The Memphis Grizzlies are a relatively young franchise, joining the NBA as an expansion team for the 1995-1996 season. Things weren’t great for the Grizzlies at the beginning of the team’s run in the NBA. The then-Vancouver based franchise failed to win so much as 20 games in a season until their fourth year in the NBA. Their third season, the lockouts shortened 1999-2000 campaign, the Grizzlies finished just 8-40—a .160 winning percentage. After failing to reach 30 wins in any of the team’s first eight seasons, the Grizzlies won 50 games in the 2003-2004 season, making the playoffs for the first time. Led by Spanish big man Pau Gasol, the Grizzlies made the playoffs for three straight seasons, but they did not win a playoff series in that time. After a four year absence from postseason play, the Grizzlies have made the playoffs each of their past three seasons. In 2011 Memphis won its first playoff series, and in 2013 the Grizzlies reached the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history. Given its relative youth, the franchise has yet to retire any numbers. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Memphis Grizzlies basketball tickets.

2016 Grizzlies Season Preview
The Memphis Grizzlies won 42 games last season and were able to make it to the first round of the playoffs, but were stopped by the San Antonio Spurs, resulting in a head coach change. David Fizdale was hired as the head coach in May and has started off the 2016 season to a good start after they had an exceptional offseason and built a strong relationship with the players. Strong moves made by the Memphis Grizzlies have been re-signing Mike Conley, who is the team’s all-star as one of the best point guards in the league, and adding Chandler Parsons to the roster. Parsons will provide his excellent outside shooting while also teaming up with Grizzly veterans, Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. Memphis has some talented seasoned players but with the recent injuries they've dealt with in the past, Fizdale is also building the younger group of players. This will be an exciting season for Grizzly fans to watch their team and TicketCity will have some of the best deals on home or away Memphis Grizzlies’ tickets!

Grizzlies vs. Spurs
As inner-division foes, the Grizzlies and the Spurs continue to form one of the better rivalries in the NBA. The two teams have met over 70 times during the regular season and have played in three postseason series including two of the last three seasons. Memphis and San Antonio played in the 2013 Western Conference Finals which has only added fuel to this up-and-coming rivalry.
Grizzlies vs. Mavericks
The young talent of the Grizzles against the veteran laded Mavericks has made this match-up a must see. The two teams are often fighting for division supremacy with the highlight of the rivalry coming in the 2006 Western Conference playoffs. Memphis and Dallas met in the first round of the postseason that year. With over 65 regular season meetings between the two teams, the Grizzlies and the Mavericks will only continue to add to their rivalry.
Grizzlies vs. Rockets
The Grizzlies and the Rockets continue to build on a rivalry that is often hard fought and the intensity level is at its highest. The two teams have faced off over 70 times and will only add to that number in the upcoming seasons. As division foes, Memphis and Houston are often fighting for a division title which only heightens this rivalry.
Grizzlies in the NBA Finals, Western Conference Championships and NBA Playoffs
The Grizzlies are quickly becoming one of the top teams in the NBA. The last few seasons, Memphis has started to compete for a Western Conference title with their closest opportunity coming in the 2012-2013 season. The Grizzlies made the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history. With a young roster, it does not appear Memphis is slowing down anytime soon.
2015 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
The Memphis Grizzlies put together another 50+ win season a year ago, and continued to be one of the toughest teams in the NBA. But falling short of reaching the Western Conference finals has the Grizzlies looking hoping for more this season. The big goal for Memphis in the offseason was resigning superstar Marc Gasol to a long term deal, which the Grizzlies were able to accomplish. The Grizzlies also brought in Jeff Green, and Matt Barnes, to improve the teams front court. The 2015-16 Memphis Grizzlies should be as tough as ever, playing relentless defense and brawling teams in the paint. But will the Grizzlies have the talent on the perimeter to compete with Western Conference powers like the Golden State Warriors or San Antonio Spurs? Expect the 2015-16 Grizzlies to power teams into playing their style of basketball, and for Memphis to be a contender in the Western Conference once again.
2014 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
A year after making the NBA Western Conference finals, the Memphis Grizzles had very high expectations coming into the 2013-14 NBA season. Memphis won 50 games in the regular season, and went up 3 games to 2 on the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The Grizzlies would eventually lose the series that featured 4 straight games in overtime. Although the loss in the first round wasn’t ideal for the Memphis Grizzlies, winning 3 overtime games in a playoff series against one of the most talented teams in the NBA proved that Memphis is an elite team. The Grizzlies added Vince Carter and rookies Jordan Adams and Jarnell Stokes in the offseason. Adams is an offensive powerhouse and should help Memphis stretch opposing defenses, opening up room for Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph on the inside. Playing in the Western Conference, the Memphis Grizzlies 2014-15 schedule will be tough, but look for the Grizzlies to be pushing the top teams in the West once again come playoff time.
2013 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
Memphis won 56 games in the 2012-13 Season and even knocked out a higher seed in the playoffs, but the Spurs were on another level and swept them out of the Western Conference Finals. This year, with their core players still there and the addition of sharpshooter Mike Miller, they’ll look for an even better finish. Dave Joerger was promoted to head coach after the Grizz brass couldn’t come to terms with Lionel Hollins. Memphis’s defense should be stout enough once again to give them a legitimate shot at the NBA Finals. Memphis kicks off the season at home against Detroit on Nov. 1 before heading to Dallas the next day. Key home games include vs. San Antonio on Nov. 22, vs. the Clippers on Dec. 5 and vs. Chicago on Nov. 30.
2012 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
The Memphis Grizzlies were one of the most surprising stories of the 2011-12 NBA Basketball season, finishing with a 41-25 record, good for second in their division and the 4th seed in the Western Conference playoff seeding. After pushing Oklahoma City to a decisive seventh game in the playoffs during the 2010-11 season, the Grizzlies were poised for a strong showing in the playoffs the following year. However, the Grizzlies blew a 21-point lead in Game 1 of their series against the Los Angeles Clippers and couldn't close it out during a Game 7 at home. Like many young NBA teams, the Grizzlies will have to put their playoff growing pains behind them to take the next step in a highly-talented Western Conference. During the offseason, the Grizzlies made few changes with their roster, with the exception of the release of shooting guard O.J. Mayo. While Mayo was a highly-touted prospect when he was first picked up by Memphis, he never seemed to jive with the Grizzlies' offensive attack and will take his talents to the Dallas Mavericks this season. The team's notable free agent transactions included point guard Jerryd Bayless, who will serve as the team's reserve man at the point. Shooting guard Wayne Ellington will replace the departed Mayo, who was traded from Minnesota for Dante Cunningham. Ellington was mostly a reserve in Minnesota, so he will have extended playing time in his new home. Last but not least, the Grizzlies picked up Tony Wroten, a combo guard who plays great defense and could be a factor in the team's point guard plans in the future. The Grizzlies boast one of the best starting fives in the NBA, with Marc Gasol manning the center position, Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph as forwards and Tony Allen and Mike Conley handling the guard positions. The biggest question for the Grizzlies heading into the 2012-13 season is their depth. Their bench is a major issue, and they will need solid production from players like Josh Selby, Wayne Ellington and Jerryd Bayless to receive a much-needed boost to rest their starters. With two straight playoff appearances under their belt, the Grizzlies are trying to take the next step in their journey toward an NBA title and have a team that's every bit as talented as its Western Conference opponents. Only time will tell if the team can get solid production from their bench players who can round out one of the most talented rosters in the league.
2011 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
The Grizzlies kept the roster intact from last year’s amazing playoff run when they resigned their fantastic young center Marc Gasol. Now they enter the year in a wide-open Western Conference with Gasol, forward Zach Randolph and the returning small forward Rudy Gay, whose early exit thanks to a shoulder injury left many to wonder if the Grizzlies’ Western Conference Finals run is just the beginning of a long run of playoff wins. But while their frontcourt is set, how far they will go will depend on the team’s guard play. Mike Conley and Toney Allen bubbled up last year and provided both strength in bringing up the ball and defending. If they can maintain their stats from 2010-11, and even add a few points and steals along the way, the Grizzlies are a team to look out for in the Western Conference.
2010 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
The Memphis Grizzlies were among the worst teams in the NBA from 2006 to 2009, when they didn't win more than 24 games in a season. They turned it around last year, winning 40 games and narrowly missing out on the playoffs. Now, the Grizzlies look to take that momentum into their first postseason appearance since 2005. Memphis is anchored by a solid group of young players who should be able to lead the time in the years to come. Rudy Gay has established himself as one of the premiere scorers in the league throughout his first three seasons, and if he can be more consistent he may be able to take the Grizzlies far. In addition to Gay, O.J. Mayo has proven he can be counted on to step up, and Mike Conley has displayed a knack for running the Memphis offense. During the offseason, the Grizzlies also added some key role players, including former Boston Celtics swingman Tony Allen. They also improved their bench by drafting Xavier Henry from Kansas and former Maryland star Greivis Vasquez.
2009 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
The Memphis Grizzlies enter the 2009-2010 NBA season hoping to build upon their 24 wins from last season. The Grizzlies have one of the most explosive lineups in the league and only have two players on their roster over 30 (Allen Iverson & Marko Jaric). The young Memphis squad will count on OJ Mayo, Rudy Gay, Iverson and new draftee Hasheem Thabeet to energize the fans in Memphis and make some noise in the Western Conference.
2008 Memphis Grizzlies Season Preview
The Memphis Grizzlies are going to be a surprise team to watch this season in the NBA. Although Pau Gasol has left the roster, his brother, Marc Gasol, will be posting-up at center. With new talent flowing into the program, the Grizzlies are going to be a prime contender for the Western Conference in years to come. Watch a Grizzlies game at FedExForum and you'll get a chance to see one of the NBA's fastest-paced teams play in one of the league's newest and most cutting edge arenas.
