MEMPHIS, May 6, 2011 – The Memphis Grizzlies are teaming with the American Red Cross to come to the aid of displaced flood victims in Memphis and the Mid-South.

MEMPHIS, May 5, 2011 – If there’s one thing local Republicans and Democrats alike can agree upon, it’s their collective belief in the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2011 NBA Playoffs. As the Western Conference Semifinals shift to Memphis for Games 3 and 4, the Tennessee State Senate showed its support for the Grizzlies by outfitting each member of the Senate with a yellow ‘Believe Memphis’ Grizzlies headband while in session today.

The battering that the Grizzlies’ bigs laid on the Thunder figures to prompt
changes from Oklahoma City. Here’s what to look for.

In the wake of the Grizzlies’ stunning-in-its-thoroughness 114-101 beating
of the Oklahoma City Thunder, it’s widely anticipated that the Thunder
will have to come up with some defensive adjustments to deal with Zach Randolph
and Marc Gasol. Single coverage by Kendrick Perkins wasn’t very effective
against Randolph, who’s seen just about every defensive coverage in the
book this season.
