It doesn't have to be all doom and gloom for Memphis fans. Yes, we've had to suffer through three tough losses one after another. But if we stop and take a minute to think we'll all realize that this season has been a season full of success. We've seen the best start to a season in franchise history, a home winning streak that went on to be the longest home streak in franchise history, and Marc Gasol became the Grizzlies' first ever All-Star starter.
The Grizzlies also have an outside chance of setting a new franchise record for regular season wins. The current record stands at 56 wins in the 2012-13 season. It's highly unlikely that Memphis will break that record as they currently stand at 50 wins, meaning they would have to go 7-1 for the remainder of the season. But look on the bright side: it isn't impossible yet.
This recent losing streak has been a struggle. But on the whole, this season has been a season of great memories, hope, expectation, and success.
