HoopsHype Memphis Grizzlies twitter
TA has 4 fouls early in the 3rd.
Gasol, best passing big man in possibly the history of the NBA.... just fun to watch his skills
Conley nails a 3
Yummmm BBQ Nachos... http://t.co/Tz2itVhs5c
For the Grizzlies, no Calathes yet, nor Jordan Adams or Tayshaun Prince FWIW. Second half about to begin....
People at the game should tweet pics of their food....
While we ponder the rotations, Grizz fan be like...... http://t.co/WTJpN5trzR
36 points in the paint, solid D... now to eliminate the turnovers
Grizzlies pour in 36 paint points and 13 on the break. Flamengo with 8 of 14 3pt FGs (they have 13 total FGs).
Halftime stats 62-41 Grizz Grizz are shooting 59% FG & 60% from 3
Courtney Lee buries a triple with .6 left for a 62-41 lead. Gasol leads all with 14. Tony Allen with 10. Grizz shoot 59% and force 20 TOs.
23-3 Grizz run and the starters are just punishing this team.
Gasol 14 pts 5 rebounds, 2 dunks
57-39 Grizz, Randolph gets a rebound and scores
Calathes lets the Flamengo player use his towel to wipe down the sweat...
Gasol is playing EN FUEGO just nailed a 15 footer...
We have so many options with this roster to work on rotation lineups, it is exciting to think we have a deep bench.
Just a reminder 888-HOOP and be there Grizz fans....
Quincy Pondexter putting in good minutes: 9 points in 9 minutes. Hasn't missed a shot or a FT.
Chemistry is the only real concern in these early games. The core group are playing solid, we just need to settle on the rotation players
Conley and Gasol back on the floor and order is restored. Grizz go back up 10 and Flamengo calls for time with 4:40 left in first half.
Conley feeds a cutting Grindfather and boom he scores.... and then a Gasol dunk.... Grizz up 48-36
ZBo feeds Q and a jailbreak dunk
Q headed to the line at a TO, 40-36 Grizz lead
Coach is looking a tad upset about all of the Grizz turnovers tonight...
Conley back in the game TA Leuer ZBo Q
Tony Allen with the steal, and TA is going doing TA things....
Q been reading twitter again and gets the dunk.... he is fueled by ya'll tweets
Flamengo has 11 field goals and 7 of them are threes. Grizzlies are 2 of 3 from distance and lead 38-36.
Flamengo scores another 3 and game is tied 36-36
Welcome sight: Quincy buries a triple. Unwelcome sight: Flamengo buries their 6th in 10 tries.
Q nails a 3 and boy did we need to see that!
Last year people wanted to see different lineups attempted, maybe this is why Coach Joerger said naw to all of that.
Grizzlies up to 9 turnovers. 15-point lead evaporated pretty quickly. Officials timeout at 8:58 of 2nd. Grizz up 31-30.
TA, ZBo, Beno, Q and Leuer in the game.... strange rotation and another turnover with this group
Getting a ton of fan feedback about concerns about Q. Reminder it is early... jury is still out....
Ground hog day as we turn the ball over and Badger commits the foul after the turn over. then Leuer redeems himself with the rebound & score
The defense isn't as intense with this 2nd unit. They look a little hesitant on the 13-0 run by Flamengo
11-0 run and now Q travels, this is a game of runs so far and Flamengo is running currently
Other 1st qtr numbers: Grizz force 11 TOs for 14 points, but Flamengo has 4 triples (of 6 FGM). Grizz 16 points in paint and 11 on the break
Good to see the starters producing and VC playing well from the bench, just got to get some 2nd string chemistry then watch out.
Grizz ended that qtr a little sloppy 27-20
1st QTR in the books and Grizz 12-23 for 52% FG and 1-2 50% from 3
15-27 and I want Jet's Pizza and some BBQ nachos, ya'll help a man out here
Leuer misses the shot, but glad to see Badger shooting
We've just witnessed a Marc Gasol-Kosta Koufos fast break. It was real and it was spectacular.
Vince with a very long 2, good
At the Grizzlies preseason game - had heard Marc Gasol is at peak of powers - all true. He looks incredible on both ends, runnin floor
Don't think Flamengo has seen this brand of defensive intensity. Down 10-2, Joerger called for time and told Grizz to "wake up." They have.
Cha Ching for me Vince Carter who hits the 3, man I hope I tweet that about a gazillion times this year! 21-12 Grizz
16-2 Grizz run and we looked like we have settled down. Conley is stealing the ball at will in this game
Ad-laden Flamengo jersey. http://t.co/h5o2pD6MXE
Better defensive intensity. Flamengo one for their last four and six turnovers. Grizz have taken lead on Gasol dunk, 14-12.
Conley with another steal and feeds Gasol and the game is tied at 10
TA with the dunk after missing 3 layups
Steal, slam. Tony Allen. 2 missed layups, 2 steals. All is right with the world.
Gasol score out of the time-out. Just an observation, Grizz have been solid coming out of time-outs. Last year they struggled to score.
Tony Allen missed layup count reaches two. But he steals on the other end.
Horrible start Grizz down 10-2, Coach Joerger looks hot and calls a time out.
Flamengo up 7-2 early as they have come to play, now and offensive foul on ZBo for pushing off
ZBo doing a Zbo move scoring first for the Grizz
Flamengo scores first on 2 FTs from Meyiness (u of Virginia)
Flamengo's uniforms have at least six promotional/sponsorship logos. Not attractive.
Hasseltine just threatened to backhand Hank McDowell on the radio, they are in mid season form
It's Flamengo not Flamingo, Flamingos color come from the fish they eat in nature... http://t.co/fJje67Tf22
Looks like we will be trying the Lee and Allen starting combo this game to see how that works

So J. Winston signed a large number of items verified in a sequential order that suggests a signing event. Who thinks he refused payment?

I never saw the Psychic Plowboys at the Antenna as a Memphis teen, but I remember eyeing the name on club flyers.
