MEMPHIS, Tenn.– The Memphis Grizzlies are back to their ‘Grit & Grind’ mentality, as they prepare to host the mighty Pelicans of New Orleans (NOLA).
With both teams having gone through some major upgrades in the offseason, only time will tell if it was for the better. Grind City poster boys Mike Conley and Marc Gasol, look to lead their squad after the departure of fan fav veterans Zach ‘Z-Bo’ Randolph (Sacramento), and Tony “The Grindfather” Allen (NOLA) during free agency. With the addition of some young cubs (Rookies Dillon Brooks, Ivan Rabb, Kobi Simmons) and seasoned papa bears (Ben McLemore, Tyreke Evans, & Mario Chalmers), Memphis is still a strong contender in the Western Conference.
The same can be said for the NOLA Pelicans, who have a solid frontcourt of Mr. Fear The Brow, Ant Davis, and ‘Boogie’ (DeMarcus) Cousins in the paint. These two big-men will be padding their stats with help from another solid backcourt duo of Rajon Rondo and Jrue Holiday.
