HoopsHype Mike Conley rumors

Last season, after they’d been picked by many to be a legitimate contender. Again they staggered at the beginning, sitting at just 12-13 on Feb. 6 until finishing 29-12 to claim the No. 4 seed, but were upset by the Clippers in the first round. “We’ve grown mentally,” Conley said. “We understand what it takes to beat good teams and we’re applying that now and not waiting until February to start rolling. We just got our minds ready for the first game, the first part of the season, as opposed to working ourselves up to that.” NBA.com

Cleveland went 4 for 20 from the field in the fourth and scored just two points during that span. "That's pretty much what you call the grit and the grind when you pull out a win like that," Allen said after collecting three steals. "We just clawed and clawed." Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each tossed in 19 points to lead the Griz, who improved their NBA-best record to 10-2. The Griz outscored the Cavs 22-9 in the fourth quarter. The better-late-than-never defensive effort proved paramount on a night when the Grizzlies' offense suffered without starting point guard Mike Conley. A bout with the flu caused Conley to miss the game. "This was just a good team effort," coach Lionel Hollins said. "We had a lot of adversity, but we showed a lot of pride."

After blowing a 27-point lead at home to the Los Angeles Clippers in Sunday night's stunning Game 1 loss, the Memphis Grizzlies had to face some restless natives. Point guard Mike Conley told the Memphis Commercial Appeal that he heard about the loss "everywhere ... Restaurants, the gas station, the dry cleaner." It must have been a tough few days; few things are worse than feeling like your support system's lost faith in you. The fans at the Grindhouse do have these Grizzlies' backs, though, as we learned during Memphis' series-leveling 105-98 win on Wednesday night. And sometimes, as center Marc Gasol learned after hitting the deck to save a loose ball on the sideline in the first quarter, they have a funny way of showing it. Yahoo! Sports

Point guard Mike Conley worked out on the court early Sunday to test the strength in his left ankle. Conley missed his second straight game with an ankle sprain, but the Grizzlies' starter said he expects to return Tuesday night against the Sacramento Kings. "I'm feeling better each day. Every morning I wake up I feel better," Conley said. "There's more mobility in my ankle. We're just trying to get the strength back more than anything. It can easily roll again and that's what the trainers are worried about more than anything. But you know me ...I'd rather be out there playing testing it out." Memphis Commercial Appeal

The point guard will meet this morning with National Basketball Players Association executive director Billy Hunter, union president Derek Fisher and 29 other player representatives to discuss the league's revised and final proposal for ending a 41/2 -month-old lockout. "There are some things as players we want to be done in order for the deal to be right," Conley said in a telephone interview. "Hopefully, this next proposal is close enough that we can live with it and be able to play." Memphis Commercial Appeal
