Grizzlies Fall to Pelicans 126–116
01/21/2020 1:48pm

It has become an annual tradition for the Grizzlies to play at home on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in a nationally broadcast game. Unfortunately for them, they finished this 6-game homestand with a loss, snapping a seven-game winning streak in the process. The effort was there from the Grizzlies, but the Pelicans clearly wanted to leave with the W and made it happen. The Grizzlies showed thatdefending wellis still sometimes a problem, and the whole team struggled with outside shooting. In fact, the Grizzlies closed the night having shot just 9 of 33 from beyond the arc. Meanwhile Pelicans guardJrueHolidayset a new career high with seven made three pointers, and New Orleans as a whole shot 44 percent from distance. The Grizzlies might have lost the outside shooting battle, but they outscored the Pelicans 70-36 in the paint. The turnover and rebounding battles were other high points, with the Grizzlies out-rebounding the Pelicans 51-43, as well as converting New Orleans 17 turnovers into 20 points. ByTheNumbers: Four of the five Grizzlies starters finished in double-digits. Jae Crowdercontinued to struggle offensively with just 2 points. Dillon Brookstied his season-high with 31 points, and his career-high with 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Jaren Jackson Jr.finished the night with 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 blocks. Ja Morantclosed out with 16 points and 9 assists. JonasValanciunashad 14 points and a game-high 11 rebounds, for his 21stdouble-double of the season. What They Said ... Grizzlies Head Coach Taylor Jenkins: Give the Pelicans tons of credit. They played amazing tonight and were firing on all cylinders. Theyve been playing great, and they proved it again tonight.JrueHoliday stepped in and set a tone for them, but Brandon Ingrams playing well as are the guys off their bench. They played great, and we didnt have it today. Just timing was off and all of that. Im proud of the guys competing, and we cut it down to five. It wasdefinitely uglyfor a good majority of the game. It was a product of them playing great and usreally notplaying that good. Im proud of the guys, but weve just got to turn a corner and get ready for the next game. On how much defensive movement affected offensive movement: Ill have to go back and watch. I felt like we were trying to switch a lot and just our communication wasnt there. It was there sporadically throughout, and they ran a whole lot of movement,Butif were switching, we should be able to stop all that movement and just keep it in front. Thats where I said that they played great but there were miscues on our part for sure. Offensively, I felt like we didnt really have the timing, regardless of what was going ononthe defensive end. Well be better. Guys have been playing hard and their spirits were great. They were trying and trying, but we just didnt have it. We couldve easily just put our head down and folded, but to take it from a 21-point lead down to five, thats impressive and indicative of the competitive team we have. They fought until the end as tough as it was. Grizzlies forwardJaren Jackson Jr.: On how this game demonstrated the teams ability to fight out of a deficit: We always do that no matter what the situation is. Were going to fight were not going to lay down for anybody. Were not going to go out sad. Im glad we brought it in the fourth, but we need to bring it earlier. On whether this loss is a wake-up call for the matchup with Boston: Yeah, we have to come out stronger. Bostons a good team, and especially at their crib, theyre going to be loud. Lot of good scorers there. So, just come out strong, throw the first punch, and keep it going. Grizzlies guard Ja Morant: On teams performance: They made shots. They had career nights. We missed shots Its just one of those nights, I guess. Nobody likes losing. Thats no good, but we are turning the page. We play in two days, travel and practice tomorrow, watch film and go into the next game as if tonight didnt happen. I was in the bed for like three quarters. We got a spark in the fourth quarter, but we fell short. On the fourth-quarter run: I think it shows our fight. We just kept playing until the buzzer sounded. They had some tough baskets late that sealed the win. I think we were down almost 30 points, and we cut it to like five points. It just shows our fight with the players we got. It just shows that we are going to compete and never give up. All Is Not Lost While it is true that the Grizzlies lost Monday night, it shouldnt negate the progress weve seen from this team in the past 10 games. One thingfansshould take comfort in is that the young squad continued to fight right up until the last possession. Who Got Next: After a six-game homestand, the Grizzlies are heading back on the road. First to Boston, where they will face off against the Celtics on Wednesday, and then off to Detroit to take on the Pistons on Friday.

Report Scores Memphis Businesses on LGBTQ Equality
01/21/2020 1:32pm

The Human Rights Campaigns HRC annual Corporate Equality Index included four of Memphis biggest companies and a law firm. Two of the corporations scored towards the top, with one scoring in the middle and another toward the bottom. The HRC claims it is the nations largest LGBTQ civil rights organization. Its report reviewed 1,059 companies and law firms this year. That included 25 Tennessee-based businesses. In Memphis, five companies were deemed large enough for review by the Human Rights Campaign. Of those here, the law firm of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC scored the highest with 90 out of 100 points possible. FedEx Corp. scored high, too, with an overall equality score of 85. First Horizon National Corp. also scored near the top with 75 total points. AutoZone Inc. scored near the middle with 40 total points. International Paper had the lowest Memphis score on the report with 30 total points. All of these points were awarded to companies based on four broad criteria: Non-discrimination policies Employment benefits Supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility including public commitment to LGBTQ equality Responsible citizenship These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do it is also the best business decision, HRC president Alphonso David said in a statement. In addition, many of these leaders are also advocating for the LGBTQ community and equality under the law in the public square. HRC began its report in 2002, done largely through a survey of Fortune magazines 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazines top 200 revenue-grossing law firms and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses. In its first year, HRC named 13 top-rated companies. This year, the group named 686 such businesses that had a perfect 100 score under the most stringent criteria to date. This year, 13 to the Fortune 500s top 20 companies earned perfect HRC scores. Here are some more insights gleaned in this years Corporate Equality Index CEI: The more than 680 companies that earned a 100 on the CEI represent 12.4 million employees nationally, 11.9 million globally, and earn a combined estimate of $12.9 trillion in revenue. Eighty-three companies participated in the CEI for the first time in 2020, with 36 debuting at a score of 100, including Etsy Inc., Peloton Interactive Inc., Stop & Shop, and Warner Music Group. Of all Fortune 500 companies, 93 percent have sexual orientation in their U.S. non-discrimination policy, and 91 percent have gender identity. The average CEI score for all Fortune 500 companies increased from 67 to 71 in the past year with actively participating Fortune 500 companies having an average score of 90, up from 88 last year. Tennessee companies averaged a score of 70 in this years CEI. This year 89 percent of companies participating in the CEI offer at least one health-care policy that is inclusive of their transgender workers. Read the full report here: pdf-1

You could win an NBA championship without a superstar in uniform, but its not the recommended approach. Over the last 40 years since the dawn of the Magic/Bird Era exactly one team has raised the Larry OBrien Trophy without a certifiable, Grade-A superstar on the roster. Definition: a player who has earned first-team All-NBA honors at least twice. Ironically, the 2003-04 Detroit Pistons beat a team in the NBA Finals the L.A. Lakers that featured foursuch players in its starting lineup. The Memphis Grizzlies will not win the NBA championship this year. But 43 games into the Ja Morant Era, an NBA title seems less of a stretch than it has since the 2013 Western Conference finals a sweep at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs. The 20-year-old Morant is well on his way to Rookie of the Year recognition, but his ceiling for stardom goes beyond the numbers hes posted to date 17.9 points and 7.0 assists per game. Theres an eye test for basketball superstardom. Whether its Morant schooling a former MVP James Harden, dunking with the nearest defender crotch-level, or draining three-pointers with a Curry-esque stroke, the 20-year-old guard has Memphis in playoff contention at least a year ahead of schedule.Morant averaged 19.3 points over the Grizzlies recent seven-game winning streak. But then on Martin Luther King Day he seemed to disappear in a loss to New Orleans. The stat sheet says he had 16 points and nine assists, a fine night for mortal NBA guards. But the Griz were down 19 by halftime. Thats the catch for now with Morant: superstars dont disappear against the Pelicans on national TV. Its outlandish to discuss Morant among first-team All-NBA candidates, right With Harden, Russell Westbrook, Damian Lillard, and another wunderkind Dallass Luka Doncic in the mix, such an honor will come hard-earned. But in 2021 Perhaps 2022 In the 25 years since the Grizzlies debuted in Vancouver, only one player has earned first-team honors, and Marc Gasol did so only once 2015. A half-season is but a blip in the NBA career of a superstar, but Ja Morant appears to be fitting himself for a cape. A suggestion for the NBAs schedule-makers: Why not find a way for the Atlanta Hawks to visit Memphis for the Martin Luther King Day game in the near future It would seem to add extra meaning to an already powerful event on the NBA calendar. The Grizzlies have hosted New Orleans the last two years and four of the last seven. Bring some variety to the game. Inviting the team that represents Dr. Kings hometown would be a poignant start. Look for Isaac Bruce to finally be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame when the modern-era class is announced on February 1st. The former Memphis Tiger is a finalist for the fourth time no more than five modern-era finalists are inducted each year. A member of the inaugural class of the Memphis Sports Hall of Fame, Bruce ranks fifth in NFL history with 15,208 receiving yards. The four men ahead of him are either already in the Hall of Fame Jerry Rice, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss or still active Larry Fitzgerald.

A Spoonful Weighs a Ton: Conrad Tao and Iris Orchestra
01/21/2020 9:01am

Composer, pianist, violinist, and electronic musician Conrad Tao, 25, is set to travel to Memphis for two performances with Iris Orchestra. Tao is a recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, the New York Dance and Performance award for Outstanding Sound Design/Music Composition, eight consecutive ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards, and the Carlos Surinach Prize from BMI. He was named a Gilmore Young Artist, and he has performed alongside the Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Boston Symphony. Backed up by Iris, the award-winning composer will perform a Memphis-inspired composition of his own, along with works by Haydn and Brahms, at Germantown Performing Arts Center and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art on Saturday, January 25th, and Sunday, January 26th, respectively. The Flyer caught up with Tao to ask him about the blues, Brahms, and the tension between performing and listening. Memphis Flyer: You were commissioned to write something that would celebrate Memphis. Tell me about that. Conrad Tao: I ended up exploring the Delta blues lineage more broadly. I took a Charley Patton tune as my starting point for this piece. It was a Charley Patton tune called A Spoonful Blues that I had been listening to for a really long time. I wanted to consider the different roles and legacies of blues music, to hopefully offer a perspective on it that was personal. MF: Tell me a little more about the piece. CT: I was interested in the blues as dance music as incredible dance music and trying to imagine that aspect of the music. A Spoonful Blues is a blues tune about cocaine addiction. That is one way we could describe it, but that would really miss a lot of the point, to simply call it that. Its this meeting point between the very social and boisterous and fun aspect of this music paired with the subject material. Thats really whats interesting. MF: Is there anything else youd like to say about the composition CT: The first line in the recording is Patton speaking Im about to go to jail about this spoonful, and thats the only time the word spoonful appears in the song. It is basically the final word of each line in the song, except that instead of Patton finishing his lines with the word spoonful vocally, its taken by his guitar. I loved that. I was so excited by that, this excess of the feeling is such that it has to go into the instrument. The instrument is the only honest expression of the idea of this word. I am interested in that kind of excess in music in general. Im interested in any moment when something feels like its been exceeded. Its just a preoccupation of mine. MF: Youre from Urbana, Illinois. Being so close to Chicago, does that give you a different take on the blues CT: It was not first-hand experience at all. I left Illinois when I was 9 years old, and Ive lived in New York really ever since. It was much more absorbed just through listening to recordings, in this case a recording from 1929. MF: Lets talk about some other older compositions. Was it your choice to pair this piece with Haydn and Brahms CT: It was my choice to include Brahms. I feel very happy to be playing the Brahms first piano concerto right now. The piece was written when he was 25, so theres just the happy coincidence of being at that point in my life myself, albeit in a different time. And I appreciate the emotional scope of it. I appreciate the formal rigor of it. I find that those two aspects of it are almost in conflict, and thats what Im really interested in. MF: Conflict and tension can be powerful aspects of performance, especially when pairing seemingly disparate genres like classical and the blues. Talk a little about tension in music and the purpose it serves. CT: Im going to take a sideways route and say that I really believe that listening is the point at which music-making happens. The instruments are external to us. Theyre the tools they facilitate. We, as performers, are communicating something through the instrument, but I really think that without listening absolutely nothing happens. Listening is the plane at which all of these points can coalesce. I like this idea of music being evidence of our desire to connect the dots to draw connections and just make sense of life. MF: Speaking of listening being a crucial part of performance, what are your thoughts on working with Iris CT: Im excited. Ive got one person in the band who I know, and I have known Iris artistic director Michael Stern for a long time. The first time I met him was 15 years ago at the Aspen Music Festival. I was playing in a violin section, and he was conducting. I have known Michael over the years, but weve never played together in this capacity, either with me as a pianist or a composer. So its really exciting to do that. Its also a little nerve-wracking, especially as a composer, to work with a new conductor, but Im hoping to dive in with openness. Conrad Tao performs with Iris Orchestra at the Germantown Performing Arts Center Saturday, January 25th, 7:30-9:30 p.m. $45-$70 and at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art Hohenberg Auditorium, Sunday, January 26th, 3-5 p.m. $40
