<![CDATA[Report Card: Grizzlies stop the Bucks 116-113]]>
The Memphis Grizzlies are the real deal, and teams around the league need to take note.

The Grizzlies went up to Milwaukee and knocked off the Bucks 116-113. It is so enjoyable to see the greatness of Marc Gasol and Mike Conley as they play well for this team. Memphis has put together multiple team wins from start to finish that really show they are for real.

For the first time in 20 months, the Grizzlies get the win on an Eastern Conference home court. That is a good streak to put to an end, and it is even better to end it against one of the top Eastern Conference teams as well. The Sixers win and now this one will give the Grizzlies confidence and momentum that will be huge going forward.]]> 5360922 Thu, 15 Nov 2018 8:00:02 EDT Grizzly Bear Blues

Offensively, the Memphis Grizzlies will never be confused with high-powered Western Conference foes like the Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets.

Even at their gritty and grindy best, the Grizzlies have finished in the top half of the NBA in offensive rating only three times this decade: 2010-11 (13th), 2013-14 (14th) and 2014-15 (13th).

Point guard Mike Conley and center Marc Gasol were big reasons for those outputs, as the two have been pivotal in creating offense for both themselves and their teammates during that time frame. Through 12 games this season, it has been more of the same for the franchise cornerstones, but their overall offensive efficiency is lower than it has been during their Grizzlies tenure. The result is a 22nd place team ranking in offensive efficiency for Memphis]]> 5360027 Wed, 14 Nov 2018 8:42:01 EDT Grizzly Bear Blues
