Here is a look at the Top 5 Games the Grizzlies have coming up in 2015

Grizzlies @ Mavericks, American Airlines Center, January 27,
Starting price $17, Average price $45
The Grizzlies won the first duel, but the Mavericks still managed to score 100+ points. The challenge here for Memphis is to prove they can hold the best offensive team in the league bellow 100 points, and do so on the opposing floor. Hardly an easy task, but the Grizzlies have the skill, talent and focus to do it. While all eyes might be on the matchups in the post, Rondo versus Conley is an interesting matchup at the point guard position that might change the course of the results.

Hawks @ Grizzlies, FedEx Forums, February 8,
Starting price $10, Average price $26
The Atlanta Hawks are arguably the best team in the league, certainly the hottest, winners of 20 in the past 22 games. They are the Spurs of the East, and are playing one of the best basketball at the moment. They’ve beat the Grizzlies during their recent streak, in Atlanta. Winning versus the Hawks is purely for confidence.View Grizzlies vs Hawks Tickets for the FedEx Forum.

Grizzlies @ Rockets, Toyota Center, March 4,
Starting Price $24, Average price $54
The Rockets are one of the few teams in the NBA that have a positive record versus the Grizzlies this year. Even the one time the Grizzlies won, Houston was playing with an injured Dwight Howard. The teams are very close in the rankings, and the tie breaker might decide the ranking between the two, and home court advantage. The Grizzlies are guaranteed to play versus one of their division rivals in the playoffs. View Rockets vs Grizzlies Tickets for the Toyota Center.

Warriors @ Grizzlies, FedEx Forum, March 27,
Starting price $15, Average price $52
A month ago, the Grizzlies and the Warriors were the top 2 teams in the West, and in the league. While the Warriors still sit at the top of the Western Conference, Memphis has slipped a bit, and lost more games. Winning versus Golden State is not easy, and Memphis has managed to win one. But that was without Andrew Bogut in the lineup. Also worth noting, Golden State is the best defensive team in the league. For a team that struggles to score like Memphis, this is a challenge.

Grizzlies @ Spurs, AT&T Center, March 29,
Starting price $15, Average price $45
At the moment, Grizzlies hold the tiebreaker, having won two of the three games this season. If they manage to win the last one in San Antonio, they are guaranteed home court advantage versus the Champions. The two teams share a great playoff history. The Grizzlies knocked the Spurs out of the playoffs few seasons ago, and did it as the 8th seed. Two years ago, the Spurs schooled the Grizzlies.

Memphis Grizzlies

NBAs biggest secret-Memphis and the Grizzlies

In big media companies, you are not allowed to write or speak about the Memphis Grizzlies.

“Nobody cares,” is the common refrain.

Well, it’s time to start caring, and we are going to bend over backwards to explain why that should be so.

First, the basketball part: The Grizzlies play in a division that is home to the NBA’s two hottest teams, the other being the Houston Rockets, who also have won seven straight games. Memphis pulled off an amazing comeback last night to keep their streak alive, rallying from 16 points down in the fourth quarter to defeat the Golden State Warriors 91-90.

Second, the non-basketball part.

If you attend a game in Memphis, you can exit the arena and walk two short blocks to Beale Street, where you can listen to outstanding live music seven nights a week while downing a 32-ounce coldie that’ll set you back a mere $2.

If you are lucky, the Grizzlies dance team will stop by your juke joint and join you for a beverage. And as my friend and colleague Frank Isola of the New York Daily News so astutely observed and tweeted last season, there is no better assemblage of fine young women representing an NBA team than the members of that particular dance team.

Third, if you have an off-night in Memphis, you can get in your rental car, drive south into Mississippi toward the Tunica Casino and Resort and motor through miles and miles of soybean fields before your senses awake. You can smell it a mile away: Fried chicken.
And if you stop at that chicken stand out in the middle of nowhere, you will eat what Colonel Sanders is secretly chowing down on in heaven. Man, it’s manna, I tell you.
But those last two items are not the reason you are here for your daily update.

So let’s get back to the basketball, and take a closer look at what the Grizzlies pulled off last night in Oakland. After scoring a mere 35 points in the first half while playing their third game in four nights, the Grizzlies erupted for 39 in the fourth quarter to defeat the Warriors 91-90, coming back from a 20-point deficit in the final 15 1/2 minutes.

“We were dead in the water in the first half. We had no answers,” coach Lionel Hollins said. “We don’t quit; we fight. We did that, and we were able to come back and get this win, which is a sweet win.”

It would be a disservice to the Rockets to continue this conversation without including them next. They play in a sprawling metropolis with no zoning rules, which is why you can drive to the far corners of the city and stumble upon one or two 50-story skyscrapers that would seem to have no business being there. For miles around, the next tallest buildings are two-story strip malls.

Back when Jeff Van Gundy was coaching the Rockets, I was working down in Houston and was stopped at a red light when who should pull up in the next lane? None other that JVG himself. “Worst traffic city in America,” Van Gundy observed. “New York has nothing on this place.”

Anyway, it was McHale appreciation night (NOT!) in Minneapolis last night, and the crowd booed McHale lustily during introductions before McHale got the last laugh with a 107-92 victory over the Timberwolves, who got 39 points from Kevin Love (5-for-5 on 3-pointers) and 12 more assists from Ricky Rubio.
The Rockets’ seven-game winning streak has only moved them into fourth-place in the Southwest Division, where they still trail the Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio.

The Spurs were only 1-6 entering their game against the lowly Hornets, but Tim Duncan turned back the clock and scored a season-high 28 points — the final two coming from just inside the foul line off an inbounds play for the game-winning points with 1.4 seconds left. “It was a mix of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson, a kind of sky-hook, and we’ll take it,” Tony Parker said of Duncan’s 13-foot game-winner over New Orleans Hornets center Emeka Okafor. Parker added 20 points and a career-high 17 assists.
