The only longer losing streaks in franchise history were skids of 23 and 19 games in the expansion season of 1995-96 in Vancouver. It’s the longest losing streak in Memphis pro basketball history. “It’s in our mind every game,” said Dillon Brooks, who led Memphis with 17 points. “We’re trying to figure out what’s working and try to keep progressing through that, but not a lot is clicking right now. I guess we’ve just got to clear our heads and go into the next game energetic and act like we love the game.”

One popular touchstone for the 19-to-22-year-old cohort? The legendary dunker who inspired Mitchell’s final-round throwdown on Saturday night. “I mean, I was always into the game — I didn’t have TV or cable or Internet, so I didn’t really watch anybody for a while,” said Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, who grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. “But watching Vince Carter in the Dunk Contest, and watching him play, he was my favorite player.” “You know, I watched Vince Carter,” added Murray’s countryman and Memphis Grizzlies guard Dillon Brooks, from Mississauga, Ontario. “With the lobs, he just had Toronto … everybody was wearing a purple Toronto jersey. He just made me want to play basketball, and want to dunk, and want to be a part of all that.”

The rookie [Dillon Brooks] grabbed my arm. I said, ‘Get off me.’ He said some other words. I said, ‘You got the wrong one, rookie. You got the wrong one, youngin’.’ He said some other stuff like, ‘Who are you?’ I said, ‘You know who I am?’ Then I got the tech.’’ “You can’t make the game personal,’’ Courtney Lee added. “I wasn’t even talking to [the ref]. I was talking to the rookie. I’ve been in this league 10 years. I’ve heard 10 times worse things said. You’re ready to throw the ball up but you’re eyeing in on that situation?’’
