The Memphis Grizzlies are in excellent position heading into the the second half of the season. At 19-15, the Grizzlies stand seventh in the Western Conference. While many would have expected them to fall out of the playoff race with Zach Randolph out, the Grizzlies have held strong.
A .500 record to this point would have been reasonable, but they've worked their way into the thick of the playoff race.
The Grizzlies are benefiting from solid performances from key players to remain this competitive. Marc Gasol springboarded his career year into an All-Star Game appearance. Rudy Gay has taken the reins of the team with Randolph out, transforming the offense. Mike Conley and Tony Allen have been great defensively.
