This is why it’s time to start the Grizzlies hype.

The Mario Chalmers trade might have saved Dave Joerger’s job. The long time Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley went down because of injury, and Chalmers stepped up big in his absence. When Chalmers is the starter, the Grizzlies are 4-1.

For most of the season, the loss and win column was shoulder to shoulder. However, the Grizzlies managed to pull the win column away with 23 wins on the season and only 19 losses. Players like Chalmers, Zach Randolph, and Marc Gasol has played a huge role in the Grizzlies success. Randolph is averaging 14.1 points per game and has accepted his sixth man role with open arms for the sake of the team.

The all-star Gasol is averaging a team high 16.4 points per game and is looking like an all-star day in and day out. The only player near him in that category is Conley with 15.1 points per game.

The Grizzlies aren’t giving up much per game in a lot of categories, which leads to the close, wild games we’ve inherited. They score 96.2 points per game and allow 98.7. One area they need to improve on in order to continue this success is three point shooting, they are hovering around 32% in that category. Turnovers per game is another key factor they need to improve. The Grizzlies commit 16.7 turnovers per game, and allow 16.1 points a game off of them.

For the third straight year, Joerger’s job was being threatened. Maybe that’s just a tactic used by the Grizzlies’ executive crew to get this team on the right track. The Grizzlies are 9-6 in the last 15 games, so apparently the tactics are working.
