In a matchup of Tigers Saturday afternoon, Missouri asserted itself as dramatically superior to the visitors from Memphis. In rolling up 646 yards against an overmatched Memphis defense, Missouri scored the most points against the Tigers in 39 years. Florida State beat the Tigers 66-17 on November 17, 1979. Memphis quarterback Brady White entered the contest having thrown but one interception in seven games. He threw two in the loss, the first of them returned 42 yards for a touchdown by Christian Holmes early in the first quarter to give Mizzou a 14-0 lead. The Tigers closed the deficit to four points 21-17 early in the second quarter when White connected with Tony Pollard for a 30-yard touchdown. But Missouri scored four touchdowns over the final nine minutes of the first half to put the game out of reach. Two of the touchdowns were scored by Albert Okwuegbunam, who caught a third scoring strike from Mizzou quarterback Drew Lock in the third quarter. Okwuegbunam finished the game with 159 yards on six receptions. Lock completed 23 of 29 passes for 350 yards and four touchdowns. The countrys leading rusher, Memphis tailback Darrell Henderson, was limited to four carries for 15 yards by a hamstring injury and did not play in the second half. Patrick Taylor rushed for 103 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns. White completed only 15 of 37 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns. Damonte Coxie caught eight of the passes for 111 yards and a score. The loss is the 28th in 31 games against SEC foes for Memphis since the Tigers upset of Tennessee in 1996. Their next SEC tilt will be against Ole Miss in the 2019 season opener. Missouri will visit Memphis in 2023. The loss drops Memphis to 4-4 while Missouri improves to 4-3. The local Tigers have a bye week before traveling to East Carolina where theyll resume American Athletic Conference play on November 3rd.
Everybody poops. Just ask my 8-month-old daughter. Or the Grizzlies when they shat the bed in a 111-83 loss at the Pacers to start the season. Its a part of life. Poop is smelly and gross, but it can also be funny and heartwarming. Need proof As far as Grizzlies gamebreak entertainment goes, this one is immediately in my top ten. The premise is perfect for Conley and Gasol, both fathers with young children. The video says so much about them, even though the two men barely utter a word. You see them as humans and fathers. You see their personalities. You see how theyre able to have a conversation without words. Conley and Gasol scored 11 and 13 points, respectively, with heavy minutes in the season-opening blowout loss against the Indianapolis Pacers. The Grizzlies overall team offense looked flat and dysfunctional. Nobody could break down the Pacers defense. Grizzlies fans were quick to hit the panic button on Twitter, with some calling Gasol washed up. That foul mood changed Friday night, when Conley and Gasol revived their high-level two-man play, proving they can still be the engine of a successful team. Conley sped all over the court, breaking down defenders off the dribble, swishing two threes, and setting up his teammates with 11 assists. Gasol didnt appear to be limited by the back spasms he experienced earlier that morning, running the floor normally and whipping crisp passes to his teammates to the tune of 5 assists. Although they didnt lead the way in scoring, Conley and Gasols two-man game set the table for the rest of the team. The Grizzlies would hope to see this pattern repeated throughout the regular season, as Conley and Gasol are aging veterans with lots of mileage, and they should conserve their energy and health as much as theyre able before the Grizzlies are hopefully wrestling for playoff seeding. In his first regular season game with the Grizzlies at FedExForum, Garrett Temple quickly caught fire, and that blaze raged for the rest of the night. He lit up the Grindhouse with 30 points on 10-11 shooting, and was nearly flawless from deep, hitting 5-6. He also defended and handled the ball well. Was he 100 percent happy with his performance In the locker room after the game, Temple said I was actually real upset at myself for giving up that three to Taurean Prince the first three he got. When asked about Temple in his postgame presser, Coach J.B. Bickerstaff was quick to laud his defense, saying that there will be some nights where Temple wont hit as many shots, but hell lock down the opponents best player. How did the Grizzlies top draft pick do in his first home game of his first NBA season Lets just say hes doing a pretty good job at endearing himself to the fanbase. Triple-J poured in 24 points off the bench, shooting 8-12 and going 2-4 from deep. Hislength and quickness transformed the defense. His shooting and defensive impact come as no surprise. What does surprise me, however, is how good he looks in the post and attacking the paint. Consistently, he was able to use his size, strength, and athleticism to work his way into the paint and finished over defenders like 71 Alex Len. His touch around the rim has been impressive. Chandler Parsons got the start over Kyle Anderson, but played fewer minutes than Anderson. Parsons shot 3-6 from deep and contributed 11 points in the game. One sequence stood out to me in particular: Conley beep-beeped through the defense and jumped beneath the rim, and slung a pass to Gasol at the top of the arc. Gasol immediately swung the ball to a wide-open Parsons for a made triple. It was a rare glimpse at the power of what the three highest-paid Grizzlies can do to a defense when theyre healthy and in sync. I wrote about this in-depth for the Flyers cover story this week, but the Grizzlies basically havent seen and dont know the capabilities of a healthy version of this team. Im betting that those unknowns play out as unexpected positives. Did you know that the Grizzlies set a franchise record last night by scoring 77 points in the first half The one down note from the home-opening win was JaMychal Greens injury. He broke his jaw colliding with a players elbow while contesting a fast break dunk attempt. He hit the ground, pounded the court with his hand, hopped up, and ran straight to the locker room. He underwent a surgical stabilization procedure this morning. J.B. Bickerstaff said the injury shows how selfless Green is that he was the only one contesting a difficult play. And how tough do you have to be to leap up off the floor and jog to the locker room with a broken jaw Dillon Brooks saw limited minutes, logging just two in the first half, but got more run in the second. Even though he was conspicuously, for Grizzlies fans on the bench for most of the first half, Brooks was highly engaged, celebrating when Shelvin Mack hit a buzzer-beating floater, and jumping up and cheering harder than anyone else when Jackson slammed home a lob. Andrew Harrison didnt play at all in the home opener. And unlike Brooks, he seems disengaged, seclusive, and dissatisfied sitting on the bench. I dont know how much to read into that, though, since their personalities are so different and perhaps thats just how Harrison is in general. In any case, people forget how good Andrew Harrison was at the end of last season, and hes by far the best defender among Grizzlies point guards. I hope Memphis manages to work him into the rotation again, because he brings a lot to the table when hes playing well. The Grizzlies de-escalated an anxious fanbase on Friday. Theyll look to build some momentum when they take on one of the Wests scariest teams, the Utah Jazz, on Monday on the road. Burn of the night:
There are lots of reasons you should be excited about this years Grizzlies. The Memphis Grizzlies will catch you, the NBA and maybe even themselves off guard in 2018-19. If the team can stay healthy, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley will enjoy a supporting cast thats the best fit for their talents theyve ever had and one thats ideal for the pace-and-space era. You heard it here first: Assuming the Grizzlies avoid the kinds of extraordinary injury issues that plagued the past two seasons, they will make the playoffs. If the Grizzlies are healthy in the playoffs, this seasons iteration of the team will be well-suited to upset any of the NBAs current elite, so yes ... they could win it all. Memphis hasnt seen Marc Gasol and Mike Conley play a meaningful stretch of games since Tony Allen and Zach Randolphs departure fundamentally reshaped the landscape of the court by adding spacing and broadening lanes to the rim. Conley was playing the best offensive basketball of his career in the season before last years injury-wash. Marc Gasol started shooting threes just two seasons ago, and the Grizzlies have not been able to utilize this aspect of his game while paired with Conley at his best for any length of time. In his 2017-18 League Pass Watchability rankings, analyst Zach Lowe said, Gasol and Conley work the most subtly gorgeous two-man game in the league a bob-and-weave, give-and-go symphony only possible when two genius players compile a half-decade of shared knowledge. Lowe came to this assessment when Conley and Gasol played on a team that routinely offered the leagues worst spacing. This unparallelled two-man game will fuel many wins if its operating on a team that can space the floor, knock down open threes, and widen driving lanes to the rim. The return of the Conley/Gasol two-man game, and the fate of the win now Grizzlies, mainly rests in Conleys hands. His value cant be overstated for Memphis: Hes an elite NBA point guard who can carry the team with his scoring and facilitate the offense as a floor general. The Grizzlies have no replacement for what Conley brings to the team, and they will not contend if he cant play or if hes seriously limited. Speaking of which, theres a frightening stat that shows guards under a certain height experience a tremendous statistical drop off after a certain age, and Conley is a candidate to fit that pattern. On his fantastic Patreon page, writer Matt Hrdlicka calculated a list of guards 63 or under, age 29 or older, who were as good as Conley was in 2016-17. The list is only five people long, including Conley, and features Chris Paul, 2016-17 Kyle Lowry, and Chauncey Billups and Steve Nash. The majority of smaller guards not on this list experienced drop-offs in explosiveness and quickness, two things Conley will need in order to get to the rim, set up his teammates, and play at a level where its still reasonable for the Grizzlies to win. Conleys time in the league and the energy hes had to expend for the Grizzlies to win stands out on Hrdlickas list, so the odds and time wouldnt appear to be on Conleys side. Which is to say, it may be now or never for these Grizzlies. The hope is that a healthier team, and new ball-handling and play-making personnel, will alleviate Conleys burden and prolong his ability to play in the league. Speaking of new guys ... Kyle Anderson may end up being the biggest Grizzlies non-draft acquisition since Zach Randolph. Like Randolph, hes contractually locked in to spend his prime years with Memphis. Anderson likely wont have the same cultural impact as ZBo nor the potent, ride-that-horse type of scoring, but he will be able to defend multiple positions against the best teams in the NBA, take over some ball-handling and facilitation responsibilities, and stick around for a while. Anderson probably wont be awarded accolades like Tony Allen got as the leagues best one-on-one defender, but he will be a better and more versatile overall team defender. Its a role thats better suited for combatting the pace-and-space Curry-Thompson-Durants and CP3-Harden team-ball that now dominates the league instead. Plus, unlike Allen, who was often a liability on offense, Anderson can keep the offense running. Also, with Anderson potentially in the starting lineup, Conley wont have to hit the gas as often, and can play off the ball. I cant wait to see how Anderson looks in an expanded role. Another development this season that may take many by surprise is Chandler Parsons. Ever since the ill-considered Chancun Instagram, weve grown accustomed to Parsons maintaining a relatively clean PR presence. Hes now sharing Instagram videos of innovative workouts and gym shootarounds. But he kicked things up a notch this year by writing a letter to Memphis in the Players Tribune. Chandler basically tried to bury the hatchet with frustrated Grizzlies fans and detailed the impressive efforts hes made to rehab his body. He says he woke up early and spent most of his days rehabbing and fortifying his body with a litany of exercises. He flew to Germany so doctors could inject his knees with enormous needles, using the same treatment that revived Eric Gordons career. Parsons certainly makes the case that this year will be different, and if training camp and preseason have been any indication, he might be telling the truth. Hes running the court well, knocking down threes, and even played both nights in a pre-season back-to-back. Parsons wants to prove that he still has it, and he appears to be on track to becoming a reliable wing that can provide scoring and playmaking off the bench. If his health and ability return to near what the Grizzlies signed him to be, the Grizzlies could start either Parsons or Anderson, depending on the defense and shooting necessitated by the opponent. So, Kyle Anderson may be the biggest acquisition since Zbo ... unless its year-three Chandler Parsons pulling an Eric Gordon. If thats the case, look for Conley and Gasols efficiency and production to spike in ways not unlike the success seen by other stars around the league who are teaming up in threes and fours. The Grizzlies also appear to be on the verge of starting their best shooting guard since Courtney Lee. Garrett Temple, the likely starter, is a reliable veteran and a classic 3-and-D player. He will also help the Grizzlies reclaim their strong defensive identity. Dont sleep on Wayne Selden, though. Hes another player that could catch people off guard this season. Analysts pinned him for a potential big breakout season at the beginning of last year, but he was sidelined due to the same quad-injury that plagued Kawhi Leonard. Seldens sample size from when he was healthy with the Grizzlies is tiny, but he shot very well from three and packed a lot of athleticism and rim-attacking ability into the two spot. Its another small sample size, but Selden thrived when he was given the opportunity in a preseason game against the Pacers, scoring 16 points and dishing nine assists in 27 minutes of play. Selden could provide more of a scoring punch in the starting lineup, or serve as a backup point guard behind Conley. Having options for backup point guard is another overlooked development that will make this team more successful than most have predicted this season. The Marc & Mike Grizzlies have frequently suffered from not having a backup primary ball-handler that can facilitate the offense. By adding a veteran backup point guard like Shelvin Mack, and ball-handlers like Kyle Anderson, Conley wont have to shoulder the floor general burden alone. JaMychal Green is another player who could surprise people with his effort and production this season. Itll be a contract year for the power forward, and he should see better looks more often from deep with the makeup and health of this years roster. Greens steady ability to defend the four and space the floor gives rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. plenty of time to adapt to the NBA, which is nice, because overextended young big men tend to get injured. Speaking of Jaren Jackson Jr., I think its possible he may go down as the best player to ever wear a Grizzlies uniform. His youth, size, quickness, ability to guard the perimeter, block rate, 3-point percentage, and FT percentage made Jacksons ceiling and unicorn potential stand out in the recent draft class. The Commercial Appeals Peter Edmiston, one of my favorite number-crunching analysts covering the Grizzlies, had Luka Doncic and Jaren Jackson Jr. on a tier far above everyone else, and I think hell end up being right in his assessment. Jackson can defend the perimeter, protect the rim, space the floor, hit threes, and sink free throws. Many big men arent able to remain on the court late in games due to poor free throw shooting and difficulty guarding the perimeter. Jackson will have no such issues. But Grizzlies fans will need to be patient with Jackson, as foul problems should be expected for a 19-year-old rookie big man. If Jackson had one serious knock on his NBA potential going into the draft, it was his ability to score in the paint and the post, but that aspect of his game has steadily improved with each game hes played. Dont forget to thank the tanking gods for Triple-J. One of the most difficult reads an NBA teams front office and head coach have to make is whether their team should try to win now or rebuild for the future. How much of your future are you willing to compromise to try to win at this moment Should the rotation lean on its stars and veterans if mid-level playoff success is not a forgone conclusion How do you walk the line between winning games and developing players further down the bench so your team becomes deeper and ultimately better equipped to compete in the playoffs The call was easy to make last season. With Conley going down early, Parsons not healthy for most of the season, and Gasol being the only star besides Tyreke Evans on a team with no consistency or identity, it was clear that the season was a wash. To anti-tankers: I say Jaren Jackson Jr. is better than losing in the first round of the playoffs and getting some broke-ass project like Michael Porter Jr. Injuries have kept the Grizzlies from finding and refining their next identity. Memphis has been wandering in the wilderness, to an extent, ever since Grit n Grind reached the true end of its road in a four-game sweep by the Spurs in the 2013 Western Conference Finals. The Grizzlies finally moved on from that anachronistic blueprint in 2017, when they shipped off ZBo and TA, but the team had barely scratched the surface of its new identity last year beating the Warriors and Rockets in the first couple weeks of the season before Conley went down. The Grizzlies were lauded for having some of the best locker-room chemistry in the league before falling on hard times. And in that nadir season, what was the worst thing that happened Marc Gasol got fussy That pales in comparison to the days of punching teammates in the face over gambling debts while on the team plane, or the well-documented feuds that have plagued other teams in the league. Another bonus from last years disastrous tank-a-thon season was Dillon Brooks, who grew into a solid rotation player and gives the team yet another weapon. The Grizzlies have a mature locker room that isnt driven by ego, and additions such as Garrett Temple and Anderson can only fortify the status quo. The Grizzlies team chemistry up and down the roster should prove to be an advantage as new players gel and find their roles. On the Grizzlies Media Day, Conley said he and Gasol had signed their recent contracts with the intention of retiring as Grizzlies. When pressed about his plans in the year before his player option, Gasol was less forthcoming, saying that it was hard for him to make guarantees when he didnt know what the future would look like. It wouldve been nice if hed given a more comforting response, but I think Gasol appreciates better than most how much the unknown governs the game and players careers. The Grizzlies could get bitten by the injury bug again, and Gasol might find himself wanting to join another team to contend for a title while he still has gas left in the tank. In a worst-case scenario, this could be Conley and Gasols last season playing together in Memphis. But it could also be a beginning that brings a return of high-level playoff action to FedExForum. I think most of the litany of unknowns going into the season will reveal themselves as unexpected positives. And I believe that you should be more excited for NBA basketball in Memphis than ever before.
Lime scooters arrived with little fanfare or notice, apparently on the streets of Memphis Friday morning and city officials have now told the company to remove them. City officials said on Facebook Friday evening that the company did not get permission from anyone here to put the scooters on the street. Heres the citys statement:A new scooter company started operating here today without obtaining a permit or entering into an operating agreement. Our ordinance requires these approvals, which the company had previously been told.We have served notice to the company that it must remove its scooters. If it does not comply, we are prepared to remove them.In Memphis, we are obviously eager to move forward with shared mobility, as our work with Explore Bike Share and Bird shows. We just want it done safely and responsibly, which is why this ordinance exists. We are still in the pilot phase of our work and are not yet prepared to scale up.
When voters opt to enlarge type button on polling machines in Shelby County, gubernatorial candidate Karl Deans name gets pushed from the top of the first page of gubernatorial candidates to the second page of candidates, after the many independents also running for the seat. Shelby County Election Commission officials said the official order of the listing of candidates names comes from the state. Tennessee election law says nominees on ballots here shall be listed in the following order: majority party, minority party, and recognized minor party, if any. That Deans name is kicked to a second page, after independents, when enlarge type is pressed is simply a characteristic of Shelby County voting machines, election officials here said. They decided to format the ballot that way, they said, because they thought itd be better to have Deans name appear at the top of a page than at the bottom. Deans campaign did not immediately respond to questions about the situation, and has not, so far, said anything public about it. U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen did take the matter to social media, saying this should not have happened.
