Game 1 Recap

With a 114-103 loss against Phoenix, the Grizzlies are showing that they are not giving up without a fight. Although this was a loss, the Grizzlies were able to keep neck and neck until the end. Phoenix kept the lead through most of the gain allowing Memphis to only get close to gripping it while Nash was sitting out.

"They made their shots in the first quarter and we knew they would with the excitement of the building. They scored entirely too many points in the first quarter and it is tough when you start in a hole like that. After that every time we made a push, they made big shots."
- Mike Miller

The next two games of the first round will be held in Memphis.

Grizzlies come down a Peg

After not having too good of a roll, the Grizzlies have slid down to the 8th spot; giving up the 7th spot to the Nuggets. Minnesota has a chance to take it from Memphis, but this isn’t very likely even though they have been doing better than Memphis overall.

Pau Gasol recently returned to the game off of a foot injury. The injury kept him out of a lot of games, but he showed that he was fully recovered for the game against the Raptors. Gasol put in 26 points, making 10-14 from the field.
