ABOUT

The Memphis Grizzlies are an American Basketball team competing in the Western Conference Southwest Division of the NBA. The Grizzlies were founded in 1995 and play their home games at FedExForum. The Memphis Grizzlies are yet to win a Championship, Conference Title and Division Title in the NBA.


Grizzlies history


The Grizzlies were based in Vancouver, Canada till 2001 and following the 2000-01 season, the Grizzlies moved to Memphis. Grizzlies' first playoff appearance was in 2003-04, where they lost to the San Antonio Spurs in the First round. In their 23 seasons in NBA, Grizzlies have reached the playoffs ten times, but have reached the Conference Finals only once in 2012-13, where they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs. Some of the prominent players to have played for Memphis Grizzlies include Allen Iverson, Pau Gasol etc.


Grizzlies in recent years


The 2010-11 season was the Grizzlies 10th year of basketball in Memphis. They were off to a fantastic start as Memphis finished 46-36 record. It was for the first time they were in the post season in five years and they started off by beating the San Antonio Spurs 4-2. Β "Grit and Grind" was the term used to define Grizzlies basketball during the season. They eventually lost out to the OKC Thunder in the semifinals.


Memphis followed it up with another appearance in the playoffs next season as they finished the season with 41-25 record. They were ultimately eliminated by the LA Clippers in seven games.

After consecutive playoff appearances in consecutive seasons, Memphis finally ran out of steam in 2017-18 season where they finished with a 22-60 record while losing 19 straight games.


After suffering another disappointing season, the controlling owner Robert Pera announced the plan to resurrect the Grizzlies basketball operations department as Taylor Jenkins took charge of the team as head coach. Memphis drafted Ja Morant as the second overall pick in the draft and are building their team around the youngster.
