LAST GAME
Grizzlies 99, Magic 94 | 1/25/10 at FedExForum

MEMPHIS, TN – The Memphis Grizzlies again erased a double-digit deficit and ran their franchise-record home winning streak to an NBA season-high tying
                     th
11 games… The 11 -straight home win tied earlier home winning streaks by the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers… Zach Randolph had 23
points (9-of-21 FG) and 19 rebounds (9 offensive) to lead the Grizzlies, who matched their win total from last season (24)… Marc Gasol filled the stat sheet
with 19 points (5-of-8 FG, 9-of-13 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, a career-high four steals and all three of the Grizzlies’ blocked shots… O.J. Mayo had
20 points (7-of-15 FG) and seven rebounds… Dwight Howard led all scorers with 27 points (9-of-14 FG), snagged 15 rebounds and swatted away six
shots, a Grizzlies opponents’ season high… Rashard Lewis chipped in with 19 points (6-of-16 FG), including four three-pointers… Orlando led by as many
as 16 points (44-28) with 7:18 remaining in the second quarter after J.J. Redick connected on a three-pointer, the Magic’s fourth-straight long-range shot…
But Memphis finished the first half on a 24-6 run, capped off by a 63-foot heave by Randolph to beat the buzzer, to take a two-point halftime lead (52-50)…
The Magic took back the lead late in the fourth quarter before Randolph tipped-in an offensive rebound to tie the game at 94 with 1:34 remaining… Randolph
then fed Rudy Gay on a reverse layup on the next possession, and after Vince Carter missed a three on the other end, Mike Conley found Gasol for a
basket and three-point play off a foul to seal the win for Memphis… The Grizzlies recorded their third come-from-behind victory of 16 points or more this
season after the franchise had just two such wins in its first eight seasons in Memphis… Memphis also scored under 100 points in a win for the fourth time in
the last nine games after doing so just three times in the first 34 games of the season… One game after attempting a franchise-record 39 three-pointers on
Jan. 23 at Charlotte, Orlando made 13 of their 35 three-point attempts but missed 10 of their final 11.


PREVIOUS GAME
Grizzlies 86, Thunder 84 | 1/22/10 at FedExForum

MEMPHIS, TN – The Memphis Grizzlies extended their franchise-record home winning streak to 10 games after Rudy Gay connected on a contested, 20-
foot jump shot to give Memphis the lead with 1.3 seconds remaining... The Grizzlies joined the Cleveland Cavaliers (11), the Los Angeles Lakers (11) and
the Phoenix Suns (10) as the only NBA teams thus far to record double-digit home winning streaks this season… Gay finished with 25 points (10-of-22 FG),
his third-straight game of 25-or-more points, while Zach Randolph also scored 25 (9-of-20 FG), his sixth consecutive game of at least 20… Marc Gasol
                                                         th
tallied 15 points (4-of-8 FG) and 13 rebounds for his 18 double-double, surpassing his total from his rookie season… Hasheem Thabeet grabbed a career-
high tying nine rebounds and blocked four shots in a career-high 23 minutes off the bench… Kevin Durant scored 30 points (10-of-23 FG) to lead the
                                                                  th
Thunder… Durant passed LeBron James for his NBA-record 17 consecutive game of 25 points or more by a player under the age of 22… Jeff Green
posted 15 points (7-of-18 FG), eight boards and three blocks… The Thunder went on a 7-0 run to tie the game at 84 with 1:59 left in the game and had
possession after Durant blocked a shot by O.J. Mayo… But Gasol ripped the rebound away from Durant, setting up Gay’s game-winning basket… It marked
the fewest points by the Grizzlies in a win this season, as Memphis improved to 5-2 this season in games decided by two points or less… For the Grizzlies, it
was the fourth game in January that came down to the final shot.

                      Detroit 96, Memphis 74 – Oct. 28 at FedExForum, Memphis, Tenn.
                      Marc Gasol led the Memphis Grizzlies with 21 points (6-of-9 FG) and 15 rebounds (one shy of tying his career high), but Memphis shot just 36.1 percent
                      from the field and fell in their regular season opener, 96-74, against the Detroit Pistons… With the loss, the Grizzlies remained winless in regular season
                      openers since the franchise relocated to Memphis prior to the 2001-02 season… The franchise’s ninth consecutive season-opening loss set a new NBA

Memphis Grizzlies 2009‐10 Regular Season Game Notes                                                                                                                              3
JUST THE QUICK TEAM FACTS
• Memphis is currently in sole possession of the eighth and final seed in the Western Conference, the first time since the Grizzlies made the 2005-06 playoffs that the
  team has risen this far in the standings… The Grizzlies are only 1.5 games away from the fourth seed.
• Memphis has won a franchise-record 11-straight games at FedExForum, besting the previous team record of seven consecutive home wins (Jan. 2-25, 2004)… The
  Grizzlies are tied with the Cleveland Cavaliers (Nov. 14-Dec. 30) and Los Angeles Lakers (Nov. 17-Dec. 22) for the longest home winning streak in the NBA this
  season.
• The last team to defeat the Grizzlies at FedExForum was the Boston Celtics, who escaped with a five-point win (110-105) 43 days ago on Dec. 14, 2009.
• Memphis had to come back from a 16-point deficit to earn their franchise-record 11th-straight home win against Orlando on Monday, the third time this season the
  Grizzlies have overcome such a sizable margin (-16 on Dec. 8 vs. Cleveland, -18 on Jan. 12 vs. LA Clippers)… No other NBA team has as many such come-from-
  behind victories… Before this year, the Grizzlies had just two such wins in their first eight seasons in Memphis.
• The Grizzlies have won seven of their last nine games overall, with the two losses (Jan. 9 at Charlotte, Jan. 20 at New Orleans) each decided by two points on the
  road.
• In those nine games, Memphis has won four times when scoring under 100 points… The team only did that three times in its first 34 games this season.
• All five Southwest Division teams are at least three games above .500… There are only five such teams in the Eastern Conference.
• Memphis is five games above .500 this late in the NBA season for the first time since the end of the 2005-06 season, when the team finished 49-33.
• Playing in their 44th game of the season, a Grizzlies victory would surpass the club’s win total from last season (24-58)… The Grizzlies averaged 22.7 wins over the
  past three seasons (2006-07 – 2008-09).
• Memphis has won 23 of its last 34 games (.676) after a 1-8 start and has the third-best winning percentage in the NBA after Nov. 11… The Grizzlies are 22-11
  since waiving Allen Iverson on Nov. 17.
• The Grizzlies have won 14 of their last 18 games, the club’s best stretch since winning 14 of its final 18 games in the 2005-06 season (March 17-April 19, 2006).
• Memphis has five winning streaks of three games or more this season… The Grizzlies had a combined total of three winning streaks of at least three games in the
  previous three seasons (2006-09).
• The Grizzlies are 8-0 at home this season against opponents with losing records… Memphis has not lost at home to a team with a losing record since March 7,
  2009 vs. Philadelphia (110-105).
• Memphis finished its season-long four-game homestand (Jan. 12-18) a perfect 4-0, the first time the Grizzlies have ever swept a homestand of four games or more.
• Grizzlies Head Coach Lionel Hollins won the Western Conference Coach of the Month Award after guiding Memphis to a 9-4 record (.692) in December, the best
  December record in franchise history and the sixth-best month (by percentage) in the 15-year history of the club… Eight of Memphis’ 13 opponents during the month
  had winning records.
• The Grizzlies are the only team in the NBA with two players (Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay) averaging over 20 points per game and the only NBA team with three
  players (O.J. Mayo) posting over 18 points per game.
• Memphis is on pace to win 46 games this season, which would be a 22-game improvement over last season’s campaign (24-58 in 2008-09)… The Grizzlies’ two
  best one-year improvements include a 22-game leap from the 2002-03 season (28-54) to the 2003-04 season, when the team won a franchise-record 50 games,
  and a 14-game jump in between the strike-shortened 1998-99 season (8-42) and the 1999-00 season (22-60).
• Memphis ranks fourth in the NBA in scoring (103.8 points) and fifth in field goal percentage (.478) after averaging 93.9 points on 45.4 percent shooting in 2008-
  09… At this pace, the Grizzlies would set franchise records for both categories.
• Memphis is 19-3 when shooting a higher field goal percentage than its opponent this season… However, the Grizzlies are 5-16 when they are outshot by their
  opponent.
• Memphis has done most of its damage from inside the paint this season… The Grizzlies, who lead the NBA in points in the paint (52.2), have scored 50-plus from
  inside 29 times, 60-plus points nine times and 70-plus points once, a season-best 72 points in the paint on Dec. 22 vs. Golden State… On the flip side, Memphis
  places T-26th in the league in three-point makes (4.1) and 29th in three-point attempts (12.0) per game.
• After finishing last in the NBA in rebounding last season (38.8), the Grizzlies rank fourth in the league in the category in 2009-10 (43.6)… The team places second
  in the league in offensive rebounding (13.4) and T-4th in opponents’ rebounds per game (39.0)… The rebounding margin (+4.6) is the best in the league.
• Memphis has been outrebounded in only 13 games this season (6-7 record).
• The Grizzlies have had double-digit leads in nine of their 19 losses this season but have also come back to win seven games in which they trailed by double
  figures.


JUST THE QUICK PLAYER FACTS
• Zach Randolph is one of three NBA players (Chris Bosh, Tim Duncan) averaging at least 20 points and 10 rebounds per game.
• In his first season in Memphis, Zach Randolph is on pace to set a new franchise record for overall rebounding (career-high 11.5 rebounds)… Shareef Abdur-
  Rahim (10.1 rebounds in 1999-00) is the only other Grizzlies player to average double-digit rebounds.
• Zach Randolph is averaging a double-double (20.9 points, 11.5 rebounds), which should he keep pace would be his fourth consecutive season posting a double-
  double average… Only Shareef Abdur-Rahim has averaged a double-double for the Grizzlies over the course of a single season (20.3 points, 10.1 rebounds in
  1999-00).
• Zach Randolph scored 19 points and pulled down 20 rebounds on Dec. 11 vs. Oklahoma City and established new franchise records for offensive rebounds in a
  game (11), offensive rebounds in a half (10, 2nd), offensive rebounds in a quarter (7, 3rd), rebounds in a half (16, 2nd) and rebounds in a quarter (13, 3rd).
• Marc Gasol’s well-documented training regimen in the offseason has paid dividends in the 2009-10 season and, in his second NBA season, is one the leading
  candidates for the Most Improved Player Award… The 7-1, 265-pounder is averaging 14.9 points, 9.6 rebounds (16th in the NBA) and 1.63 blocks on 60.4 percent
  shooting (2nd) from the field this season.
• Marc Gasol recorded his 18th double-double in the 42nd game of the season (Jan. 22 vs. Oklahoma City), surpassing his double-double total from his 82-game
  rookie season campaign.
• Rudy Gay exploded for a career-best 41 points (15-of-28 FG) on Dec. 13 at Miami, tying the fourth-highest point total in Grizzlies history and matching the
  franchise-best total in a victory (Mike Miller, March 17, 2006 vs. Denver).
• O.J. Mayo poured in a career-high 40 points (17-of-25 FG) on Nov. 1 at Denver, the eighth 40-point outing in franchise history and the first since Pau Gasol scored
  43 points on Jan. 11 at Golden State… Mayo also became the first player in team history to record a 40-point game with zero turnovers.
• The Grizzlies’ roster features four seven-foot centers, each from different continents (Marc Gasol, Europe; Hasheem Thabeet, Africa; Hamed Haddadi, Asia;
  Steven Hunter, North America).
• Of the 14 Grizzlies players, 10 were born in 1985 or later… Memphis entered the season as the NBA’s youngest and least-experienced team.

2009-10 TEAM NOTES

GRIZZLIES ROARING
The Grizzlies are one of the NBA’s hottest, most-improved teams this season and, just past the halfway point of the 2009-10 season, have already tied the
team’s win total from 2008-09… Here is a look at the team’s record compared to the last three seasons:

                                                                      TEAM RECORD, SINCE 2006-07

* - Franchise record is +22 (50 wins in 2003-04 after 28 wins in 2002-03)

FRANCHISE-RECORD 11-GAME HOME WINNING STREAK
The Grizzlies are riding a franchise-record 11-game winning streak at FedExForum, breaking the 2003-04 Grizzlies’ club-record seven-game home run from
Jan. 2-25, 2004 at The Pyramid… Memphis is one of four NBA teams, joining the Cleveland Cavaliers (11), Los Angeles Lakers (11) and Phoenix Suns (10),
to post a double-digit home winning streak this season… Memphis has not lost at home since a five-point loss on Dec. 14 vs. Boston… Since then, the
Grizzlies have put on quite a show for the home crowd:

MEMPHIS HOT IN THE WINTER
As the weather in Memphis has turned cold, the Grizzlies have become one of the hottest teams in the NBA… Since its slow start (1-8), the team has gone
23-11 (.676), which is tied for the league’s third-best record after Nov. 11:

UPWARD TREND
Memphis’ record has improved in every month this season, and at 9-3 with four games left to play in January, the Grizzlies are already assured of
consecutive winning months for the first time since March (10-6) and April (8-1) of the 2005-06 season, also the year of the team’s most-recent playoff
appearance… Fans are starting to take notice of the Grizzlies’ continued improvement… Below is a look at the team’s month-by-month record:

BACK ON TRACK
Memphis has recovered from early-season turmoil and has bounced back by going 23-11 after starting the season 1-8 (22-11 after waiving Allen Iverson on
Nov. 17)… Memphis has three three-game winning streaks (Nov. 14-20, Dec. 2-8, Dec. 18-22) and two season-high four-game winning streaks (Dec. 28-
Jan. 5, Jan. 12-18) during that span… The Grizzlies had a total of three winning streaks of three games or more in the previous three seasons (2006-07 –

2008-09)… Last season, it took the Grizzlies until their 75 game to record multiple three-game winning streaks… Here is a look at some of Memphis’
improvements since getting back on track:

BEARS ON THE GLASS
Memphis has been a completely different team on the boards this year compared to last season… The Grizzlies rank fourth in the NBA in total rebounds
                                                    th
(43.6), second in offensive rebounds (13.4) and T-4 in opponents’ rebounds per game (39.0)… That rebound margin (+4.6) is the best in the league…
Last season, Memphis finished last in the league in rebounding (38.8)… The Grizzlies have finished a season with a positive rebounding margin once in
franchise history (+0.3, 1999-00) and have never averaged more than 41.8 (2003-04) in a season… Below is a look at how the Grizzlies have improved on
the glass and other areas this season:

OFFENSIVE TURNAROUND
After finishing second-to-last in the NBA with 93.9 points per game last season, the Grizzlies acquired a proven scorer in forward Zach Randolph… That
and other offseason additions have paid dividends on offense for the Grizzlies, who rank fourth in the NBA this season in scoring (franchise-record 103.8
points per game) and fifth in field goal percentage (franchise-record .478)… Memphis scored over 115 points in three-straight games from Oct. 30-Nov. 2
(118.0 average), the first time that has happened in franchise history, and then did it again from Dec. 28-Jan. 2 (121.7 average).

GRIZZ STARTERS SHINING
The large majority of the Grizzlies’ scoring this season has been done by its starting unit of Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, O.J. Mayo, Marc Gasol and Mike
Conley… Memphis’ regular starting lineup has accounted for 80.3 percent of the team’s total points scored this season, which is the highest percentage in
the NBA… On Jan. 18 vs. Phoenix in the Eighth Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Game, the Grizzlies’ starters scored a combined 110 points (105 from
Randolph, Gay, Mayo and Gasol), breaking the franchise record (106, April 14, 2007 vs. Denver).

CRUCIAL THIRD QUARTER
The third quarter has been critical in the Grizzlies’ success this season… Memphis is 17-4 this season when winning or tying the third quarter and 6-14 when
outscored in the third… Here is a breakdown of Memphis’ scoring by quarter this season:

BENCH WOES
One weakness during this season for the Grizzlies has been production off the bench… Memphis’ reserves have averaged 19.6 points this season while
opponents’ benches average 33.0… The Grizzlies’ bench has outscored its opposing counterparts six times this season… Here is a breakdown of the

YOUNG GRIZZLIES
Memphis began the season as the league’s youngest and least-experienced team (and has since gotten younger after waiving 34-year-old Allen Iverson),
but Grizzlies Head Coach Lionel Hollins refuses to let his team use youth as an excuse for failure… As a 23-year-old, Hollins was the starting guard for the
1976-77 NBA Champion Portland Trail Blazers squad, which also featured a 24-year-old Bill Walton, a 25-year-old Maurice Lucas and a 21-year-old
Johnny Davis, who is now an assistant coach for the Grizzlies… Much like Memphis, Portland’s roster had just one player over the age of 30… Below is a
look at the NBA’s youngest- and least-experienced teams on opening night this season:

The Grizzlies’ roster features four rookies – Hasheem Thabeet (2 overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft), DeMarre Carroll (27 ), Sam Young (36 ) and
                    th
Lester Hudson (58 overall by the Boston Celtics)... Of the 14 Grizzlies players this season, 10 of them were born in 1985 or later.

INTERCONTINENTAL FRONTCOURT
The Grizzlies enter the 2009-10 season with four seven-foot centers on its roster, each from a different continent… With Marc Gasol (7-1, Europe), Hamed
Haddadi (7-2, Asia), Steven Hunter (7-0, North America) and Hasheem Thabeet (7-3, Africa), it marks the first time in club history that the team has carried
four seven-footers on the roster at the same time… Thabeet is the tallest player in Grizzlies history, while Memphis is only NBA team with four seven-footers
on its roster.

Zach Randolph could be well on his way to shattering even more franchise rebounding records… Z-Bo is posting a career-best 11.5 rebounds (4 in the
NBA) and leads the NBA in offensive rebounds with 198 (career-high 4.6 per game)… Should Randolph keep pace, he would set the Grizzlies single-
season record for total rebounds (825, Shareef Abdur-Rahim in 1999-00), rebounding average (10.1, Abdur-Rahim in 1999-00) and total offensive
rebounds (238, Pau Gasol in 2001-02).

RESPECT FOR RANDOLPH
Despite averaging a double-double in each of his last four NBA seasons, Zach Randolph was not selected as one of the 24 Western Conference forwards
appearing on the 2010 NBA All-Star Ballot… However, this season, the 6-9, 260-pounder has shown that not only is he one of the West’s top forwards but
deserves to play in the All-Star Game itself… Among the 24 Western Conference forwards that were chosen over Randolph to appear on the ballot (and
qualify among NBA statistical leaders), Z-Bo ranks fourth in scoring (team-high 20.9 points), first in rebounding (career-high 11.5) and second in double-
doubles (28)… Randolph is the only player in the Western Conference averaging at least 20 points and 10 rebounds… The nine-year veteran is seeking his
first All-Star berth.

Z-BO KEY TO GRIZZLIES SUCCESS
The better Zach Randolph plays, the more success the Grizzlies have had… In 24 wins this season, Randolph is averaging 23.3 points and 12.2 rebounds
on 50.8 percent shooting, while the Grizzlies are 20-6 when Randolph scores 20-plus points (4-13 when scoring less than 20) and 4-1 when he goes for 30-
plus.

Z-BOOST
Offseason acquisition Zach Randolph wasted no time this season providing the Grizzlies with a presence down low… Z-Bo, who is seeking a double-double
for the fourth consecutive season (team-high 20.9 points, career-high 11.5 rebounds), could be just the second Grizzlies player to ever average a double-
double, joining Shareef Abdur-Rahim (20.3 points and 10.1 rebounds in 1999-00).

RANDOLPH MAKING A GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION
Zach Randolph has had an immediate impact in his first season in Memphis… The nine-year veteran already has three 30-15 games this season, two shy
of the franchise record held by Pau Gasol:

ZACH ATTACK
Zach Randolph has been a consistent double-double performer for the Grizzlies this season, as he has been throughout his career… Randolph leads the
                                             th
team in double-doubles this season (28, 4 in the NBA)… Since becoming a full-time starter, Randolph has been one of the NBA’s surest double-double
threats, placing eighth in the league in the category since the start of the 2003-04 season:

A DYNAMIC DUO
Rudy Gay and O.J. Mayo have provided huge scoring punches this season, and both have exploded for career highs this season… Gay posted a career-
high 41 points (15-of-28 FG) on Dec. 13 at Miami, tying the fourth-highest total in Grizzlies history… One month earlier, Mayo poured in a career-high 40
points (17-of-25 FG) on Nov. 1 at Denver, which was the first 40-point performance by a Grizzlies player since Pau Gasol scored 43 points on Jan. 11, 2008
at Golden State… Mayo also became the first player in franchise history to record a 40-point game with zero turnovers… The Grizzlies are one of only two
NBA teams (Denver’s Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith) with two players who have scored 40-plus points in a game this season… Below is a list of all the
40-point games in franchise history:

CRASHING THE BOARDS
Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol have become one the most-feared rebounding tandems in the NBA this season… Randolph ranks fourth in the league in
                                                    th
rebounding (career-high 11.5), while Gasol places 16 with 9.6 boards… Together, Gasol and Randolph are tied as the best rebounding duo in the league…
Here is a look at the best-rebounding twosomes this season:

                                                           NBA’S TOP REBOUNDING DUOS, 2009-10

                 Zach Randolph (11.5) and Marc Gasol (9.6)                              Memphis Grizzlies                           21.1
                 Marcus Camby (12.0) and Chris Kaman (9.1)                             Los Angeles Clippers                         21.1
                   Joakim Noah (12.1) and Luol Deng (7.4)                                 Chicago Bulls                             19.5

MARC YOUR BALLOTS
One of the leading candidates for the NBA Most Improved Player Award, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol has seen his rigorous offseason training pay off and is
                                                                                                                      th
playing at an high caliber level in his second NBA season… The 7-1 Spaniard is averaging 14.9 points, 9.6 rebounds (16 in the NBA) and a team-high 1.63
blocks per game… Gasol also ranks second the NBA in field goal percentage, shooting 60.4 percent from the field… Under the training of Grizzlies Strength
and Conditioning Coach Jason Biles, Gasol slimmed down from 287 pounds and 22 percent body fat to a lean, mean 262 and 14 percent, regularly running
eight miles on the Collseroz By Tibidabo mountains in Spain this summer to improve his conditioning.

MAKING HIS MARC IN NBA HISTORY
How impressive has Marc Gasol been this season? The second-year center is vying to become just the sixth player in NBA history to average at least 14
points and 10 rebounds while shooting at least 60 percent from the field in a single season… The other five players previously to have accomplished this
feat are Wilt Chamberlain (1966-67), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1979-80), Artis Gilmore (1980-85), Shaquille O’Neal (2004-05) and Dwight Howard (2006-
07)… What’s also interesting is that Gasol is reaching those totals sooner in his NBA career (second season) than any of the above names.

¡VIVA GASOL!
In his second NBA season, Marc Gasol could accomplish something that very few European-born players have in his lifetime… Since Gasol was born in
1985, only four European-born NBA players have averaged a double-double in a single season, including Carlos Boozer (Germany), Vlade Divac (Serbia),
Arvydas Sabonis (Lithuania) and James Donaldson (United Kingdom)… Boozer has posted a double-double average four times (2003-04, 2006-09) and
is primed to do it a fifth time this season… Divac averaged a double-double three times in his career, twice with the Los Angeles Lakers (1993-95) and once
with the Sacramento Kings (1998-99)… Sabonis posted a double-double average with the Portland Trail Blazers in 1997-98, while Donaldson doubled up for
the Mavericks in 1986-87.

GASOL THE GRIZZLIES’ “BIG DIPPER”
Marc Gasol scored 16 points, shooting 7-for-7 from the field, and grabbed 15 rebounds in the Grizzlies' 118-90 win at Miami, marking the second time this
season that Gasol has posted a 15/15 game without missing a shot from the field… He scored 17 points with 16 rebounds and shot 8-for-8 against the
Minnesota Timberwolves on Nov. 14… According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the only other player in NBA history with two such games in the same season
was Wilt Chamberlain (six in 1966-1967, four in 1972-1973).

GASOL 2.0
                                                                                                       nd
Marc Gasol leads all sophomores in field goal percentage (.604) and rebounding (9.6), while ranking T-2 in double-doubles (18) and third in blocks
(1.63)… Below is a chart stacking Gasol’s stats against his fellow sophomores:

 •   Under Hollins, Memphis posted its highest monthly rebounding average (45.5 in December) in franchise history (44.0, February 1998).

 BIOGRAPHY
 When Lionel Hollins took the reins as the 11th head coach in Grizzlies history on Jan. 25, 2009, he immediately set out to establish a team identity founded on playing hard
 and competing as a team every night.

 By the end of the 2008-09 season, Hollins had made his mark, instilling his work ethic on a young and hungry roster. The Grizzlies posted their first winning month (5-4 record
 in April) in three years and several of the team’s younger players responded to Hollins’ tutelage. Most notably, point guard Mike Conley, the fourth overall pick in the 2007
 NBA Draft, posted 14.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 5.7 assists in 39 games under Hollins’ direction after averaging 7.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists before the coaching
 change.

 The Grizzlies finished the year 13-26 (.333) under Hollins after starting the season 11-32 (.256).

 For Hollins, it was a new experience with a familiar team. The 21-year NBA coaching veteran was an original member of the Vancouver franchise and was a staple on the
 coaching sidelines for the following 12 years (1995-07). Hollins, who conducted his first training camp as head coach in October, also served as the club’s interim head coach
 on two separate occasions. Hollins guided Vancouver to an 18-42 finish (.300) in 1999-00, replacing Brian Hill after the team started the season 4-18, and again took over
 for four games in 2004-05 following the resignation of Hall of Famer Hubie Brown. Entering the 2009-10 season, Hollins owns an overall coaching record of 31-72 (.301),
 including two stints as Grizzlies interim head coach.

 Prior to joining the Grizzlies, the Arizona State graduate spent seven years with the Phoenix Suns (1988-95) as an assistant coach under Cotton Fitzsimmons and later Paul
 Westphal. During that time, Phoenix compiled an overall record of 394-180 (.686) and never won fewer than 53 games in a single season. The Suns won a franchise-record
 62 games in the 1992-93 season and represented the Western Conference in the 1993 NBA Finals against the Chicago Bulls. After sitting out the 2007-08 season, Hollins
 returned the sidelines in 2008 as an assistant under Milwaukee Bucks Head Coach Scott Skiles.

 The Arkansas City, Kan. native has honed his straightforward, no-nonsense approach by serving under three NBA Coaches of the Year, including Brown (1977, 2005),
 Fitzsimmons (1978, 1989) and Mike Fratello (1986) and was on the coaching staff when Brown and Fitzsimmons were honored with the award a second time. In addition, as
 a 10-year NBA veteran (1975-85), Hollins was led by several notable head coaches, including the NBA’s all-time coaching wins leader and Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkens, Hall
 of Famers Jack Ramsay, Billy Cunningham, Chuck Daly, as well as Bill Fitch and Paul Silas.

 Selected sixth overall in the first round of the 1975 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, Hollins earned a spot on the 1976 All-Rookie First Team and won an NBA
 Championship as a starter for the Trail Blazers in 1977, where he was a teammate of current Grizzlies Assistant Coach Johnny Davis. A year later, he was an NBA All-Star
 while also being named to the NBA’s All-Defensive First Team. Hollins averaged 11.6 points, 4.5 assists and 1.56 steals over 673 career games with Portland, Philadelphia
 76ers, San Diego Clippers, Detroit Pistons and Houston Rockets.

 Hollins has been inducted into the Halls of Fame of the NCAA, Arizona State University, Nevada High School Basketball, Southern Nevada Sports and the Pac-10. In
 addition, he has been named one of the top 100 athletes of Nevada and one of the top 150 athletes of Arizona. His No. 14 jersey was retired by the Trail Blazers on April 18,
 2007.

 Hollins, who has maintained a residence in the Bluff City, has been extremely active in the Memphis community. He has been a regular participant in Community Investment
 and Grizzlies Foundation programs, and has established the Lionel Hollins Bowling for Backpacks event, which has raised thousands of dollars to purchase school supplies
 and uniforms for underprivileged youth since its inception in 2003.

 Hollins, 56, is married and has four children.
