Marc Gasol had a solid night, posting 15 points to go with 8 rebounds and 6 assists in 29 minutes. And yes, that is former Grizz Quincy Pondexter clinging onto Marc’s arm. All photos courtesy of Warren Roseborough.
It’s funny that those two words would answer two questions at the same time:
What do the Grizzlies need to do to get back on track?
How did they beat...

New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis is one of a handful of NBA players who are having MVP-caliber seasons. By playing the tremendous low-post defense we have grown accustomed to seeing from him and taking a significant leap offensively, Davis has the Pelicans just 2.5 games back of a playoff spot in the Western...Read More
A guy named Michael Jordan came along, wore cool shoes, drank Gatorade and in the process, took the NBA to sights never before seen. In the middle of Jordan’s decorated career, the only real question anyone wanted to ask was: who is the next MJ?
Many players were touted as the next thing to His Airness. Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, Kobe Bryant and Vince Carter, to name a few....
New Orleans wasn’t supposed to make the playoffs. The West didn’t appear to have any playoff vacancies, and if an outsider did crack the conference’s Top 8 slots, the best odds belonged to the Suns, not the Pelicans, considering that Phoenix missed the postseason with 48 wins a season ago. Yes, the Pelicans have Anthony Davis, coming off the breakout summer with Team USA we...

New Orleans is 31-27 and flying high on a four-game winning streak.
For the last two seasons, the case can certainly be made that the Pelicans have been the unluckiest team in the league with regards to staying healthy.
