But the team’s 131-117 win over the Hawks was a happy reminder of how much fun Grizzlies basketball can be. “It was a must-win, no question,” said center Marc Gasol, who is about the last guy to call the second game of the season a must-win. “We needed this, as a city, as a team, as an organization,” said point guard Mike Conley. “For our fans to give themselves something to believe in, to stand behind.”
He’s also added lots of spinach to his diet, not a vegetable he likes. Spinach helps boost tendons, so Conley is eating that and a few other items to keep himself healthy. Still, he’s not quite at the level of Gasol, who likes to grow some of his own vegetables in Memphis. “Hopefully all those things together will lead to like how I feel now,” Conley said. “I feel great and continue to feel great regardless of back to back or however many games we’re playing.”
Newcomers Kyle Anderson, Garrett Temple, Shelvin Mack and Omri Casspi all took to the dais in the FedExForum grand lobby a week away from beginning training camp with their new team. But they’ve already been working together for a while, Temple said. “When I got traded, Jevon (Carter) was the first guy to reach out to me, but Mike Conley let me know we were having a minicamp in Los Angeles,” Temple said. “I didn’t know how many guys would be there. I’ve had minicamps on two teams before, and we had maybe 10 or 11 guys, but I think there were about 16 of us there this time. We got together to eat, play pickup, just get to know each other.”
