    Grizzlies' Gasol voted top defender
    April 25, 2013 6:18am

    NEW YORK - Spanish center Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies was named on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) as the NBA Defensive Player of the Year, outpolling Miami Heat superstar LeBron James to capture the award.

    Gasol averaged 1.7 blocked shots and 1.0 steals a game in addition to 14.1 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists over 80 games this season, leading a Memphis squad that allowed an NBA-low 88.7 points a game in the regular season.

    Gasol, the first Grizzlies player to receive the honor, received 30 first-place votes and a total of 212 points from a media panel with James, who has never taken the award, second with 149 points and 18 first-place ballots.

    Oklahoma City big man Serge Ibaka, who helped Spain take silver behind the James-led American team at last year's London Olympics, was third on 122 points with Chicago's Joakim Noah fourth on 107. - AFP

    Memphis Grizzlies maul LA Clippers for first win of the series
    April 26, 2013 12:42pm

    The Memphis Grizzlies clamped down on All-Star point guard Chris Paul, and the rest of the Los Angeles Clippers could not find their rhythm without their floor general, as the home team pulled off a 94-82 win, Thursday (Friday, PHL time) at the FedExForum in Memphis.

    The Clippers had won both games in LA, 112-91, and 93-91, but the Grizzlies were expected to make things more difficult for their foes on the road, and they did just that,

    A three-pointer by Caron Butler made it 10-8 in favor of LAC halfway through the first period, but a 9-2 run courtesy of Grizzlies front-liners Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol put them ahead 17-12, and the Clippers would never lead again.

    Two charities from Matt Barnes at the start of the second quarter allowed Los Angeles to creep within a point, 23-22, but Memphis responded with back-to-back triples by reserve guards Keyon Dooling and Jerryd Bayless. An 8-0 run, by Randolph and Gasol anew, then put the home team on top, 43-31, 3:33 left in the first half.

    The third quarter saw the Grizzlies successfully play keep-away for much of the period, but the Clippers reserves made headway late, countering two Dooling free throws with triples from Jamal Crawford and Lamar Odom. Crawford would add a lay-up with 1.5 seconds left, putting LA within eight, 70-62.

    Crawford continued to keep the Clippers in the thick of things, as he and Matt Barnes made it a five-point game, 74-69, 8:39 left to play. Scores by Randolph, Quincy Pondexter and Tony Allen helped Memphis revive their double-digit buffer, 83-71, five minutes to go, but Blake Griffin interrupted their run with a pair of free throws.

    A 6-0 spread by Memphis made it 89-73, with Chauncey Billups responding with two hits from the stripe, but after two empty possessions, the Clippers waved the white flag at the 1:47 mark of the game, with their deficit still at 14.

    Zach Randolph scored a team-high 27 points, plus 11 rebounds in 37 minutes of play, while Defensive Player of the Year Marc Gasol managed 16 markers, eight boards and a block. Tony Allen and Quincy Pondexter scattered 13 piece.

    The Memphis Grizzlies defense bullied Paul into just eight points on 4-of-11 shooting. Paul attempted no free throws and missed both his triples, while also turning the ball over a team-high five times. He did however chip in eight points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals.

    Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 16 markers, but he had just two rebounds. Matt Barnes came off the bench for 12 points, while Chauncey Billups fired in 11.

    The Clippers lost despite matching the Grizzlies' field goal percentage, 38.8 percent, and making 9-of-23 from downtown. Memphis compensated with a 28-of-38 stretch at the foul line, and a dominant 17-5 difference in offensive rebounds. - AMD, GMA News

    Grizzlies even up series with rout of Clippers
    April 28, 2013 7:25am

    The Memphis Grizzlies were able to reset the table against the Los Angeles Clippers, via a fourth-quarter rout that produced a 104-83 score, and a 2-2 series tie, Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) at the FedExForum in Memphis.

    The two teams have won their respective games on their home court, reducing the series to a best-of-three, with two more games in Los Angeles.

    The Grizzlies led by as much as 12 points through the first half, but suffered a hiccup late in the second period, when back-to-back scores by Chris Paul with under two minutes to play suddenly put the Clippers on top, 45-44, 1:07 on the clock.

    Marc Gasol nailed a turnaround jumper to snatch the lead back, but after both sides missed shot attempts, the visiting side went to Paul anew off a timeout, and the All-Star point guard scored on a lay-up with a second to go, putting his team on top entering the break 47-46.

    The third period saw six lead changes and six deadlocks, the last tie coming at 62-all with 3:46 left in the quarter, as Ronnie Turiaf nailed an equalizer courtesy of a Blake Griffin dish. Five straight by the Grizzlies however broke that tie, 67-62, and they then countered Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes baskets to go into the final canto with a four-point advantage, 71-67.

    Just when they needed it most though, the Memphis defense kicked in during the final period, as they conceded just two field goals in the first seven minutes of the fourth quarter. The resulting 19-5 run, kick-started by five from Quincy Pondexter, made it 90-72 in favor of the home team, with 5:31 left in the game.

    Griffin and Barnes attempted to eat into their deficit, scoring six, but they were continually rebuffed by Memphis scores, and a banker by Mike Conley Jr. brought their advantage all the way up to 20, which led to the Clippers surrendering and putting in their bench players, still 3:13 on the clock.

    Six Grizzlies finished with double-digit scoring led by the Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, who each scored 24 points and combined for 22 rebounds and four blocks. Mike Conley Jr. added 15 points and 13 dimes, Tayshaun Prince also notched 15, while Tony Allen and Quincy Pondexter had 10 markers apiece.

    NBA Grizzlies roar into West Finals as Thunder fall late
    May 16, 2013 12:35pm

    Two years after the Oklahoma City Thunder eliminated the Memphis Grizzlies in game seven of their Western Conference semifinals, Zach Randolph and company got their revenge.

    The Grizzlies stayed strong late when the Thunder made an implausible rally to trail by just two late, holding on for an 88-84 triumph, Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, advancing to the West Finals on the back of a 4-1 series win. OKC had won game one on their home court, 93-91, but it was a Memphis sweep after that, 99-93, 87-81, 103-97, prior to this deciding game.

    The Thunder began with seven unanswered points, but Memphis battled back to force six lead changes and four deadlocks, before dunks by Serge Ibaka and Kevin Martin put the Thunder on top by five, 23-18, after one quarter.

    Twin triples from Quincy Pondexter and Jerryd Bayles began the second, putting the Grizzlies on top, 24-23, only for Kevin Durant to equalize things with a split at the line.

    Unfortunately for the Thunder, it was all Grizzlies after that. A 12-2 blitz with scores from Tayshaun Prince and Zach Randolph armed the visiting side with a 48-37 advantage, and two free throws from Mike Conley right before the end of the first half made it 12, 50-38.

    Memphis' lead reached a high of 46, 60-14, on a vicious dunk in transition by the veteran Prince, 7:10 left in the third. However, the Thunder still had a rally within them, helped out by a bizarre sequence in which Tony Allen was slapped with a technical foul for accidentally throwing a shirt onto the court while on the bench.

    Two triples from Derek Fisher and a lay-up from Thabo Sefolosha boosted a 16-4 Thunder blitz, getting them within two points with a full quarter left to play.

    The Thunder however were unable to capitalize on their run, as they went without a score in the first three and a half minutes, letting the Grizzlies boost their lead to seven, before Durant canned a jumper for a 69-64 difference, 8:32 left.

    Another two-minute dry spell from the home team made it a 12-point affair, 76-64, as Pondexter gave the Grizzlies an outside complement to Zach Randolph down low.

    Twin makes by Marc Gasol had it at 80-68, 4:13 left, but the Thunder got clutch slams from Serge Ibaka sandwiching a Fisher trey, to get their deficit down to five, 80-75, still 1:31 to play. Tony Allen however managed an and-one play in transition, getting Ibaka's sixth foul in the process, for an 83-75 tally.

    Off a timeout, the Thunder fed Ibaka's replacement, Nick Collison twice, to get within four, 49.3 seconds left, 83-79. Off a timeout, Marc Gasol stopped the Grizzlies' bleeding with a jumper, but Kevin Martin hit two on the other end to keep the difference at four, 85-81.

    With just 21.2 seconds left to go, OKC was forced to foul, and Zach Randolph managed just a split. Going down the court, Reggie Jackson canned a huge triple to make it a two-point affair, 86-84, keeping the Thunder's hopes alive.

    Oklahoma City fouled Randolph again, and this time the big man missed both. Following a timeout, the Thunder were able to inbound the ball to Durant. Despite his man draped all over him, KD was able to shake him off for an open jumper, but the attempt went wide to the left. Allen then iced the game with a pair of charities, to the disappointment of the Thunder crowd.

    Randolph led all scorers with 28 points, forming a double-double with his 14 rebounds. Mike Conley also had a double-double with 13 points and 11 assists, plus seven boards and two steals. Defensive Player of the Year Marc Gasol produced 10 points and seven rebounds, plus three steals and three blocks.

    Kevin Durant was held to 21 points on 5-of-21 shooting, missing all four of his long-range attempts. He added eight rebounds and six assists, but turned the ball over seven times.

    Serge Ibaka had 17 points, eight boards and three swats before fouling out. Reggie Jackson chimed in with 16 markers, nine boards and five dimes, versus no turnovers, while Derek Fisher and Kevin Martin combined for 19 points.

    The Thunder turned the ball over 14 times, giving up 22 points in the process, compared to 10 miscues and nine turnover points by the Griz. - AMD, GMA News

    NBA Grizzlies turn down Nets' bid to talk with Hollins - report
    June 6, 2013 12:29pm

    The Brooklyn Nets have been stymied in attempts of talking about their head coaching vacancy with Memphis Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins.

    According to ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard, citing an unnamed source, the Grizzlies denied permission to the Nets to talk with Hollins. The report also said it was unsure whether the Nets will make a second attempt to request permission from the Grizzlies.

    Hollins' contract with the Grizzlies expires June 30. If he doesn't re-sign with Memphis, he potentially could become a free agent. It is for that reason that the Grizzlies are likely not allowing Brooklyn permission, hoping that they can re-sign Hollins before his pact expires.

    The Nets are also interested in Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw and have been granted permission from the Pacers to talk to Shaw, according to Yahoo! Sports. A meeting between Shaw and Nets general manager Billy King is expected in the coming days, according to the report.

    Shaw is reportedly on the radar of at least one other team, the Los Angeles Clippers, according to the Yahoo report. Hollins name has also reportedly been mentioned as a possible candidate for the Clippers' job, as well.

    "The Pacers have been contacted by several teams since the end of the season regarding Brian," Shaw's agent, Jerome Stanley, told "The season has ended and now he plans to speak to a few teams about potential opportunities to be a head coach. He will not be commenting on anything to do with this process, or the specific teams involved." - Reuters

    After getting waived by the Heat, Mike Miller returns to the Memphis Grizzlies
    July 25, 2013 7:31am

    Mike Miller will be returning to the Memphis Grizzlies, where he previously played from 2003 to 2008, ESPN's Marc Stein reported.

    Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.Miller had previously been waived using the amnesty provision by the back-to-back reigning NBA champions Miami Heat. He was not picked up by a team while on waivers, thus making him a free agent.

    Other teams like the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Houston Rockets were also interested in signing Miller, according to previous media reports.

    Miller was the fifth overall pick in the 2000 NBA draft by the Orlando Magic. He was named rookie of the year, but was traded mid-way through his sophomore year to the Grizzlies. He spent a season each with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Washington Wizards, before signing as a free agent with the Miami Heat in the 2010-11 season.

    Last season, Miller figured in 59 regular season games with averages of 4.8 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists. However, his real value came as a three-point shooter, hitting 41.7 percent from downtown. His percentage rose to 44.4 percent in the postseason, including an 11-of-18 clip in the NBA Finals. - AMD, GMA News

    "@KBergCBS: Marc Gasol has a Grade 2 MCL sprain that does not require surgery, league source says. He is out indefinitely while the sprain heals."

    If that "indefinitely" means out for the season then the Grizz just lost their most important player and should just join the tank machine. But knowing Marc, he's a warrior and he'll try to come back as early as he can.

    Yahoo Sources: Zach Randolph, Memphis extension talks hit snag, All-Star forward considering free agency.
    Z-Bo testing free agency could make Memphis a player in the LeBron Sweepstakes.

    Z-Bo signs extension 2-year, 20M. Still exercising his 16M player option this year. Thats a good discount for MEM. Its looking likely Marc Gasol will extend with Memphis and not test free agency.

    Former Denver Nuggets head coach Jeff Bzdelik is expected to sign a contract this week to become an assistant coach with the Memphis Grizzlies, a source told Yahoo Sports.
