown was the Grizzlies coach then, and the NBA’s Coach of the Year for overseeing a 50-win season. The Gasol on the team was Pau and Bonzi Wells was the more controlled forerunner to Lance “Born Ready” Stephenson.

26. Grizzlies End 6-Game Skid With Home Win Over Bulls -

If it had been a football game, you could have called it the Desperation Bowl. The Chicago Bulls and Memphis Grizzlies each badly needed a victory.

Behind 27 points and 10 rebounds from power forward Zach Randolph, the Grizzlies got one and snapped their six-game losing streak by defeating the Bulls 108-92 Tuesday, April 5, at FedExForum.

27. Still Tough to Play, Grizzlies Blending Old And New Ways to Keep Winning -

Coach George Karl’s Denver teams used to battle against this incarnation of the Memphis Grizzlies. Now, his Sacramento Kings come into FedExForum and engage in elbow-to-elbow and push-and-pull hardwood combat with the edited version of this era’s Grizzlies.

28. New Regime Begins Rebuild at NFL Combine -

The sports nation’s eyes are rarely fixed on the Tennessee Titans. The upcoming season will be the franchise’s 20th year in the state of Tennessee, and except for their Super Bowl run in 1999 and a couple of playoff years where they were the No. 1 seed, the Titans haven’t really commanded the full attention of the football world.

29. Life Without Marc? Yes, and Grizz Still Have Something to Play For -

In their first game after learning their franchise player had fractured his right foot and would be lost to the team indefinitely – and yes, perhaps for the rest of the season – the Grizzlies reacted just the way that was needed: They went out to Brooklyn and demolished the hapless Nets before starting their All-Star break.

30. Memphis Grizzlies Off The Grid As Record Rises -

When the Memphis Grizzlies rolled out to that hot start last season and carried a 39-14 record into the All-Star break, they had created legitimate national buzz – perhaps for the first time ever during the course of an NBA regular season.

31. Grizzlies Notebook: Zach Randolph Still Mr. Double-Double, Even Off the Bench -

Ever since Memphis coach Dave Joerger decided to have power forward Zach Randolph play off the bench, he has been Mr. Team First and Mr. Positive Attitude.

He also is still capable of being Mr. Double-Double.

32. SEC Still Overrated? Wrap Your Head Around SEC West, Says Bielema -

That an Arkansas team played its best football at season’s end, coming into Memphis and defeating Kansas State 45-23 in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, hardly qualifies as a surprise.

But the Southeastern Conference’s eight bowl wins – the most by a conference in a season – did seem to shake up some folks.

33. Memorable Events of 2015 will Spill Into 2016 -

When you really get down to it, history is a collection of moments, moments that, when they fall one after the other over the long arc of time, eventually form the tapestry representing who we are.

34. Going Small, Grizzlies Score Big Against Wizards -

Before the game, Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger confirmed the lineup change that moved power forward Zach Randolph and swingman Tony Allen to the bench and installed forward Matt Barnes and guard Courtney Lee as starters – and left forward Jeff Green as a starter – wasn’t just a one-time whim while in Miami.

35. TVA Begins Work On Memphis Natural Gas Plant -

2480 HENNINGTON AVE

36. Spurs Snap Grizzlies' Four-Game Winning Streak, 92-82 -

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs played poorly, were not sharp and heard all about it during a fiery timeout.

Imagine if they had lost.

Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points, Tony Parker had 18 and the Spurs held on to snap the Memphis Grizzlies' four-game winning streak with a 92-82 victory Saturday night.

37. TVA Employees Sharing in Record Earnings -

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Valley Authority is rewarding employees for helping boost the utility's income above $1 billion last year.

TVA directors voted Friday to allow the agency's 10,900 employees to share in some of those record earnings, the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/1HewbVr) reported. The directors approved payments of $113 million, or an average year-end bonus of $10,367 per employee.

38. TVA Kicks Off Natural Gas Plant with $6.5M Permit -

The Tennessee Valley Authority has begun work on its natural gas plant near the site of the former coal-burning Allen Fossil Plant.

On Nov. 17, Kiewit Construction applied for a $5 million building permit for an office building and a $1.4 million permit for a trailer build-out.

39. TVA Kicks Off Natural Gas Plant with $6.5M Permit -

The Tennessee Valley Authority has begun work on its natural gas plant near the site of the former coal-burning Allen Fossil Plant.

On Nov. 17, Kiewit Construction applied for a $5 million building permit for an office building and a $1.4 million permit for a trailer build-out.

40. College Football Notebook: Bielema High on the Hog -

After a 1-3 start, Arkansas has won five of its last six games and last weekend handled then-No. 9 Louisiana State with relative ease in Baton Rouge, winning 31-14.

The victory moved the Razorbacks to 6-4 overall, 4-2 in the Southeastern Conference, and coach Bret Bielema had some things to say about that. Of course he did.

41. Together Again -

To look ahead to next season, we must first go back to last season. To that heady time when the Grizzlies held a 2-1 series lead over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA’s Western Conference semifinals.

42. Grizz May Be Able to Speed Up A Few Minutes at a Time -

It meant nothing – the final score, the individual stats … none of it mattered. And yet when the Grizzlies ran out for the first preseason game of the 2015-16 season, before a half-empty FedExForum on Tuesday Oct. 6, it felt good and it felt right.

43. Heat Really On for Jones Against Arkansas -

It’s been a long week for Tennessee football coach Butch Jones.

Kickoff can’t come soon enough for Jones and his staff Saturday night when the Vols (2-2, 0-1 SEC) play host to Arkansas (1-3, 0-1) at Neyland Stadium.

44. Grizzlies Bites: October 2-8 -

FedExForum Increases Security for Grizzlies Games: Walk-through magnetometers (metal detectors) have been installed at all entrances to FedExForum, and will be standard practice for entering fans starting with the Memphis Grizzlies’ first preseason game Tuesday, Oct. 6, vs. the Houston Rockets.

45. After Trying to Just Fit In, Jeff Green Looks to Make Bigger Impact on Grizz -

Center Marc Gasol looks at Jeff Green and sees what does not exist anywhere else on the Grizzlies’ veteran, often plodding, roster.

46. 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.

47. 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.

48. Repair, Fence Ordered For Downtown Building -

The owner of a long-vacant Downtown building that suffered a partial roof collapse last week following heavy rain must erect “appropriate” fencing around the structure, according to Shelby County Environmental Court Judge Larry Potter.

49. Memphis Sole -

The football field measurements are perhaps inevitable in describing just how big Nike’s Northridge distribution center in Frayser is after its $301 million expansion.

The 2.8 million-square-foot facility – the equivalent of 49 football fields – is Nike Inc.’s largest distribution center in the world.

50. Nike Formally Opens $301 Million Frayser Expansion -

Executives of Nike Inc. are in Memphis Friday, June 26, to formally open the $301 million expansion of the sports shoe and apparel giant’s Northridge distribution center at 3100 New Frayser Boulevard.

51. The Soul of Memphis -

What if there was one place that could give a meaningful identity to a new generation of Memphians, preserve the sacred story of Memphis’ social and musical history and communicate the city’s soul to the rest of the world?

52. 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.

53. 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:

54. 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.”

55. 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.

56. 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.

57. 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.

58. Grizz Suffer ‘Beat Down’ as LBJ and Cavs Continue to Step Up -

The Cleveland Cavaliers were on a three-game winning streak. The Memphis Grizzlies were on a three-game winning streak. They were each the No. 2 seed in their respective conferences.

It set up to be a very competitive, perhaps even memorable, game. But the Cavaliers’ 111-89 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, March 25, at FedExForum was, as Tony Allen, put it, “an old-fashioned beat down.”

59. 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….

60. 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.

61. 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:

62. GE to Provide Natural Gas Turbines for Allen Plant -

General Electric Co. says it has received an order from the Tennessee Valley Authority for two high-efficiency gas turbine generators to replace three coal-fired units that are being retired at the Allen Fossil Plant in Memphis.

63. GE to Provide Natural Gas Turbines for Allen Plant -

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – General Electric Co. says it has received an order from the Tennessee Valley Authority for two high-efficiency gas turbine generators to replace three coal-fired units that are being retired at the Allen Fossil Plant in Memphis.

64. 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.

65. 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.

66. Drug Deal Murder Brings Interstate Commerce Violation -

Robbing a drug dealer can be a federal crime.

James Earl McCracken and the street gang he reputedly heads robbed and killed a man McCracken allegedly believed to be a drug dealer in July 2011, according to a Memphis federal grand jury.

67. 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.”

68. 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.”

69. 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.

70. 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.

71. 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.

72. 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.

73. 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.

74. 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.

75. Power Play -

When the Tennessee Valley Authority board voted in August to build a new power plant in Southwest Memphis, it was a decision based on factors larger than the power needs in Memphis.

But it was also a decision that is just as important for Memphis as the decision to build the existing Allen Fossil Plant there 55 years ago.

76. Regenerate Corporate Cultures -

What’s good for the bee is good for the hive. Marcus Aurelius noted that "If a thing is not good for the hive, it is not good for the bee.” This statement has profound implications for corporate cultures. In a workplace setting, anything that keeps a culture from dynamically regenerating itself is harmful to its people.

77. Ice Bucket Challenge Spotlights Viral Video Power -

Perhaps one of the greatest viral phenomena – the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – has dominated social media channels for the past month, raising an impressive $70 million to date, compared to $2.5 million typically raised by the nonprofit during the same time period.

78. TVA to Replace Allen Plant With Natural Gas -

The 55-year-old Allen Fossil Plant in southwest Memphis will be replaced with a new $975 million natural gas plant to be built in the shadow of the original facility, the Tennessee Valley Authority board decided Thursday, Aug. 21, in Knoxville.

79. Sierra Club Begins Allen Plant Ad Campaign -

The Sierra Club has begun an ad campaign in Memphis and Knoxville to push for the use of wind and solar power in the coming conversion of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Allen Fossil Plant in southwest Memphis.

80. Sierra Club Begins Allen Plant Ad Campaign -

The Sierra Club has begun an ad campaign in Memphis and Knoxville to push for the use of wind and solar power in the coming conversion of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Allen Fossil Plant in southwest Memphis.

81. 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.

82. Allen Gas Plant Would Be Historic Shift -

A new natural gas power plant to be built in the shadow of the Allen Steam Plant in Southwest Memphis got its first reviews Tuesday, July 8, at a Tennessee Valley Authority forum Downtown.

The session at Central Station featured lots of questions from citizens about the historic shift proposed, as well as some support for the conversion and some criticism.

83. 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.

84. 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.

85. 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.

86. 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.

87. 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.

88. 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.

89. 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.

90. 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.

91. 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.

92. 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.

93. 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.

94. 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.

95. 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.

96. Grizzlies Trying to Create Season to Remember -
