– Grizzlies fall to Lakers in Marc Gasol’s return home
– Player and team trends so far this season
– We provide an update on where the Grizzlies record stands compared to our pre-season predictions to this point

With several significant contributors sidelined with injuries for the foreseeable future, more of the Grizzlies workload will rest on the broad shoulders of Jonas Valanciunas. Let’s take a look at what that could mean for the starting big man, and the Grizzlies as a whole.
Ja Morant is a superstar. He’s ready now. Are you ready, Memphis?
In this installment of the Backdoor Cut Show, the guys discuss what they liked in the Grizzlies’ preseason games against the Hawks. They also give their over/under predictions for the ENITRE NBA. It’s such a special show that we’ve broken it down into two parts, just for you.
The Backdoor Cut crew is joined by Shawn Coleman (@StatsSAC), host of Locked on Grizzlies and contributor for Grizzly Bear Blues, to discuss the preseason opening win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. We marvel at Ja Morant’s efficiency and go through the roster to give our thoughts on each player’s performance and overall team performance on both ends. We wrap it up by discussing who has caught our eye around the league, before giving Grizzlies season predictions.
Jackson Frank (@jackfrank_jjf) joins the show and breaks down the game of each of the Grizzlies new additions. He also gives us some draft prospects to keep an eye on for 2021. You can find Jackson’s work on Dime Uproxx, The Step Back, his personal Patreon page, and more.
The guys chop it up and give their predictions for the Grizzlies through MLK day, round-table style (6-8 was the prediction). Each of us came up with our own starting lineup that we would like to see and we closed it out talking the Wall/Westbrook trade.
The gang’s all here to discuss the Grizzlies moving up in the 2020 NBA Draft not once, but TWICE, and the ensuing moves that were made in Free Agency. This is part 1 of a 2 part pod.
This “99 Cent Store” series has been open for business for the last two offseasons. In the past, we’ve highlighted names like Fred VanVleet (pre breakout), Davis Bertans, and Christian Wood. Not all of the items turn out to be gems (is Nerlens Noel still not a DPOY candidate yet?), but the returns have been largely positive so far. Let’s see if we can keep that momentum going this season.
