Memphis finally won a game for the first time in 20 when it beat Denver earlier this week. Since, the Grizzlies have started a new run of losing with a close defeat in Brooklyn.
Of course, the biggest news as far as Memphis basketball is concerned is the return of Penny Hardaway to the city, this time as the Head Coach of the Tigers.
It was a frustrating era with Tubby Smith at the helm, who was criticized for not being engaged enough. Some believed he was just a little too old, without the energy to do the job properly.
As far as the NBA team goes, the focus is still more on the college game. The Grizzlies are tied with Phoenix with 19 wins, which is the lowest total in the league.
Those teams won’t go head-to-head again but Memphis does play eight of its final 12 games on the road, which is good news for a team trying to lose as much as possible.
The Grizzlies have had the chance to develop some young players this season, namely Dillon Brooks. Brooks is averaging a shade under 18 points per game this month to up his season average to 10.
Assuming Memphis gets a big-name prospect and Mike Conley returns and Brooks continues to develop, it might not be so far away from a decent rebuild already. As you can tell, I’m feeling optimistic today.
Charlotte carries a two-game losing streak into Brooklyn on Wednesday night before returning home to play this game against another terrible team.
The Hornets will get Dallas after, a trio of winnable games for a team that is going nowhere fast.
Charlotte won’t make the playoffs, nor is it likely to draft in the top-10 in June. It doesn’t have any cap space for free agency either. There really isn’t anything to look forward to as a Hornets fan, besides the expiration of a few of these bad contracts in the next couple years.
I wrote about the Hornets yesterday and they haven’t played since. So what does a poor man in my situation write about the next day?
It sounds like Steve Clifford’s health has been better but I’m also skeptical he could make such a fundamental change as to reverse all that had been working against him as his time as a Head Coach. I hope he is genuinely ok but I’m also concerned about what he could be doing to his body. All the best Cliff!
Other than that, there’s nothing to say about the Hornets. The slog continues.
