Xtreme Sports Night Friday; Fan Appreciation Day in Sunday’s home finale

MEMPHIS, April 7, 2011 - As the Memphis Grizzlies make their final push for the postseason, the team will pay tribute to all the members of Grizz Nation this weekend in the final two regular season home games on Friday, April 8 with a 7 p.m. tip-off against the Sacramento Kings and Sunday, April 10 against the New Orleans Hornets with a 5 p.m. start.

MEMPHIS, April 5, 2011 – The Memphis Grizzlies announced today that Playoff tickets for Round 1, Home Games 1 and 2 will go on sale Sunday, April 10 at 10 a.m. The 2011 Grizzlies Playoffs are presented by First Tennessee and Toyota.

Dates and times of home Playoff games for the Grizzlies, who are on the verge of making the postseason for the first time since 2005-06, will be announced following the end of the 2010-11 NBA regular season.

A playoff contender defends its home court, brings the same intensity every night
and asserts its will against lesser opponents, and that’s exactly what the
Memphis Grizzlies did in a 106-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Saturday
night at FedExForum for their season-high sixth consecutive home victory.

And that’s exactly why the Grizzlies are a playoff contender.

Back in November, the New Orleans Hornets might have completely dismissed the possibility of the Memphis Grizzlies catching them in the standings. If someone were to tell the Hornets that they would be tied with the Grizzlies in the Western Conference playoff race on April 1, they likely would chalk it up as some sort of April Fools’ joke.

And who could blame them? The Hornets stormed out of the gate with an 11-1 start, while the Grizzlies sputtered to 4-8 by mid-November.
