Grizzlies vs. Celtics GameThreads

How does Memphis bounce back from a tough loss?

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

There has been a lot of talk in recent days about the Memphis Grizzlies and their ability to finish and win "clutch" games. That is part of what makes them unique- no other team in the NBA is as good at winning those close, final moment games as Memphis is. That is part of why point differential statistics hate them- they are an exception, not a rule.

That needs to apply as well tonight, as they rebound from a tough loss to the Utah Jazz. The Grizzlies must dig deep and carry on as they enter a key back-to-back here before the holidays. Chandler Parsons' return is on the horizon. James Ennis and Mike Conley will hopefully continue to round back in to shape. Sometimes, having a short-term memory about a failure is just another example of being "clutch."

Please act respectfully as we enjoy this 21st century basketball experience. All opinions and "hot takes" are welcome as long as they are communicated intelligently and with attention of the golden rule- "don't be a jerk." Also, please do NOT post any illegal streaming links anywhere in the comments or elsewhere on the site.
