Grizzlies 93, Timberwolves 71: Grit and Grinded

The Grizzlies, in a throwback to the supposedly bygone days of Grit and Grind basketball, brutalized the Wolves 93-71 Saturday night, controlling the game from the opening tip. Although the game was neck and neck through the first half, Memphis dictated the flow of the game; the Grizzlies wore the Wolves down on both sides […]

Wolves Win Big Against Short-Handed Grizzlies; Does That Mean Anything?

Let’s cut right to the chase: the Minnesota Timberwolves shellacked the Memphis Grizzlies during Tuesday night’s home opener to the tune of 116-80. After a slow, not-exactly-pretty first five minutes, which saw the lead undulate between the two teams, the Wolves pulled ahead 14-12 off of a Kris Dunn three-pointer and the team never trailed […]

The Ballad of ‘Ojos Locos’ and the story we get to tell

The narrative of the game and the experience of the game sometimes battle as much as the players.

Grizzlies 102, Wolves 98: If youth knew, if age could

A beautiful start, an ugly middle, and a disappointing finish to start this season.

Timberwolves 114, Grizzlies 108: A win is a win is a win

The Memphis Grizzlies are in dire straits. They’ve already been granted three injury hardship exceptions and when Mario Chalmers — a feelgood story this year for Memphis — went down with a season-ending Achilles rupture, they had little choice but to waive him in order to get enough healthy bodies on the roster to play […]

Wolves fall to Grizzlies 105-101, but good things happened!

The Timberwolves fought to the final seconds tonight, but couldn’t get over the hump against a borderline top-tier Memphis Grizzlies squad. Mid-broadcast, Dave Benz mentioned the Grizzlies haven’t won an opener since they moved to Vancouver. It was a tough 105-101 loss, but it’s important to remember the quality of competition that the Wolves were facing tonight, […]

Timberwolves 102, Grizzlies 88: Havin' a Ronny

You know that friend every group seems to have with the infectious existence? It doesn’t matter what is going on with the group, if that person has an energy about them, it will emanate to everybody else and they’ll adapt to fit said energy. If that infectious friend smiles, everybody around them smiles. If that […]

Timberwolves 92, Grizzlies 109: The Long Bright Dark

[Video courtesy of CJ Fogler] That right there is a man at the end of his rope. When that video of Kevin Love’s postgame comments after the Timberwolves’ 109-92 to the Memphis Grizzlies was posted last night, reactions were both swift and morose, with many jumping to the conclusion that this means Love is done […]

Timberwolves 101, Grizzlies 93: Playing with the big boys

We went through what the Memphis Grizzlies fans are going through right now. You’re without your best player and other teams are picking on you in the process. This happens because nobody in the NBA cares if you’re injured, sick, or apathetic. Show a weakness and any good team will come through and destroy you […]

Grizzlies 92, Timberwolves 77: Hand dryers are the worst

I generally hate using hand dryers. Whenever you hit the button or you turn it on using some Jedi-type stuff, if you’re not seeing ripples in your skin then the blow dryer isn’t going to be good enough to dry your hands in a reasonable amount of time. A hand dryer like the one you […]
