The team is led at the top of the rotation by Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and Mike Conley, while veteran forward Tony Allen serves as one of the lead dogs in the locker room. But for the team to take the next step, Joerger believes the growth will need to come from the team’s younger role players. “For us to grow from within Jerryd Bayless needs to have a nice season for us,” Joerger says. “Quincy Pondexter needs to have a nice season for us. Those guys need to make shots from the perimeter and for that to happen they’re going to have to be on the floor and be consistent.” HoopsWorld

Nick Young saw what tweeting at a beauty queen did for Quincy Pondexter, so he decided to try his luck employing the same strategy. Pondexter, a guard for the Memphis Grizzlies, was able to score a date with Miss Tennessee Chandler Lawson by hollering at her over Twitter this week. During a guest appearance on ESPN’s “SportsNation” on Thursday, Young was asked whether Pondexter’s move was “desperate” or “smooth.” “Smooth, smooth,” the Philadelphia 76ers guard insisted. “[The Memphis Grizzlies] just made it to the Western Conference finals. They’re on TV. He is the man right now. Gotta strike when you hot right there!” Young, a Los Angeles native, then said he was going to try it out, too. He looked into the camera and said, “Miss California, holla at me!” Larry Brown Sports

Memphis Grizzlies forward Quincy Pondexter’s dog has become a staple at team practices. It’s a husky named “Buckets,” and judging from the pictures Pondexter has posted on his Instagram account, it’s pretty much the most awesome dog in the world. It’s no coincidence that Pondexter’s adoption of this dog has lined up with his development into a valuable player at both ends of the floor off the bench for the Grizzlies. With any luck, there will be a remix of DJ Paul’s “We Don’t Bluff” that adds Buckets to the list of name-checked Grizzlies. For The Win

Gay, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley have elevated their play throughout a three-game winning streak the Grizzlies take into their road game tonight against the Hornets. It's Pondexter, however, who is concentrating on doing the little things that don't illuminate box scores yet help winning. "One thing that I consistently want to bring is defensive energy," Pondexter said. "That's what it's going to take for this team to win. I just want to be that glue guy out there that's helping control the games. "I'm in the rotation right now and doing my part. I just have to be consistent. At times, it may be tough because you're backing up Rudy Gay and he's a great player. But when I get my opportunity, I'm going to make the best of it." Memphis Commercial Appeal
